If you consume less oil and less salt food for few weeks then it will be alright. At the same time don't completely ignore to use little oil and little salt because these are very important too for normal health.
Try to have some vegetable salad and fruit salad, try to avoid much fat items. Light walking in the morning / evening will help you much on this.

Weight loss after pregnancy is a great challenge for every woman in that stage. The abdomen and overall hips get enlarged due to pregnancy and coming back to shape takes some time. Crash diets or strenuous exercises are not advisable at this stage. A nutritious diet combined with yoga and light stretch exercises will help a person reduce weight in a couple of months. Remember it took nine months to gain this weight and cannot be toned in a few days.
1. Drink lot of water preferably luke warm water at frequent intervals.
2. Include lot of fibers in your diet. They help in weight reduction as the calories from the fibres are not absorbed by the body and drained out.

Tummy and abdomen need to be toned through proper exercises after pregnancy. 30 minutes of walk every day will work wonders on the body. In case you are unable to go out for walk regularly, then the following exercises can help you tone your body:
1. Take a deep breath, tuck in your tummy, pelvic and buttock muscles and hold for one minute. Then exhale and repeat the procedure starting from 10 times a day to even 100 times. This has a miraculous effect in toning the body and firming up the muscles. This was taught to me after my delivery at the nursing home and this has worked wonders.
2. Abdomen can be toned easily by practicing yogasana named 'Paschimottanasan' wherein the person sits on the floor and tries touching the heels of the legs with his fingers. Once the heels are touched, bring your nose to touch the knees. This asana has proven effect of flattening the tummy muscles.
3. Bhujangasana wherein a person lies in backward position on the floor, keep the hands straight and raise the body upto waist without constricting the buttock muscles. This is also known as snake pose and is a special asana for post pregnancy stage. This helps firm up the thighs, buttocks and abdomen.
