Eat your Veggies!!

Any other moms out there trying to get rid of that left over baby weight? My son is only 12 weeks old, so I have a ways to go! I am finding that the second one is a lot harder to recover from (weight wise). Here is a tip that helped after babe #1 and I'm hoping it does the same this time!

Negative Calorie Foods!

Now I know your thinking, "Negative calorie foods? That's ridiculous!", but I'm telling you this actually exists. Let me explain. There are actually foods that take your body more calories to digest than are actually in the food. So when you eat them, your body uses the calories from the food itself first to digest then pulls calories from stored fat to finish the digestion since there are not enough in that actual food. Wow, great news right?! So essentially, food from this list, the more you eat, the more weight you lose. (Exercise helps a lot too!) So eat away, girls and lose that baby weight. You will also be setting a good example for your new baby about eating habits.

Here are a few of those negative calorie foods:

apple, strawberry raspberry, tangerine, cantaloupe, orange peach, blueberry, grapefruit, honey dew melon, watermelon, pineapple, tomato

cucumber, celery, spinach, lettuce, zucchini, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, radish, onion, carrot, garlic, asparagus
