Hi, My client recently had her 2nd baby about 2 months ago. She’s in her late 20s and an athlete. She lost weight very quickly after the first one, but despite all of her exercise and portion control, she’s not losing now (actually gained 2 pounds). She weaned off of breastfeeding and is trying to cut her carbs, but it’s challenging as a vegetarian.
Any advice on how to make the scale budge after a second kid?
Weight is weight. Fat is fat. Muscle is muscle. The biological mechanisms remain unchanged regardless of the predicament. If she is not losing weight, following a plan you are certain should otherwise be working, then she is going off the plan when she is own her own. It’s usually that simple. You can’t control what she does when you are not around. The stresses of marriage, two kids and if she’s working too, that can get to the best of us. Just give her a break and be patient.
