Weight Loss Help

Posted by on Jan. 18, 2017 at 3:43 PM

Hello everyone,

I am trying to lose the stomach pouch I have got going on. I had ds#2 almost 8 months ago and have not gained weight anywhere else but in the belly. I literally drink water all day. Occassionally drink juice or coffee. I hardly eat junk food. I don't eat a whole lot to begin with.

I don't excerise but spend a lot of time on my feet between the hubby and the baby and the 7 year old and housework. I keep saying I will excerise but never seem to do it. So i guess i am looking for tips or advice on how to lose the belly fat.

Thank you!

The reasoning behind cutting carbs is that many people have candida or bacteria growth in the abdomen. Carbs turn to glucose in the body, glucose feeds the candida/bacteria.  Drop all but veggie carbs and you'll likely notice a decrease in abdomen size.  I went from looking like I was 6 months pregnant to a much smaller belly (don't look pregnant).

You also have stretched skin from pregnancy.  It should get some elasticity back, but sometimes it doesn't.  Toning that area with core exercises may help.  There are plenty of things to do with baby that will do that.  Check YouTube for exercising with baby.

Here's the thing..

Subcutaneous fat is caused by what you eat. Period. If you want to lose belly fat, you have to eat cleanly- no processed items, only water, and you have to exercise as well. There is no special formula...

What would be considered veggie carbs?

I was looking into exercises with the baby. I might start some tomorrow morning.

I drink a lot of water. Ok I try to lol.

I will cut out the few processed items I eat. I make most of the food my family and i eat. So it mostly the junk foods that i eat ever so often that have to go.

All veggies have carbs, but they also have nutrients.  Not a good idea to drop them all.  However, most veggies don't have as many carbs as starchy foods.  So, drop carbs but stick with healthy veggies:  carrots, broccoli, tomatoes, cauliflower, onions, cucumbers, greens, celery, brussels sprouts, cabbage, etc.  Mushrooms are also a good idea!

Drinking alot of water is great. but without gives the body back the nutrients and electrolytes that washes out its not good. Is all day means 3 big glasses or 10 glasses of water?. what do you eat? maybe not enough? Its a lifestyle change. and their is alot more to it.

Contact me i can give you more tips and advise.
