In brief: Nursing and diet

Be careful while dieting and nursing because it could decrease your milk supply.
Eat healthy, well-balanced meals. Half or what you eat should be veggies and fruit. Also eat lean proteins like chicken, pork, beans, lentils, and nuts. Carbs should be whole grain, and about a fist-full at each meal. What you eat flavors your milk and helps develops your baby's taste so eat what you want baby to eat.

When breastfeeding, you need about 600 more calories a day above your normal intake.
