Detailed Answer:

Thanks for sharing your health concern with us.

I have gone through your query.

I would suggest some options to help reduce your weight as soon as possible.

1. Increase the intake of water, up to 4 or 5 liters per day.

2. Avoid fatty, fried foods and sweets. Take plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Reduce carbohydrate intake.

3. Exercise regularly. Yoga helps a lot in this matter. There are several asanas available for achieving fitness in the postpartum period. The abdominal fat also gets reduced in course of time.

There is no need to worry and go for active intervention. With perseverance and patience, you are sure to regain your original form in less than a year.

Hope your query has been clarified. Please feel free to contact for further information. I will be happy to help.
