While exclusively breastfeeding? My son is going to be born in October, and after I recover from my c-section I am going to kick butt to get my baby weight off of me. And was wondering how many calorie I will be required to have a day. Thank you in advance (;

The number of calories your body needs to function. It's based on your age, weight & height. The ladies in the healthy living group are great & will figure it for you!

Good luck kicking anything. Is this your first c section? It's going to take a while to recover

No it's my second c-section, it should take about 2-3 months before I can start kicking my butt into gear, but wanna get on the eating part of it beforehand

The flat number is considered to be 1800 per day. Nine months on, nine months off.

Excellent!

The nine months is what you can expect to need to lose the baby weight.
