Get Bikini Body With Low-Carb Diet

CATEGORY: FASHION

low-carb diet/Currently Wearing/Swiss Milk I get asked many times how I got my bikini body back after having Chloe-Sofia. My Osteopath says that if you are more than 35 years old, it will take you around 12 months. And he is right. But I admit that at the beginning I thought it would happen overnight. We are so used to “instant” reality and success in a digital world that we forget how mind and matter work in reality. There is no miraculous answer. In fact, it is very simple: if you want bikini body, you have to work for it.

Six weeks after giving birth I started with gentle post-natal exercises to tone pelvic floor and lower abdominal muscles. And when I went back to work I started eating carbs once a day. What started as a challenge turned into my new lifestyle.

At first I wanted to see if I can drink green smoothies once a day. After one week I felt so good and light that I continued and now, after 10 months, I can’t imagine starting the day without it. I am not big on carbs thus low-carb diet (eating carbs once a day) was something easy to follow.

I prefer to eat carbs during lunch because it takes time to digest them and we eat dinner quite late. Most of the time I bring my own lunch from home:  mix of carbs (rice, beans, lentils or pasta) with vegetables.

We always cook dinner in the evening. Twice a week we have chicken or fish. The rest of the week I eat milk products as they are great alternative to animal protein. I am lactose intolerant but since I found over-the-counter tablets that contain lactase enzyme I can eat milk products without any problems.

I like vegetables baked with cheese, Greek salad with fresh feta cheese or onion soup with toast and grated cheese on the top. In winter we eat raclette or fondue, typical Swiss dishes. When it comes to raclette you can easily replace potatoes with baked cherry tomatoes. It is much easier to digest.

To show how quick it is to prepare a low-carb dish, I teamed up with Swiss Milk to share this easy recipe for vegetarian tortilla with mountain cheese, eggs and cream. It is so delicious that even carnivore like Alex asked for a second serving!

    Oh yum! That looks so good! I’m going to have to go make myself some lunch now, haha. And kudos to you for sticking to such a good diet and exercise routine consistently. You look amazing! Not many people are able to do that…it’s all about overnight, quick fixes..not lifestyle changes. You’re awesome, Miri! 🙂

    You look amazing! A lower card diet has been key for me too. Having gestational diabetes during pregnancy actually really helped me not gain too much weight and showed me how to balance healthy cards and not eat too many. Great tips.

    Your body is on fire and I love your diet tips! I personally love green smoothies and I must admit that losing weight after baby #2 is not as easy! I’m trying to drink lots of water and after 6 weeks I can finally work out again (I gave birth 5 weeks ago). Anyhow, thanks for sharing and being so honest with us!

    I can totally understand why everyone’s always asking you how you got your body back because you look absolutely amazing! As someone who’s an avoid fitness lover, I know that a body like yours doesn’t come easy, it requires A LOT of disciple and I’m sure even more so after having a baby; you’re so right, you have to WORK for it! I applaud your dedication because you look absolutely fantastic, my friend. Unlike you, most of my weaknesses when it comes to food are carbs, lol. I love my bread and pasta a little too much. I think it’s a great idea to eat it once a day during mid-day when trying to obtain a specific body/health goal because it does take time to digest. Thanks for sharing such great tips with us, as well as these yummy looking recipes! I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far, beauty!
