The Breastfeeding Diet

By: Editors of FaveHealthyRecipes


The Breastfeeding Diet is a serious of recommendations created by to help new and lactating mothers to lose weight after pregnancy.

What it is: Published at, the Breastfeeding Diet encourages new mothers to breastfeed as the basis of weight loss after the weight gain associated with pregnancy, instead of restrictive diet plans. The eating plan avoids certain foods which may affect the baby and encourages certain foods which are healthy and especially good for lactating mothers.

How it works: As new mothers produce milk to feed their babies, 500 extra calories are burned a day, which helps to shed pounds. The eating plan simply recommends healthy foods to support this weight loss.

What you do: To support healthy breast-feeding, lactating mothers eat complex carbs, vegetables and proteins. The diet should be high in dietary fiber, to help new mothers avoid the common complaint of constipation, calcium, which is often depleted, and Vitamin D, generally assured through multivitamin supplements. According to this source, lactating mother should avoid caffeinated drinks, nuts, seeds and fatty fish like salmon.

Benefits: The information on this diet is freely available at Most of the information is medically-sound, supported by health experts, and establishes good nutrition for mother AND baby.

Downside: Some of the terms used in the diet are confusing, such as “albuminous foods,” which means foods with egg whites. Also, exercise is not addressed in this diet.
