In order to successfully lose your pregnancy weight it is crucial to get your body’s metabolism working correctly. One of the easiest way to do this is to eat regularly and to eat high protein snacks which will not only serve to keep away hunger pangs but will also speed increase your body’s metabolism so that you are burning more calories – without actually doing much (the actual process of breaking down foods burns calories – you just need to eat the right foods).
So, instead of eating three medium to large-sized meals per day, Lose Baby Weight advocates eating five to six times a day and consuming smaller meals. You should also always eat breakfast within one hour of rising. This is because your metabolism has slowed down during the night and breakfast will kick-start it up again.
A lot of people try and skip breakfast thinking that will help them lose baby weight but when you skip breakfast, hunger begins to kick in and that actually slows down your metabolism even more which makes shifting that baby belly fat even harder!
Eating more frequent, smaller meals will prevent you from feeling hungry throughout the day. And if you are taking in enough fibre and protein as well as drinking enough water, you’ll actually feel fuller for longer periods of time and be less likely to be tempted by cakes and sweets.
