Remember, if you are a nursing mom, you need to keep your calorie intake up to ensure your milk supply. You need one quarter more calories than you were consuming pre-pregnancy. You should not lose more than two pounds a week as a nursing mom. Check with your doctor before starting any weight loss program.


Note: This meal plan is based on an approximate 1,500-calorie diet. Every woman is different, therefore you should adjust this plan as you see fit. If you are losing too quickly, add a few snacks or pieces of fruit; if you are not losing, cut back a bit each day, starting with the grains.
