Modern women have a more persistent pursuit of “thin”, it seems that only “thin” can be linked with “beauty,” and “fat” can only stand by. Many women become fat when they are pregnant and have children because they exercise less during pregnancy and puerperium and get more supplements, so fat is naturally hoarded. The graceful posture before pregnancy has long disappeared, and the self-confidence and beauty of past days also disappeared with the fatter. But there is a love of beauty everybody, women’s pursuit of beauty will never change, in order to restore the figure, many postpartum moms immediately into the crazy weight loss mode, accidentally into the “eating disorders” in the vortex…
First, understand the “eating disorders”.
What is “eating disorder”? The term “eating disorder” here refers to “mild psychiatric eating disorder”, which is commonly referred to as anorexia and bulimia. Losing weight a lot is a good thing, it can help you reduce cholesterol. However, some people pay too much attention to “obesity” and then lose weight at the cost of health, eating disorders is one of these symptoms. Therefore, the new mommy, who is keen on postpartum weight loss, must realize the danger of excessive weight loss.
Understanding Anorexia: Some patients have no appetite for food, while others seem to eat nothing but fireworks, in order to lose weight and eat little or no food.
Such patients usually have a more persistent pursuit of “thin” and do not stop after reaching their ideal weight as the average person does. Some patients with anorexia will persist in losing weight until their body weight is far below the standard weight. However, excessive diet is very easy to suffer from anorexia.
Understand “gluttony”: gluttony is not only eating too much, gluttony may also be accompanied by emotions. Patients with bulimia often overeat and drink to vent their emotions, sometimes to escape the fact of obesity. They may expel unfinished food by vomiting or improper excretion (taking laxatives) to maintain their weight, or eat it directly into obesity.
So, don’t think people with bulimia don’t want to lose weight, many people just want to lose weight and suffer from bulimia, when eating and drinking, their heart is more likely to appear guilty, aggravate symptoms, continue to rely on eating and venting, vicious circle.
Postpartum excessive pursuit of thin, easy to cause eating disorders.
To find out the cause of eating disorders is nothing more than the concepts of “leanness as beauty” and “bone feeling beauty”, which lead people to excessive pursuit of “leanness”, as if the world belongs only to thin people, and fat people have no foothold. People appreciate the “Victoria’s Secret” supermodels, such as Liu Wen, Lang Xiaowen, He Sui, Xi Mengyao, whose stature is not without envy. And when the heroine on TV shows a fat body, netizens will queue up for Tucao, remember that little dragon girl, known as “Xiaolong Bao”? It seems that obesity is irrational in the world.
And boasting about the success of losing weight has been encouraging people to lose weight crazily. Browse the news, is the postpartum star mother just out of the moon, then thin successful photos; or those “a month of thin 30 pounds, fat women seconds into goddess” experience posts, so that people always want to lose weight quickly.
These ideas and eyes make people pay more attention to body weight, indulge in weight loss, and are more likely to cause eating disorders. And these ideas of losing weight will ferment when they encounter pressure. Depression makes it easier for people to lose weight in eating disorders.
Postpartum fear of body alignment affecting the feelings of husband and wife, fear of becoming “obese” old women, postpartum anxiety and can not face the deformation of the body… It’s a sign of eating disorders that some moms start dieting crazily or feel guilty about not being able to control what they eat. So postpartum new mommy should pay more attention, do not fall into the misunderstanding of overeating.
