Breastfeeding has many benefits for the mother of the child. Breastfeeding leads to lower waist volumes, which are fixed for 10 years after childbirth. For example, women who breastfed for more than half a year had lower waist sizes than women who fed for less than six months.
The study, conducted by scientists, involved 678 women. They were observed for 7-15 years after the birth of children. Specialists in Pittsburgh and Michigan have identified a link between breastfeeding duration and waist size. According to experts, the body spends 500 extra calories per day for the production of breast milk.
That is, breastfeeding is a catalyst for fat burning processes. Experts remind that the formation of fat in the waist can lead to diseases of the heart and blood vessels. This figure is even more accurate than BMI.
