Question: how to reduce belly fat after c section??? kindly suggest..
Answer: U can start exercise and yoga after six months . That also after taking doctor advise. Below steps u can use to loose weight Breastfeeding No need to wait to start breastfeeding. As soon as your precious bundle of joy is born, you can start breastfeeding. Believe it or not, breastfeeding can actually help flatten your belly. Not only does breastfeeding burn about 500 extra calories per day according to Women’s Health, but it also releases a hormone called oxytocin that stimulates uterine contractions, speeding up your uterus’s return journey to its pelvic home. So how does breastfeeding burn so many calories? Well, the American Pregnancy Association says a breastfeeding mom will secrete 425 and 700 calories into breast milk per day. Because the body does not generally produce this highly specialized milk that includes tons of nutrition for baby, it has to work super hard to do it. To burn roughly the same number of calories through exercise, a 140-pound woman would have to run a 10-minute mile pace for 45 to 60 minutes every day. 2. Use a Postpartum Support Belt Generally, within 12 hours of surgery, doctors encourage new moms to get up and move around. Some women find that not having any pressure on the site of the incision is uncomfortable. Others find their abs feel loose and unsupported. To combat this discomfort, some OBs actually recommend wearing a postpartum support belt or girdle. The jury is out in the medical community. While some OBs swear they help with postpartum discomfort and to compress the uterus, thereby helping it shrink, others think these waist trainers are nothing more than a gimmick. Whether or not it helps shrink your waistline, doctors have been recommending similar belts for a long time to people with back pain due to weakened abdominal muscles. (3) Since your muscles have recently undergone trauma, it’s worthwhile to give yourself the extra support. In the process, you may even help your uterus shrink and find it’s normal spot, speeding up the process of reducing your tummy. 3. Eat Right While dieting isn’t recommended during the initial postpartum recovery period, it is always a good idea for your health and for your belly to eat a healthy diet. Fill your plate up with nutritious fare and avoid empty calories. Snack sensibly and don’t pick junk when you could have a handful of nuts, veggies with hummus or some whole milk dairy to get a healthy bite between meals. Don’t drastically cut your calories, especially if you are breastfeeding. Remember your body needs an extra 300 to 500 calories per day to sustain your milk supply. To calculate your new caloric needs, check out this calculator for nursing moms. For a sensible diet plan, check out the 1700 calorie diet, but remember your body may need a few extra calories. When you hit the grocery store, remember to stock up on healthy, nutritious snacks rather than fatty and sugary items. Go for baby carrots, apples, almonds, hummus and whole grain crackers. That way, when the hunger bug bites you, you’ll have healthy options to choose from rather than temptations that will make your struggle to reduce the tummy even harder. 4. Get Some Exercise Though you won’t be cleared for heavier exercise until 8 weeks after your c section, you can start by doing some light walking each day as soon as you feel up to it. Don’t push yourself too hard, especially in the beginning. After the initial recovery period, you can begin to do some other exercises. Even after you’ve been given the all clear, brisk walking is still an excellent choice for exercise. Burn through that lingering belly fat by going on at least 3 brisk walks per week. Art Weltman, PhD, director of exercise physiology at the University of Virginia tells Health, “Fast-paced walking, when combined with healthy eating, is hugely effective for weight loss.” New moms can take advantage of extra calorie burn. Baby wearing while briskly walking or pushing your little bundle of joy in a stroller will up the resistance and burn more calories.
