Our bodies can take up to 12 weeks to fully recover from pregnancy. Post-pregnancy women will be tired, hungry and less likely to exercise than before they had children. All of these factors mean that your body needs more calories for the same amount of work as before you gave birth, so eating a healthy diet with lots of fruit and vegetables is important for bodily function.
How long does it take me to get back into shape after having kids?
It depends on how much weight you lost during pregnancy or breastfeeding, but most people find themselves fit enough within five years. You may need to put in some extra time by walking every day if you didn’t do this while pregnant or postpartum because your muscles need time to strengthen properly again!
