Spending nine months to have a baby in life and suddenly being overwhelmed by the demands and hectic routines of freshly adapted motherhood – we know that postnatal months can be overpowering and tiring. While the most crucial question that looms in mind is; how to lose pregnancy weight while not compromising on post-pregnancy nutrition.
At Diet Chemistry, Dt. Gurleen Kaur recommends a simple, practical but effective post pregnancy diet, which can fit-in easily with a hectic routine and yet meet early motherhood demands. Knowing that the requirements of motherhood are huge, she does not recommend postnatal diets which are over complicated and involve lots of food preparation – she focuses on realistic goals. Dt. Gurleen’s edge remains on the importance of long-term healthy eating to keep energy levels and milk supplies for breastfeeding up, and to encourage slow but steady weight loss. She also takes care of the post-natal depressive periods and hence also emphasizes that diet doesn’t have to be strict military regime – treats are allowed!
