It’s up to every mother whether to breastfeed or not, it’s a personal choice, but nowadays, more and more people, especially celebrities, promote breastfeeding.
Serena’s heartbreaking choice
They say it’s more beneficial for a baby’s health. So, take Serena, when she realized breastfeeding is a reason she couldn’t lose her weight, it was totally heartbreaking for her to give it up.
She viewed breastfeeding as a perfect connection with her baby daughter, Alexis Olympia. However, despite a balanced diet and sports, fat just mounted in her body.
It should have been otherwise
In fact, Serena hoped just breastfeeding itself will help her lose weight. She thought she was supposed to be thin. But it didn’t happen this way.
There was a total turnaround, however, when she has decided to quit breastfeeding for her career. She just couldn’t imagine herself without sports.
It appeared she lost all the excess weight quickly after making such a hard decision.
In fact, weight gain during pregnancy and post-partum is almost inevitable. Cheryl Lovelady from Nutrition Department, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, says lactation usually promotes weight loss but not when it comes to women with BMI≥35 kg/m2. While exercise and energy restriction might have a positive effect on weight loss.
