Depends: Generally, if you are exclusively breastfeeding a single baby (not using any solids or formula), you need about 300 to 500 extra calories beyond what you ate prior to pregnancy. It's more important to eat to satisfy hunger than watch calories. Avoid eating for stress or fatigue.

How many extra calories does the Atkins diet burn? I know that fat is burned instead of carbs on the Atkins diet, but how does that change the amount of calories burned?

Less calories: The important thing about the atkins diet is that you eat very little carbohydrate. As a result you eat more fat. For most people, fat is more satisfying in terms of feeling full than carbs. As a result you eat fewer calories overall and lose weight. Also, when fat is burned it produces ketones. These suppress your appetite as well. The amount of calories burned depends on your activity. ...Read more

I wish to stop breastfeeding-my baby is 5dayd old and has been having formula top up for low blood sugar. Do I just stop or need to ween off the pump?

Breast feeding: I am sorry that you want to stop nursing; it is so good for both baby and you. If you continue to pump, your body thinks it is still nursing. You can try pumping less and less each time, but it takes longer. Stopping, although uncomfortable, is the only way. ...Read more

You: You need to increase your overall calorie count and the protein you are taking. I would not recommend pills or special shakes as the ingredients might not be approved for breastfeeding. Regular milkshakes would be fine. Try to increase the amount of red meat, dairy products, and healthy foods in your diet. If your weight continues to decrease please have a medical evaluation to be sure you don't have a condition that is causing your weight loss. ...Read more
