Time to slim down after giving birth

Slimming down after giving birth might seem complicated… But here's how to do it!

Finally, after 9 months of enduring nausea, cramps and the most random food cravings, you're welcoming your tiny bundle of joy into your home. But wait, your pre-pregnancy clothes don't fit anymore and suddenly your once slim silhouette appears to have bulges and cellulite. This screams for an S.O.S!

Why is it difficult to slim down after giving birth?

Were you given the freedom to go on an eating-spree during your pregnancy? Eat for two they say; you will slim down fast after you give birth they say. For a minority of ladies, it is easy to regain their figure –pre-pregnancy, but, unfortunately for most ladies, slipping into your favourite old jeans might be difficult after giving birth.

The 2 main reasons why you're finding it hard to lose weight is your metabolism and new timetable. Your metabolism slows down after you've given birth and the reason to that is due to the fact that you haven't had the time to get active.

Another reason why slimming down is difficult is the fatigue and busy schedule that comes with your new role of being a mom. Your little bundle of joy can be a handful at times, and dealing with her exhausts your mind and body. When your little one is taking a nap, all you want is a nap yourself instead of putting on your running shoes.

How can you regain that body you had post-childbirth

Often, ladies think that the only way to regain that post-pregnancy figure is by dieting. That's your first and biggest mistake. Cutting down on your food will affect your mood and will leave you feeling more tired from running around. The key to slimming down is to find a balance between motherhood and finding some ME-time. But it's hard to find ME-time when you're either making milk or changing diapers. Worry not, as there is one solution.

Say HELLO to your new best friend: Breastfeeding. Apart from the growing stash of diapers, another part of you has also grown. Your lady assets might have grown to a much preferred size due to its content, but did you know that nursing can burn up to 500 calories per day. Breastfeeding helps slim down your abdominal area by releasing the hormone oxytocin, which helps your uterus return to its pre-pregnancy size. Another plus side to breastfeeding is that it lowers your risk of getting breast and ovarian cancer and gives you some quiet time to relax as you bond with your baby.

For quicker results that won't take much of your time, Marie France Bodyline has the solution. Marie France Bodyline BioThermie Plus (BTP) uses the latest radio frequency technology to facilitate and enhance the breakup of fats, non-invasively.

The radio frequency will heat the skin tissue, directly affecting fat tissues, collagen fibres and lymphatic systems. The RF heat also causes collagen to contract, thereby tightening the skin for a firmer look. BTP targets the front and back thighs, buttocks, tummy and arms. Treatment lasts for 30 minutes per session, suitable for mums who can't leave home for long and noticeable results can be seen from the 4th treatment onwards.
