Ask Jillian Michaels: I recently gave birth to my first child how do I lose the baby weight and get back in shape? – INSIDER

Question:I recently gave birth to my first child and I'm finding it harder than expected to get back into shape. How can a new mom like me bounce back from their postpartum body?

Jillian Michaels: One of the all-time most frequent questions I get is "How do I lose the baby weight?"

First of all, give yourself a break. You just built a human and it sounds like you are in your "fourth trimester" the crucial three-to-six-month period after birth when many of the physical, psychological, emotional, and social effects of pregnancy continue.

Unfortunately, we live in a society that has an underlying expectation of women to look just like they did pre-baby ASAP. We literally go from talking about how beautiful the baby bump is and how pregnant mommies glow to saying "wrap things up, tuck away the evidence, and apologize for the mess," as was so well put by Kate Baer.

And this is absurd. Of course, you will eventually want to "bounce back" key work being eventually.

Focusing on weight loss immediately after giving birth is not advantageous. You will be in the process of healing from delivery, exhausted, and possibly breastfeeding. Adding weight loss to your plate is a recipe for heightened stress, a decrease in breast milk production, and an even higher risk of postpartum depression in other words, totally counterproductive. Yes, we have all seen the Hollywood actresses and rock stars that drop crazy amounts of weight seemingly overnight but God only knows what kind of a toll it's taking on them in other areas.

So, my first piece of advice is to give yourself a year off to slowly return to your postpartum weight and level of fitness.

Our primary goals in this "fourth trimester" time period should be as follows:

Side note: I use words like "healing" because it is true, in so many ways. Healing encapsulates the physical, emotional, mental, and even spiritual changes you're faced with right now.

The word isn't meant to scare you. It's meant to validate anything you may be dealing with postpartum whether it's experiencing postpartum depression, recovering from cesarean sections or episiotomies, having feelings of resentment, or noticing a decrease in libido and assure you that it's all normal and all will be OK. But there is simply no need to put extra pressure on yourself to "bounce back" quickly, and trying to do so could compromise all of the above.

Now, that we've gotten that out of the way, the how-to of bouncing back is actually pretty straightforward. Baby weight is the same as any weight you want to lose, from a physiological perspective. That means stored fat, no matter how or why you gained it, can only be burned off one way: eating better and moving more.

So, exactly how much less should you be eating and how often and intensely should you be moving post-delivery?

You must create a calorie deficit to lose weight roughly 3,500 calories to lose a pound, or 500 calories every day in a week, according to the Mayo Clinic.

But you shouldn't go for fast and dramatic weight loss at this time in your life. Even if you aren't breastfeeding, you will still need enough calories and nutrients to fend off fatigue, mitigate postpartum depression, and aid in recovery from pregnancy and delivery. So if you aren't breastfeeding, 1,600 calories a day with unlimited green vegetables is as low as I would recommend you take your diet for at least three months postpartum. Then, if cleared by your doctor, you can go to 1,400 after that, provided you have more than 10 to 15 pounds to lose.

If you are breastfeeding, things get a bit more complicated. Are you looking to shed excess pounds that were gained, or simply maintain your weight? When I say excess, I mean over 10 to 15 lbs. Remember that your body needed to add roughly 9 pounds of fat for breastfeeding purposes. So if you have gained 20 or more pounds of excess fat, then, yes, you are going to want to lose it safely, and in a reasonable time frame that doesn't compromise your health, your sanity, or your baby's milk supply.

If you are breastfeeding, you will want to eat no less than 1,800 calories and you will want to lose no more than two pounds a week. In helping many women get back in shape after having a baby, I have found pretty unilaterally that when new mothers drop more than two pounds a week, the milk supply can be compromised.

If you are only 10 to 15 pounds or so away from your pre-baby weight, this should come off naturally as you continue to breastfeed and exercise over the next three months, without reducing your calorie intake much at all. You could eat anywhere from 2,000 to 2,300 calories a day, going toward the higher end on days you exercise.

Getty Images Now, in order to determine what you should be doing for exercise, how many times a week, and for how long per session, we need to first establish what your delivery was like.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says it's OK to slowly resume exercising as soon as you feel up to it. As a general rule though, it's strongly recommended that no matter the manner of your baby's birth, six weeks off any strenuous training is a must. The body needs time to heal.

