Nutrition. 

3-5 balanced meals. Don't cut carbs, just make sure they are complex and eventually limit them since westerns eat too many carbs anyway. 

proteins - fish, meat, cottage cheese... 

Water, forget about jucies - they are all hidden sugars anyway ... 

Now, regarding exericse... 

your doctor probably said no to all abdominal exercises - at least for the first few months... - and you should listen to him - and if you don't you will probably feel tension in the section anyway. so, skip classic crunches etc.

Start with cardio workout - fast walking, jogging, at home cardio,  - you have a few workout videos on our channel...   

let me knwo if you need any help. but first try to go through your diet and let me know what you usually eat ...

You want to get rid of the pouch on your abdomen after having a C-section? This should be possible with a bit of work on your part. You will want to find some abdominal exercises that will stimulate the muscles underneath. Abdominal crunches that entail twisting at your waist to target the lateral muscles and modified situps will help tone them and make the area appear flatter. Eating a lower fat diet will help trim the fat from this area. It will take a few months before you see any difference, so you will have to be patient. :)

hi, you dont mention how long ago you have had the C section, it is important to let all the tissues heal before starting any exercise or you may cause some damage. initially start off with gentle exercises such as swimming or walking and gradually build up the distances you cover.. Starting vigorous exercise before you have completely healed can cause abdominal muscles to tear or separate and injure the incisional area. As with all exercise, build up gradually over a week. Once you are sure your incisional site is fully healed then you can focus more on exercises that target the abdomen such as sit ups and oblique crunches.

When you have a C-sectio you should wait 3 months to a check-up from your doctor to see if you are allowed to work out your abdominal muscles. One of the things your doctor will check is if there is a gap between your abdominal muscles, rectus abdominalis. these muscles nedds to be very close to each other again for you to be able to train them. Coming back to a normal weight (normal BMI) is also important to get a nice abdome. Be aware that your doctor can ask you until 6 months to reatsrt. When you are allowed you may want to check steadyhealth video on youtube to help you:
