During pregnancy, a woman generally puts on anywhere between 8-12 kg of weight. Losing this weight becomes difficult as your newborn takes away all your time and energy!
However, a little bit of effort can help you shed those extra pounds. All you need to do is walk!
Why walking helps!
You burn one calorie by taking 20 steps. About 250 calories are burnt in just 5000 steps! 5000 steps may sound like a big deal, but if we consider our daily routine and keep a tab of the number of steps we take, achieving this is actually very easy.
How to do it:
For some of you, it may seem difficult to invest even 20 minutes for yourself from the hustle of daily activities. However, it is not impossible and in most cases just needs a little bit of planning. It is important that you take care of yourself so that you can take better care of your newborn!
Wish you good health always!
