What To Eat During A Mommy Makeover Recovery

The first thing you should know is that it’s going to take time for your body to heal. This is normal, and it’s not something that you should be worried about. In fact, it’s in your best interest to give yourself the time that you need to get back on track with your diet, especially if you have a history of eating poorly or eating too much junk food in general.

A healthy diet is an essential part of any weight loss plan, whether you’re trying to lose five pounds or fifty. It’s important not only because it improves your overall health but also because it helps ensure that you’ll be able to get back into shape after surgery as quickly as possible.

The truth is that there are no hard-and-fast rules when it comes to what foods are safe for pregnant women after surgery. However, there are some recommendations that can help guide you when making decisions about what foods are right for you at this stage in your life.

Drink Plenty Of Water

Your body needs water to flush out toxins and waste products. Drinking plenty of water will help keep your skin looking fresh and clear. It will also help prevent constipation, which can be uncomfortable while recovering from surgery.

Lean Proteins

Protein helps with muscle repair and growth, so it’s an important part of any post-surgery diet. For example, lean chicken and turkey breast are both great sources of protein that won’t leave you feeling bloated or uncomfortable. Fish like salmon also provides plenty of protein without too much fat or calories. Eggs are another excellent source of protein — two eggs provide about 13 grams of protein!

Green vegetables

Green leafy vegetables contain many nutrients that are important for healing after surgery, such as vitamin K and beta-carotene (a precursor to vitamin A). Kale, spinach and romaine lettuce are all good choices for this reason!
