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?
First, I would recommend that she log her food for a week straight to determine how many calories she is actually consuming. She can also log all physical activity she is participating in to determine how much she is actually moving. Based on this you should be able to determine if she is actually in a caloric deficit or not. The only reason she would not be losing is she is consuming more calories than she is burning. After a week you can determine if she needs to eat less or start moving more. Best of luck to you!
