Some : Breast feeding is estimated to require an extra 300-500 calories a day which is bit more than needed by pregnancy. However you should not limit your intake too much since the amount of breast milk may decrease if you eat too little. However if you eat for a normal healthy adult you might lose about a pound a week.
