4 Tips to Shred the Baby Fat


4 Tips to Shred the Baby Fat

It takes a combination of healthy eating, exercise and behavioral change to lose weight effectively. Here are four foolproof strategies to shed the baby fat.

1. Siesta as often as you can

Research shows sleep loss negatively impacts the hormones that regulate how hungry you feel and how efficiently you burn calories. We know it’s hard to sneak in sleep when you’re a new mom, but if you nap when the baby does, you’ll be able to grab a few extra hours of rest.

Eat on smaller plates

A 2006 study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicinefound that people serve themselves more food when using larger spoons and plates, while downsizing the dish size had the opposite effect. For weight loss, portion control is a must. Using smaller plates is a simple tool for controlling how much you eat without having to measure anything.

. Fill up on veggies

Vegetables have fewer calories per serving than practically any other food. Plus, their high fiber content promotes a feeling of fullness, making it easier for you to limit your calorie intake.

. Make an exercise date

The best way to be sure to exercise is to make a date with another new mom. Go for a walk with your babies; meet at a yoga class; hike at a local park. Make a fitness appointment with a pal and you’re a lot less likely to make excuses.
