You will also ask the same question that has been plaguing me for quite some time now "how do they manage to stay in their best shape with their hectic lifestyle and a family to attend to?" The answer is quite simple: they are surrounded with dietitian, nutritionists, trainers and chefs who ensure that their weight loss program is followed every step of the way and that the results are going to show in a matter of 5 months or so.
Regular people like us could not help but wonder if we can clad ourselves in bikini 5 months after giving birth.
It might sound like a long shot but if you have patience and whole lot of sacrifice, you can achieve a fitter body.
The thing is, even celebrities have to lose weight the hard way.
They exercise and diet like their lives depended on it.
Start with a healthier diet.
After delivering your baby, cut back on bad carbohydrates.
There are two types of carbohydrates-the starchy ones and the fibrous ones.
The bad ones are the starchy ones.
Make sure you fill up your plate with something loaded with fibers such as whole grain foods.
Skip red meat and just eat it once a week.
You should consider eating more sea foods and poultry meat as they are leaner and healthier.
It is also about how you prepare your food.
Even if you eat poultry if it is submerged in half an inch of flour then it is not too healthy for you.
Use olive oil or vegetable oil instead of simple oil.
Use baking instead of deep frying-you got the picture.
One thing that separates celebrities from average people is their drive to look better.
They capitalize on this and if there are paparazzi trolling after them and making snide remarks about how they look, they are pressured to look their best.
Find out what really motivates you to start slimming down.
If it is body image then make a vision board so you won't forget about your goals.
If it is for health issues, then carefully reconsider the foods you are eating.
The moral of this story is that there is no such thing as a single ideal weight loss program after pregnancy.
What may have worked for others may not turn out to be as successful for you.
Find what program you are more comfortable with so the chances of you succeeding in your goals are higher.
