These pumpkin protein lactation bars will seriously curb your cravings for all things pumpkin, as well as boost your milk supply! There is a secret weapon in these bars, which I will go over that includes a lactation blend of ingredients that are all known to increase lactation. These bars are also healthy, low carb, and delicious, so if you are trying to lose the baby weight, and struggling with sugar cravings, these will help! In my program, I teach mamas how to eat while breastfeeding to lose weight, and sugar cravings are one of the hardest challenges to eating healthy while breastfeeding. Basically, sugar cravings happen when we crave specific nutrients, and as breastfeeding mamas we need more nutrients ,so we tend to have more cravings. This isn’t a bad thing, it just means we need to eat as nutrient-dense as possible. I have some awesome recipes for breastfeeding…

Intermittent fasting is not only perfectly safe while breastfeeding, it can also be a great way to help you lose your baby weight. Intermittent fasting itself will not affect your milk supply. If you properly nourish yourself during your eating window of time, you can really help your body let go of fat, while keeping up a healthy milk supply. I am going to go over what intermittent fasting is, how it is beneficial to losing weight while breastfeeding, and how I specifically practice intermittent fast, so you have a real-life example. I practied intermittent fasting even while breastfeeding, which I believe helped me lose the baby weight, and also out of habit. Once you create the habit, it becomes second nature. What is intermittent fasting in general? Intermittent fasting simply means fasting for about 14-16 hours. Some people practice a longer fast, and some shorter. I personally believe it…

Protein powders are safe while breastfeeding, and they can be a big help in maintaining milk supply while losing the baby weight.

Fiber and protein combined are key to filling satisfied with…

Losing weight while breastfeeding is often times a completely overwhelming task, full of difficulties with postpartum hormones, lack of sleep, a new baby to care for, and intense cravings and hunger while breastfeeding. Breastfeeding changes the game for weight loss in so many ways, what once worked great, may not work as well now. Because hormones change so much, stress goes up, and our sleep goes down, it can seem impossible to focus on losing weight and eating healthy while breastfeeding a new baby. Many mamas lose patience and jump into diets and plans hoping that it will just help them get a little of the weight off. Each day the scale says the same number, or worse, it goes up! If this is happening for you, don’t worry. This is happening to many, many new mamas trying to drop some baby weight while breastfeeding. I know because I created…

Losing the baby weight while breastfeeding is almost as hard as birthing a baby. In fact, it might be even harder to do so because of how long it can take to lose the baby weight while breastfeeding a new baby. Seriously, sometimes the short and fast pain is easier than endurance. As the creator of a very popular weight loss and recovery program for breastfeeding mamas, I get to hear the struggles of various mamas trying to just get on track and lose that stubborn baby weight.
