Tips to lose baby weight fast

You may ask, how fast is fast? The amount of fat that you burn depends on the intensity and duration of the physical activity you complete and the diet that you follow.

It is even advisable to avoid dieting or doing an intense workout for up to two months to allow your body to heal and recover.

Do simple exercises

The extra weight of your baby can make you lose more weight too. In addition to this, you can also walk in variation. For example, walking up hills or in a zigzag pattern.

Continue Breast Feeding

When you are breastfeeding the baby, your body will require more calories. On average, you need around 330 calories per day in order to have the energy to produce enough milk for the new born.

You should note that crash diets are not recommended during this time. Limiting your food intake or following the popular juice diets may compromise your health and your baby’s health.
