Most often, after childbirth, the weight of a young mother increases. But there are often cases when, having given birth to a baby, the mother discovers that she began to weigh much less than it was before the birth. Excessive thinness is also not an indicator of a beautiful figure, therefore it is completely justified that such a woman is looking for ways to get better.
If you need to get better after giving birth, choose a diet that suits your situation first. If you are breastfeeding, you need protein and carbohydrates. That is, the diet that you will adhere to should not be rigid, restricting your nutrition.
Most likely, you are not eating enough calories per day. Keep a diary in which to write down the calories "eaten" during the day. For example, according to your calculations, you ate 1500 calorie foods during the day. Add another 500-600 to this amount. From now on, this calorie composition should be on your daily menu until you get better.
From high-calorie and healthy dishes, there are the following: all types of dried fruits, vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, muesli, herring, avocado, chocolate, fatty dairy products. Include these dishes in your menu, of course, if you are not allergic to such products.
You now urgently need protein products: both for weight gain and for breastfeeding your baby. Such products include all dairy products, including cheese, cottage cheese, butter, also legumes, all types of meat, fish and nuts.
Remember that vitamins of group B, as well as vitamins D, A, E, C, H are actively involved in weight gain. This means that you should include foods containing these vitamins in your diet.
To avoid the heaviness in the stomach from high-calorie foods - eat a little, but often. While this is difficult when caring for a baby, try not to skip meals every two hours.
Exercising for at least 15-20 minutes a day will help convert the calories received not into fat, but into muscle. Therefore, pay attention to home gymnastics, twisting a hoop at the waist, yoga lessons recorded on video.
