Postpartum Clean Nutrition

Category

Postpartum nutrition is really important. And when I say really, I mean it is something that can make or break your healing, energy levels, milk supply and more. I am super passionate about postpartum nutrition because it is the key to keeping both mama and baby healthy after birth. I’ve been slowly working on starting a movement here at The Postpartum Cure, pushing mamas to learn what good, healing nutrition looks like, and why it is important after birth. The medical community is taking notice, and I am so excited to now be working with doctors and OBGYNS to help provide more resources and care after birth. I personally was handed a sheet of simple exercises to do for healing, and offered whatever I wanted to eat from the hospital menu…that was my experience with postpartum care and healing. If you want even more nutrient advice for postpartum healing and…

Losing the baby weight, or at least some of it by 6 weeks postpartum is entirely possible, and not necessarily super difficult if you make some easy and simple changes to your diet and habits. Working out isn’t really an option before your 6-week check up and clearance (though there are some awesome healing workouts you can do!), but eating a nutrient-dense diet is really important to your milk supply as well as losing weight. As a mom of three boys, I have lost the baby weight 3 times, and being a fitness professional and nutrition coach, I came up with 5 easy steps you can take to lose the baby weight (or at least start losing) by six weeks postpartum. These easy steps for weight loss after baby arrives mostly involve diet, because that is 80% of your weight loss journey. Your breastfeeding diet is also really important to…

Weight watchers is a highly popular weight loss program, that like many, may or may not be the best choice while breastfeeding. As a fitness professional and nutrition coach, I have some thoughts on weight watchers for breastfeeding mamas. If done correctly, weight watchers could be an awesome plan to really help you target that weight loss. If done incorrectly, your milk supply can drop with your weight. Maybe you’ve been trying to lose weight while breastfeeding with all sorts of plans and programs, and you are thinking weight watchers might be a good next try? Well, I will quickly go over what weight watchers is, then how to do it correctly, so you can use it to lose weight without losing your milk supply. How Does Weight Watchers Work? Weight Watchers is a method of counting calories, but simpler because you count points, rather than calories. This means less…

Counting macros for weight loss while breastfeeding can be a very effective way to lose weight, maintain muscle, and completely change your body after baby. I personally do not count macros, and preach a program based on eating clean and learning real hunger and full cues. I believe this is really important for long-term success, BUT a macro plan can provide the structure a new mom needs to stay within her calories, and making the most of those calories. Let’s look at what macro counting is, and how it can be very beneficial for postpartum weight loss while breastfeeding. What is Macro Counting? Counting your macros is a more complex way of counting calories. You start with your daily caloric needs to maintain your weight, then decrease that number to reduce your overall weight. Within that total, let’s say it is 1500 calories, you will eat specific ratios of carbs,…

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…

Eating well while breastfeeding isn’t always easy with cravings, hormonal changes, lack of sleep and a new baby. Breastfeeding nutrition can also seem complicated with the fear of losing milk supply. As a Pre/Post Natal Fitness Specialist and creator of a very unique breastfeeding diet plan that is specifically made for breastfeeding mamas to lose weight, I KNOW eating healthy after baby can be hard. Really hard. But, I created this guide to help you understand how to eat well for both you and your new baby.

By focusing on your nutrient intake at each and every meal and snack, you can ensure you are giving yourself and your baby the most vitamins, minerals and nutrients possible. Of course, conquering…
