Gone Belly Gone!
After four months of hard work, I have finally gotten rid of my postpartum belly.
There is still much to do for my abs to return to pre-pregnancy shape, but I truly feel accomplished. (I gained over 50 pounds during each pregnancy, by the way.)
One thing I have learned from this experience is that losing a postpartum belly is a 3-step process, and takes time and effort.
Today, I'd like to share what the three steps are.
How to lose postpartum belly in 3 steps?
Step 1: Exercise
Exercise is non-negotiable, especially if you want ripped and sexy abs.
To maximize calorie burn, try HIIT workouts with high intensity and short intervals. HIIT workouts combine cardio and weights, and are done at maximum intensity, to create optimal results.
Step 2: Eat Right
Many say that weight loss is 10% exercise and 90% diet.
I say they are right.
A clean, low-carb diet like ketosis or paleo diet cleanses your body, gives you energy, and helps you burn calories efficiently.
Step 3: Motivation
Weight loss doesn't happen overnight. It takes many months to see any result, and can feel frustrating.
If you need help getting over a plateau, try seeking motivation from media. A great place I have found are #fitspo and #fitfam twitter groups. These groups are full of fitness-minded people with their own success stories to share.
Also, seek motivation from celeb moms who have lost their baby weight. After reading about these women's incredible success, I feel empowered to achieve my own goals. Plus, it helps to learn about weight loss diets used by celebrities.
Thanks for reading!
I hope the 3 steps above help you out.
