Consult a nutritionist post pregnancy?

You've lost the big belly since the arrival of the baby, but you still have some bulges that make resistance? If the curves of the pregnant woman are beautiful, those of the mother post-birth meet less success in front of your mirror.

What is the ideal weight gain during pregnancy?

It all depends on her weight before. The more overweight problems you have before pregnancy, the more you will have to be careful during, because weight gain may be more critical. On average, it would take one kilogram per month the first six months and then two kilos the last three months. It amounts to an average of 12 pounds during pregnancy. Beyond that, you may have more trouble losing your weight quickly.

If a woman is overweight before pregnancy, what attitude should she have?

There is this famous belief that a pregnant woman must eat for two during pregnancy and that she must not go on a diet. It's wrong! Pregnant women who want (and need for some) to control their weight through a low-calorie diet can do so without danger to the fetus.

Is the diet the only way to lose weight?

It all depends on the number of pounds to lose. A mother who is cluttered with five small unsightly pounds must focus on a qualitative food recalibration (choose the right foods and get rid of some bad habits). If she has more than six kilos, then the dietitian in Delhi plans a quantitative restriction. It should not be too significant, nor too sudden at the risk of altering the body and blocking it in weight loss.

What are the mistakes that young mothers make most often in their eating habits?

Two traps are quite common. First the ease of cooked dishes, for lack of time and availability. These are saturated dishes with fat and salt and therefore eliminate categorically from the diet when you have to lose weight. Another trap: the young mother, worried about her stress, overworked by nights not always relaxing, will often have the temptation to skip breakfast. This caloric deficiency in the morning will have bad repercussions for the rest of the day.

You don't need a nutritionist, you need to control your urge for eating. You eat a lot more when pregnant.
