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…

Most new mommies are very eager to lose weight fast once baby arrives, but are worried that if they drop calories or weight too quickly, they will also lose their milk supply.

I can tell you with out a doubt your nutrition and food sources is the fastest way to lose weight while breastfeeding.

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 4 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…

Preparing and making freezer meals as a pregnant or new mama is so helpful for postpartum weight loss! As a 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. Preparing some yummy, healthy freezer meals before the baby arrives can really set you up for success in losing the baby weight, as well as keeping up your milk supply. In our programs, we focus on nutrition as the main priority in maintaining milk supply, which also has the bi-product of helping you lose the baby weight!

I’ve been able to prevent stretchmarks during three pregnancies so far. Preventing stretch marks during pregnancy takes some special attention and care for yourself, so your skin can slowly stretch as the baby grows. I am going to give a full rundown on caring for your belly, so you can hopefully prevent as many stretch marks as possible during your pregnancy. And guess what?! I am now pregnant with my fourth baby, so I am doing all of these things AGAIN! So far, no stretch marks at 24 weeks. Let’s see how we do the rest of the way through! Why do we get stretch marks during pregnancy? Stretchmarks happen during pregnancy because our skin is forced to stretch too far too fast. Because this happens in a way that is difficult for the skin to adjust to, scars form. Basically, the skin stretches so much that it can’t repair…

Now that I am pregnant again with my fourth baby, I will have to be following all these steps when baby arrives this fall. I am so happy I’ve learned what works in healing quickly after a vaginal birth because I will have a newborn and three wild boys to care for. Immediately after vaginal birth, there is a lot of care for your lady bits that may not be expected if this is your first time having a baby. I was clueless to the aftermath, and I wish I researched some proper care techniques before being completely reliant on the nurses to advise me. Three babies later, I’ve had some experience healing and caring for that area. It isn’t fun, but there are some ways you can make things feel better and heal faster. First, Take All The Things From The Hospital: Sure, you can grab some extra squirt…

Smoothies are a great tool for boosting milk supply, as well as giving your body the nutrients it needs to heal and repair after baby. There is so much happening during the 4th trimester, and your body will be so happy you’ve given it all the nutrients it needs! My ebook of postpartum recipes for milk supply and weight loss has more smoothe recipes for you, and I LOVE sharing my smoothies on Instagram. I have found smoothies to be so helpful both during pregnancy and postpartum. I use them as snacks for meal replacements, and as a quick and delicious way to get in a lot of nutrients. I will sometimes be craving all my kids chips, goldfish and macaroni and cheese, but get a smoothie down and feel amazing. And there’s little clean up! Just throw some goodies in a blender and go. As a new mommy, the…

Social distancing has thrown us all into a bit of an unexpected vacation, where we are now in charge of education and entertainment for our children. I am in the same boat.
