Today topic is about “Post pregnancy weight loss diet”.
This 1-day meal plan will give you about 1700 calories. This meal plan is SUITABLE for mothers who just delivered via Cesarian Section and yet, are breastfeeding.
Why does it fit Cesarian mothers? Because they need to wait for 2-4 weeks after delivery, before starting simple exercises and, 6 weeks before engaging in vigorous workout.
Combining both exercises and healthy meals will aid in weight loss post pregnancy. 1700 calories daily is needed to maintain milk supply.
