Anyone nursing and dieting??

I've got a 5 month old baby, and I'd like to drop those last 10 lbs, but I'm afraid to diet because I don't want to hurt my milk supply.


Any other nursing moms trying to slim down???

I lost all my weight, but my body defintely looks waaaaayyy different! Im not dieting, I just cant do it - for one because I hate limiting myself, and Im way too paranoid about my milk supply. I just up the workouts and try to make healthy choices. Ive found that drinking a big glass of water before I eat helps me feel fuller and I dont eat as much.

I like to use the site myfitnesspal.com to log my calories. By doing some searches I just found out that you can add "Breast feeding, 1 day" into your meals, and it automatically adds 500 calories to your daily allowance.


Makes me feel more comfortable tracking because it automatically gives me the extra calories into my daily intake, so hopefully my supply won't be hurt!
