Title: THE BABY FAT DIET
Authors: Monica Bearden, RD, and Shara Aaron, MS, RD
Publisher: Alpha (Penguin Books)
Genre: Diet/healthy living
When you’re pregnant, you are thrilled to be “eating for two.” But sometimes, the eating for two turns out to be weight gain for three. After you deliver a six-, seven-, or eight-pound baby, then you have all the weight that you gained during pregnancy still around your middle, sometimes years after the baby is born.
THE BABY FAT DIET is a simple, easy-to-live-by guide that, if you follow the plan, will help you lose weight and feel better in the progress. Both authors are registered dietitians, and have detailed menus, shopping lists, among other things in this book.
Topics included are:
a mom’s built-in weight-loss mechanism—breastfeeding
eating for one again—the importance of portion sizes
breakfast as a weight-loss ally
pairing pleasure with healthy foods
exercising to The Wiggles—and other ways to get moving
Included at the end of each chapter is a section called Baby Fat Tips that includes a brief recap of the chapter, plus plenty of room to write down what you have learned from the chapter so it can be applied to your life. Also included are Fabulous Facts in each chapter that includes invaluable information.
The book reads like a conversation over the dining room table. I sat down to read one chapter last night, and before I realized it, I’d read over half the book. I thoroughly loved the invaluable Fabulous Facts. Even though my “baby” which caused me weight gain is years past the newborn stage, years past the diaper stage, and is in the fixing to graduate high school stage, THE BABY FAT DIET is a book that I will be reading and re-reading to get the most out of it. This is truly a book that every mother needs, to help them lose the weight they gain during pregnancy and keep it off. $14.95. 228 pages.
