That's What Friends Are For

The birth of a child usually follows with a parade of homemade chocolate chip muffins, cupcakes, sugar cookies in the shape of rattles, and tons of other high-calorie, sugary goodies. Instead of the usual welcome wagon of sweets, ask your friends to pick up a few groceries instead. "People hate to come empty handed when visiting you and your baby for the first time," McManus says. So when your friends and family ask if you need anything, be honest! Ask them to pick up some yogurt they think you'll love, a can of nuts, and whatever other food you may need to keep your energy levels high.

"Your eating pattern is important not only for your energy, but also in determining how quickly you'll feel back to your old self," McManus says. "The more you stick to a healthy diet, the faster you can recover and get back to your exercise and daily routine."
