Moms know it's hard to take off the "baby weight," even many months after giving birth.
There are plenty of reasons this baby fat likes to stick around: hormones, sleep deprivation, less time for workouts or preparing health foods. Of course, nibbling mac-n-cheese and chicken nuggets from your child's plate doesn't help.
Rachael Pontillo is a mom who is quite familiar with all of that, yet she managed to lose 70 lbs. after bearing her second child.
Pontillo is a wellness coach, among other things, who blogs about health and wellness and runs her own company, Holistically Haute.
This week she penned a no-nonsense piece about how she shed those 70 lbs., despite all the usual demands of motherhood. And she offers up strategies on how to teach young children to appreciate healthy food.
Some of her advice? Eat whole, raw foods. Pick exercise you love and never commit to exercise you hate. Don't be a short-order cook.
