Last week I introduced you to my best friend Shannon from Bird a La Mode where she talked about her post-baby fitness routine (here). Today she will be discussing her diet that shed the baby weight pounds.
Since having a baby I have been asked many times how I lost the baby weight, especially how I was able to do it quickly. So, I thought I would share my secret on the Blog today. Since graduating from BYU with a degree in Health Education, as well as having a minor in P.E./ Coaching, nutrition, exercise and an active lifestyle have been essential to my physical well being. At times I am asked, "What diet are you on?" I must admit, I stare blankly at them as I try to come up with some easy answer. The truth is, I have found that what works best for me is to drink plenty of water and incorporate protein shakes and smaller healthy meals. I know they say breakfast is the most important meal. This is why I hydrate immediately after waking up, then follow the glasses of water with a protein shake mixed in my Blender Bottle. I feel this give me more energy and reduces my need for unnecessary sugars. My first solids of the day are around noon, or later
I am not sure if this exact routine will fit everyone, however, I have found that it works well for me and I feel less lethargic in the mornings and throughout my day.
