5 Superfoods That Will Help you Lose Weight After Pregnancy

Moms, just admit it. The hardest thing after pregnancy is… losing all that weight.

You still see a chunky stomach, thunder thighs, batwings in your arms, and… is that a triple chin?!

Fortunately, there’s hope. There are certain superfoods to help you lose weight or get the body you’ve always wanted—even after pregnancy! 

And side note, aside from taking in superfoods, there are other ways to get the same weight loss without spending too much time, money, and energy.

Just read on to find out!

Green Tea

Compounds in green tea increase the burning of fat, especially when you exercise. And did you know you can also burn calories while at rest?

Cool.

Also, according to a study published in the the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, regularly drinking green tea reduces body fat mass, BMI, body weight, subcutaneous fat area, and waist circumference.

Blueberries

Blueberries are known to be chock-full of antioxidants, and these compounds help banish belly fat completely, along with lowering cholesterol and improving glucose control.

They also have fiber, which makes sure you have a healthy functioning digestive system. They also have tannins, which reduce digestive tract inflammation.

Parsley

 

Parsley

Parsley acts more than a garnish. It actually does so much more. It’s very low in calories but actually has a high fiber content, which makes it a great addition to any weight-loss diet.

When taken as tea, parsley has mild diuretic properties that can help you lose all that water weight.

Flaxseed

Flaxseed has lecithin, and this dissolves unhealthy fats from the food in the digestive tract. Fiber and mucilage content then trap these bad fats and eliminate them from your body.

Flaxseed also contains both soluble and insoluble fiber. These boost your body’s metabolism and makes sure that you have a healthy digestive system.

Chlorella

According to a research team from Japan, chlorella has the ability to control gene expression to produce reductions in body fat percentages, total circulating cholesterol, and fasting glucose levels.

In another study found in the Journal of Medicinal Food, “Chlorella intake resulted in noticeable reductions in body fat percentage, serum total cholesterol, and fasting blood glucose levels.”

 


 

Now just think about it. Adding all those superfoods into your daily regimen will surely get rid of all that excess weight, right?

Well, that’s true, but the reality is it’s going to take a lot of work. Money has to be spent to get all those superfoods. Time is needed in order to prepare the meal or snack or drink that uses those superfoods. Dedication and consistency are also important,

For moms, you just don’t have all that. You don’t have the luxury of time; you don’t want to do anything that sounds even just a little bit complicated.

So where does that leave you?

Will the dream of having a drop-dead gorgeous body be just that—a dream?
