16 Tips To Help You Safely Lose Weight While Breastfeeding
When your body needs to make milk to nourish your little one, it’s absolutely vital that you make sure you consume the healthiest possible diet yourself. To that end, follow the advice of pretty much every doctor everywhere and be sure you’re eating plenty of plant foods. While a well-rounded vegetarian or vegan diet can be perfectly healthy while breastfeeding (and can, in of itself, aid the weight loss process), don’t think that you necessarily need to go that route if it doesn’t otherwise feel right to you. But plant foods are important sources of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber, not to mention complex carbs, healthy fats, and protein. And too many people simply don’t eat enough of them. Bulk out your post-baby diet with plants and reap the rewards.
