      What diet did u follow after you delivered? I know people say eat healthy like u did during your pregnancy but pregnancy is a different issue..I eat what I crave..I get hungry more often..I have to keep my tummy full or else my system starts shutting down as we all know paki/desi foods r full of chiknai/fats so I dont know what to do..I want to lose weight after my pregnancy..but at the same time I dont want my diet to affect the baby(and milk production)

      I went crazy eating after my baby was here.. I was on special diet througout the pregnancy so I ate VERY healthy, not what I craved!! and now I see it n feel it!!!

      I dont think there is any need for panjeeri, ghee stuff.. I didnt take any and I healed just fine Alhamdulillah!! I was on special diet 3 weeks post pregnancy too so I couldnt eat any fatty fried food and honestly I looked so much better... I was, in fact, glowing!

      so yeah eat healthy, you still need extra calories if you are bfing but make sure you are not getting them from junk food!

      I wish I could eat healthy.

      I found bf cravings to be worst then pregnancy cravings so I was an eating machine for the first month or so. I found once my supply was established I was more in control. If you're planning to breastfeed you will need extra calories, there's no way around it. But breastfeeding burns a lot too.

      I would suggest following the diet you were happy with pre pregnancy and the adding an extra 500 calories for breastfeeding.....choosing what to eat for the extra calories will help, choose fruits and veggies, nuts, low fat dairy etc. And stay well hydrated

      Don't be too hard on yourself, it took you 9 months to put on the weight so don't expect it to come off right away, though for a few lucky ones it does.

      if your mom makes you panjeeri, eat it, for the love of yourself and your body a few months down the line. panjeeri, made right, is not about the ghee or whatever, but it does have a lot of good fats and nuts and nutritious bits that you need.

      being pregnant obviously takes it out of you and your body. panjeeri has a lot of nutritional stuff and its the first 6 weeks after giving birth that are the most crucial in terms of getting all the benefits in it to you. i didn't eat the panjeeri, or really was very careful at all with my diet, and i paid for it later on with a lot of weakness, leg pain, back pain, etc. in addition to the recovery from the c-section which wasn't a walk in the park either.

      i was foolish- don't be foolish!

      and like ramsha said, give yourself at least one year to get the weight off.

      one thing I used to drink was a cup of milk with a Tablespoon of ghee, some haldi and lots of crushed nuts and my stitches were completely healed in 7 days.

      If you guys have access to panjeeri pls do eat it, it doesn't have to be a lot just 2-5 tablespoons per day. Also make sure there is kamar kas in it, that is a herb that really helps with back pain. Yakhni is also great for recovery and it doesn't make you gain weight.

      Things that make us gain weight are desserts, pop( soda) and lots of salan, roti and chawal. So try to eat these in moderation and all should be good.

      I have posted a link to a smoothie, I plan on drinking that smoothie inshAllah during my post pregnancy days. It is very energetic and I have been able to overcome my iron deficiency by drinking that smoothie during pregnancy.

      Also for those who have access to massages pls get them.

      And the most important yet hardest thing to is : GET SOME REST !!!! No amount of good diet is gonna help you if you are letting your body rest to heal itself.

      Don't try to be superwoman, I tried to be superwoman (plus my circumstances were such that I had to do it) and I am paying for that in second pregnancy.

      For those of you breastfeeding, pls keep in mind that some women will start losing weight when child has established a proper feed but for some women the fat loss doesn't take place till the baby is almost 10 months old. Every woman's metabolism is different so stop comparing yourself to them.

      GTG put that cheesecake down, feed it to your hubby

      oh yeah, what automne said too- my mom would finely ground almonds and then she'd mix that into some doodh rooh afza for me. thats another way of getting some nutrition into you if you don't have access to the panjeeri, which is actually quite delicious. i don't know why i didn't eat it :/