If you were fit during pregnancy and had a complication-free vaginal delivery, most doctors will allow or even recommend light cardio activity (think biking, incline walking, or swimming), stretching, resistance training with light weights, or modified body-weight exercises during the first six weeks. Again: This is only for those who had a complication-free delivery and had a decent level of fitness prior to and during pregnancy.

Now, once those six weeks have passed, you should start to acclimate a bit, and anyone can begin to steadily push the up button on your regimen with light resistance training and moderate cardio.

If you had a diastasis recti, or had an episiotomy, C-section, or another procedure, you must speak with your doctor about what is safe for you to do after giving birth.

Once you have hit the three-month postpartum mark, you are generally in the clear to exercise in any way you choose, provided you have had no healing complications and have been diligent about your steady return to fitness.

Keep in mind that many women are not feeling 100% until around six months post-delivery. So during this time period, as you think about returning to more aggressive types of fitness, keep your intensity level at about 70% of what it was pre-pregnancy. That may mean cutting back on your running speed or the amount of weight you're lifting.

On a final note, be gentle, kind, and patient with yourself. Follow the above guidelines if cleared by your doctor and take a year to slowly acclimate to life's changes while returning your body to its pre-baby state.

How to live 40 percent longer | Health – Wahpeton Daily News

Doc, Ive started on this new diet and I wonder what you think, said my patient. Then I hear about the patients latest weight loss plan. There are so many plans out there ... the Noom plan, the Shark Tank diet, the keto diet, the Mediterranean diet, the paleo diet, the sugar-free diet, the low-carbohydrate diet, the one day a week fast. Some diets increase the intake of water, of fiber, of antioxidants and the list goes on. Many of these new plans are variations of a low-carb plan, which I like. I also have found that a weekly fast seems to work for some people.

About 20 years ago, two huge studies compared the low-carbohydrate diet with the low-fat diet. Both studies showed the same thing. People liked the low-carb diet better and with it, they lost more weight easily and initially. After one year, however, most people from both groups regained the weight they had lost. Similar studies through many years showed the same thing, no plan seems to keep the weight off long term. The two questions commonly left unanswered are, is it good to eat less, even without weight loss; and how important is exercise in all this?

The most powerful studies have shown that when people eat 40 percent less than what they would eat if they had no limit, they live about 40 percent longer. It is the calorie count that matters, not weight loss. Add to this the multiple scientific studies that show if an overweight person is fit and in good condition then their risks of death are no greater than for a thin person who is in good condition.

When people ask me, I recommend starting with three to seven days of calorie counting and exercise measurement before any changes are made. The calorie goal depends on ones height and age, but an average sized middle-aged woman or man needs fewer than 1,800-2,000 calories per day for maintenance and at least one mile of walking per day. By the way, I think a balanced diet with plenty of vegetables and fewer carbohydrates makes the transition easier to tolerate and is especially good if one is diabetic or pre-diabetic. The most important point remains fewer calories.

Success! An email has been sent to with a link to confirm list signup.

Error! There was an error processing your request.

Bottom line: Setting a goal to lose weight puts you at risk for disappointment. For heavy and thin people alike, your best chance for success is to be mindful of your calorie intake and exercise regularly. Then, love yourself as you are.

Trying to fight the diabetes belly fat – Newton Now

By Wendy Nugent, Newton Now

Throughout much of my life, Ive been able to eat the amount of food Ive wanted and not gain an ounce, whether I exercised of not.

Now that Im a woman of a certain age, I have issues with gaining weight and I know what others go through. I can look at food and gain weight now. It doesnt take much. I tell my boyfriend I have to exercise way more now and eat way less to weigh 10 pounds more than I used to.

Today, as I write this, it is my official dieting start date, again. I downloaded the Fitness Pal app again on my cell, and Ive been exercising for months and months, but now Im going to watch even closer what I eat. I know. This is not the best time of year to watch what I eat, but Im in the mood to start, so Im doing it. Once I set my mind to something, theres really no stopping me. My goal is to lose five pounds. That might not seem like a lot, but Ive been trying to lose since May, and Ive only gained, but I didnt keep track of my eating and exercising on an app. That seems to be the only time I lose weight is when I do that.

