As you might imagine, we get asked ‘what is the fastest way to lose weight’ all the time. Some would say the fastest way to lose weight would be to severely reduce your food intake.
But wait! Before you do that, remember your body needs a certain amount of nutrition, especially if you are breastfeeding and we absolutely do not believe in starving yourself or going hungry.
We are wary of using the word ‘fast’ when we’re talking about our weight loss plans because it means different things to different people. When we talk about how to lose weight fast, we mean constant and SAFE weight loss, anywhere from a half to 1 kilo a week – and you can see results from mums who have done just that here.
Ignore Hollywood, health is more important that a bony ribcage! Crash diets are bad for you. The last thing you want is to push your body into ‘starvation mode’ and slow your metabolism, which in turns reduces your muscle mass. It’s a short-term weight loss that creates long-term problems and it goes against everything we believe in at Lose Baby Weight.
And quite frankly, mums can’t afford to get run down because kids don’t stop just because you do!
So here are the biggest tips to lose weight ‘fast’ and safely
Remember the bigger you are, the more you will naturally lose at first… and as you get closer to your ideal weight things do start slowing down. Your body needs to find a new equilibrium, so don’t get frustrated, just get happy that you’re moving in the right direction.
