What to eat while Pregnant – Is it hard for my partner to lose weight after pregnancy?

Is it hard for my partner to lose weight after pregnancy?


According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, if your partner gains too much weight during pregnancy it can be hard for her to lose weight after having the baby. During pregnancy, fat deposits can increase by more than 33 percent.


Most women who gain the recommended amount of weight end up losing the extra weight in the birth process and in the weeks and months after birth. Breastfeeding also can help her lose extra weight by burning extra calories. Breastfeeding is also known to burn at least 500 calories each day.
