It seems very hard to flatten your tummy after having a baby. Here is some advice on how to have a flat stomach again. The most important things in losing belly are exercise and healthy nutrition. There will be no result if we exercise and eat unhealthy food at the same time. Good diet and workout will give the best result.

First, you have to know that your stomach muscles are softened after pregnancy and that they are not that strong, so you will need to tone up those muscles. The best exercises for that are abdominal crunches, kegel exercises and oblique exercises. Abdominal crunches are very effective in loosing stomach fat, but it is important that you learn the proper way to perform ab crunches in order to make your workout more effective. You should lie down on the floor and bend your knees, placing your hands behind your head or across your chest. Exhale when you come up and then slowly inhale when you lower yourself back to the starting position. These exercises are done in 2 to 3 sets. Each set consists of 20 to 25 repetitions.

Kegel exercises can help you strengthen some of the muscles that control the flow of urine (pelvic muscles). You can do this exercise easy at any place and without anyone knowing. Some people have trouble finding and isolating the right muscle. You should learn how to tighten the correct muscle. In order to find these muscles notice what muscles you are using to stop the flow of urine while you are on the toilet. Those are your pelvic muscles and they should be contracted.

The right way to do kegel exercise is to contract these muscles and hold them tight for 10 seconds. Then relax the muscles completely for 10 seconds. Do 10 exercises 3-4 times per day. Kegel exercises are very useful and easy to do. You can perform these exercises at any place. You should be persistent in performing these exercises because the effects of this workout are not visible right away.

Exercises for oblique muscles or love handles are very much like crunches. Oblique muscles are large muscles on the side of your waist. Like when doing crunches you should lie on your back and bend your knees with hands behind your head. Slowly raise your upper body and try to curl in a diagonal manner towards your right side bringing your left elbow to your right knee. Then lower yourself back to the starting position. Then switch elbow to the right knee. This kind of exercise should be done in 2 or 3 sets. Each set should consist of 20-25 repetitions.
