New mothers all over the country want to know how to get rid of baby weight safely. By “baby weight,” we’re talking about the weight that all new mothers gain during the course of pregnancy. While the extra weight is meant to only be temporary, it often stays with new moms for a long while after they give birth. This can be troublesome for the mom, especially if her career requires a trim figure. In any case, new moms would appreciate it if they could get rid of baby weight as quickly as possible.
Celebrity moms seem to be really good at getting rid of baby weight. After only a few weeks after giving birth, celebrity moms like Jessica Alba, Nicole Richie, and Jennifer Lopez appear on magazine covers looking as though they’ve been single all their lives. It’s no wonder, then, why so many moms wonder how they managed to lose all that baby weight so easily.
That’s easy – these celebrity moms have dietitians, trainers, and can afford the guidance of medical experts who know how to get rid of baby weight safely and quickly. Besides, with millions of dollars to be made out there, celebrity moms naturally don’t want to sit around idling, waiting for the baby weight to get rid of itself. They invest in strict diets, home gyms, and personal trainers – costing them tens of thousands of dollars.
Thankfully, you don’t have to spend that much money to get rid of baby weight. You can get back to your trim figure by remembering a few guidelines. The best part about all of this is that you don’t have to spend much time away from your baby. (Yup, you don’t need to go to the gym at all.)
You may have to check with your doctor first, but substituting some of the food you eat with healthier alternatives can help get rid of baby weight faster. That means more fish, fruit, whole grains, and veggies, and less soda, junk food, and sugary desserts. But make sure you don’t go hungry – breastfeeding needs you to consume around 500 more calories each day.
Do some very careful exercise at the home.
Remember that the only way to get rid of baby weight (and all other kinds of extra weight) is to either lower the number of calories you take in each day, or burn them up through a regular exercise regimen. In fact, do both – the results stack up exponentially. As mentioned before, you don’t need to go to a gym – simply carrying a 10-pound baby around for most of the day is good enough exercise. Plus, you do it even on weekends! Add that to the list of chores you need to do for your baby, and you’ll get rid of your baby weight steadily.
Keep your energy levels up.
Making sure you can last through the 3 A.M. feedings needs a lot of energy, so don’t burn out trying to get rid of baby weight too quickly. It usually takes your body to take around 3 to 6 months to return to normal after giving birth, and this is around the same time it takes for you to get used to taking care of your little bundle of joy. Concentrate on taking care of your baby, and the pounds will come off on their own.
Celebrity moms may be able to get rid of all that baby weight (and more) in a matter of weeks, but I doubt you’ll need to get rid of yours that quickly. Remember that your baby needs you, so you owe it to him to take care of him first. Don’t worry – when you do the right thing, good stuff has a way of happening.
