Lose Baby Belly Fat In 30 Days
Having a baby is an amazing experience but nine times
out of ten, after finding out the baby's sex and weight, people
will ask you "so how long do you think it will take you to lose
your baby weight?" All women gain weight during their pregnancies
but losing that weight can be a challenge.
Along with losing weight, many women are concerned about the belly
fat that they've gained as their stomachs have stretched to accommodate
their unborn children. So how do you lose that baby belly fat? Here
is a plan to help you lose the belly fat in thirty days.
Note: Before you begin your exercise program it is important to
check with your doctor to make sure that you are healthy enough
to increase the intensity of your daily activities. Your body is
very fragile after having a baby and your number one priority should
be healing and taking care of yourself so that you and take care
of your body. Your doctor will know which exercises are all right
for your condition.
Do ten elevator exercises each day. Sit in a chair with one hand
over your navel and one hand under you. Inhale deeply into your
abdomen, expanding your mid-section fully. Then exhale through your
nose very slowly while pulling your belly button in toward your
backbone. Do five small squeezes (pulling your belly button back
toward your spine). Repeat. You must talk to your doctor before
doing this exercise. If your body isn't ready for it, you could
do yourself far more harm than good.
Another exercise, similar to the elevator exercise is called, simply,
contraction. Sit in the same chair, with one hand above your belly
button and one hand below your belly button. Breathe in to expand
your stomach and then bring it back to the halfway point. Exhale
while pulling your belly button in and then squeeze your belly and
hold that position for a second. Release and expand your belly back
to its halfway point. Do 100 of these each day and you'll see your
baby belly fat reduced in no time!
You also want to make sure to eat as healthy a diet as you possibly
can. If you are breastfeeding, you will be burning plenty of calories,
so you don't have to worry about counting anything, but make sure
that the calories you do take in are from healthy foods.
You need to make sure to eat a balanced diet--preferably one that
you work out with your doctor and is beneficial to both you and
your baby. Remember, when you breastfeed, whatever you eat, your
Obviously, right after giving birth, any exercise you do needs
to be low impact. Your body is still fragile so you don't want to
do anything that will endanger your health! Make sure that you talk
to your doctor about any exercise plan you are thinking of starting
up. Together the two of you will decide on an exercise plan that
will help you lose your baby weight and lose your baby belly fat
without putting too much strain on you and your body.
