Breastfeeding And Weight Loss
Many Moms lost their attractive physique just after their pregnancy. Some desperate moms began to look for options to lose weight after pregnancy and are ready to attempt any kind of approach they found.

However, they may not be conscious of a few of these solutions – like pills or fad diets - may result in unwanted effects for them and even more importantly their own child, especially if they’re breastfeeding. 

The outcome on their infant could possibly be hazardous as newborn baby’s immunity is still fragile. Most of us don’t know what impact of those weight loss solutions may bring to our babies. Consequently, please feel of the infant’s privilege before you try something that does not good for your baby. Subsequent, what is the relation between breastfeeding and weight loss? Does breastfeeding help you lose weight?

The answer is YES! It’s also one of the organic and safe methods for you and your baby to lose weight following pregnancy.

A U.S. study shows that breastfeeding and weight loss are related. University of Georgia researchers Dawn McDougald, Alex Anderson and Irene Hatsu investigated the effects of infant feeding mode on maternal body composition. They measured the weight and changes in body fat among 24 mothers who were 19 to 42 years old. Results confirmed that mothers who are breastfeeding their babies lost the most weight [Tweet This], probably due to breastfeeding's high energy cost.

The breast milk production is assisted with the body fat you stored. Remarkably, you need to use up 300-500 calories every day which is dependent how breast milk you’ll get for the infant. 300 to 500 calories is about worth one to two hours of continuous cardio workout programs.

There’s significant proof that breastfeeding will help you lose weight. However, there is another critical part we have to discuss, it’s about your diet. Everything you consume enters your bloodstream which in turn will be a part of your breast milk. You have to be very careful about choosing your diet in order to not affecting your baby health. A mother on a healthy diet gives a good quality food for their infant.

Remember that your body will need plenty of energy, so don’t cut your carbs! Your body requires the energy to produce the breast milk effectively. Balance your meals adequately with all of your food groups.

Talk to a nutritionist or dietitian if you would like assistance with your diet or get this kindle edition of this book named:  

Mother Food: A Breastfeeding Diet Guide with Lactogenic Foods and Herbs

Mother Food: A Breastfeeding Diet Guide with Lactogenic Foods and Herbs

I have not read this book but I have well searched and it seems the best book about breastfeeding and weight loss on the market. Also, I have read many reviews about it and it looks very helpful.
For example, this is one of the reviews:

I will not refer you to search "healthy diet while breastfeeding" on the web because there are many articles talking about this subject and it’s difficult to find the good ones. Especially when you are talking about the health of your baby and how your diet can affect it. That's why I recommend you to get the book (you can search for others but I don’t think that you will find a better one) or simply talk to a nutritionist.
