Laila revealed her weight loss secrets on the Today Show, saying that losing weight has to be a top priority and a constant work in progress. The following are her tips on how to shape up during and after giving birth:
1. Focusing on a healthy pregnancy. Just because a woman is eating for two doesn’t mean she can eat anything and everything. Healthy eating is the key to a healthy pregnancy. Gaining weight is inevitable for pregnant women, but if they eat healthy, they won’t gain too much weight. Whole grains, lean meat, fruits, and vegetables should be part of every pregnant woman’s diet.

2. Setting short- and long-term goals. Losing the extra pounds by walking at least 30 minutes a day is an example of a short-term goal, while going to the gym to do more strenuous activities is an example of a long-term goal.
3. Incorporating baby into exercise routines. Running strollers, and doing chest push-ups, planks, and other exercise programs are some of the things moms can do with their babies.
4. Using the ‘mom network.’ This helps moms, who share the same experiences, to compare and share with each other effective fitness practices.

Losing weight is not an easy task, and some moms find it harder than other moms to gain back their pre-pregnancy bodies. But exercising and eating the right food are the best ways to shed the baby weight. “I think that’s what we all should aspire—to get back fit and healthy—because that’s what we should all do anyway,” Laila adds.
