So, you’ve had a baby and you want to know how to lose the pregnancy weight? First, congrats on the little one! If you’re ready to start losing those pregnancy kilos, you can kick things off with three super simple tips…
First of all, know that losing weight after pregnancy is totally doable. All you need is the right information, inspiration, and support to help you get started. You’ve got this!
Tip 1: Set realistic goals
Go easy on yourself. The first few weeks postpartum are for rest, recovery, and baby-cuddling, not for trying to lose weight. Once you’ve recovered from birth and get settled into your new normal, set some realistic goals. We find that 2-4kg per month is about right, depending on your starting weight and end goal.
Tip 2: Eat good food
Your body has been through a LOT growing a baby and now (most likely) breastfeeding them day and night. Extreme diets or restricted calories aren’t a healthy way for anyone to lose weight, but especially if you’re trying to lose weight after baby. Instead, focus on regular meals full of nutrients to nurture yourself (and your baby). Our healthy weight loss meals will make it easier to stay on track with your postpartum weight loss goals, especially if you meal-prep ahead of time.
