After-pregnancy diet

Are you ladies going on a diet after you deliver? I am I was 130 pre-pregnancy now I'm 169 omg. Everyone says I'll lose it because I'm just belly but still I'm only 5'2. I was going to go on the smoothie diet and eat just grilled, baked, or boiled meat, plus lots of vegetables. Also I'm getting a belly band.

I'll be breastfeeding so I won't be dieting I'll be working out since the place I will be living has a gym. I weighed 125 pre pregnancy when I found out I was pregnant with my first and gave birth at 140 and shortly after my girl turned 3 months I found out I was pregnant. Weighing 135. I'm 36 weeks 6 days and I weigh 163. Lol I will get my old body back.

No problem you're fine a belly band you basically take it and wrap it around your stomach it helps to shrink your stomach and uterus back down after the baby, honestly with eating right just try lots of fruits and vegetables I don't eat fried meat only baked or grilled, and lots of water but we all have those evil cravings lol

Nine months on, nine months off. Not really a good idea to diet straight after birth.

Yeah research the keto diet, also it boosts it up with taking fat burners as well as on the diet. Even better if you work out too. I was training to be a fitness model before I got pregnant so I know a ton about health. My husband is a bodybuilder as well so i'm pretty educated on it.

Not a good idea to diet if you're planning to breastfeed because baby still needs extra nutrients. I'm overweight to begin with and gained close to sixty pounds pregnant with my daughter. I breastfed for over a year, and got down to my pre-pregnancy weight (without dieting or excessive exercise) by her first birthday.

I got on a diet. I was all belly and lost all of it in a week, but I still have the little baby fat that i'm trynna get off of me, been in the gym too. A good diet to burn fat is called the keto diet. Very strict, and not easy but really works.
