Hi
Congratulations on your motherhood. It is recommended that you don't start dieting immediately till the time you feeding the baby completely. You can start taking little walks and basic stretches involving your pelvic floor exercises. After 3 months you can gradually start exercising completely. Have nutritious home cooked food. Keep yourself hydrated. Avoid too oily n spicy foods for 6months.

First and foremost you must understand losing your weight is a very gradual process. You should have strong determination and patience if you want to lose weight. And it cannot happen suddenly. Losing too mich suddenly is also not good for health. You have to follow a strict diet and exercise schedule. Regarding diet - have small multiple meals instead of 3 big meals, eat food rich in proteins and fibres like egg white boiled chicken vegetables fruits pulses, avoid carbohydrate rich foods like rice curds oily foods sweets ghee and other junk food. Regarding exercises - start slowly with brisk walking, then change over to jogging, running and other abdominal exercises. Never over strain yourself. And always keep yourself well hydrated and enjoy whatever you do...consult dietitian they will do the needful.
