As long as the confinement "sit" properly, you can regain your pre-pregnancy weight in just one month, don't you believe it? The following are the four keys to lose weight in confinement, to share with you.

No salt or condiments at all.

Generally speaking, the weight gain during pregnancy is about 12 kg. So how the weight of 12 kilograms disappears from the body has become the focus of new mothers. Now let's calculate, the weight of the baby together with the placenta is about 5.5 kg, and there are 6.5 kg, of which water accounts for more than 60%.

In other words, the water produced by various factors of pregnancy must be slowly excreted after the mother gives birth. Therefore, during the confinement period, if you eat foods that are too salty or contain soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup and other condiments, or eat pickled foods, canned foods, etc., the water in the body will be retained, and it will be difficult to discharge, and the weight will be natural. Can't go down.

This is why it is best for mothers to drink as little water as possible during the first week postpartum. If you cannot achieve the goal of "reducing water and swelling" in the critical first week, but drinking water without scruples will have a negative impact on your metabolism, then it will be difficult to lose weight in the next 3 weeks.

Implement phased supplementation

The main goal of the first week postpartum is to "relieve water and reduce swelling", so that the lochia can be drained, so it is absolutely not possible to supplement with special supplements. The correct concept of tonic is: discharge lochia first, then replenish qi and blood, the more lochia, the less it can be replenished.

Also, master the concept of phased dietary supplements. To put it simply, in the first 2 weeks, because the lochia is not clean, it is not suitable to supplement it. The diet should focus on promoting metabolism and expelling excess water from the body. For example, in the first week, "sesame oil pig liver" is used as the main food to help the uterus to discharge lochia and other wastes; in the second week, "sesame oil kidney" is used to activate blood circulation and prevent back pain. After the 3rd and 4th weeks, when the lochia has cleared, you can start eating "sesame oil chicken" to nourish blood and regulate qi. Some mothers can't bear to refuse their family's love and express that they eat sesame oil chicken as soon as the delivery is over.

In addition, the diet should be more light, less salt, avoiding fat, eating while hot, chewing slowly, refusing snacks, etc. If you can follow these principles, there will be no risk of gaining weight during the confinement period. , the best of both worlds.

Use a girdle and exercise in time

Amy's mother noticed that after giving birth, she must wear a belly belt, preferably even sleeping. This can not only help the recovery of the body, but also prevent visceral sagging and skin sagging, and eliminate stretch marks. However, to use a belly belt that is actually produced for pregnant women, it is a long belt that can be tied freely, along the curve of the body from bottom to top, so that the sagging abdomen can be completely lifted, supported and shaped.

In addition, although the mother should avoid labor, it is necessary to exercise moderately to eliminate the fat on the waist and buttocks and restore elasticity.
Generally speaking, you can start doing exercises such as abdominal muscle contractions and sit-ups 14 days after giving birth. For mothers who like aerobic dance, they can wait 6 weeks before they can start again. In short, the postpartum exercise should be persistent, and the effect will be surprisingly good.

Breastfeeding yourself

In order to make milk, a mother's body uses up the fat tissue stored during pregnancy bit by bit. Making milk every day consumes about 2,092-3,347.2 joules (500-800 calories) of calories. After one month, it will consume 62,760-10,0416 joules (15,000-24,000 calories) more calories than non-breastfeeding mothers. , converted into fat, that is nearly 2 kg of fat!

Therefore, many medical studies have proved that breastfeeding mothers can restore their bodies sooner and reduce the incidence of breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
