I'm at week 18. I'm trying not to overeat. After giving birth, I'm not going to look like a cow. My method: to eat in moderation and more to go on the street, to walk. Has typed in weight of 3,5 - 4 kg. I eat like this: for breakfast - green tea or tea with lemon, fruit salad (banana, raisins and apple), oatmeal or boiled egg. For the second breakfast, which happens after 1.5 -2 hours, a persimmon. At lunch, eat some first dish (soup, borsch), vegetable salad. On a mid-morning snack I eat sweet cheese with raisins or dried apricots or yogurt, plus green tea. I dine with beet salad with sour cream or stewed vegetables with a piece of boiled chicken or curd with sour cream and yogurt. I always drink pure water from the morning after waking up and at intervals between meals. Alternating for dinner pumpkin, rice, buckwheat.

Before the first pregnancy weighed 50 lbs. Then, during the pregnancy, gained 17 lbs. Preserved after childbirth excess of 6 kg. I was Cesario, and therefore sports exercises weight to lose could not. Morning and evening came out with the baby for a walk, walked for 2-3 hours. In the result six months later – minus 6kg. Now I am pregnant again, but this time try to observe the basics of proper nutrition.

For the first pregnancy, which was at 23, I recovered by 18 kg. After birth, the weight decreased by 6 kg, and the rest disappeared when the daughter was 5 months old. Do not forget that the first months after childbirth will need to follow a diet and eat low-fat beef and buckwheat (so that the baby is not too bothered by colic). In addition, walk with the child as much as possible and all the excess mass will pass. Eat within reasonable limits and weight will be normal.

During pregnancy, I gained a huge amount of kilograms (before pregnancy weighed 60, and before birth 96kg). After giving birth, I set myself the goal of getting myself back to normal, beginning to look for and try diets. Has stopped on a diet "ladder". She helped me lose weight after pregnancy. For 5 days of the diet, it took 4 kg. I think it's normal. Its essence is simple. In the beginning, the body cleanses. On this day, I ate apples, drank water and activated charcoal. The next day, you need to restore the intestinal microflora: there is a cottage cheese, drink fermented milk, yogurt, water. At the next stage, the body needs to be filled with energy by consuming fruits, dried fruits, honey. At the next stage you can eat chicken, greens, vegetables and be sure to drink water. In the final phase of the diet, you can eat cereals, fruits and vegetables. The diet is good, but it is better not to get involved. My advice: start to lose weight with such a diet, and after the adaptation of the body, go for proper nutrition and exercise. Your figure is in your hands!
