You must remember that you have gained pregnancy weight over the nine months and it will take some time to lose this weight.

Getting rid of that top layer of midriff fat must be attacked first by choosing fat burning foods and eating nutritional foods in moderate amounts. You should eat meals that are smaller in amounts considering your baby’s nutrition if you are breastfeeding. Try to eat 5 to 6 times a day so that hunger will not be a factor.

It is hard to stick to a weight loss regimen unless you have got a well thought out plan to guide you through all phases of the lose belly fat after pregnancy process. This plan should teach you what foods to eat that will help kick start your metabolism in to burning calories and how to use negative calorie foods to your advantage.

You need to incorporate a good active routine like walking, climbing stairways and yes tending after that beautiful little baby takes effort. Breastfeeding also burns calories and will be a effective tool in losing weight. If you do the above exercises you will lose belly fat after pregnancy but to target midriff fat loss you will have to do more aggressive exercises that can target the midriff area. One exercise that will help reduce the midriff fat especially those women that have had a c-section is reverse crunches. To do this exercise you get down on your back as to do sit-ups but keep your back flat on the mat and bring your legs up bending your knees toward your stomach.

How to lose belly fat after pregnancy doesn’t have to be a dream but can be a reality. Remember this, how much do you want to get back to that teenage shape and what will you sacrifice to get it? There has to be a lifestyle change in your eating habits and activity. Once you get back stay with the midriff fat loss routine and keep it.