Once, I lost 20 pounds in six months. That was a lot for me. They say, Nothing tastes as good as skinny.

Unfortunately, I made a pumpkin pie for me, last night. I didnt eat any and I will eat some, just slower than usual. Portion control and its sugar-free. I made it with Stevia I bought at Prairie Harvest. Its really good. I just have to resist pouring a ton of whipping cream on it. Thats the danger zone. I love whipping cream on pumpkin pie. Now, Im making myself hungry.

Usually people go on this type of lifestyle change at the first of the year, but I want to do it now. A few years ago when I lost all that weight, I was on the verge of pre-diabetes. I dont want to become diabetic, so I plan on losing a few pounds.

During Thanksgiving, I crossed into a weight zone I dont want to be in. So that was the turning point for me. However, I didnt think I ate that much and I got in at least 4,000 steps every day. From past experience, I know I need to eat 1,200 calories a day while exercising most days to lose weight. That number of calories isnt much, but hey, its all Ive got.

If you know me and notice Im getting crabby, just dangle some cheese in front of my face in case Im hungry. Ill eat it. I also have hypoglycemia and sugar drops can hit me hard and fast. Sometimes I dont notice Im crabby until I say something unkind to another person and wonder where that came from.

For my exercise, I usually run in place at home and even though I have a membership to the Y, I dont take advantage of it much these days. I need to go back, at least put in an appearance.

My favorite machine there is the bicycle-pedaling one. I can sit and exercise. Fun. I get to see the lap-goers pass by me every once in a while. They go places. I dont, except maybe down the weight-loss path were both on.

My favorite time of night to go there is after 9 p.m. when the place slows down. I really dont enjoy working out with a bunch of other sweaty folks near me. My oldest son likes to go late at night, too. Were both night owls. Hes there to build muscle and Im there to felt fat and maybe build some muscle. Who am I kidding? Im there to slenderize.

Since Im a woman of the certain age, I also have belly fat like Ive never had before in my life. I keep thinking about getting liposuction, but I dont think I can afford that. Belly fat is not my friend. Its an uninvited guest to my world.

I thought if I did enough sit-ups, it would go away. No such luck. I think its here to stay. Its a great place to rest things, Im realizing, like my cup of coffee. Handy belly fat. I still dont like it, even though its trying to make me believe its useful and handy. It might be, but I dont want it around.

Im guessing some of you guys out there can relate. Maybe Ill see you at the Y or walking down by Sand Creek on a nice evening. Lets all stay away from diabetes.

SCW at the Medical Fitness Association /AB Show – Club Industry

Club Industry was not involved in the creation of this content.

[Orlando, FL November 13] On Wednesday, November 13, 2019 in Orlando, FL, female directors, managers, trainers and medical personnel, both experienced and novice, from health and wellness facilities all over the USA, gathered on to be inspired and educated by the CEO of SCW Fitness Education, Sara Kooperman, JD, Owner of Shapes Fitness for Women, Ann Gilbert and President of Midtown Health, Debra Siena. These executive women spent the morning exploring Women: Vision, Values & Verve, an exceptionally innovative event supported by the Medical Fitness Association (MFA) and Women in Fitness Association (WIFA). Everyone who attended came with the desire to fuel their fire and advance their career.

The program, based upon both personal resolutions and professional aspirations of these incredible leaders, explored proven strategies and successful practices filled with active discussions. Each individual began their journey by looking at their Vision, examining what they wanted to achieve and developing a vision statement that supported their professional growth. Once a vision was developed, each attendee took the time to clarify and understand her Values so that they aligned with her individual behavior. Each person then developed a purpose based upon the female desire to please everyone while remaining true to herself. This interactive workshop concluded by addressing Verve, reviewing confidence and its ramifications on success. Every woman left with a defined and purposeful vision, a set value and the gusto to take on their future with verve!

