Pregnancy is one of the most important phases of every women’s life. You would have taken very good care to ensure that you get the right food with the right nutrients while you were pregnant. You would have put on a lot of weight during your pregnancy. After your child’s delivery, it is time for you to regain your old body and lose the weight that you’ve gained during pregnancy.
Although losing weight after pregnancy isn’t easy, it is crucial to losing those kilos before its too late. Once too much weight is accumulated, the route to weight loss becomes more complex.
You need to consume approximately 2300 to 2500 calories during pregnancy to ensure a well-balanced diet. Diet during pregnancy must include a wide variety of foods such as whole grain, cereals, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, fish, and dairy products; 60% of your diet should be grain based; 25% protein, and 15% fats and essential oils. While you are focusing on the food, don’t forget the fluids. Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water to meet your fluid requirements. Include at least 2-3 servings of fruits and 4-5 servings of vegetables daily.
