One of the most challenging times to lose weight is the post-pregnancy period. Women tend to gain weight during pregnancy. It’s only natural. However, losing the baby fat is the hard part. the 321 Baby Bulge be Gone program by celebrity fitness trainer Ramona Braganze claims to help new moms get their old bodies back in this challenging time.
Known for her work with hot celebrities moms like Jessica Alba, Halle Berry, and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, it was only a matter of time until Ramona Braganza (picture on the left) took her program and made it public.
This is the 321 Baby Bulge Be Gone program, a way for new mothers to shake off the pregnancy weight and get back to the way they formerly were before.
Nutrition and Exercise
The nutritional approach of the 321 Baby Bulge Be Gone program is very simple: fresh veggies, lean protein, complex carbs, and lots of water to keep yourself as hydrated as possible. This is all sound advice to help you get all the nutrients you need and also enable you to do rigorous workouts to shed off the body fat.
You get detailed nutritional guidelines with the program.
The exercise part of this program comes in 3 phases. Each phase is 4 weeks long.
Phase 1: a 20-25 minute workout consisting of 3 Core segments, 2 Cardio segments, and 1 Circuit Strength segment. The focus is on the Core and Abdominal muscles. You will need to workout 5 times each week so expect to work hard. You can do these exercises at home with minimal equipment. I do recommend to get some 5 pound dumbbells for the program.
Phase 2: In this phase the workout time is increased to 40 minutes, consisting of 3 Cardio segments, 2 Core segments and 1 Circuit Strength segment. Again, expect to make an effort for this to work as you would like to.
Phase 3: The final 4 weeks of the 321 Baby Bulge Be Gone program you are performing the original 321 Training Method that Ramona uses with many of her celebrity clients.
Each workout is 1 hour long and combines 3 Cardio segments, 2 Circuit Strength segments, and 1 Core segment. The key in this phase is to make the workouts as intensive as possible to burn more and more body fat and get you in the most toned shape possible.
Each of the phases costs about $35 from the official site but you can get them all for about $85 if you choose to purchase them all together.
Pros and Cons
- Ramona is an expert trainer with 20 years of experience
- She has real life success stories
- The program is affordable
- Encourages healthy eating and a combination of cardio and strength workouts.
- Program is strictly for women
- There doesn’t seem to be a support system in place
- Results may not be the same as for celebrities.
All in all, the 321 Baby Bulge Be Gone program looks like the real deal. However, you should remember that celebrity diets often don’t work as well for regular folk as they do for celebrities who can afford their own dietician, great equipment, personal trainer, and so on.
So, if you do decide to follow this program do so as it can work for you, just don’t expect to get a body like Jessica Alba’s at the end of the 12 weeks as that may be too much to aim for.
Another option for new moms who wish to get fit is the Fit Yummy Mummy program which has a lot of real life success stories.
