Congratulations on the birth of your new baby. Now, you are probably wondering how you are going to lose the extra fat accumulated from nine months of eating for two. Eating for baby has just shifted gears to eating for baby weight loss.
This doesn't have to be a difficult task. Most mothers have been conscientious of their diets out of consideration for their child. You may want to indulge in a few things that you have had to deprive yourself of during pregnancy, and that's fine. But, when you are ready to tackle the baby weight loss, a little discipline can go a long way.
Your eating habits are what placed you where you are today. If you start your morning with a fast food sandwich, break for lunch at Mario's Tacos, and order something for dinner out of convenience you have your work cut out for you. Baby weight loss is probably not a priority for you. I suggest you Google "low cost health insurance."
On the other hand, if you are like a great deal of others who are concerned with what goes into their bodies, eating correctly to burn fat while feeding your body may just be a few tweaks to you eating habits. Baby weight loss will come much easier for these individuals, and here are three great additions to your daily habits that will help you burn fat.
Dump Processed Foods
Process foods are poison. You must train yourself to cut them out altogether. You will notice a huge difference in how you look and feel. You will not only be avoiding spikes to your blood sugar, but avoiding chemicals that wreak havoc by affecting your appetite and your cells. If you are dying for a piece of cake or a cookie, have a cheat day and keep it within reason. Sunday is pizza day for me.
Eat Small and Often
You've heard this before, but I bet you haven't practiced this for any substantial length of time. It's not as time consuming as you think and the rewards are huge. This is a very effective way to up you metabolism and start burning the body's fat storage for energy. You won't burn fat if you are eating one or two large meals each day. Train yourself to eat small and regularly and baby weight loss will be a done deal. Just do it.
Eat Your Carbs in The Mornings and Afternoons Only
If you are serious about your baby weight loss and burning the stored fat, you won't eat carbohydrate rich foods after 3 or 4 in the afternoon. This is very effective if you stick to it.
That being said, you're not just going to be slashing calories alone, but burning them as well. You've got to exercise! Besides the many benefits of exercising, the calories you burn will provide more leeway in your eating. Correct eating is not starving ourselves, that's a sure way to gain weight. You aim for a reasonable amount of calories from whole foods, and fine tune with exercise.
The difficulty in achieving your baby weight loss goals lies in your commitment to integrate some basic habits into your daily routine. Keep that in mind. It's really not that difficult once you have had enough of doing things the old way.
