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?
Just an afterthought: as a vegetarian athlete it might not be best to cut out too many carbs, however protein can be boosted by eating more beans, lentils, nuts and seeds in combination with grains. You have to match incomplete vegetarian proteins throughout the day to make sure they are complete enough for your body to use. Also vegetables like asparagus and spinach have plenty of good protein. I like to use spreads sometimes like nut butter and hummus it’s so good!
