I just had a baby and I need to lose the extra weight, help me.

A. It is safer for you to wait at least two months postpartum to purposely lose weight, as your body needs this time to recover from childbirth and establish a good milk supply.

Breastfeeding aids the mother to return to their pre-pregnancy weight; therefore, a lot of breast feeding mothers return to their original pre-pregnancy weight within few months after delivery when following a healthy balanced diet, such as:

  • Manage and control your portion size

  • Follow a balanced and healthy diet

  • Consume low fat foods whenever possible

  • Avoid eating too much desserts and sugars and keep physically active

  • Maintain your physical exercise on an average of 3 times a week (It is highly recommended to consult with your health care professional first).

  • It is important to note that you should drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. Have a glass of water each time you nurse your baby. In addition to water, other good liquids are juice, milk, broths, herb teas and soups.

  • Make sure to increase your fluid intake during high temperatures and exercising.

Last but not least, consult with your physician to rule out any health problems that would contraindicate the diet or exercise. In addition, it is important to consult with your dietitian that can provide you with more individualized advice and practical ideas for healthy weight loss. The dietitian role is important as to set healthy goals, advise you on a customized diet schedule adapted to your needs, monitor your weight loss and make sure all steps undertaken will help you enjoy optimal health.
