Postpartum Weight Loss?
what's your take on trying supplementation for weight loss after baby. I am planning to give a chance to herbal aid?

Not worth it. Really. There are a few things you need to accept and consider:
1. Weight loss is always about calories. If you consume fewer calories than your body burns, you will lose weight. No herbal pill can do that.
2. Your hormones are still a little wonky after giving birth. Getting on a healthy, calorie deficit diet can not only help with hormonal balance but will result in weight loss even if you're still not back to pre-pregnancy hormone levels.
3. If you are breast feeding it is very important that you not take anything that isn't approved by your ob/gyn and pediatrician.
Look up online the BMR for your goal weight. Eat that many calories a day. Make sure you are eating super nutritious foods -- lots of vegetables, good quality protein, healthy fats. Skip the junk food, fast food, sweets, treats, snacks, etc. Drink plenty of water. When cleared by your ob/gyn start exercising.

Won't work. Diet and exercise works.
