This can be a demanding time and as a valued member of our program, we are here to support you in as many ways as possible! In addition to being empowered with an eating plan and food lists, you will also gain nutritional support in the form of breastfeeding supplements to maximise the health of your body and that of your baby.
Breastfeeding has many benefits, because a mother’s breast milk is full of antibodies that assist baby to overcome bacterial infections and viruses.
To participate in the Breastfeeding Diet, we require your General Practitioner’s medical certificate sign off.
Our Breastfeeding Diet program will not only help you safely shed the baby weight during the breastfeeding period, but also assist in reshaping your stomach, hips and thighs, mainly due to the fact the eating plan and recommended foods lists are specifically designed to help you shed the adipose tissue fat and at the same time maintain an adequate milk supply.
The program provides you with invaluable tools to help with losing that baby weight. These include a BMR Calculator to work out your recommended total daily calorie intake based on your personal attributes such as your age, height, weight, activity levels and desired goal weight. There is also a BMI Calculator, which will help you work out your BMI based on your current height and how much you weigh.
To assist in staying on track you will be guided on how to set up your recording systems, such as before and after photographs and daily progress charts. These will assist you in achieving the very best breastfeeding weight-loss possible. Here we must stipulate how important it is to check in daily with your dedicated coach for monitoring purposes. And for those wishing that extra support we have provided a private Facebook group you are welcome to join, where likeminded people undertaking our various programs share knowledge, plus offer support and motivation as you progress along your weight-loss journey.
There are a variety of things you can do in order to increase milk supply. These may include:
Our Breastfeeding Diet plan includes a list of recommended nutrient dense breastfeeding foods and whole foods designed to increase your milk during the weight-loss period of removing that baby weight. These, along with our Calorie Calculator, will make it easier to eat the right type and amount of foods to increase milk supply, and supply your body with the required amounts of breastfeeding calories and nutrients.
There are certain types of food which are best to avoid when breastfeeding and other food types which should be restricted. Below are a few recommendations, but if you are ever in doubt be sure to consult your family doctor for more guidance.
For example, alcohol and caffeine while breastfeeding are two of the most important things to avoid, as they can have adverse effects on some babies.
Other common foods that mothers say babies tend to object to include:
"Here it goes. Round 2 for me starts today. 1st Round I lost 5.6Kg. Aim to lose another 4.4kg."
"I have done my first 40 days and lost 15.9kgs! I started my 2nd round of detox yesterday and another 1.3kgs has gone already."
"I can’t believe it! 10.9kg down & and 35cm off my whole-body day. I'm 40 today and I am so excited!"
"Extremely pleased with the results of this weight loss program, after 16 weeks i have lost 25.5Kg and 77cm, which has resulted in me dropping 2 jean sizes. 4.5Kg to go!!"
"Well my hubbie was jumping around like a lunatic this morning. He is under 100Kg the first time in 15 years. A total combined family (3) weight loss of 30Kg in 55 days."
The Balance Program usually lasts for 5 days and during this time you can expect an increase in your overall vitality and health. If you have had a particularly poor diet (high in carbohydrates, sugar and gluten), then you may want to extend this to 7 days. During this time, it is extremely important to follow the food list strictly with no calorie counting and to drink 3 litres of water daily.
This step is undertaken until you achieve your weight goal. There are lots of easy to maintain healthy meal choices to ensure you keep the weight off – for life.
