Ok, new mommys, listen up!

I went from weighing in at about 162 lbs at nine months pregnant, down to weighing in at 122 lbs as of yesterday. That’s right – I lost 40 lbs of baby weight in 3.5 months (Noella will be four months old in two weeks).

I have compiled a list of the 6 Best Foods to Eat After Baby. Whether your goal is to lose weight, produce more breast milk, or just plain get healthy; this list is for you!

Water

Why it worked: Must drink water. Period. This flushed my body daily, kept me hydrated and helped me lose weight.
