We know you don’t have hours to spend at the gym, nor do you have time to prepare six healthy meals with a screaming newborn baby that requires most of your attention every day. So we won’t suggest that you take that route to get your figure back.

Making small, healthy changes to your diet every week can make a big difference over time. Here are five ways to get started.

1. Include fresh fruit and veggies in your diet

Pair a serving of fresh produce with protein with every meal and snack to keep hunger at bay, and to prevent you from snacking on unhealthy alternatives. Top a slice of toast with an egg and avocado for breakfast, and have a slice of low-fat cheese with a fresh apple for a mid-morning snack.

2. Ditch the processed food

Get rid of packaged chips, cookies, snacks and condiments. They are filled with chemical preservatives and high-fructose corn syrup.

3. Give your drinks a make-over

If your goal is to cleanse, water is your best friend. It can be a little boring, but why not jazz your H2O up a little. Opt for sparkling water instead of still, and add a slice of lemon or a mix of berries.

4. Make your salads pop

Salads do tend to get a little boring over time. Try throwing in some unexpected ingredients to add texture, extra nutrition and fun. Sunflower seeds, sliced grapes or strawberries, pita chips, brown rice, chopped steamed broccoli, garbanzo beans, walnuts, fennel slices, fresh herbs, orange slices and a protein of your choice.

5. Don’t deprive yourself

If you feel like something sweet, choose a high-quality dark chocolate and pair it with some fruit, like a pear. These small indulgences will keep you satisfied and on track over the long haul.