Following on the heels of the successful MFA Womens Summit, came along the MFA/WIFA (Women in Fitness Association) Sisterhood Stride. Before sunrise, 30+ women and men gathered in the lobby of the Rosen Centre Hotel. With coffee in one hand and business cards in the other, these energetic early risers talked and walked for a 2-mile trek down I-Drive near the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. This 45-minute active networking session provided an opportunity to meet other fitness and business enthusiasts from 13 states around the country. By the time everyone returned, there was perspiration, exultation and motivation in the air and on the ground.

The week continued with the Athletic Business Show. SCW Fitness Education sponsored the Demo Workout Stage. Fitness professionals, mainly from Florida, provided exercise and movement over two days. The AB Show Expo Hall opened at noon on Thursday, November 14 and so did the SCW Demo Stage. The 20-minute workouts started with some heel kickin line dancing led by June Kittay. Throughout the afternoon there were a variety of classes. Workout participants had the opportunity to sample WaterinMotion, on land, led by SCW CEO Sara Kooperman, Billie Wartenberg and Shapes Fitness For Womens, CEO Ann Gilbert. WaterinMotion is a pre-choreographed, quarterly released aquatic program for all levels. Others participated in programming provided by Zumba, Chiseled Faith, and The Warrior Experience from Alignment Essentials. A little zen relaxed the crowd as they enjoyed a Tai Chi Experience by Jacob Glassmeyer, an upcoming SCW presenter at DC MANIA in February 2020. As the demo staged continued the second day, popular presenters returned filling the workout floor and the expo hall closed to the sound of cowboy boots again.

Next year, SCW Fitness Education will be participating at the MFA/AB Show again in Baltimore, MD November 4-6. Make your plans now to join us. For more information about SCW Fitness Education, visit our website http://www.scwfit.com, Medical Fitness Association http://www.medicalfitness.org, Women in Fitness Association http://www.womeninfitness.org and the Athletic Business Show http://www.abshow.com.

"Throughthe support I received at the Women's Summit, I was empowered to strive for more. More in my career, more in my pursuits, more in my life. I thoroughly enjoyed walking with other like-minded women in the Sisterhood Stride event."

Best NYC Gyms And Fitness Centers For Every Budget In 2020 – Women’s Health

Thomas BarwickGetty Images

Gym chains were having a tough go in New York City for a while. First, the boutique fitness boom happened. Then, the digital workout revolution. Now, OG gyms are cool again, thanks in no small part to the fact that they've stepped up their game recently to win clients back. No matter what you're looking for in a gymtop-notch group classes, locker rooms that feel like spas, or budget-friendly memberships that make it possible to break a sweat without breaking the bankthere's a Big Apple gym for you.

Consider this your guide to finding the best gym in NYC for your particular needs. You'll discover the fitness centers where you're most likely to spot celebs, take your self-care practice to the next level, join a sports league, or just get in a no-fuss workout without having to wait in line for the showers afterward.

Each entry has been handpicked by WH's editorial team and includes information about membership costs, plus a few highlights about each gym that speak to why it's worth ponying up to become a member.

Now, there's no guarantee that you'll cross paths with the likes of Blake Lively if you happen to hit up her gym (of course I had to include Blake's gym), but even if all you leave with is a good ol' fashioned rush of endorphins and a closed exercise ring on your Apple Watch, you'll still be glad you checked out one of the best gyms in NYC, no?

1Best for A+ Amenities

Chelsea Piers Fitness Brooklyn

Monthly Membership Fee: $180

While Chelsea Piers' original location on the West Side Highway is hands down the best place to go if you want to participate in recreational sports like rock climbing, soccer, or volleyball, its shiny new outpost in downtown Brooklyn just beats it as one of the best gyms in NYC.

Why? For starters, it's a recently opened fitness center with two floors of exercise areas that hold all of the gym equipment you could ever need. Plus, it has Peloton bikes, as well as its own Pilates reformer and hot yoga studios.

But the real draw is the fact that CPF BK is the perfect place to practice self-care post workout. Its locker rooms have heated floors, steam rooms, dry saunas, and shower products from Malin + Goetz (heavy sigh). Oh, and did I mention the robes?

2Best CrossFit Box

Solace

Monthly Membership Fee: Starting at $299

If WODs are your preferred way to work out and finding a fitness family is a big reason why you want to join a gym, then consider joining the CrossFit community at Solace in Midtown Manhattan.

