Some people might find it easy to loose weight after pregnancy while others might not find it to be the easiest thing. This may affect their overall self esteem and cause them to loose confidence.

If unfortunately you were overweight before pregnancy or you gained more than the recommended weight during pregnancy, then it would take much longer for you to shed off the extra weight. It is understandable that every mother wants to look like they used to before they gained the pregnancy weight. Therefore, it is important to loose the weight in a healthy manner.
The following are some of the tips that mothers who are battling with post pregnancy weight can use to get rid of the extra weight:
The first thing that they should do is avoid going on diets. Contrary to popular belief, going on a diet will not help you to loose weight. The best approach is to eat healthier foods that are rich in nutrients. Eat foods that are not processed or contain artificial additives or flavors. Ensure that you take the normal 1800 calories per day especially if you are breast feeding.
Even though it is still under debate, breast feeding is believed to reduce the extra weight. Studies conducted show that mothers who breast feed have a higher chance of loosing weight after pregnancy than those who do not. In addition, breastfeeding is important to the baby because it gives it the necessary nutrients and boosts its immunity.
