Ask Dr. Mike QnA: How To Lose Weight While Breast Feeding
Today’s question comes from a Facebook Fan. She asks:
What can do for nutritionally as a nursing mom? Sometimes I feel like its not possible to lose weight as a nursing mom because I’m so afraid of losing my milk supply. Any suggestions?
In these situations it is important to focus on metabolism enhancing activities and not metabolism decreasing activities (such as excessive caloric restriction).
In this video I discuss 2 calorie burning keys for losing weight while breast feeding and then how to estimate your calorie needs to elicit weight loss while breast feeding.
