Overview

Lose That Baby Fat! is a reality-based fitness program and practical guide for the average woman who is trying to shed unwanted pounds the first year after having a baby. Written in a comprehensive, month-by-month format, Lose That Baby Fat! will provide new moms with a series of fitness benchmarks for the entire first year postpartum. Each chapter begins with a detailed list informing Mom of what she can expect her body to look and feel like each month and also includes several 10-minute workouts, each highlighting a different body part, that even the busiest new mom can fit into her schedule. The exercises are also designed so that they can be varied in intensity and duration as Mom gains strength, flexibility, and endurance after the arrival of her little one.

Editorial Reviews

L.A. Times
Lose That Baby Fat! by LaReine Chabut takes a sensible approach to post-pregnancy exercise.
National Examiner
LaReine Chabut, author of Lose That Baby Fat!, show you how to get rid of extra flab with only 20 minutes of exercise a day...Anyone can benefit from the workouts in this book.
Library Journal
Here are two books that aim to help mothers get into shape. Fitness instructor, personal trainer, and mother Chabut presents an encouraging and supportive 12-month fitness guide including chapters like "Three Months After Birth: Phenomenal Abdominals" that feature clearly explained and illustrated exercises. Varied workouts using an exercise ball, jump rope, resistance bands, and hand weights are included, along with useful month-by-month advice on topics such as "How You May Be Feeling" and "How Your Body May Look." Nutrition coach Keller offers a 30-day guide also customized for new mothers hoping to lose postpartum pounds. Combining gentle exercises with detailed daily meal plans, her easy-to-understand guide provides valuable explanations of nutrition topics. Included are 100-plus healthy recipes, alternative meal plans for vegetarians, shopping lists, and suggested exercises for mom and baby to do together. Lose is well suited to first-time mothers seeking guidance and reassurance about their changing bodies and who want a clear time line for resuming physical activity of increasing intensity. Though the eating plan in Body is sensible and balanced, some readers may object to Keller's frequent mentions of her celebrity clientele, the possibly unrealistic subtitle, and the requirement of making several recipes each day. Still, both books are recommended for larger public libraries.-Ingrid Levin, Florida Atlantic Univ. Libs., Jupiter Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
