Postpartum Weight Loss- Stop Drinking Weight Loss Drinks
Posted Mar 30 2009 3:04pm
My housekeeper told me that she had lost 10 lbs in a month by drinking a weight loss drink and one meal a day, but was really frustrated with the extra body fat around her middle. She wondered where she was going wrong since none of the weight was coming off the areas that she wanted to lose. I let her know that her body was being deprived and holding onto body fat. I told her she needed to eat small meals more often. She smiled and said, “That’s what I hear from all you fit people!” I gave her examples of what I ate which are 3 meals- my largest at breakfast and my smallest at dinner and in between I eat healthy snacks such as nuts and fruit. She was surprised by how often I ate, but I assured her that by eating more often she’ll keep her metabolism going which will result in more weight loss. I also gave her a couple of my postnatal DVD’s and recommended she workout at least 3 X per week for 30-45 min. She promised to get in a few workouts before her next visit–update to follow.
