Lose the Baby Weight with Healthy Food and Exercise

Lose the Baby Weight with Healthy Food and Exercise

Are you trying to lose those few extra pounds or that baby weight you gained while pregnant?  Is the constant demand for love and attention from your baby making it difficult to work out or prepare healthy food?  If so, bistroMD—a chef prepared and physician approved weight loss diet delivery program—may be just what you need.  By combining chef inspiration with physician knowledge, bistroMD provides meals that are good for you and taste great. 

The benefits of bistroMD

BistroMD is designed by a doctor with four children who understands the stress and love that a new baby can add to your life.  Through her experience, she has designed a meal plan that is made for you with many benefits for new moms.

These benefits include:

It is healthy.  While eating bistroMD, you do not need to worry about counting calories, sodium or fat since it has already been counted for you.  The chefs and dietitians work carefully with each other to prepare meals that meet the daily requirements of protein, vegetables, carbohydrates and calories while limiting the intake of sodium and fat. 

It is designed for you.  My bistroMD is a web tool that lets you state your food allergies, mark your favorite foods and even request that certain foods not be sent to you.  With this tool, you can be sure that you will receive a meal that is tailored to your taste buds.

There is no preparation.  With bistroMD all you do is heat, eat and enjoy.  The only preparation required on your end is placing your meals in the freezer once they arrive and zapping it in the microwave when you’re ready to enjoy it.

There is no clean-up.  There are no pots, pans or dishes required with bistroMD.  This gives you extra time to spend with your baby or to relax at home.

Other Weight Loss Tips 

In addition to bistroMD there are some other steps you can take to work off that baby weight and get your body back.  By making small health changes, you can see huge results in the future. 

Work out in the morning or with your baby.  If you think you have no time to exercise, think again.  Set your alarm clock a few minutes early and exercise in the extra time you’ve set aside for yourself.  However, if you need as much sleep as possible, do some jumping jacks or crunches right after you get out of bed.  Other exercise ideas include taking a walk with your baby or going to the park.  For more workout ideas and inspiration click here.

Drink more water.  Drinking plenty of water will help your body recuperate after birth and could even lead to weight loss.  On average, the adult body needs about two liters of water a day; drinking this water throughout the day can keep you full and alert.  This will not only help you lose that baby weight, but it can also help with the symptoms of sleep deprivation. 

Take some time for yourself.  As your life is changing, you may be tempted to spend all your time and energy on your baby.  While quality time and attention are necessary, do not fall into this trap.  You need time for yourself to unwind.  Hire a babysitter or ask a friend or family member to watch your baby while you get a much needed nap, quiet time or do fun activity. 

As your life is changing and your commitments are increasing, do not be stressed about your baby weight.  Simple daily changes such as eating bistroMD, adding a little exercise into your day, drinking more water and taking a break once in a while, will dramatically help reduce stress and lead to weight loss so be prepared to kiss the baby weight goodbye.
