Pregnancy is a beautiful thing – and while you’re pregnant, you might be glowing. But after delivery is another story, magically losing that weight is no easy feat. Normal people and celebrities both struggle with snapping back to their pre-baby bods. Don’t expect anything drastic to happen in a month, but slow and steady wins the race. Here’s how to get your body back to looking and feeling its best.

1. Diet

Maintaining a healthy post baby diet is important – to recover from the past intense 9 months you need to fill your body up with nutrients and definitely not deprive it of anything. Instead of fad diets, fill up on protein like fish, eggs and skinless chicken along with dark greens and raw veggies that fill you up. And always eat breakfast!

2. Breastfeeding burns calories

This sounds totally strange, but it’s a thing! Moms who breastfeed burn about 500 more calories a day than those who don’t. However, breastfeeding can also make you work up an intense appetite. So just fill up on low calorie foods like salads and veggies with hummus. When you’re hungry, drink water first, and keep junk food out of the pantry.

3. Beat your plateau with unconventional workouts

Getting yourself back in the gym after giving birth can feel intimidating and gruelling. It might be more motivational if you can integrate workouts into your daily mommy activities without feeling like you need to make time for a gym sesh. Try running with a stroller, or doing weighted squats with a baby carrier. It’s way harder than it sounds.

4. Turn healthy things into dessert with a freezer

Ice cream cravings are real, and very hard to ignore. So while doing that, keep individual yogurts in the freezer for a nutritious but delicious DI frozen yogurt treat. You can place a Popsicle stick in the middle of the lid and eat it upside down like an ice cream cone. You can even place real junk food in there, since the cold temperature will make it something to eat.
