weight gain. Read on to know about the
foods to be avoided post delivery.
Certain foods are known to cause fatigue

depression. Besides, you must also take note that you need to avoid food that
affect the quality and content of your breastmilk.
Read the signs given by your body, it will automatically let you know the foods
to be avoided post delivery.
After the delivery, the new mother not
only has the responsibility to care for the baby, but for herself as well. In a
changed life with added responsibilities, if you do not take good care of
yourself, you will expose yourself all the more to the giant dampener – baby
blues. So in order to fight that post
delivery depression, and that constant
feeling of fatigue, it is important that you check on what you are taking in.
It is a myth that candy bars are energy
boosters. It is true that they make you feel good after consuming them, but the
quick spike of energy is actually a facade. Candy bars basically give a surge
to your blood sugar levels making you feel good. But it stays for a very short
time and no sooner than it crashes, you find yourself in a negative mood. New
mothers who are already victim to post delivery depression should particularly
stay away from candy bars. Such high sugar foods only enhance the depression as
it only raises the hormone levels that cause that depression.
Besides, candy bars contain very high
levels of fat, sugar and calories. When you are already weighed down by the
pregnancy flab, these added calories will not help your cause to get rid of the
extra flab. Post delivery is a restoration period for your body and these candy
bars do not have any nutrition that is so important for your body. According to
experts an occasional bite of dark chocolate, which is a known mood booster can
be consumed, but never a second serving.
Any variety of fried food must be
avoided post delivery. They are extremely high in fat and calories. Food that
is high in oil content induces fatigue and can also cause mood swings,
particularly when you are already coping with baby blues. Burgers, fried meats,
fried eggs, any type of fast food and breaded vegetables should be avoided.
Such food is also very high in trans-fats that are harmful for a healthy heart
and when you are also breastfeeding,
they pass on the negative content to your baby as well. Ensure that the only
fat you consume, be it the cooking medium is always the healthy ones, like
olive oil and canola oil.
Potato or any other varieties of chips
are just empty calories and full of fat. The worst part is that you can go on
consuming them without realising that you have finished a whole packet of
harmful, indigestible fat. They have zero nutrition content and only add to
your pregnancy weight, thereby making it even harder to lose that flab.
It is thereby best to
stay away from such foods as not only do they induce lethargy and a depressed
feeling, but they also add to your worries regarding weight. For new mothers, post
delivery weight loss is a serious challenge. Such foods are not
only harmful but will keep on adding calories making it all the more difficult
for you to shed that extra flab.
