Weight-loss struggles are real! It might sound a bit cliched but it is true that reducing weight is harder than gaining those extra kilos. A casual indulgent bite or simply slouching on that sofa can result in an automatic weight gain. Apart from this, there are many other factors like pregnancy that contribute to weight gain commonly. In this article, we will be detailing about 3 super effective herbal tea recipes that you need to drink as a part of a post-pregnancy weight loss diet. In India, most kitchens would have these spices and masala powders easily available. For others, the ingredients are a no big deal to get it from the market.
No matter how much you ridicule this gaining process but once the excess weight shows up on your weighing scale it needs to be managed. No, we aren’t up to any sort of body shaming but it’s just that a well-balanced weight ensures good health. For that matter, the real metric to watch out for is the BMI index and not just the weight individually. BMI of a person indicates the right weight vis-a-vis your height. Being overweight especially after the delivery can give rise to a gamut of both physical and mental health issues. So following a post-pregnancy weight loss diet becomes significant here.
