Even if you manage to shed off the pregnancy weight by some miracle, chances are that you will still get heavier every year. Unless you are Shilpa Shetty or Kareena Kapoor, you will find yourself gaining a little weight with every passing year inspite of your best efforts to avoid it. With every passing year it will become more difficult to beat!


We mommies have one common habit that is wrecking our health. It is the habit of finishing off your kids' food. In an attempt to reduce wastage, we eat up much more than we should. We manage to save the food from going waste, but what about the damage it does to our health? You might argue that when you eat your child's leftover food, you don't really overeat because you eat lesser of your own food. But do you know that you still pack more calories in than you should?

The food we serve to our children is usually more calorie dense than our own. We tend to add in ghee, butter, cream or cheese to their food. When you eat half of it, you take in more calories than you bargained for! This is what is making you fat, mommy!

If you would like to get rid of the mommy weight, first get rid of this mommy habit.
