    I can attest to the fact that deep breathing can help reduce fat, been doing for 3 months now. Not a c-section though since I am just in college.

    Not to mention deep breathing is also something that can help you relieve mental strain and stress. That is why meditation and yoga is one of the top practices I try to accomplish. The deep focus and peace of mind it can induce is fantastic.

    Also, you mentioned about the foods that might cause bloating, I guess I should avoid those since I am very much prone to such issues.

    I will definitely incorporate this to my routine and diet.