There, you'll find dedicated athletes who love burpees, box jumps, and each other. Not to mention, you can work out with some of the city's top trainers, including MTV reality star-turned-cpt, Kenny Santucci.

3Best Group Classes

Equinox

Monthly Membership Fee: Starting at $260

Equinox has 40 "clubs" in NYC, and each one is packed with plenty of equipment to let you exercise on your own time. But the real perk of being a member here is that you get access to all of its great group classes. (Some gyms make you pay extra for certain ones, so read the fine print.)

Better still, Equinox started its own incubator to discover and develop the top talent from NYC's pool of boutique fitness instructors back in 2017. It's called Project by Equinox, and the gym regularly features standouts from its lab on its schedule of classes. The result is that you have the best of both worlds: a boutique fitness experience and a big box gym.

4Best Place To Spot Celebrities

Drive495

Monthly Membership Fee: $249

This inconspicuous fitness center on Broadway in SoHo is where famously fit celebrities like Emily Blunt and Ryan Reynolds work out when they're in town. Even Serena van der Woodsen (I mean, Blake Lively) has been spotted breaking a sweat here (sorry, had to).

So, what draws so many stars to this gym? That would be celebrity trainer Don Saladino, who works with all of the actors above, plus a few more you might just find yourself running next to on the tread.

5Best Big-Box Chain

Crunch

Monthly Membership Fee: Starting at $70

Like yellow cabs and Broadway shows, Crunch gyms are part of the fabric of NYC. The first one opened in the East Village in 1989. Today, there are 45 locations in the tri-state area.

No matter which one you choose to join, you can bank on the fact that you'll find all the basic gym equipment you need to bust out a bootcamp or circuit training workoutwithout all the bells and whistles that might cost you more money every month at other gyms.

6Best Budget-Friendly Option

Planet Fitness

Monthly Membership Fee: $10

Planet Fitness prides itself on being a "judgement-free" zone. You won't find any "critics" here, as murals on its walls readand you won't find any extra costs, either.

Planet Fitness is so cheap that you can find lattes in NYC that cost more than a monthly membership at this gym. There are 20 locations across the five boroughs, making it easy to get in an affordable workout, no matter where you live.

7Best Gym For Families

YMCA

Monthly Membership Fee: Costs vary by location.

The Village People were right, folks: It's fun to be at the YMCA. This is especially true for families who want to work out together because the community fitness centers offer discounts for single-parent and two-parent households.

What's more, the YMCA offers free childcare while you exercise. So you can take a group class, go for a swim, or use the Y's cardio machines or weight room while your kiddos play.

8Best Gym For Night Owls or Early Risers

24 Hour Fitness

Monthly Membership Fee: Starting at $30

As the name implies, the four 24 Hour Fitness locations in NYC are open all daypretty fitting for the city that never sleeps.

Here you'll find the usual gym equipment: free weights, cardio machines, and open exercises spaces. You'll also find perks like a sauna and juice bar, as well as specialty equipment like TRX suspension units.

New Fitness Report Reveals the Most Popular Day of the Week to Work Out Is…Tuesday – PureWow

Peathegee Inc/ Getty Images

ClassPassjust put out their big2019 fitness trends reportand it's official: People love Tuesdays.

After analyzing 100 million workouts and class reservations booked byClassPass members, the companywhichprovidesaccess to various fitness studios in cities around thecontinentcompiled their data toreporteverything from the most popular workout in North America (spoiler alert: its strength training) to the laziest day of the calendar year.

But out of all the findings from the report, a couple stood out to us.Did you know that Tuesday is the most popular day of the week to work out?Combine that with the fact that 5:30 pm is the most common time totakea weekday class and you can pretty muchguarantee we'll be avoiding that post-work Tuesday pilates.

As for the most popular day of the entire year towork out? That was February 19, 2019. If that date rings a bell, its because itwas the day after a dual holiday:Presidents Day and National Drink Wine Day.(This probably indicates there were a slew of guilt-driven workouts following a day of too much boxed Cabernet...But hey, we dont judge.)

You can get the fullClassPass 2019 trend reporthere. We recommend using this important info to help plan your workouts(and help plan when toavoidthose workouts)for the remaining 3 weeks of the year.
