"Breast feeding - that's my number one secret," said Nicelle Herrington after losing 25 of the 29 pounds she gained during pregnancy.FACT: Women burn 500 calories a day producing breast milk while breastfeeding.
"I don't believe in diets, I believe in listening to your body and being consistent. If you want a burger, have one, but balance it out the next day by eating salmon and vegetables."

Hiya, I'm really struggling to lose weight after having my second child, who is now 15months old. I gained around 2 stone whilst pregnant, I work out every day and watch what I eat, except for the occassional cheat day, I have lost no weight, and I'm not really toning up. It gets me really down. I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

I gained 40 pounds during my first pregnancy. Took me 9 months to loose it all.the fact is I didnt work out, bfeeding failed which I was extremely sad about. I los it by cutting bad foods.
This time I want to exercise and loose it faster.yoga and pilates is the only thing I can tolerate. Spinning im in love with but its hard with two kids to make it to classes.

I lost weight magically after my first pregnancy, but I only breastfed for a few weeks. I was probably underweight by then, had cracked nipples etc. So all in all gave it up, I had a huge learning curve with a first child and I was exhausted.
However with the second baby, I breastfed for 5 months, it was much easier. But even though I'm naturally slim, the weight stayed on all while I was breastfeeding. My hips, tummy and thighs carried weight which I had never done in my life, a kind of blubber. I suppose it makes sense, you have to have some reserve for the baby. Even at that I got faint a few times, because you have to drink and eat a lot more when you're breastfeeding and obviously I wasn't eating enough for the baby and myself. I have usually a high amount of muscle, so that uses up more calories than more white tissue.
The interesting thing was, when I stopped breastfeeding, it was like a switch went off in my body and the weight fell off within a few weeks. I ate protein rich food, even body builders shakes with whey. This kept my appetite for snacks or fatty food down and I knew when I exercised that I was building lean body mass. What got my waist down was taking calcium, I read that taking calcium or dairy once or twice a day helped reduce belly fat. I also took lots of omega fish oils. My measurements are 36, 27, 39 and I'm 5'10". I would really recommend this type of diet and supplements. Also working out for 12 minutes a day in high impact workouts, REALLY work. Try Zuzka Light youtube workouts and also the bodyrocker channel.
Don't get down, these steps can help you too x

I was 130 before I got pregnant now I'm stuck at 170 (my neighbors force fed me so I gained more than I should've) but I really need a plan to lose this! I just started going to the gym which has helped my depression at least but I'd like the weight off.

I have heard of family and friends one way or another sabotaging diets. You just have to say no. See yourself as the type of person who 'doesn't eat that, or so much, or drink much'. Keep saying it and not only you, but the saboteurs will believe it.
They got around you. Find a way out of that trap. Pass the food onto homeless people, say you'd love it, put it in your freezer in small portions for later. You can take their kindness and use it beneficially. But don't ever overeat out of politeness. Say no.

hi sadia, my name is devorah. i just read your comment. the only advice i give to everyone i meet with weight loss problems, is to work with a diet and exercise program that works for YOU. what might work for someone else might not work for you. i lost a total of 120lbs. i had 5-6 small meals a day, and exercised 3-5 days a week. i changed my routine up everyday, to not fall into a plateau. at the moment i am 7months pregnant with my 1st baby and excited to be a mom! i don't worry anymore about the weight gain because i know what i have accomplished in the past. stay focused and motivated by remembering that everything takes time, and patience. hope this helps. devorah :-)

First of all your website is GREAT and I am recommending it to everyone I know. I have a question I am breastfeeding 1 year old twins and I am intending to continue for another year. I have lost a lot of my pregnancy weight but I was a bit over weight before I was pregnant and I want to start loosing it. I read that breastfeeding burns 500 calories a day. I watch what I eat and make sure I eat the amunt of calories I should to loose weight taking into account the calories I should loose while breastfeeding but I seem to be stuck at my weight. Is it because breasfeeding only burns 500 calories when the babies are only relying on the milk and now they have solids I shouldn't consider that it burns an extra 500 calories a day. Please help me to know what to do to loose weight , I need to loose about 16 pounds. Thank you
