Hi
My son is 7 weeks born, I need to lose 45 pounds. I was reading about the scarsdale diet and it has a lot of protein and greens, easy to do, no portion limits. Will it be safe? if I'm breastfeeding and wanna keep doing it.

Talk to your doctor.   You need to have a balanced diet so that your breast milk is balanced as well.  Snacking on fresh fruits/veggies instead of junk food is a good option as well.  Lots of water for hydration.

Hi- your son is gorgeous!

I've not heard about the scarsdale diet but I do know that as a BF mom you need to be careful about limiting your intake of food and be careful how much you lose in a week. It's recommended 1-2 lbs/week of weight loss while breastfeeding. My suggestion is to eat very healthy and drink lots of water. Good luck.

Thank you very much, there is not too much information about breastfeeding and meal programs to lose wait. I may have to wait until I'm done breastfeeding my bb to start a diet. Thinking twice Mac is my last baby, so I will have the rest of my life to get in shape......
