Hmmm....so many interesting answers!!......In my opinion, we women become accustomed to eating more during pregnancy since fetus growth matters most at that time. We become so much used to such lifestyle in these 9 months that even after delivery it continues (Our elders keep prompting is one more added advantage to gulp in some more for that sake of good for all) We must keep in mind lots of hormonal changes that are going on and we are aging at the same time where metabolism rate slows down. So this is the fact of matter that we gain more weight We must keep a check on our daily intake after delivery and later also: (1) No big meal (2) Eat only when you feel hungry (3) Avoid too many snacking (4) Fasting at least once in a week is good. I do it twice (In the name of Almighty God of course ) All the above were tough for me but still am trying to make it as much as possible. "Every Morsel need a thought before it Enters our mouth" slogan haunts me as and when I am about to eat something (I made it a routine)...hehehe The post seems to be quite big but I lead my voice out for all those who want to lose the Fat!!!
