5 New-Age Diet Tips for Post-Pregnancy Weight Loss
Post-natal weight is the most toughest and stubborn monster to deal with and demolish. The happiness is accompanied with a flab, stress, and a great deal of weakness that only a woman can understand. With ideas pouring in on how to lose weight, gym tips, and Yoga, you must understand dietary guidelines as well. The experts say that your weight loss or body toning goals are achievable if and only if your diet is 80% perfect and with workout plans 20% in. This clearly indicates that you can sabotage all that ‘pasta pouches’ hanging around your mid by following a workout plan that goes hand-in-hand with a correct meal plan. Here are 5 tips on how you can correct your diet to get back the body you have had in past or you have always dreamt about:
Ditch the Diet Concept
Seeking for perfection often leads us to a path of ignorance and slip-ups. When you diet strictly and somehow fail to achieve the results, the sorrow pushes you to go harder on the aspect. This way, you tighten the ropes and become even more stringent over what you eat. This not only stresses your mind but also rob you off the foods that could be delicious and healthy. Therefore, one of the best advices could be to avoid any diet programs and simply go easy on fattening stuff. The idea is to eat a wholesome meal that contains carbohydrates, proteins, alkaline foods like leafy greens, and fats (good fats like Omega-3s). Omega-3s are available in flaxseeds, walnuts, chia seeds and in fis (if you eat meat). You can consider eating Ghee made with raw cow’s milk because raw dairy is much more effective than pasteurized ones.
Gorgeous Green Juices
Trend of the 21st century, Green Juice is a new and improved way to include greenery in your life. This could be difficult at first because not many of us approve of the bitter green leafy taste but gradually it will grow on you. You can blend a head of spinach, a stalk of celery or cucumber, some carrots, and an apple together for an elixir that would give you a youthful appearance and a great body. Low in calories, this high-dose chlorophyll rich drink will fill you up and allow you to eat less at the same time. Another great thing about consuming green juices is that it cleanses fatty liver and relieves the symptoms of leaky gut. This clearly means that your body would absorb nutrients better and digestion would be optimal. Hence, as a result, you would be able to perform better at gym or whichever workout you have opted for.

The Wasteful ‘Whites’
This does not intent to prove by any means that white foodstuffs like breads and rice are monstrous. However, when it comes to weight loss, white stuff, such as white rice, pasta, bread, and refined flour items wreak havoc on your digestion and promote fat gain. For instance, white rice is devoid of the fibrous shell, polished, and is low in terms of nutrients, which makes it a feeble contender to its counterpart, the brown rice. Further, the white bread is prepared using the nasty refined flour and is loaded with sugar and margarine. If you are on a mission to lose weight then the first step towards the goal is to choose the right foods so that you can enjoy the goodness of life. Next time you are at the grocery store, pick up or choose to look at following stuff:
- Whole wheat bread
- Sprouted grain bread (a new healthier alternative)
- Whole grain pasta
- Brown rice
- Quinoa (can replace Dalia, rice in Khichri or rice based items)
- Buckwheat products (Kuttu)
The mentioned food items are high on fibre, vitamins and right amount of carbohydrates.
This is quite a debatable topic because many noses start to twitch at the mere name of it. Fat burners can be an effective and less bumpy path to achieving weight loss goals. The supplement is enriched with some of the finest ingredients (depends upon the brand you choose) and aims to attack the flab in no time. If you have food sensitivities or chronic digestive concerns, then fat burners that lack gluten or soy can be the best pick and it is amazing that companies sell these at good prices. Some of the main ingredients in a fat burner are caffeine, green coffee bean extracts that are known to enhance mental strength and workout performance. Lastly, you have a choice here, as the supplement is available in both gel capsule and powder form
People’s advice matters nothing when it comes to your health for every anatomy is different. Coconut oil suits one but it is not necessary that it would suit you as well and this is why a good homework is required before you buy a bottle of oil. The grocery aisle at the supermarket is flooded with a variety of cooking oil choices with each bespeaking its own set of benefits but as already said not everything would suit you. Canola oil, for instance, is regarded as one of the healthier alternatives but science has some proved devastating effects on the human body. Traditional India swears by mustard oil and its efficacy on the overall human being but then other part of the world ranks it quite low. Now, the question is which is best. The thumb rule should be to choose oil whose origination is known and clear. Therefore, go for mustard oil, sunflower seed oil and if you are looking for oils with deeper positive effect then go for flaxseed oil and olive oil. Another aspect you must take note of is to choose brands that sell high-quality organically extracted oils.
Post-pregnancy weight is tough nut to crack but is definitely possible to overcome. With exercise and simple diet tips like above, you can achieve the goals in no time.
