1. Sort Out Your Diet

Be honest with yourself: how healthy are you? The truth is, many women believe they eat healthily, when in actual fact the foods they are consuming are hindering them. You need to cut these things out of your diet:

  • Weight watchers/slimming world/Cambridge diets – anything similar.

  • ‘Diet’ drinks and foods – may have zero calories but contain many rubbish ingredients.

  • Fizzy pops.

  • 0% fat foods – again, food with no fat often has calories and bad ingredients. Fat won’t make you fat providing it comes from good sources.

  • Sweets and chocolate.

  • Sugar.

  • Dairy.

  • White refined carbs.

Eat more of these things instead:

  • Lean meat.

  • Lots of vegetables.

  • Fruit in moderation due to natural sugars.

  • Eggs.

  • Nuts in moderation.

  • Goats cheese and feta cheese in moderation.

  • Almond/coconut milk in place of normal milk.

  • Sweet potatoes instead of white.

  • Brown rice and wholegrain pasta in moderation (preferably after a workout).

2. Get Into an Exercise Routine

Now you need to get into an exercise routine. Diet is about 80% of the battle when it comes to getting in shape, so bear in mind that no matter how much exercise you do, you can’t out train a rubbish diet. If you’re quite unfit, you could start by going on long walks, and then ease yourself into fitness classes, boot camps, or something else you’d enjoy. Speak to a fitness instructor, like one from the i-motion gym in Rotherham.

3. Realize There Are No Quick Fixes

No pill or milkshake is going to make you skinny and give you the body you dream of. There is only one way to achieve a truly awesome physique: a good diet and exercise. Simple! Don’t fall for certain companies claims.  

4. Be Consistent

There will be times where you hit plateaus or feel like giving up, but you shouldn’t. Fitness and health are ongoing, so you should always look to improve yourself. Keep up your workouts and your healthy diet for good – turn it into your lifestyle.

5. Set Small Goals

Keep yourself motivated by setting small goals, e.g: build muscle in the arms to create a toned appearance, get better at squats, etc.

6. Keep a Fitness Diary

By keeping a fitness diary, complete with pictures, you can see just how far you’ve come and keep yourself motivated to try harder and go further.

7. Drink 2 Liters of Water or More Per Day

Water is great for flushing out toxins, so drink 2-4 liters of the stuff per day to keep yourself hydrated and healthy.

Bonus tip: to keep yourself on the wagon, allow yourself one cheat meal with dessert per week. We recommend Sunday!


By following these tips, there’s no way you won’t see results. You’ll love your new lean, healthy, post baby body!
