@madras2018 , Thanks for dropping in and sharing your opinion. I have a very generic diet plan(which is healthy) and it has worked out for me. I am avoid white rice(opt for only whole grains), and include lots of salads and finish dinner by 8 which has worked out for many a people, including me years ago. I am trying the same and still see that its working out. Regarding Iron, calcium, Vit D tabs- I have started them immediately after my child birth on the advise of my Gync. I am sure most of the recently delivered mothers will atleast have Calcium+Iron. If my diet and moderate work out is not working and still stays stubborn then , yes, seeking dietitians might be an option. As shanvy mam says, control, commitment and consistency are the keys. It applies both to healthy eating and workout. I am yet to see some one who follows the 3Cs and still not loosing weight. If still they are, Yes, professional assistance is a must.
