Hello and thank you for submitting your question!

A healthy diet with daily physical activity can support with weight loss; however, there are many other factors that influence your weight, such as age, genetic makeup, metabolism and even stress.1 It can also take your body time to recover from having children, and pregnancy can cause lasting changes in the body.2 I encourage you to ask your doctor and health care team on safe and appropriate ways to help meet your goals as well as nutritional needs.
