Therefore, a healthy diet and gentle training is best combined with the procedures for personal care. And in order to achieve maximum results in a short time, you should choose an integrated approach and follow simple tips.

Give preference to healthy foods - this will help you get back in shape faster without harming the baby’s diet. Nutritionists recommend adjusting the mom's diet by the hour, at the same time reducing the size of servings and increasing the number of meals. For nursing mothers are suitable diets with the restriction, but not the exception of evening meals, split meals, calorie counting. It will not be superfluous to consult a doctor: he must determine the daily rate.
- Training - by well-being and level of training If you were friends with sports and before becoming a mother, and the birth was normal, then, according to most experts, you can start training of average intensity 3-4 months after birth. Yoga, Pilates, shaping with the subsequent transition to aerobics and callanetics will do. If health or fitness is in doubt, consult your gynecologist and doctor in the fitness center. Compromise option, suitable for both employed and not very well prepared - light aerobic exercise. Fast walking with a stroller or without it, 10-minute exercise in the mornings and evenings: one has only to start, and in a couple of weeks the result will be visible even from such not very tedious exercises.
- Problem areas - we eliminate gradually To quickly deal with the stomach after childbirth, experts recommend thinking about it in advance. A strong press before pregnancy will help the figure to get sports outlines faster when the baby is already born. But whatever the form of the mother, in the first month after birth, you can learn to breathe the diaphragm. It helps to lose weight and tighten the stomach, and also helps to feel more cheerful throughout the day. Later, the press can be pumped in three-day cycles: today is five minutes for the upper muscles, tomorrow for obliques, the day after tomorrow for the lower ones. But squats and legs are better to perform every day - this is the only way to bring the hips to its original state.
- Skin tone and nourishment for hair In order to tighten and smooth the skin on the abdomen and thighs, you can use ground coffee or sea salt as a scrub, adding a little cream. Rub the home scrub after a warm shower or bath with light circular movements, paying special attention to the problem areas. If the hair is dull or began to fall out - do not panic, as a rule, this is due to the hormonal changes in the body. You can strengthen them with the help of elementary means - for example, applying burdock oil, a raw egg or rye bread crumb before washing your head.
