    How To Remove Pregnancy Stretch Marks

    How To Remove Pregnancy Stretch Marks

Be it from puberty, hormone changes, pregnancy or rapid weight loss, most women will get stretch marks at some point in their lives.

    The Best Post Baby Waist Trainer To Shrink Inches

    The Best Post Baby Waist Trainer To Shrink Inches

    SWELLING AND PAIN ARE COMMON SYMPTOMS AFTER GIVING BIRTH. LUCKILY, POST BABY SHRINKING VIOLET WAIST TRAINERS CAN HELP EASE THE PRESSURE

    Everyone from Cardi B to the Kardashians have touted using a waist trainer to help snap back after having a baby, but post baby waist training isn’t a just a fad for celebrities. In fact, the practice of waist training after birth dates back centuries: Japanese mothers turn to a sarashi after birth. Malaysian culture refers to waist training as bengkung, Mexicans use a waist trainer known as the faja. But what exactly is post baby waist training?

    THE BENEFITS OF A POST BABY SHRINKING VIOLET WAIST TRAINING

    The technical term for these now-trendy waist trainers are abdominal binders, and they do just that: They offer compression and support for the abdomen and lower back, while also improving circulation and breathing. Such binders have been prescribed by doctors for years following abdominal surgeries—including c-sections—but over the past decade, waist training designed specifically for post baby women have flooded the marketplace. They come in several styles (postpartum girdles, belts, pull-ons and more) and with different closures (velcro, zippers and hook-and-eye, among others), but the primary benefits remain the same across the board:

    • Supports abdominal muscles and can aid with diastasis recti, a condition where the abdominals remain separated following pregnancy
    • Aids with lower back pain and posture
    • Alleviates pain and pressure (particularly around a c-section incision)
    • Helps reduce swelling

    One thing postpartum waist training won’t do? Magically shrink your waist back to its pre-pregnancy size. That comes primarily through diet, exercise, and time—though a waist trainer will help provide a smoother appearance under clothes, similar to shapewear.  Combined with Clinically Proven - Shrinking Violet Inch Loss body oil these waist training sessions certainly give you a powerful fat bursting boost. Aiding in Shrinking those unwanted inches and helping you to contour and sculpt your body.

    Barring any complications from delivery—and after receiving the go-ahead from your doctor— postpartum waist trainers can be worn immediately after giving birth. Our inch loss experts suggest wearing one for around 10 to 12 hours each day, for up to six to eight weeks postpartum, to receive the full benefits. With that type of constant wear, the postpartum belly wrap you select needs to be one you love—and Shrinking Violets Waist Training Kit will definitely fit the bill. Not only are you supported with your waist trainer but you are also Shrinking those inches with our slimming solution.

    How To Lose Weight By Drinking Less Alcohol

    How To Lose Weight By Drinking Less Alcohol

    One of the easiest ways to boost your weight loss is to curb your alcohol intake. Not only do alcoholic drinks contain calories, they also tend to increase your appetite and reduce your will-power: a very diet-unfriendly combination! Even if your social life doesn’t revolve around bars and clubs, don’t assume it’ll be easy for you to drink less: that post-work glass of wine, or the beers on a lazy Sunday afternoon, can be just as hard to give up. But if your weight loss has slowed recently, cutting down on the booze could be just what you need. After-all, Just one beer a day adds up to 17,000 Calories over the course of a year!

    Alcohol Calories

    Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram.
    That’s 50 calories in a single (25ml) measure of spirits – before you add sugary lemonade or cola.
    There are about 100 calories in a small (125ml) glass of wine.
    A can of beer is around 200 calories (though this can varies according to type and strength).
    Alternatives to Alcohol

    There are plenty of non-alcoholic drinks, ranging from sophisticated bottles which would be perfectly at home on a posh dinner table, to fun teen-friendly fizz.

    If you’re out, many bars have non-alcoholic cocktails: ideal if you want the party factor but not the alcohol content. These will also save you a good few dollars on the price of a regular cocktail.

    Your local supermarket likely stocks a range of non-alcoholic wines in glass bottles; here in the UK, Amé and Shloer are favorites.

    When you’re hosting a barbeque, why not serve something other than plain orange juice or soda for the non-drinkers

    Try some more unusual fruit juices, mixed with sparkling water. Innocent Drinks do a fabulous range using only natural ingredients – guaranteed to be a hit with sophisticated neighbours or your fashion-conscious kids.

    Sugar-free energy drinks can give you a nice caffeine buzz but without the alcohol and calories.
    Good Excuses for Not Drinking

    In an ideal world, friends and family would mind their own business, and none of us would ever need to justify our food and drink choices. But sometimes you might not want the hassle of explaining that you’re on a diet – especially if you know the response will be “Oh, you’re not fat … just one won’t hurt.”

    These explanations are less likely to encourage your friends to try to persuade you into having a drink:

    • “I can’t have alcohol, I’m afraid, I’m on antibiotics.”
    • “I’m driving.”
    • “I’m trying to budget this month.” (Particularly good for students, new parents or downsizers.)
    • “I’ve got a really early start tomorrow.”
    • “I’m not drinking during Lent.” (This one only works during part of the year!)
    • “I’m on a Detox Diet“

    Committing Yourself

    Of course, having something nice and non-alcoholic to drink and having a good excuse helps – but it’s only half the battle won. You need to change your habits so that your good intentions will stick.

    One way is to start by making small changes: enjoy that post-work glass of wine, but make it a small one. Or have one or two beers on a Sunday afternoon instead of three or four.

    Getting alcohol addiction counselling goes a long way in helping you curb or eliminate your alcohol intake, which in turn will help you with your efforts to lose weight.

    Sometimes, it’s easiest to commit to a set period of time – maybe not drinking at all for a month (or for a period such as Lent). The advantage of this is that you’ll retrain yourself to think differently about alcohol: you’ll realise that you don’t need it in order to relax or to enjoy yourself.

    Many people find it easiest to honour a commitment that they’ve made to someone else. If this works for you, tell your spouse, best friend or colleagues that you’re cutting down on alcohol.
