Post Pregnancy Weight Loss Plan
Are you having a hard time losing the weight you
gained during your pregnancy? You are not alone. In fact, women
typically gain about 35 pounds or more during their pregnancy and
although some of this weight is lost postpartum, many new moms are
waiting 9 months or so to even see significant weight loss Quite frustrating, right? Well I have
to be honest with you. Feeling frustrated isn?t going to help you
lose the excess weight. The only thing that will help you lose
weight is an effective post pregnancy weight loss plan.
The most important step of your plan; you have to
change your mind set about dieting ? the post pregnancy weight loss
plan is not a diet ? it is a lifestyle change. It is not about
losing weight by following a restricted fad diet. It is about eating
supportively as well as having an effective fitness plan in place.
It is also about being a mom that cares about her body and wants to
look good but realizes that it will take commitment to burn fat and get back to her postpartum
to check your "bulk", "junk", or "spam" folders, as emails
occasionally get mistakenly filtered.

be sold or rented. Fit Yummy Mummy is a Spam-Free
Step two; you have to focus on making better choices.
Although it is unrealistic for you to avoid all junk food, you must
reduce tempting, highly processed snacks like cookies and chips and
replace them with healthier choices like fruits, veggies and protein
based snacks. You will get the best results when you plan for your
indulgences. In addition, you should drink 8-10 glasses of water a
day. The post pregnancy weight loss plan is about nourishing- not
depriving -your body.
Step three; be consistent.
There is no getting around it, in order to get the best results you
need to eat supportively and add both resistance training and
interval training to your lifestyle. Doing so does not mean you will
be spending hours and hours each day on your post pregnancy weight
loss plan. Not even close. I created the Fit Yummy Mummy Fat Loss System with busy moms like you in mind,
and with this approach you?ll be spending less than 15 minutes a day
on your exercise plan.
Note for breastfeeding moms: while you too should be
consistent in eating supportively ? you need to take in slightly
more calories than non-breastfeeding moms. The recommendation for
breastfeeding moms is typically an intake of 300 calories more than
for non-breastfeeding moms making sure not to go below 1800
calories. Please consult your physician to determine the amount that
is best for you to follow.
When you integrate exercise into your day you will
feel energized and see your body begin to take on a new, lean shape.
Even if you can only fit 10 minutes in per day, you should be doing
some type of short burst fat burning resistance training and interval based
cardiovascular training. A good place to start for maximum results
would be to alternate a day of 15 minutes of resistance training
with a day of 15 minutes of interval based
Step four; have patience. Gimmicks and
fads that promise quick fix results will only take you off the path
to true and lasting fat loss results. It will take a
time for you to lose the post baby weight so be patient with your
body and enjoy the process. Acknowledge small but powerful victories
with each drop in clothing size and every inch you take off your
mommy belly and be proud of the progress that you are making. Do
something special for yourself, like getting a manicure, pedicure or
massage when you meet mini goals along the way.
Being a new mom is a challenging yet one of the most
rewarding experiences of your life. You can get more out of each and
every day as you take care of your body and lose the excess post
baby weight the right way. When you stick to a post pregnancy weight
loss plan, you will lose the weight and get your pre-baby body back.
I?ve witnessed over a thousand moms get their pre-baby bodies (or
better) back using the Fit Yummy Mummy System so I know you can do
