How Do I Flatten My Post Pregnancy Belly? - Getting Your Pre-Baby Body Back by Jenna Dotson

Lots of moms ask the question, "how do I flatten my post pregnancy belly?" Now that you've given birth, you are concerned about the way you look. What you need to do first is to take a deep breath and realize that it took awhile to get the weight on and it will take some time to get it off. Rome wasn't built in a day, but by sticking with a good routine, you will see the results.

So, "how do I flatten my post pregnancy belly?" There are some ways to speed up the process and enable you to see quicker results. Many moms quit their workouts too early or think that they don't have the time to exercise. By doing the right exercises and doing it efficiently, you can lose weight after pregnancy and keep it off in less time.

A great way to do this is by sticking with a good nutrition program. Learning to eat right is key to losing the pounds. Many moms make the mistake of eating quick meals, but using the wrong ingredients. Use healthy fresh ingredients and stay away from processed, fatty foods. Lots of fresh fruits and veggies along with lean meats are the perfect combination for losing that post pregnancy belly.

Although it might be hard at first to resist the temptation of fast foods, because you are taking care of a baby, don't let that get in your way of your goal to look and feel your best. Try to find the time when baby is napping or happily playing to prepare meals in advance. Cut up the veggies and prepare meats in advance and you will soon be in a routine that will save you much needed time.

Exercise is also the answer to your question, "how do I flatten my post pregnancy belly?" Another great way to losing the post pregnancy weight is to find an exercise routine that works the entire body. Full body workouts are much more efficient at burning fat and calories and will also give your metabolism a kick. A program that includes squats, v-ups, lunges and dumbbell presses, to name a few, will increase your metabolism and burn calories quicker. By working more areas of your body at once, you save time and will spend less of it on exercise.

I hope these tips have inspired you to get out there and start to regain that pre-baby shape you so desire. I am a mom of three and know how hard it can be to motivate yourself to take care of you. Moms are always worrying about everyone else, but tend to neglect ourselves.
