It is obvious that more or less, new mothers have to do what others do when it comes to weight loss. The problem is that their bodies are still traumatized from baby delivery so nothing strenuous must be used, because this would only create a counter effect and harm the body some more. In the beginning, nothing more than walking is required. This will burn some calories and shape the body a bit, but it will not be dangerous for the organism. Obviously, with improving the physical condition, more intensive exercises may be applied and this will consume more and more energy with burning more and more calories.
When it comes to dieting, things are a bit different here, which means that restrictive diets should be avoided as much as possible, because they will exert the body, or might even put it in a starvation mode. If this happens, the body will try to preserve the fat tissue while reducing the muscle mass. Baby weight should be reduced with healthy eating, meaning that only fruits, veggies, whole grains, low fat dairy products, fish, poultry and similar food must be used. This is also important if a mother is breastfeeding. Mother's milk must contain everything needed so that the baby grows properly. Also, the baby's immune system is strengthening only with the help of that milk so it is important for it to be full of the needed nutrients.
Obviously, tempo of the weight reduction must be slow, moderate at best. Intensifying the exercises may be applied only when it is considered to be safe for the mother and baby. Safety of a child will have to be in the first place, always. But, in spite of all obligations, the mother should think of the health status and reduce the extra fat tissue as soon as possible.
