Many friends have asked me, how I lost postpartum weight (approximately 10kgs). I have been trying different diet plans out of which the strict diet plan by Shilpa Shetty has really worked out for me. Its been 45 days since I’ve been following this and would probably follow to reduce at least 5 kg more.

# Don’t eat those Ghee laddoos, they just increase your body fat.

# 1 hour brisk walk only as your body is not ready for running.

# Postpartum is the best time to reduce fat because lots of calories are used by body to produce milk.
