Here is my youtube video on how I lost weight:
Now needless to say I am no expert and this is certainly not the most healthiest or correct way of losing weight. I'm just sharing with you things I did that helped me lose the weight. It may or may not work for you. Things I tried may be things you haven't tried before. I don't know, its just an experience that i want to share with you in the hope it could be an inspiration to you all. Please don't' take it too seriously.
1. Drink Water
I drank more than 2.5 litres of water every single day. It was July and it was HOT and the water helped me stay hydrated, energised and most importantly for me- FULL. I especially drank loads before and after a meal to keep my belly feeling full.
2. Breast Feeding
Everyone knows that breast feeding is a good start for your baby. Its also a good start for you.. to lose weight. Research shows you can lose up to 500 calories a day by breastfeeding. Something that is effortless and if done correctly, requires no exercise at all! Brilliant! I kept it up for 40 days!
3. Small lunch- fish and chicken (or any meat) protein.
I had a portion of white fish seasoned in only salt and pepper with salad which had no dressing whatsoever.
That was my lunch for every other day. The days I didn't have fish i would have a small portion of grilled chicken or lamb.
(evening meals were grand however because I needed the energy to keep me going through the night until the early hours of the morning!)
4. Lemon and Water Drink
I used to drink a glass of water with half a lemon squeezed into it one hour before breakfast. This kickstarts your metabolism for the day aiding youth start losing calories straight away. It also neutralises the acids in your belly, helps you feeling energised and has many other benefits which I have listed a video for in the description box of the above video.
yes the dreaded exercise but even I did it!
very easy steps and exercise. I followed this fantastic lady on youtube and did a short video of quick exercises that were easy but effective. The first part of her video is for experts. I skipped it for a 2 minutes to get to the beginner part. Helped me get back into shaped and tone up.
do it through out the day. It only takes up 10 minutes of your time.
the link to that video is also in the description box of my weightless video (link above).
Hope that all helps. Those are the things i did to shift my baby weight and I shifted 4 stones!!! 3.5 stones in a month and half and the other half a stone gradually from then until now.
take care and I shall see you all in my next blog! Share your tips and tricks and advice below if you think it will be of benefit to others.
