The Easy Way to Lose Your Baby Weight with Losebabyweight.com.au
Meet Rhian and Mum just like you and me,
But the difference is Rhian knows how to Lose Baby Weight and Breastfeed with Success.
She has helped mums lose a collective 500,000 kgs now to date with a easy program that covers everything, shakes, snacks, desert, meals and fitness.
Nothing crazy, everything tangible and fun.
Find out what everyone is talking about.
Here are Rhian's my top tips for losing weight.
If you are a new mum then breastfeeding can help some mums to lose weight. It burns more calories and can help your tummy size reduce. But be warned, for every mum who has found that breastfeeding has helped weight loss there is another mum who saw themselves gain weight due to increased appetite
Do not get sucked in by fad diets that promise to see you lose 5kg a week. These fad diets are unhealthy, cut out vital food groups that you need for energy and see you lose fluid and muscle which is why the weight comes back on very soon after losing it. You can see here about why fad diets are so bad for usand why you should eat healthily instead
Don’t put pressure on yourself. Being a mum is hard work – emotionally and physically and if you have put pressure on yourself to lose a lot of weight in a short space of time and you don’t lose what you want each week, it can really get you down and make you feel depressed. Instead, only think about losing weight when you feel physically and emotionally ready and strong and then aim for a healthy 500g – 1kg a week.
See it is as a long term change to a healthy lifestyle. And even though you may want to lose a big chunk of weight in a few weeks, this is not sustainable and it will be hard to be on a restrictive diet when you have so much going on in your life and need energy. Instead, see it as a long term goal. And if you lose 500g a week over, 20 weeks that is 10kg – which is a big number and by doing it in a sensible and healthy way you won’t find it hard to lose either
Aim for easy and gentle exercise – such as a daily walk
Try our Exercise DVD – it is broken down into 10 and 15 minute workouts and is safe for post baby mums to do too and you will burn approximately 450 – 550 calories an hour and you can preview it here
Make our protein cookies and snacks so you have your own home made protein bars – without all the gunky ingredients found in most protein bars. You can see lots of yummy protein cookies and bar recipes here- which many mums have found have helped milk supply too
Always have pre prepared and healthy and protein based snacks in the fridge so you have metabolism boosting and healthy snacks to eat so you don’t end up eating wrong foods. You can see some of our favourite snacks here
Cut out processed food and things like white bread,rice and pasta and have wholegrain and wholemeal versions instead which are high in fibre and vitamins
Increase your fibre and lean protein – both key in keeping you full and fibre aids digestion and protein helps to build lean muscle
And just remember, there is no right time to lose weight – it is when you feel ready, and for some mums this can be a few weeks/months post baby and for others it is years. The most important thing is to do it in a healthy and sensible way.
