Q:

hi whether taking oil massage and very hot bath and sleeping immediately with piles of blankets on us reduce weight?



Sheeba Vijesh

if that was possible wouldn't it be recommended for weight loss... the only reduction will be of water by sweat... i dont think it will help much...

Spoorthy Sb

True sheeba Vijesh but old people pressurise me to do the same..and also say not to drink water much we will bloat...

No! I was told this too after I delivered and boy how I rebelled!

Sweating through exercise will make you reduce. These are false belief by elders..My God..in this summer.. I can't imagine. I may die out of heat stroke.

only workout and clean eating will help u lose weight.

the same happened with me when i delivered,  my mil didnt allow me to drink water, even though if i begged it vl b too hot n in kerala its too hot,  i was lyk oh shit.., y i delivered nw..., that 40 days was hell to me..., with my husband family members.. hope Sheeba Vijesh knws very well this foolishness followed...

Spoorthy Sb

Yes its false belief these elders followed in those old days just now they insists to follow us. In this hot summer very hot bath too tiry for c section. Food restrictions also more not allowing to eat curd,grapes and banana and to drink butter milk and like this list goes on..Restricting us to be in one room and not allowing to eat in front of others including family members..

Sheeba Vijesh

hi Jai shri my mil too said her mom would not allow her to drink any water, luckily for me, the hospital i delivered, on second day dietician came and in front of everyone instructed me to have 3 ltrs of water a day and to have a protein rich, balanced diet... i am so thankful i delivered in that hospital because it solved most of my post delivery problems due t their guidance... spoorthy, you need not rebel their every demands, give in to ones which dont harm you or baby, like eating alone, not so bad, i used to do that too on elders advise... but sleeping under blankets in this weather and no water... those are going to cause some serious problems for you...

spoorthy I wouldn't talk to anyone wen denied water saying I'm having dry mouth..I kept a big bottle under my bed.. seriously ull feel a lot dehydrated after such a hot shower..
