Summer has arrived, and weight loss is progressing rapidly, but why is the effect not good? Is the method wrong or not? The new mother looked at the weight on her body, anxious but helpless. New mothers know that postpartum weight loss should not be blind, and it is not something to lose at any time. Seizing the best opportunity for postpartum weight loss can save effort and not delay physical recovery.
The Best Time for Postpartum Weight Loss
1. Not losing weight: postpartum and postpartum period
After giving birth, women are in their weakest state and need to fully recover. At the same time, frequent breastfeeding and hard parenting during the postpartum period require a lot of energy consumption. Therefore, do not attempt to lose weight and restore body shape in any form during the postpartum period, as it will seriously harm the body. However, it is also important to note that during the postpartum period, one should not consume too many high fat and high sugar high-calorie supplements, which can also add to the burden of weight loss in the future.
2. Start discretionary weight loss: 6 weeks postpartum
Don’t start losing weight immediately after giving birth, as a month of rest won’t fully restore your body to its pre natal condition, so you still need to continue to recover your physical strength. After about 6 weeks postpartum, weight loss plans can only be considered according to one’s own situation. Under the premise of complete recovery of the body and no need for breastfeeding, weight can be reduced through appropriate exercise and dietary control at this stage. However, the best way to lose weight after childbirth is actually breastfeeding. Breastfeeding consumes a certain amount of calories, which can be said to be the healthiest and beneficial way for mothers and children to lose weight.
3. Moderate weight loss: 2 months postpartum
After giving birth for 2 months and the body recovers, even breastfeeding can gradually reduce weight. It is recommended to increase exercise and reduce food intake to improve dietary structure. However, women who breastfeed should pay attention to ensuring a certain amount of nutrition intake, as long as they do not consume high calorie foods.
4. Great weight loss effort: 4 months postpartum
Women who do not need breastfeeding can lose weight just like before childbirth after 4 months. However, for mothers who still breastfeed, the only control method suitable for breastfeeding after 2 months is to moderately reduce food intake and increase exercise.
5. The critical period for weight loss: six months postpartum
6 months postpartum is the golden period for weight control. If the weight can be restored to before pregnancy within 6 months postpartum, the average weight gain will be 2.4 kilograms after 8 to 10 years; If postpartum weight cannot be reduced, the average weight will increase by 8.3 kilograms after 8 to 10 years. From this, it can be seen that 6 months postpartum is not only a golden period for weight control, but also affects the quality of life of postpartum women in the future.
