Safe tips to lose weight while breastfeeding without affecting milk supply – that worked for me! Losing weight while breastfeeding doesn’t have to come with the price of affecting your milk supply, at all!! I know because I’ve lost the baby weight three times now, and never had my milk supply suffer. In fact, I’ve had an over-abundance of breast milk all while losing the baby weight quickly. Let’s be completely honest here, I am not just naturally skinny and drop weight eating cheeseburgers. I work out and eat very healthy. I changed my eating habits long ago when I developed IBS in college, from a super unhealthy eating lifestyle. I finally found relief by eating clean, taking probiotics and digestive enzymes to get back on track. Fast forward 10 years after college, to becoming a mom and my healthy diet played a MAJOR role in helping me lose the…

The stress of trying to diet, not sleeping and care for a newborn forces many new mommies to put their weight loss goals off – until some better time, which often doesn’t come.

Weight loss while breastfeeding is entirely possible, and I did it three times. I am actually now pregnant with my fourth baby, so I will be using all these tips ALL OVER AGAIN this fall! I breastfed three babies, and lost the weight mainly becauase of my nutrition. I didn’t really get back into working out regularly until my third was about 9 months old. In between babies, I did the best I could to be active all day and…

The Keto diet is really popular right now, and many mamas have had a lot of success with it, until they start breastfeeding. Doing the Keto diet while breastfeeding is safe and possible if you follow it correctly. With changes in hormones and nutritional needs while breastfeeding, there are some modifications you need to make to your Keto diet, to ensure you can keep up your milk supply and lose weight. If you make the proper changes to your Keto diet while breastfeeding, you can almost effortlessly lose the baby weight while breastfeeding, and experience no issues with your milk supply! I personally don’t follow the keto diet completely. I believe in fruits, veggies, proteins and fats for myself, with a wide range of variability on higher-sugar carbs like fruit. The reason this works for me is because I am a runner. As a runner, I burn more carbs, so…
