Answer: These healthy eating tips will help you lose weight safely.
DO NOT skip meals. With a new baby, many new moms forget to eat. If you do not eat, you will have less energy, and it will not help you lose weight.
Eat 5 to 6 small meals a day with healthy snacks in between (rather than 3 larger meals).
Eat breakfast. Even if you do not normally eat in the mornings, get into the habit of having breakfast. It will give you energy to start your day and stop you from feeling tired later.
Slow down. When you take your time eating, you will notice that it is easier to tell that you are full. It is tempting to multitask, but if you focus on your meal you will be less likely to overeat.
Choose nonfat or low-fat dairy products.
When you reach for a snack try to include foods with fiber and protein to help keep you full (such as raw bell pepper or carrot with bean dip, apple slices with peanut butter, or a slice of whole-wheat toast with hard-boiled egg). Drink at least 12 cups of fluid a day.
Keep a water bottle near the spot where you usually feed the baby, that way you'll remember to drink when they do.
Limit drinks like sodas, juices, and other fluids with added sugar and calories. They can add up and keep you from losing weight.
Choose broiled or baked rather than fried foods.
Limit sweets, sugar, saturated fat and trans fats.
Drink only warm water.
Do exercise daily.
Walk after food.
