  • I wouldn't think that is wise while you are breastfeeding.

  • no, your body needs a certain amount of calories when you breastfeed. like 500 more than the daily recommend value i think. so if you're not getting enough calories and your baby takes what little you do, you will quickly become dehydrated. just stick to a normal diet of lean proteins, less fat milks and other dairys, fruits & veggies and exercise.

  • No. Eating healthy and exercising will help you lose plenty of weight. Breastfeeding burns 500 calories a day.
