I believe that many of today’s diseases are caused by our sedentary lifestyle and bad eating habits. Most people also don’t get enough rest. A healthy, slim, fully functional body and a strong immune system are the basis for a joyful and productive life. Proper nutrition, supplementation, rest, and above all exercise (cardio, weight training, and stretching) will result in such a body.
As a former bodybuilder I have experienced how incredibly good it feels to have a fit body. What amazed me the most are the achievements that can be made from exercising no matter what your current age or shape.
I have made it my mission to share my knowledge and experience with others. It brings me joy and satisfaction improving people’s lives.
When can I start to lose weight?
Your body needs time to recover from labour and birth. So wait until you've had your postnatal check with your GP before you consider losing weight. This is usually between six weeks and eight weeks after you've had your baby.
If you are also breastfeeding, you should wait until you and your baby have got the hang of it before you start to lose weight.
You'll need plenty of energy to adjust to life with your newborn. Starting too soon after giving birth may delay your recovery and make you feel even more tired.
How can I lose weight safely?
Eating healthily, and including plenty of fruit and vegetables in your meals and snacks, will speed your recovery from labour and birth. It will also give you the energy you need to keep up with the demands of being a new parent.
Whether you are breastfeeding or formula feeding, you should aim to eat a healthy diet. Eating well will help you to feel better and help you to keep up your energy levels.
These tips will help you to achieve and maintain a healthy weight:
Make time for breakfast in the morning.
Eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.
Include plenty of fibre-rich foods such as oats, beans, lentils, grains and seeds in your meals.
Include starchy foods such as bread, rice and pasta (preferably wholegrain varieties for added fibre) in every meal.
Go easy on fatty and sugary foods, takeaways, fast food, sweets, cakes, biscuits, pastries and fizzy drinks.
Watch your portions at mealtimes, and the number and type of snacks you eat between meals.
