How to get back to pre-pregnancy weight? Eat right, workout, drink lots of water Blah blah! We all have read about it a zillion times, heard from our friends who have snap back into their pre-pregnancy avatar almost instantly. Don’t get me wrong all that is absolutely correct and there is no easier way to do it and no magic pill. But what are we doing wrong as moms, which creates hurdles in our weight loss journey. I am talking specifically about food and how we eat it. These 3 reasons apply to all moms

Eating your baby’s leftovers

I have done it, you have done it and all moms have done it. Small children are still developing their taste buds and we cannot expect them to eat every thing that we serve. Many times the food is half eaten or even untouched. So we just help ourselves and gobble the food down our throat thinking we should not waste food. While doing this good deed we often forget that we are eating when its not needed! Instead keep it aside and eat it when you intent to, or offer it to the pets in house or strays outside.
