How can I lose weight while full time nursing my 4 month old? I'm always starving at night and end up eating more than I ate all day.
What's a good diet for a nursing mother? I gained over yontif and want to lose that plus baby weight...
Thanks.

I found I just couldn't lose weight while nursing but the pounds started melting off without changing anything once I weaned

I also cannot lose weight while nursing no matter what I do. Make a normal effort to eat healthy. If the pounds come off that way, great, if not, hold off on weight loss till after you wean (just be careful not to gain).

I always thought that I can't lose weight while nursing because of the mini pill or nuvaring. This time I have a copper IUD so I really want to try.
Any daily food intake suggestions?

I also really want to lose weight I feel so big after yom tov and really want to feel good and look good(obviously). I’m nursing a 7 month baby and have a copper iud so feel that I’m ready to go for it!
I’m looking for a plan that is simple to follow I don’t do well with weighing food etc..
Any ideas? Also I do get hungry pretty often so not sure if should do 3 proper meals or more smaller ones.
Also any good healthy recipes I can make?

OP, night is the WORST time to eat. Do you have any idea how many calories you are eating in a day? Do you eat healthy and balanced? It could be that you are not eating enough, or not getting the needed nutrients, which is why you end up starving and eating a lot at night. It would be better to eat more in the morning and afternoon.

Just stay off of flour and sugar...this is what I am doing for the last 5 plus years bh and keeping it off..lost 50 pounds, the easiest way to go about it is by joining a support group, but it depends how desperate and determined you r

Weight loss is super hard for me when I'm nursing

I only nurse for 6-7 months- I just don't love nursing enough to continue beyond that point

Once I wean, it's like my metabolism snaps back into normalcy, and things get a lot easier in terms of weight maintenance

Also I'm basically always hungry when I'm nursing

So that doesn't help the goal of weight loss

Once I wean, my appetite shrinks a ton

I don't have a big appetite at all except when pregnant/nursing

Try drinking more? You might be feeling hungry when you’re really just thirsty.

Snack on veggies. Prep them in advance. Eat every 3 hours. Not more than that. Drink inbtwn. If u r still hungry after one serving allow yourself unlimited veggies to fill up. Sip hot water after.eachmeal. Esp shabbos. One or two thin slices of challah only each meal. Don't grazd btwn courses. Pour everything you would expect to eat (mult servings in front of you and see if you rly think it's too much allow your mind to decide beforehand. Write it down. Be accountable to yourself. Don't fat talk. Exercise 30 minutes a day with your heart pumping fast. Hatzlocho!!
