New moms- nursing
Im wondering how I should go about a calorie allowance to lose weight, but still be able to keep up with nursing my daughter. I know breastfeeding accounts for about 600 cals a day. Should I just add those to what Im trying to stay under? Im looking to get down about 40lbs by mid October, but dont want to overdo it in a way that would effect feeding the little one.
Also, my activity is pretty minimal atm. Still recovering from c section. As soon as I get the go ahead Ill be back in the gym, but I think thats another 2-4 weeks away..
