You may be wondering how to lose belly fat after having a baby. In actual fact you are because you have reached this page by some means, but, don’t panic.
Now, I am male. So obviously, I do not know from personal experience. Just what it is like to have the excess on your stomach due to childbirth. But, I certainly do know what it is like to gain a lot of belly fat. In what it is, let’s face it, is a relatively short space of time. As I piled on the pounds due to becoming disabled.
Belly Fat, It Is The Most Stubborn
Now, belly fat is one of the most stubborn fats. It is irritating and easy to put on fats that there surely is. This is very common in men, but also with females usually after pregnancy has ended.
It may have certainly been your choice to get pregnant in the first place. But you did not maybe expect nor have the ability to see what it would be like. For your physical appearance once the baby was born.
You see, this is actually a major concern for a lot of people. As they didn’t plan to look any different afterward. But, in most cases, it turns out to be somewhat of an unwanted shock when they give birth and do NOT look exactly the same as they did before.
If you think about it, carrying something the size of a baby inside your stomach. Well, it is obviously going to have a bad impact on the exterior of your body.
Not least stretch marks and a larger than you want stomach. Some (very few women) They get lucky and literally return to normal within a very short space of time. My caregiver, for example, is one.
She remained petite after giving birth to not one but three children. And all of this without even one minute of exercise or no hint of a diet of any kind, whatsoever.
Like I said you get the lucky ones and the “normal” category of people. Which I am guessing is the category that you fit into seeing as you are reading this page.
How To Lose Belly Fat After Having A Baby
The first thing that one must address is the diet. Remember your body has been sharing all of its nutrients and vitamins for the last 9 months so it is always a great idea to get a healthy diet menu set up with which to pursue and this will address most if not all of the actually altered vitamin and mineral levels in your body.
This is not advice for those of you who have had complications with/during your pregnancy by the way.
If you have then you really should seek medical advice from your healthcare professional. When this diet is in place and you follow it. Then you will love the feeling of happiness and good health that you will have. Just whilst your bodies vitamins and mineral levels return to the normal (if not better than they were) range.
You must eat well to feel well, right? Yes, this is a given particularly after childbirth has occurred. You will definitely begin to see the changes in your belly fat through this alteration alone.
It will get rid of a lot of your fat. However, it will definitely not rid you of the awful thing completely. Certainly not without an exercise regime in place as well.
But you need not worry as you do not need to go to the gym to do any form of exercise as we know with a newborn it would be nigh on impossible.
It would quite obviously be an expense to add on to the already extra expense that having newborn entails and very often new mothers focus is 100% on their baby so finding the motivation to exercise anywhere outside of the home environment would be very difficult indeed.
Yes, relax. There are a lot of home exercises that you can do to lose weight and try to reclaim that figure that you had or to even use this event to get in even better shape than you were before.
Not just in physical appearance but in general health also. In fact, why not use your childbirth event as a reason/excuse. To jump into a new healthier version of your former self?
Why not get an extra positive out of what is already a challenge. That of bringing new life to the world. The key has to be in “new life”. So maybe do them with that and it would be perfect all around.
You would be cementing your intention to be there for your child in all of his/her future. YES, you most definitely would. This has to be another win-win.
Another simple yet very effective remedy to decrease the unwanted belly fat is. Wait for it, yes, to do something really simple. To breastfeed. This helps to realign the uterus as it is all out of shape from carrying the baby.
It will help to lessen your stomach fat. And, it will have you well on your way to having a flat stomach. Which is what in honestly most people have a craving for. Especially after having given birth to their child.
Once you have got your diet under control. All that you need to have is the other half of the equation. Then, your weight loss attempt will be a success. What am I talking about? The exercise of course. More on that in other posts. There are some great articles in the main header of this site.
