Eat the Pounds Off

You had the baby, and now you can go back to your old diet routine, right? Wrong. McManus says this is one of the biggest mistakes women make when trying to lose their baby weight. "Being a new mom means you're going to experience serious fatigue until you adjust to your new routine, so you need a diet that can help carry you, not one that will leave you constantly hungry and feeling deprived," she says.

To keep your spirits up, McManus suggests not wasting calories that are nutrient dense. "Treats here and there are perfectly fine, but tons of refined carbs, white breads, and sugary foods will have little gratification and will just end up spiking your blood sugar, making you more tired than you already are." In terms of weight loss, breastfeeding will support some gradual shrinkage, and by taking in adequate nutrients you need, you'll be able to start exercising again faster.
