Breakfast

Breakfast For your morning meal, you should eat one banana, because they help you feel full. You should also consume one pre-package of instant oatmeal (yummy). If you do not want to have oatmeal, then try 2 pieces of buttered toast or just one frozen waffle. Do this each morning for breakfast. Skipping breakfast is not an option for you as you need that energy.

Lunch

For lunch, a turkey sandwich with no fat. Sliced cheese placed on whole wheat bread and a one hundred calorie pack of rice cakes that are flavored.

Choosing a healthy option for lunch can significantly impact your weight loss journey post-pregnancy. Opt for a lean protein like turkey, as it is low in fat and high in essential nutrients. For added health benefits, select whole wheat bread which offers more fiber and nutrients compared to white bread. The fiber content aids in digestion and keeps you feeling full longer, helping to curb those midday cravings. Additionally, a 100 calorie pack of flavored rice cakes can satisfy your taste buds without overindulging in calories, making it a perfect accompaniment to your nutritious sandwich. Remember, portion control and choosing whole foods are key components to losing postpartum weight effectively.

Mid-day Snack

For your mid-day snack, try some fresh fruit. If you do not feel like fruit that day, then a diet candy bar would be just fine. Diet candy bars can be found with the diet food and they do not taste much different from the regular candy bars that you are used to.

Dinner

For dinner, I recommend a frozen diet meal. This should include the entrée, starch and vegetable all in one meal.

Evening Snack

For the evening snack, try a one hundred calorie pack of popcorn. The one hundred calorie packs are awesome as you know you will only be consuming one hundred calories. Speaking in calories, I recommend you keeping track of the amount of calories you consume.

Fluids

Drink a lot of water. Water is good for your body and will work wonders. It will not only keep you hydrated, but it will also help you lose weight.

Exercise

Exercise In the end, do not forget about exercising. You can eat healthy all day long, but it is not going to be effective, unless you pair it off with some exercise. There are many forms of exercises that you can follow. I recommend you creating a plan that is the best for you. I also recommend you turning to the exercise ball, which just so happens to be one of my best friends. There are so many different exercises that you can do on the exercise ball. You can strengthen your thighs, tighten your abs, tighten your calves, get rid of those flabby arms and much more with the exercise bar.

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

Beginning on the 6th I will shop and change the items in the cupboards. I wish to, NO; I WILL apply this strategy into my life and I will come back and update you every 30 days? In the past I've gained 50 lbs during pregnancy, lost 25 lbs at birth and would drop the other 20-25 over a year of no strategy or real lifestyle changes to ensure it sticks. This feels like a winner for me.
