Want to lose your post-baby belly, but you’re not ready to start working out? No problem! A well-balanced diet can help you shed pounds and shrink your waist. Although your baby is out, you might still have a belly pooch that makes you look like you’re pregnant. Not to mention the stretch marks and the dark line down your abs! Fortunately, you can lose your post baby belly within weeks. It won’t happen overnight, so it’s important to have patience.

Here are some easy diet tips to tackle belly fat after pregnancy:

Keep It Simple

Stay away from complex diets and intense workout routines. At this point, you should clean up your diet and stick to the basics. Eat whole, nutritious foods, fill your plate with veggies, and avoid any product with more than three ingredients. Steer clear of trans fats, added sugar, high-mercury seafood, soda, alcohol, cocktails, and energy drinks.

Take Small, Frequent Small Meals

Your body is recovering right now, so it needs a steady flow of nutrients, especially protein and healthy fats. Make sure your diet includes poultry, lean beef, salmon, tilapia, sardines, avocado, olive oil, almonds, walnuts, flax seeds and other nutrient dense foods. Aim for five to six small meals a day and keep healthy snacks at hand.

Avoid Bad Carbs Diet Tips to Lose Your Post Baby Belly

One of the easiest ways to lose your post baby belly is to avoid bad carbs, such as those found in granola, cookies, breakfast cereals, cake, baked goods, high fructose corn syrup, bagels, white bread, soft drinks, chips, and doughnuts. These foods have no nutritional value and contain tons of calories. They also cause falls in blood sugar, making you feel lethargic and sluggish.

Eat Complex Carbs

Complex carbohydrates help your body recover and keep you full between meals. These nutrients are found in whole grains, vegetables, peas, beans, lentils, whole wheat flour, oat flour, nuts, and seeds. Fructose, the sugar in fruits, can lead to weight gain when consumed in excess. For this reason, it’s recommended to avoid high sugar fruits while on a diet. Stick to oranges, tangerines, grapefruit, berries, avocado, watermelon, lemons, lime, papaya, and kiwi. Dried fruits and juices are high in sugar, so they won’t help you lose weight.

In general, most foods high in complex carbs contain fiber too. Dietary fiber aids in digestion, increases satiety, and slows down sugar absorption into your bloodstream. Fruit and vegetable juices have little or no fiber, so it’s better to avoid them. Eat the whole fruit rather than drinking its juice.

Get a Tummy MassageDiet Tips to Lose Your Post Baby Belly

In addition to healthy eating, regular massage can tone your belly and speed up fat loss. It’s also a great way to stretch your skin and improve its appearance. This form of therapy helps reduce stretch marks, boosts circulation, and supports digestion. You can either give yourself regular massages or hire an expert. For best results, use sage, grapefruit, almond, cypress, or sweet orange oil. Anti-cellulite creams and lotions are recommended for massage too. Make sure you choose a product with chili peppers and other ingredients that raise the body’s temperature.
