Lose the Baby Weight
Caring for a new baby is all consuming, and losing weight is probably the last thing on your mind right now. Enjoy those first few months to bond with your baby, but don’t neglect yourself—or your weight loss goals—during that time either.
Now is the time
“It’s very critical that you do get the weight off, because if you don’t it has been associated with overweight and obesity 15 to 20 years later in life,” says Debra Krummel, PhD, RD, endowed professor in the University of Cincinnati Department of Nutrition.
Lose pregnancy weight the safe way
If you want to reach a healthy post-pregnancy weight, it’s vital to do so in a healthy manner with the assistance of a medical weight loss doctor. That way you can make gradual progress by following a diet plan that’s monitored by your physician. You not only reach your target weight, you’ll also have plenty of energy stored up to take care of your child.
