MUMBAI, November 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Childbirth is a miracle in itself. One can't help but marvel at the precious little one and all the changes that a woman's body goes through over 9 months to bring them here. As it is with most change, the period after the baby is born can be a trying one. The body is recovering from the stress of labour and preparing itself for the months of nursing to come. During this time many women encounter problems such as postpartum depression, uterine or bladder infections, excessive vaginal bleeding, discomfort during sex, sore nipples, swollen or saggy boobs and difficulty getting back into shape.
How to lose weight after delivery
The kilos that one puts on during pregnancy can be extremely stubborn to get rid of. Women often struggle with accumulation of fat around the waist, hips and upper arms, and engorgement of breasts, followed by sagging. Women often come seeking help to lose weight after pregnancy. Dr Puneet Nayak has compiled a few tips to tackle this issue.
1. Don't Crash diet
While one might feel an urgency to drop the baby weight and get back to pre-pregnancy shape, dieting is not always the best idea especially immediately after childbirth. One needs to ensure that the body has the required nutrition to maintain itself, especially while still breastfeeding. Focus on getting a balanced diet and instead of cutting out snacking altogether, stock up on healthy snacks such as apples and wheat crackers instead. Eat when hungry and give the body time for the natural process of weight loss after pregnancy.
It is widely accepted that breastfeeding helps with post natal weight loss. Try and stick exclusively to breastfeeding for as long as possible. Besides being good for the mother, it also helps in the baby's mental and physical development.
3. Stay hydrated
Getting enough of water is more important now than ever to keep the mother healthy and body to run smoothly. It can also help one stay full and thereby helping cut down on unhealthy cravings.
4. Get active
Slowly incorporate exercise into the daily routing. At first, aim for 150 minutes of physical activity per week. Keep the exercises non-strenuous. Even a brisk walk with the baby is enough to get the blood pumping and keep the muscles and bones strong. Not to mention, this makes for great bonding time with the baby and can also help with depression, stress and sleep issues.
Getting a good night's sleep might seem impossible right now with one's baby waking up at odd hours. However, one needs to be well-rested to care properly for the baby. Being permanently exhausted will lead to stress, which will in turn lead to weight gain. It also means that one will tend to neglect its own needs. Take as many naps during the day as possible and try and get to bed early to stay healthy, happy, and on toes.
6. Try a Weight Loss Treatment
If one isn't seeing progress after a few months, consider taking up a course of Non Surgical Slimming Program. There are a lot of weight loss treatments that one could try. Many women opt for surgical breast lifts and tummy tuck after pregnancy and breastfeeding to tighten sagging breasts and lose that tummy fat which is risky.
However, at Prettislim, their U-Lipo treatment allows one to get a breast lift and tummy tuck without surgery - a safe and painless alternative to traditional treatments. In addition to their non-surgical breast lift and tummy tuck, they have a range of U-Lipo treatments for targeted fat reduction that are safe for new mothers. Major areas of fat deposits post pregnancy includes lower abdomen, buttocks and thighs, which can be targeted through Non Surgical Lipolysis treatment. Step into one of their slimming centres at Bandra, Andheri, or Kandivali, and get qualified doctors and dieticians to guide through their procedures.
Prettislim has three clinics across Mumbai, and they function with the aim to reduce obesity and to encourage Mumbaikars to live a healthy life. The clinics are run by qualified MBBS and MD doctors, along with dieticians, physiotherapists, and allied health professionals. Although they have already become the foremost slimming clinic in the city, Prettislim is committed to continuing their R&D to find the best possible treatments for body shaping, figure correction, and obesity and its related conditions. They have an in-house R&D department, where doctors, physiotherapists, dieticians and counsellors all work together on technological advances.
Apart from their U-Lipo[TM] treatments, the clinic also offers their clients constant support over the phone. Clients have access to a slimming coach, who motivates them to continue their diet and exercise regime, even on days when they do not have to come to the clinic. Every customer is also provided with 'Slimming Secrets - The Little Book of Slimming'. This hugely popular book has some simple tips and tricks for healthier living. It also shares some of Prettislim's motivating success stories, and explains the concepts of dietary, hormonal, and behavioural slimming tools and treatments. This continuous support is what motivates clients to continue with their fitness goals at Prettislim, and what keeps them coming back.
