Fastest way to lose weight after baby.

What is the fastest most effective way to lose weight after having a baby.. Im getting married soon and really feel like I look like a beached whale. I think every bride should feel beautiful on their wedding day but I don't feel like I will if I continue to look like this. Anyone have any good advice?!

  • I loved the South Beach Diet. It works if you follow it and it's more a lesson on how to eat right. The food is really good, which is always a plus.

  • Esp if you are breastfeeding you shouldn't lose more than 5 pounds per week. a healthy diet and activity is the best way to permanently lose weight.
    btw beauty is a state of mind, not a dress size.

  • Exclusive breastfeeding and ditching the stroller in favour of slings/wraps.

  • I hear breastfeeding makes you drop pounds the fastest. And walking. I guess I'm with ladysavage.

  • Eating awesomely healthy and breastfeeding have worked for me. I have boundless amounts of energy. Part of that I can say is from green smoothies!

  • The South Beach Diet...it's awesome! It's not a "low carb" diet, it teaches how to eat healthy carbs and foods. After I had my first son, I lost 53 pounds on that diet and I plan to use it again after having this baby!
