Bye Bye Baby Blubber
Whether you've just had a baby or your kids are already teenagers, many moms struggle to lose their baby weight. Between juggling motherhood, your career and family time, we understand that your weight loss can often get knocked a few pegs down on the priority totem pole. So, we've devised an easy-as-pie meal plan to help you shed the extra pounds while still maintaining the energy to take care of your little ones.
Simply chose one meal from the following list per day. If you are nursing, allow yourself three items per day from the snacks list, in addition to the regular meals; see more details below. Mix it up and try them all!
Blend the following together:
Light wheat or double fiber English muffin, toasted with 1 tsp. peanut butter
1 cup grapes
Egg white omelette:
(Sautee the vegetables in butter-flavored cooking spray until tender, then add egg whites until they set up, fold, and sprinkle with cheese)
1 slice whole-wheat toast with 1 tsp. strawberry jam
1 packet instant oatmeal (mixed with water)
1/4 of a large cantaloupe with 1 tablespoon honey
8 oz. glass of orange juice
3/4 cup high-fiber cold cereal with one cup fat free milk
