For many women out there, maintaining a healthier weight following pregnancy is usually a major challenge, just as taking care of your baby, adapting to a new lifestyle, and recovery from a miscarriage can still be overwhelming. However, returning to a healthier weight after birth is still very important for you, particularly if you either want to become a mother or become pregnant again in the future. One thing you need to learn is that during and during breastfeeding, it is normal for the body to shift, whereas these changes also include: stretch marks, a larger waist and hips, and a softer abdomen. Yet women would be 1-6 pounds overweight on average following birth. The question now is, what is the true cause of this unexpected post-birth weight gain? Yeah, the plain fact is that the same hormones that helped sustain your pregnancy are also responsible for changes in the body you see during pregnancy. But never fear that these changes may be reversed quickly, but others can take more time or, depending on the body, may even become permanent.

A typical healthy pregnancy weight gain ranges from 25 to 35 pounds, according to the report, which includes: the fetus, placenta, amniotic fluid, breast tissue, enlargement of the uterus and any extra fat stores. So if you began your pregnancy with this natural weight gain, then it shouldn't take you longer than a few months to get back to your normal weight after birth, especially if you watch the foods you consume and exercise regularly as well. Although if you were still overweight before your birth, it would take a lot longer for you to lose weight, maybe up to a year.

However, here's how to lose weight after pregnancy:

1. Keep a healthy well-balanced diet

After birth, it is advised that you consume more vegetables and fruits along with other foods as they can help you lose weight and improve the consistency of your breast milk as well. Meat, legumes, low-fat dairy products, almonds, eggs, whole-wheat flour, oranges and leafy greens are some of these foods.

2. Drink enough water

Do you know that drinking enough water will help you remain hydrated, improve your metabolism, and fulfill your cravings as well? Water, especially for breastfeeding moms for milk production, is vital for anyone trying to lose weight. Therefore, a healthy start is to drink at least 1 to 2 liters of water per day.

3. Exercise regularly

The truth is that you can not lose weight faster by exercising alone, but it will help bring the metabolism of your body under check. Therefore, consider taking a stroll, jogging, swimming, or cycling if you want to lose weight and improve your fitness.

4. Control your cravings for sugar and carbs

High intakes of sugar and processed carbohydrates boost weight, which can cause diabetes, cancer and heart disease, according to a study. Therefore, minimize the use of sugar and processed carbohydrates, as these two foods increase the body's calories.

5. Breastfeeding the child

This simply relies, though, on how much milk the body produces. Breastfeeding can help you burn over 500 calories a day and also helps to promote the release of hormones that can help shorten the post-baby stomach and uterus. Yet your body has less work to do after you quit breastfeeding, and that means you are burning less calories relative to when you were pregnant.
