Lose Baby Weight, a company with revolutionary weight loss programs, has revealed the results of its new survey* which shows that 88% of Australian mums feel "trapped" at home with their new born baby in the first few months of bringing their baby home, which can cause them to overeat and consume junk food. The mums surveyed said that this then led them to gain weight and made it hard for them to lose their baby weight, and that they also believed this to be a contributory factor in many mums suffering from post natal depression.
Rhian Allen, the founder of Lose Baby Weight and mum of one, says,
“The results of this survey show that many mums struggle in the early months and need extra support and help to learn how to cope with a new baby and the sleep deprivation that goes with it. It is easy to make poor food choices when exhaustion has set in but by following the right healthy eating plan this can have a huge impact on the mum's energy, health and state of mind as well as helping them lose their baby weight".
Allen says that the Lose Baby Weight plans have been created in light of the pressures that new mums are faced with which include sleep deprivation, exhaustion, the need for a constant milk supply, lack of support from family, lack of motivation, lack of time, any injury sustained from the birth and of course a whole new set of priorities. The plans are simple to follow and are split into Breastfeeding of Non Breastfeeding Plans and all plans focus on giving mums the best nutrition possible as well as supplying healthy weight loss recipes, meal plans, easy exercises to follow and daily motivation to keep mums on track.
Allen understands how hard losing baby weight can be and the pressures of being a mum. She has now lost 14kg of her baby weight and although her baby is just 5 months old she stresses that the weight loss wasn't all plain sailing and the key factor is to learn smart ways to cope with the hurdles along the weight loss journey.
"The approach for mums needing to lose weight needs to be totally different to the approach taken to losing weight prior to having a baby and there are a variety of tips, tricks and support on offer to ensure that mums successfully lose their weight and remain in optimal health which is crucial when you are juggling motherhood."
The Lose Baby Weight website also has a number of weight loss testimonials from mums who have taken the plan and succeeded in losing their baby weight against the odds.
