Topic: Any of you mom's tried the low carb diet after giving birth?
January 29, 2020 / By Madisyn Question:
Did it work? I am at a stand still for the last 3 months I haven't lost any more weight despite my efforts. I want to lose the last 10 pounds of my baby weight and I am trying the low carb thing. Any experience?

I'm desperately trying to lose a few pounds myself! I have not tried the low carb diet, however, my brother has. He ate a lot of chicken, tuna, fruits and vegetables, as well as a Slim Fast everyday. He didn't eat any bread, rice, pastas, or any sort of starchy foods. He also ran for 30-60 minutes nearly every day.
He did this diet for about 3 months and lost about 50 lbs (which is a lot of weight to lose in 3 months)! I think what really did it though was his low calorie diet, as well as the exercise, which is ultimately the REAL key to losing weight, carbs or no carbs.
I hope you find what works best for you. :)
Not simple to follow Low crab diet

Sleep in a cold room Sleeping in a cold room is a best way to force your body to heat itself up for hours
people who regularly weigh themselves and keep track of their progress in a journal are more likely to lose weight

wow this is such a common feeling you are not alone at all, i had toendure stories from my relatives about their experiences and it was enough to make you want to turn back time.
i had my daughter 23 monnths ago and i had so much fear, the day came when i woke up from my sleep with back ache and had the 'show' i still did not know what to expect since everyone i knew had a different experience. i wish i had done a bit more research on pain relief etc...
i was too scared to have the epidural and i held out for 7 hours before asking for it and it was too late. The whole experience is like nothing you will ever feel. The contractions hurt so learn to breath and over come them.
know what medication options you want...i used pethadene which takes the edge of contractions and can help you sleep for a while but only lasts about 3 hours.
to help you dilate try sitting up like on a birthing ball or on the toilet, i did this and managed to get my baby to turn around from being back to back. My 16 hours were the worst yet the best.
it is literally like having the owrst constipation ever and your body is trying to get it out.
you wont feel any tearing if you have any, i had 2nd degree tear and it hurt the first 2 times i went for a pee then it was okay. healed pretty quick and 3 weeks later felt like normal.
The pushing is where you need to concentrate and prepare because as soon as the head is out the pain will go away. so the idea is to get dilated quick and to do that you need to get into position that will allow babys head to put pressure on your cervix.
it all sounds so technical and long but trust me i had 16 hour labor and it went by quick!
so just relax, read up on as much as you can about birth positions, medication and breathing and you will feel more confident.
once you go through the experience you will probably do it again so it cant be that bad eh?
wishin you a speedy labor:)
