Gaining weight during pregnancy can be a traumatic experience for any woman. You know it’s part of the natural process but that doesn’t make it any less difficult to deal with does it?
What’s worse is that the extra weight seems to clump together in certain areas, instead of spreading itself out evenly over your entire body. The butt and thighs are typically the most common areas for excess weight to accumulate during pregnancy.
The difficult thing is that because you’re pregnant you can’t simply go on a diet and do the regular things that most of the magazines and TV shows tell people to do…after all, you’re eating for two now, and can’t deprive your baby of what it needs.
So how can you safely lose weight in your thighs during pregnancy, without putting undue stress and strain on your baby?
Well, first I must stress that you should NEVER go on a diet while pregnant, as you simply would not consume enough to feed your baby and keep him/her in perfect health.
With that said, one of the best things you can do to lose weight in your thighs during pregnancy is get regular exercise.
A simple but great exercise to help lose weight in your thighs during pregnancy, that requires no equipment and can even be done at home in front of the TV is to perform lunges. As with all exercises during pregnancy, just remember to use your abdominal muscles to support the spine.
