Why Does Nigerian Women Especially Have Big Tommies After Given Birth by preetyb(f): 7:39pm On May 18, 2015
I have come to noticed that most nigeria women tommies dont contract to its normal pre-pregnancy size after given birth. Despite the whole tommy massage and abstinence from cold food and drinks most of them still end up having that same big tommy they were/are trying to avoid.

Because i am also a lady and will some day become a mother, but will not want to have a big tommy after child birth. It is something most or every woman fear before and after given birth.

So pls i want to know if there is any remedy for this predicament?.

During conception there are alot of activities that happens in a woman's body esp. in the abdominal area.Because of the growing foetus the womb will need to expand to accommodate ds new development dr by stretching the muscles of the abdominal walls coupled with ds is d high deposition of adipose tissue(fat).After child birth retraction of ds muscles tend to be difficult but a proper Post-natal exercise that focus more on burning of belly fat and muscle retraction can do a lot of trick.Moreover it's always advisable to perform mild exercises during conception and attend a proper Ante_natal clinic as well

Most times after delivery, our mothers are pampered and all sorts are cooked for them to consume in the name of recovering and breastfeeding. This ought not to be so. As a nursing mother you can stil eat moderately with the consumption of more fiber, protein and less carbohydrates. Do not also forget the place of exercise after you are fit and certified okay. A waist trainer can also be used to combat the excess increase in size of the tummy during pregnancy. #Getwaisted!!!

I had same concerns as u before I got pregnant. Now I am pregnant I am so motivated to loose all belly fat tru ab exercises.I hate flabby mummy belly. It just takes determination. Women who are not exposed tend to lazily allow their tummy fat just because other women in their neighborhood,church,village has fat stomach. Infact they pride in it cos it makes tying of wrapper look balanced n in place. I reject that spirit of mediocrity!!!

Reminds me of a yoruba proverb that says "Eni to ba yo kun ni ke gbowo fun". That's, "it's the person with pot belly that you can entrust with money".

Because Nigerian women tend to live a sedentary lifestyle before after giving birth. During pregnancy they think they can gorge themsleves on food claiming "I'm eating for two". Even years after having babies, they'll still claim it's "baby weight".

It takes serious courage and determination to loose all those weight. The role of Portion control and exercise cannot be over emphasised.

Most times Nigerians don't have a fitness culture, firm up your tummy as a single lady even before getting married by exercising regularly & watching what you swallow. it would be easier to have a flat tummy even after pregnancy when your body is already accustomed to hitting the gym.

Take a cue from J. Lo & Co. Those women exercise like a beast just to be fit.
