Postpartum belly wrapping or girdling isn't a new concept, but the last few years have seen an explosion in the popularity of modern belly wraps like the Belly Bandit and Tauts, created by super hot celeb mama of four Brooke Burke.
Most women pack on the pounds while pregnant, but for health reasons, some moms-to-be need to *take off the weight. Whether it's due to obesity or other health risk, burning calories while with child isn't always easy. We asked Dr. Yvonne Thornton, a Double-Board Certified Specialist in Obstetrics, Gynecology and Maternal-Fetal Medicine and mother of two, for general guidelines on how expectant women can shed the excess weight safely. Here are her tips.
*"Weight loss during pregnancy should be of a concern, unless the patient is very obese. This specific type of pregnant patient (i.e. obese) should be under strict supervision and managed by an obstetrician." — Dr. Yvonne Thornton
I am 22 years old and am a healthy girl. I don't eat junk food or sweets and I hate chocolate. I pretty much live on my greens. I'm not fat and I'm not skinny. I exercise every day and I'm generally a very active person but I just can't seem to lose weight! I don't want to lose a lot; I just want to get back into the shape I was in a few years ago. I've been on every diet possible and I've even been to the doctor about it, yet nothing has worked. I even went to the extreme of starving myself for days, and even that didn't work.
I'm completely stuck of what to do! I recently got fired from my job too, and my love life has been nonexistent for the past year and half, my sex drive is completely gone, and I'm becoming resistant to even leave the house. Please offer some advice.
