  • Try Weight Watchers. The teach you to eat healthy and they have a breast feeding plan that helps you eat right and lose weight while eating all the nutrient you need for breast feeding. Very healthy and not a diet so much as a lifestyle change and good nutrition.

  • Weight Watchers. Only way to go!

    No supplements or crash diets.

  • I would start with simple changes.
    Don’t buy junk food
    Walk, or do other exercise, for at least 20 minutes a day, at least 3 times a week.
    Make sure that you are drinking enough water, at least 8 8oz glasses a day.
    Eat an apple or big pile of veggies before meals.
    Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, in at least 3 different colors.
    Eat 5-6 servings of whole grains a day.
    Eat at least two servings of legumes a day.
    Cut way back on meat and dairy
