Breastfeeding/dietin: You shuld eat healthy nutritious diet, high in vegetables and protein, avoid fatty foods and exercise daily. Try to get enough sleep as well so your body does not produce more cortisol inducing more weight gain or difficulty gaining weight.

Not enough fluids: I suspect your fluid intake might be lagging just a bit. When breastfeeding, you need to be drinking over 100 ounces of fluid a day. If you are a little on the dry side yourself, your milk supply may be just fine, but you yourself could be feeling the effects with a little dizzy or nausea. ...Read more

Im breastfeeding and wondering if its ok if i take sensa i can't loose I've starting counting calories but its hard for me to stay on a diet. With sensa you just sprinkle it on your food.

There : There are no clear safety data on sensa in pregnancy because it is a supplement not strictly regulated by the fda. There is also no evidence from rigorous clinical trials that this product does anything besides lightening your wallet. In short, it is, i think, bogus and of no value for weight loss. See these web page below for some websites and info that may be of help in guiding your weight loss. ...Read more

What weight should I be calculator if breastfeeding?

Use BMI calculator: Google up the bmi calculator, or "body mass indicator." this is based on your height and weight only. I always found that nursing mothers lost about five pounds when they stopped nursing. So using the bmi calculator should still be reasonable. You have to remember that you require more fluids and calorie intake to make milk for a hungry baby. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Breast feeding : You need about 2500 to 3000 calories per day to sustain breast feeding. Drinking fluid is important, but if you don't get in adequate calories you won't maintain your milk supply. This comes to 3 good meals and at least 2 smacks per day. ...Read more

Is it advisable to be on low calorie diet while breastfeeding?

No: Breastfeeding requires many nutrients & burns a lot of calories. In order to produce an adequate supply of milk the body needs a good supply of nutrients & energy. Instead of counting calories new moms should focus on consuming a balanced diet rich in whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, and lean meats. An extra 500 calories/day over typical requirements is recommended during breastfeeding. ...Read more
