Your Questions About Losing Weight After Baby

by Maricela on March 27, 2013

Daniel asks…

Is it really that difficult to lose the baby weight or is it just like losing weight at any point?

I know that as long as you eat properly during pregnancy, that most of the weight comes off a few weeks after pregnancy, but let’s face it, some of us retain weight more heavily than others.

Is losing the baby weight more difficult than losing weight at any other time or is it just like losing weight?

BQ: If it’s harder, why?

Maricela answers:

I personally didn’t have a problem losing my baby weight. Might be because I made it a priority to work out 5 times a week, no matter what. Some people don’t have this drive or privilege because they have so many other things they need to get done. I just planned my day around my workout.

I lost all of my weight by the time my son was 4 months old. My son is now 6 months old and I weigh less now than I did before I got pregnant. It’s the same difficulty, but having a baby makes getting to the gym harder.

Betty asks…

I am first time mom.Do babies lose weight when they start crawling or teething?

My baby is approx. 17 lbs. I wanna know will she lose weight,she is eating very less nowadays.I am worried about her weight.
She is 7 months old

Maricela answers:

My son wasn’t eating properly through teething, my doctor said it was normal and his weight didn’t drop enough to be a worry. Your baby doesn’t seem to be under weight but take her to a doctor or nurse if you are worried. As long as she is getting plenty of fluids she should be fine, my son lost a little weight when he started walking because he didn’t want to sit still long enough to eat a full meal when he worked out the fun stuff he could be doing instead. Take her to a doctor, it’s always better to know the facts from a professional.

Chris asks…

How soon after my baby should I start losing weight?

I’m determined to lose this baby weight! An any extra ! Just wondering how long after I deliver can I start working out and losing the weight?

Maricela answers:

You can start loosing the weight immediately by eating right, breastfeeding and light exercise. Wait for 6 weeks for more strenuous exercise.

The seventeen day diet is if not the healthiest diet out there.The 17 day diet is a weight loss plan available in a book written by Dr. Mike Moreno. Originally created for his overweight patients, depends on a weight loss style called metabolic confusion. Metabolic confusion means you keep changing up what you do so your body doesn’t get used to a routine. This diet is made up of four cycles, the first cycle is to jump start the diet to help rapid weight loss, cleansing, and to burn fat. After seventeen days the next cycle begins, it is supposed to reset your metabolism. The in the third cycle you are now supposed to develop healthy eating habits. The fourth and final cycle is more of a maintenance phase and you use all that you learned through the last three phases and then you have the freedom to eat whatever you want on the weekend.
Foods allowed are lean proteins, healthy fats, and healthy carbohydrates. Foods that are not permitted on this diet are all processed and fried foods. Exercise is suggested to start with only 17 minutes a day though if you can you are physically able. During the first cycle you are expected to lose 10-20 pounds, in the second cycle you would lose 5-10, the third 2.5-5 pounds, and then by the end of the fourth cycle you should be at your ideal weight. Pros of the 17 day diet are that it was created by a doctor specialized in weight loss, promotes healthy eating and exercise, allows you to lose weight at a steady safe rate, vegetarian and diabetes friendly, and it is flexible and sustainable. Cons: some food suggestions are confusing to some followers, there is no online community support or access to experts, and weight loss standard goes beyond most other industry standards of 1-2 pounds per week.
The seventeen day diet uses calorie restrictions and helps people lose weight by constant shifting. The first cycle/stage was designed to eliminate weight as quickly as possible. On ordinary diets your metabolism slows after 17 days but the metabolic confusion avoids that. In the third cycle more foods are introduced and you develop healthy habits during this cycle, also you should increase your exercise time. The fourth cycle is your goal, and should stay on it for the rest of your life, however it is much simpler, on Monday-Friday you eat on the first to third cycles and are permitted to eat whatever you would like on the weekend. This diet has been proven to work and has changed the lives of many.
