Losing pregnancy weight isn’t easy for some women, and it’s for this reason that some choose to remove entire food groups from their diets in an effort to lose weight.
Carbs are sometimes wrongly considered the enemy, however carbohydrate-rich foods like pasta can be included in your healthy eating plan.

This delicious, simple dish has few ingredients but is packed with fibre, vitamins and minerals.
