Start your day with the Breakfast, take protein rich food and eat more to consume less. Eat food that is low in calories.

Thanks for sharing. I think have more smaller meal in a day definitely helps on reduce the sudden hunger and cause over eating.

Just read this article too on how apple cider vinegar helps lose weight

perhaps for those who like to drink flavoured water instead of plain water, apple cider vinegar can be great to aid in losing weight.
i personally buy them in supermarkets in singapore. can buy online if u lazy to carry them (heavy leh)
helps in maintain healthy body too.

I heard apple cider vinegar is great too but not sure about what can it give us.
I'm drinking balsamic vinegar where it can help someone who has anemia.

I heard that now they said skip breakfast can also slim down. Is this even true?

actually its not about skipping breakfast. its about intermittent fasting
i do intermittent fasting too, but i reverse it, i skip dinner.
Short summary is 16 hours of no-food and 8 hours period where you can eat proper meals.

you can google for intermittent fasting. it works because your body reacts and burn fats during period of no food.

you can have water, plain tea / coffee (with no milk nor sugar) during this period. =)

was just talking to my sisters today.
the idea is to eat more in smaller portion.
Reduce sugar intake (ie rice, cakes, snacks, soft drinks)

It's ok to eat a lot while being pregnant, you need the energy. What you shouldn't do, generally, is to drink sugary drinks. Drink tea or water, this is best for your body. Wishing you a healthy baby! :D

agree with u! water is the best!

avoid those sodas or drinks with lots of sugar

Yes the title describes it!

Eating more often doesn't necessarily mean an increase in food quantity. Split the meals (total calories intake) to smaller portions throughout the day and reduce the total intake to be less than the calories your body burns daily to sustain day to day activities.

Why? Cos if you eat lesser meals, your body may risk slipping into starvation mode as it detects the lack of food so it will store fats instead of burning more of them to last through the starving period. That's why usually people finds it tougher and tougher to lose weight by eating lesser meals as they age cos their body is constantly in starvation mode.

Any other alternatives to natural healthy weight loss? Let's discuss!

@nomnom

Yes, let's discuss.

I am trying to avoid artificial food - basically food that come in boxes, cans and packets!

Eat real food to lose weight! I was watching this video about eating real food to lose weight. It says that only real food can be broken down and digested. Artificial food are stored as fats as they cannot be broken down. It talks about eating right to lose weight.

Eggs is real food. Don't consume anything that says it's artificial - artificial sweetener, artificial flavouring/enhancer etc. And any ingredient that you can't pronounce, don't eat.

My overweight friend went to a dietitian who planned her meals for her and she managed to lose 10 kg when she followed the plan faithfully. Surprisingly, the dietitian told her to avoid brown rice!

that's why alot of pregnant ladies is doing it wrong.. alot of people doing it, don't mean is correct especially the gynae told you that you are gaining too much. like alot of pregnant ladies say pregnant definitely will become fat, which is wrong. if you doing it right, you will be gaining weight not becoming fat. alot of pregnant ladies say pregnant must eat double portion or as much as possible which is wrong too.

books info is not just a guide especially they are written by doctors. fact is fact, so is not a guideline. for example for a singleton, your newborn is 4kg + placental 0.5kg + water bag 1kg + fat stored in body 3kg = 8.5kg. so you should max gain 10kg. if your weight gain is 45kg to 80kg like Qiu Qiu the blogger. obviously you are being unhealthy.

i will see how it goes... even now last week of my 2nd trimester, i'm gaining 0.5kg per week... seriously i can't imagine gaining 2kg per week especially the growth for twin will significantly reduce at week 34. .if the 2kg is not going to the babies, definitely is going to the mother

p.s: anyway i'm a textbook mum. everything i will research, compile, propose and follow until my SO bth.. he keep saying we are asian, not ang mo.. coz the books i read all wrote by ang mo doctors
I was like you lor, i also read alot preggy books when i planning my first child, read alot info, but until i gave birth and realise books are really just for reference .

Just like books say babies pull to stand at 10-11mo, my daughter did it at 6mo plus, while my boys around 11mo. And books said boys usually faster

But anyway i didnt gain alot for my pregnancies. Like some 30- 40kg is really alot leh. i only gained max 10kg cos i gained 2-3kg during 2nd tri, only last tri double, gained 6-7kg

And i think we off topic. This thread should be normal ppl weight loss, not pregnancy weight gain, haha.

Actually i am base on my own pregnancies and all my mummies group pregnancies de. sometimes books info is just a guide . 3rd tri is really fast weight gain except last month of pregnancy it will slow down.
