16 Tips To Help You Safely Lose Weight While Breastfeeding
Be Careful Of Fad Diets
Remember: you need to be eating a balanced diet in order to maintain a healthy milk supply for your baby. Breastfeeding is not a time to be jumping on the fad diet bandwagon; don’t go on a juice cleanse or start living off cabbage soup now. That being said, many trendy eating habits haven’t really been studied for safety while breastfeeding. Most nutritionists agree that a well-planned vegetarian or vegan diet is perfectly safe, with “well-planned” being the operative term. Keto, the current media darling, has not really been studied yet, but some doctors cautiously say a modified version (with ample carbs) should be safe while nursing. However you choose to eat, just remember to strive for balance and the right mix of nutrients.
