How to Lose Baby Weight Like a Celebrity
So what can we take away from these celebrity weight loss diet plans? For those who breastfeed like Kate Middleton, there is some great news -- breastfeeding alone can burn an extra 500 to 600 calories a day! Breastfeeding can be a good option for some women to help with losing that baby weight. However, this may not be fast enough for some women.
Some moms may be overwhelmed with having a new baby, which can cause them to turn to eating to help soothe the blues or even to help stay awake for all those nighttime feedings. This often involves easy-to-grab foods, such as sweets and high-fat snacks.
Take some tips from Kourtney and Beyoncé: Opt more for raw veggies, celery with hummus, and fresh fruit for those times where you are searching for some good "comfort food." These options are convenient and healthy, and can help you shed some pounds as well.
Jessica and Kim followed specific weight loss plans, which may be options for you as well. The Atkins diet is one that includes a significant reduction in carbohydrates, which causes your body to burn your fat for energy. This low-carb diet can be effective for weight loss, but it may be challenging to stick with over the long run (as with many diets).
Jessica followed Weight Watchers' diet plan for losing her baby weight. This can be a possible and realistic plan for many new moms to follow. On this weight loss plan, you can basically eat what you want, but you will have to keep track of points (each food is assigned a number of points). This diet is designed to help you learn how to eat healthier and become more active, which may mean more long-term weight loss. Weight Watchers' PointsPlus plan is reported to result in a one- to two-pound weight loss each week.
As you look to apply some of these celebrity weight loss tips, try to avoid doing extreme eating plans, as doing so can make you feel deprived and defeated, and may undermine your ability to care for both yourself and your baby.
