Hi, please include whole grain cereals and pulses in your diet. Here are a few tips that will help you:- Exercise 40-45 minutes 4-5 times a week. Eat small frequent meals every 2 -3 hours eat protein rich diet (especially post workout, it will help in building muscle) and improve metabolism. Eat proper breakfast, as 40% of day's energy comes from breakfast. Include healthy fat in your diet like nuts - almonds and walnuts, seeds like pumpkin, watermelon, sunflower seeds, etc. Eat fiber rich diet, it will help to gain early satiety and help you feel full - include fruits and vegetables in your diet avoid junk food, oily food, processed or canned foods. Drink a glass of water every hour daily to optimally hydrate the body. Note: The given prescription can change according to different conditions.

Hello Bimla, Post delivery fat can be quite stubbornly get rid of, but it’s not impossible. I recommend you start with intermittent fasting , follow a low carbohydrate diet along with simple exercises to practice at home. Do a bit of yoga and deep breathing to control stress, as this is also a factor which interferes with weight loss.

Diet modifications mandatory
