Your body is now cleaned inside and out and is ready for you to nurture it with the right foods after the castor oil detox… So what foods should you eat after giving birth in order to “snap back”. We have compiled a list of must haves in your diet, that would drop all the pregnancy weight, while also fending off the fat that might try to sneak it’s way into your system after the pregnancy is over.

Keeping in shape after pregnancy is more than just breastfeeding away the calories into the precious new born infant. It will have to be an adjustment to your overall lifestyle. Foods that are particularly rich in anti-inflammatory properties are what you should pay particular attention to putting into your system. Ideally, you are looking for foods that get and keep your iron levels up, replace all the lost calcium as well as get those levels up as well, provide your thyroid with the iodine it needs to recover (very important to have a lightening fast metabolism), as well as give you all the b vitamins you will need for over all recovery as well as maximum muscle rebuild and cell regeneration as well as energy.

Foods that should comprise your diet after giving birth are: 
  • Herbals teas 
  • Starches such as rice
  • Whole Grains
  • Legumes such as peas
  • Green Leafy vegetables
  • Berries and other Fruits
  • A decent amount of Cabbage should be consumes daily! (NB)
  • Water 
  • Natural Juices
  • Almond Milk or other nut based milks
  • Coconut water (at least a glass a day)
  • Mushrooms
  • Kelp
Now, just as important as the food that you should eat are the foods that you should definitely stay away from. They are foods that are high in chemicals, and hormones, as well as foods that are most likely to cause bloat and inflammation. 

Foods that you should definitely stay away from are:
  • Milk and Dairy based products
  • Sugary foods
  • Soy Milk as well as soy byproducts
  • Red Meats
  • Meats in general
  • Snacks and Candies
  • Fizzy Drinks
