Losing Pregger Pounds Safely

Losing the weight gained during pregnancy is often just as daunting as labor itself. Find out the safest ways to get your figure back after labor.. Learn more at eVitamins, the largest online health UK superstore.

Pregnancy is one of the best phases in a woman’s life. A lot of ladies will do anything just to get to this stage, and many more would be more than willing to give up just about anything just to ensure the good health of their little one. This is why a lot of females find it okay to gain weight during pregnancy, so they can ensure that their baby will get the the maximum amount of nutrients that they can.

However, this isn’t to say that a lot of women are too excited about the idea of gaining some pounds. A lot of expecting mothers aren’t all too keen on having to go a couple of sizes bigger than what they already are. Some also have certain reservations because of their line of work which will need them to be fit and look their best at all times.

Luckily, it's highly possible for women to lose weight after giving birth. You’ve seen it happen with celebrities who tend to shed their baby weight in just a couple of weeks. This is why worrying about gaining some pounds shouldn’t be at the top of your worries when getting pregnant.

According to experts, women normally gain about 25 to 35 pounds during pregnancy. This is the average gain weight that most women experience, although, some new moms tend to gain extra an 10 to 12 pounds on top of the aforementioned amount. After giving birth, most women tend to shed around 12.5 to 14 pounds, leaving just about half of the initial gain weight to deal with.

Whatever your case is, whether you're pregnant and gaining or postpartum and losing, you’ll most likely want to get rid of all of the weight you gained when carrying. It’s not unusual that new moms would want to wear their pre-pregnancy clothes and size again, which makes the desire to shed baby weight very common. It is also an important health move, as some mothers tend to retain weight after pregnancy.

But as everyone knows, losing weight can’t be done in a snap. It takes a fairly good amount of effort and dedication to shed some pounds, whether you’ve gained it for a good cause or not. The great thing is that it doesn’t take a miracle to get your old body back. A couple of easy techniques can actually help you do this.

If you’ll be breastfeeding, you’ll find losing weight somewhat easy. This is a time tested and proven effective technique. According to experts, this simple activity will help you burn up to 600 calories a day, which is already equal to at least two hours of aerobic exercise. Another reason to this is that the fat accumulated during pregnancy is used to produce milk, allowing you to get rid of the extra pounds. It also helps release hormones and shrinks the uterus back to its normal size, aiding the process of losing weight.

The only downside about breastfeeding for weight loss is that it can’t be relied on entirely if you want to get back to your old shape. Sure, it can help you shed some pounds, but this doesn’t mean that it’s all that you should do to lose weight. You will still have to monitor your diet, especially since you will still be supplying nutrients to yourself and your baby while breastfeeding. Being careless about what you put in your body will not aid or boost the weight loss process. You also can’t skimp out on your food intake because that wouldn’t be healthy either. So nix any crash diets, fasting or any other lose weight fast plans.

Aside from a healthy diet, to ensure weight loss after pregnancy, you will need to get physical. Exercise has always been an effective means to burn calories and lose some weight. This is why you will have to actually work to get your old body back.

To make things easier, though, you can always get in a weight loss program that is specially designed for new moms. This is what most celebrities actually do to get back to shape in just a couple of weeks. The process can vary from one program to another, so looking for something that you can actually work with is highly important.

Whichever avenue you plan to go with - the most important thing to remember is that your baby will be feeding off of the nutrients you provide for him. Supplements like fat burners, caffeine, energy boosters, metabolism boosters, guarana, taurine and others of the same sort have no place in your baby's diet, and if you're breastfeeding then they don't belong in your diet either. Losing pregnancy weight is not about cheating, it's not about fast results and it's not about vanity; losing your baby weight is all about being healthy and being safe.

In any case, losing weight after pregnancy is possible. It may take some effort and time but you will surely get to it as long as you’re willing and determined to succeed. Just remember that your weight was put on in selflessness, and that even though your child may now be born, living and well, returning yourself to health is the second half of the process.
