Question: How to reduce increased weight after cesarean delivery? And increase tummy too? Suggest diet n exercises??
Answer: Hi mommy, one of the biggest challenges is to reduce tummy after delivery and we all faced it Here are some ways in which you can reduce tummy naturally before starting any strenuous exercises:
Eat healthy: Make sure your diet is rich in carbs and low in fat. More energy is needed for lactating mothers. High carb diet along with sufficient vitamins and minerals is very important. At the same time, avoid food with saturated fats and sweets. Stay away from ghee, butter, fried foods and also from sugary beverages and aerated drinks. Include more fruits, vegetables, and protein in your diet
Drink plenty of water: Drinking water will not only help to maintain fluid balance but also helps to burn off any excess fat from your body post a cesarean delivery. So go ahead and up your water game
Breastfeeding: Breastfeeding is one of the easiest ways to lose those extra kilos that you piled up during pregnancy. You will have to breastfeed your baby exclusively for the first six months after a C-section. This will help to reduce the belly fat
Move your body: A C-section causes a lot of stress on the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. This is because a C-section can cut through some of the stomach muscles resulting in a pouch-like stomach after delivery. It is recommended that you take at least 6-8 weeks after a C-section before starting to move aggressively or exercise. Walking is a low impact exercise that burns calories and helps to increase your metabolism. One of the easiest methods to start getting in shape after delivery is by going for a walk. Walking will not push you to the extremes. Going for a brisk walk at least 3 times a week can do wonders in regaining the belly shape
Massage: The post pregnancy massages have great advantages. And there is no harm in getting a massage after a C-section as well. The only thing is that you have to wait for 2 weeks before you get a massage. This is a period during which any complication associated with surgery surfaces. Once that period is over you can indulge in massages without any problem. Still, you have to keep a couple of points in your mind. During the initial days avoid the abdominal area and concentrate more on back, legs, and hand. Normally 4 weeks after surgery, your body will heal and scar tissues will start to form. You will now be able to lie on your tummy without any pain. From this stage onwards, you can concentrate the massage on your abdominal area. Massage in the abdominal area helps to break up the belly fat. The massage also helps to lose the fluids in lymph nodes, thereby reducing your waist
Tummy Binder: An age-old process of tucking in the tummy is the tummy binder. In this, the post C-section tummy is tied up with a muslin cloth like a bandage. This pushes the stomach in. But you can do this only 2 months after a C-section when your incision has properly healed
