Don’t Start Dieting Too Soon
Not only is it important to relax after having a baby, giving you time to bond with your new baby, it is also essential that you give your body time to recover from the labour. It is best to wait until after your six week postpartum check-up before reducing your calorie intake with a new diet. For those breastfeeding, experts recommend that you should actually wait until the baby is at least two months old before beginning a low calorie diet plan.

The amount of weight that you gain during a pregnancy can vary from mother to mother, however if you find that you have gained more weight than you are comfortable with, keep in mind that the most effective way to lose the weight (and keep it off) is with a long-term diet.

Make sure that you pick a diet which best suits your weight loss needs as well as your lifestyle.
