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?
If she is a vegetarian be sure she is getting an adequate amount of protein and fats.
If the body doesnt have stores to rebuild muscles, it’ll default and break down what muscle she already has.
Dark greens and tofu will be her friend, soy is good but overused in many vegetarian diets and the amount of estrogen introduced into the body throws it out of whack.
Get her on weight bearing exercises and basic cardio workouts.
