Protein powders are safe while breastfeeding, and they can be a big help in maintaining milk supply while losing the baby weight. I put together a list of the top 8 protein powders I’ve found for breastfeeding mamas, which are clean, safe, and full of amazing nutrients that will benefit your breast milk supply, as well as nourish your body and help you lose weight. I personally LOVE a protein shake, and protein shakes made with high-quality protein powders are a major part of my breastfeeding diet plan for postpartum mamas because of all the nutrients you can jam pack into a blender, and drink. Because you can get a lot of nutrients in at once, you are giving your body the building blocks it needs to create breast milk, as well as filling yourself up with fiber and protein. 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…

Preparing and making freezer meals as a pregnant or new mama is so helpful for postpartum weight loss! As new baby arrives, things get hectic. Life happens, family visits, nights turn into days, and before you know it, you’ve been eating Cheetos and Eggo waffles for a week.

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. One of the biggest hurdles in losing the baby weight while breastfeeding is just starting somewhere! After asking hundreds of mamas how I can further help them in my program, this was the number one issue. Not the program itself, but just getting started! That’s why I added an in-depth 5-day jump start for my program specifically, which I will soon turn…

There are some amazing lactation snack recipes and creations, but not all of them are healthy and promote losing the baby weight. Seriously, some of them are basically super rich and gooey bars and cookies, with a dash of flaxseed and brewers yeast. Now, there’s nothing wrong with a nice, milk boosting treat, but for a daily snack, these might not be the best choice if you want to lose some of the baby weight. So, I’ve rounded up the healthiest lactation snack ideas out there, so you can have your snack, and make your milk too! Remember, the most important decision you can make postpartum is to infuse your body with nutrient-dense foods. I go over all of this in my program, which not only teaches you how to nourish your body for breastfeeding, but we also go over supplements to keep your supply up, how to strengthen your…

Food is a powerful tool when it comes to milk supply and weight loss. There are some powerful foods that help you increase your milk supply, while also helping you lose the baby weight. That is the amazing magic of nutrition. Nourishing your body postpartum is what my program is centered around because food is so accessible and what your body needs to function properly. Your body wants to let go of the stored fat to produce milk, but if it doesn’t have the nutrients to do so, it will want to hold on to that fat. If you are looking for a more in-depth plan that goes over healing postpartum, properly nourishing your body for milk supply, a meal plan and recipes and workouts to lose the baby weight, please check out my new program,┬áThe Postpartum Cure. So many mamas are having tons of success with just the little…

Lactation smoothies are one of the best tools for losing the baby weight while breastfeeding because you can blend up some awesome ingredients to boost your supply, while also helping you lose the baby weight. Green lactation shakes don’t always taste good because of the greens…but this one is super yummy. They key to a green smoothie is a really good vanilla protein powder, and frozen, sweet fruit. Rather than ice, I like frozen pineapple the best because it makes the sweetest taste, and it also blends up smooth. The protein powder (this one is super clean and safe for breastfeeding mamas), helps keep it creamy, gives you the protein you need and offers a sweet vanilla taste. Spinach is a big deal for breastfeeding mamas and milk supply, and you can read more about that in this post. I love hiding spinach in smoothies because I don’t like it…
