Postpartum dieting can actually add weight and slow down the metabolism. This book explains why it is so difficult to lose after-pregnancy weight quickly and offers sensible eating and exercise plans to lose the weight healthfully.
Every woman who's had a baby knows how difficult it is to take off the extra weight, despite those unrealistic articles promising that you'll be back into your pre-pregnancy clothes within six weeks. Postpartum dieting can actually add weight and slow down the metabolism, making it virtually impossible to shed those stubborn pounds. Outsmarting the Female Fat Cell After Pregnancy shows women why it's so difficult to lose the weight quickly, and why, if women don't adopt a sensible eating and exercise plan (as opposed to crash dieting), they will probably never take off the extra pounds. Whether you had a baby five days ago or five years ago, bestselling author Debra Waterhouse shows women how to shed those hard-to-budge postpartum pounds, sensibly and healthfully.
Debra Waterhouse is a nationally known and respected nutrition expert, a registered dietitian, and a sought-after seminar speaker. She is the author of five successful “Outsmarting” books. She lives in the San Francisco Bay area.
