Pregnancy & Slimming Down
Does every new mother need to take slimming treatment in post-maternal period?
Basically every mother should take slimming treatment because during pregnancy, your fats and skin tissues are greatly stretched. If no slimming treatment is taken in post-maternal period, your muscles will become flabby and the clumsy body figure will be remained.
How to reduce intakes of calories in the post-maternal period?
During pregnancy you should take an extra of 300 calories on average everyday. When you reach post-maternal period, then it depends if you decide to breast feed your baby. Your diet should be resumed as before pregnancy if no breast feeding is taken ( i.e. reduce 200-300 calories per day). However for breast feeding mothers, your calories intake should be more or less the same as pregnancy period in order to maintain the nutrient content of breast milk. Of course you should avoid high fat and high sugar content food.
Will all women get the dark lines initiated by pregnancy? Is there any way to avoid it?
I'm afraid yes! As the skin is being stretched and the skin tissues are being disturbed, there will be contours of dark lines. Although there is no way to eliminate it perfectly, there are some preventive measures to be taken, including to reduce intake of high fat content food, control weight gain, use of anti-linea nigra cream and maintain skin moisture, appropriate exercise and etc..
Can mothers resume slim and shapely bodies years after post-maternality?
Many mothers remain the clumsy body figures for no slimming down in post-maternal period. Years after years they may be mistaken that there's no way to resume their shapely bodies so that they lose confident and become indecisive to slimming treatments. But this is totally wrong! In fact you may start your slimming treatment no matter how your figure becomes.
