Sameera Reddy fitness tips, Diet tips for pregnant women and new moms

According to Bollywood actress Sameera Reddy, life during pregnancy is a cakewalk when she compares it to life after delivery. She admits that, unlike what most people assume, she did not gain too much weight during her pregnancy. This is because she was always moving around and active during that time. But after her delivery, she was too tired to take care of herself. Diet and fitness for herself was not a priority. Feeding and caring for her baby left her with no time for herself. She was all the time exhausted and had to literally give herself a mental shaking to get rid of this descent into self-abuse.

There is no doubt that new moms have a lot to deal with. Taking care of a baby for the first time can be taxing and it can leave you in a state of extreme fatigue. This is the time when you forget to take care of yourself and concentrate solely on the needs of your baby.

But Bollywood actress, Sameera Reddy, says that this is the time when you need to be totally selfish about your own needs. As she says in this video, you are the one who carried your baby in her womb for nine months, you gave birth to her and you are looking after her now. She exhorts all new moms to give themselves time and shares her take care of their diet and fitness. And, no, you don’t have to visit a gym for post-pregnancy fitness. You can do it by running around in the house, walking and doing household work too.
