Breastfeeding and Slim Fast?

I am nursing my 8 mo old and was curious about using ONE shake a day for 5 days a week. I think i should wait until dd is a year, but im tired of being fat. what do you think? (Im leaning toward waiting though....)



*edit* i dont eat junk food and have been limiting my diet but its just not working.

  • Slim fast has chromium picolinate in it! You are feeding it to baby! Chromium makes it difficult to gain weight. No way woul I use that while breastfeeding.

  • i wouldn't do that. just try to limit junk food and carbs, i dont know why i'm telling you this. it depends on the type of person you are. personally, i could never lose an ounce until i weaned both my kids. then the weight would just fall off and i can actually have willpower. lost all the baby weight after both :)

  • Do not use a weight loss supplement while breastfeeding. It isn't good for you or for the baby. Wait until you have weaned the baby and then work on a plan to reduce your portions, exercise daily, and be sensible (slimfast isn't sensible).

  • Slim Fast isn't unsafe, unless baby has dairy issues. It's also ineffective for weight loss, however. Weight Watchers.
