We understand that if you are reading this article, your goal is to quickly lose those extra post-maternity pounds, but don’t forget to factor in your number one priority, your beautiful new born baby.
Researching and selecting the right plan is vital, especially if you are breastfeeding. Naturally, it is going to be a hectic, albeit exciting journey that revolves around your new born, and sometimes you might feel that there isn’t enough time to follow a strict weight loss plan.

We suggest you ease yourself into a weight loss plan and gradually watch yourself lose weight fast. You definitely do not need to follow any crash diet, starve yourself or even follow any rigorous exercise routines. We suggest some simple tips to begin your journey to lose weight fast which will help you enjoy the process of losing weight and encourage you to follow your weight loss plan more religiously.
Drink water: Water helps hydrate and freshen your body. Drink a minimum of 10 to 12 glasses of water everyday to stay energised and keep your body free of toxins.
Breastfeed: Breastfeeding is a natural way to lose weight fast. Breastfeeding is known to burn around 500 calories per day. Read about safe weight loss when breastfeeding here
Balanced meals: Instead of completely cutting back on your meals, start by opting for balanced meals. Eat smart meals that consist of fruits, vegetables, lean meats, fish, low-fat dairy products, etc. We also highly recommend including our Healthy Mummy smoothies in your meal plan. Enriched with all the required nutrients, our Healthy Mummy smoothies are a great meal replacement supplement that keep you energised and help you lose weight in a healthy way.
Walk: Instead of beginning your weight loss plan with rigorous workouts, start by simply taking walks for 15 – 20 mins each day and let your body get used to this new routine. Take the stairs whenever you can and walk to your nearest stores instead of taking your car, this way you will lose weight fast and in a healthy way.
Eat when hungry only: This is extremely important when beginning your journey to fast weight loss. Try to not give into your cravings and eat only healthy meals when you are actually hungry.
Join activity groups: There are a lot of exercise groups for mums looking to lose weight fast post pregnancy. Become a member of your local group and get inspired by others like you.
These are the basic steps to begin your journey to get back into shape post pregnancy. Follow these steps for a few weeks into your weight loss plan. You will find it much easier to stick to the weight loss plan once you have already incorporated these simple changes in your lifestyle.
