For any health advice I give on nutrition and wieghtloss, make sure you check with your doctor, as I am not a health professional. I am just a mama with lots of health and fitness knowledge and experience.
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. Preparing some yummy, healthy freezer meals before baby arrives can really set you up for success in losing the baby weight, as well as keeping up your milk supply. In my program, 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! Focusing on the right foods actually tells your body to use fat to make breast milk!
Highly nutritious foods are going to be the best foods to focus on, and creating some freezer meals with these foods will set you up for success! I have some freezer recipes I’ve created in my program, as well as a full meal plan and grocery lists to get you through 21 days of eating clean and losing the baby weight. These recipes are MY FAVORITES from other bloggers, all are easy to freeze in either single servings or bulk servings, depending on what you need.
You also want to stock up on these lactation bars and protein powder! The lactation bars are a perfect hospital-bag snack, and they will nourish you with the proper nutrients right after birth! They also have milk-boosting herbs in them, which can help you milk come in right away after birth!
Here is your list of freezer meals for postpartum weight loss that will also keep your milk supply running high!

Don’t forget protein shakes!! These are a HUGE part of my postpartum program, and this is the super safe and healthy protein powder I suggest. I LOVE smoothies because you can freeze the ingredients ahead of time in bags, or just throw a few things in a blender quick and easy in the morning!
