How Can I Loose Baby Weight

How Can I Lose Baby Weight

People may assume that the 21st century woman is without problems when it come to solving weight loss issues. Contrary to that, most mums don’t have time on their side because we are living in a technological world where being busy is the code we live by. Most women go with the fad diets just because they fit so well in this convenience-driven society. These diets are full of empty promises and do not live up to the expectation of most women. These are fairy tales that have a ‘happily never after’ ending.

The simplest way to lose weight is to have a healthy diet, but in the kind of society that we live in no one really has time to do that. The main problem is that before most women make a decision, they will have already added more weight. There are different diet plans that can be followed but not all of them have the results that you would term as good. Let us look at a few of these and their effectiveness.

The Starvation Diet

People go wrong on this diet because what they do not realize is that it is not food that is making you add weight, it is your eating habits that are contributing to that. Our bodies need the energy that is obtained from food to carry its normal functions and without this, you will feel weak and your body will be under a lot of strain.

It is very important to note that the body, when you are in a starvation diet, will not burn the baby fat quickly, instead it will slow the burning process. When you resume normal eating regime, the body will still be focused on saving energy and you will gain extra weight faster than you lost it.

Celebrity Diets

These diets are like eating fat to reduce fat. There is a “secret” diet that is said to work effectively but the problem is that once you have stopped the diet you will be back to the weight you were trying so hard to lose plus a few more pounds.

Working so hard to be thin instead of healthy is something common in Hollywood, but this will not apply to the real world where women are struggling to permanently lose weight. Celebrity diets are only quick-fix solutions because you cannot rely on the magic ingredient all your life.

Natural Diets

The diets above are so tempting but their results are not long term. Most of them are more inclined on the commercial aspect of it. The companies making the diet pills gain massive profits while women spend sleepless night trying to figure out why the pills are not working as the adverts say. Losing weight has nothing to do with magic pills, starvation or fancy diets, it has everything to do with naturally losing weight. You do not have to deny your body the food it deserves, all you have to do is reduce the calories in your intake complemented by regular exercise and your baby fat will be gone sooner than you think.

      Surly the stress of looking after a baby makes you 'lose' baby fat! No. seriously, I just got on with my busy life, ate small portions regularly and it went.
