Your body goes through some complex and amazing changes during and after pregnancy. While the journey is unquestionably rewarding, it does take a toll on your body. So, it is important to go easy on yourself when it comes to fitness. It may be tempting to bounce back into your old workout routine right away, but your body needs adequate time to recover from labour. As such, your diet takes the front seat in your weight loss plan. Following a healthy and balanced diet not only helps you to regain much-needed energy but also pass on the nutrients to your baby.
Here are our healthy eating tips to help you get your fitness routine back on track.
Keeping track of your calories makes you more mindful of your portion sizes. It also helps in ensuring that you’re getting the required energy and nutrition through your calories. You can easily manage your food intake by keeping a food diary or using a calorie counter app.
Eating foods that have high fiber has shown to facilitate weight loss. Soluble fiber also helps in slowing down digestion and reducing hunger hormone levels, keeping you fuller for longer and curbing hunger pangs.
Having proteins in your diet can boost metabolism, reduce appetite and decrease calorie intake. Studies show that the body uses more energy to digest proteins than other types of foods, in turn burning more calories. Protein also suppresses appetite by increasing the fullness hormones, namely GLP-1, PYY and CCK. Healthy protein sources include eggs, lean meats, fish, legumes, dairy, nuts and seeds.
The foods you keep around can have a big influence on what you eat. Stocking up on healthy snacks like fruits, vegetables, nuts and yogurt makes healthy food easily accessible when you’re hungry. Sugar and refined carbs such as fruit juice, white flour, and biscuits are high in calories and usually low in nutrients. You can avoid them by sticking to whole foods.
