    Well done FNM - yes the first huge losses are 'right': what is happening is that all the extra water that the carbs make you retain is lost because you've cut the carbs right out. Are you drinking lots of water too? more than 1.5l per day is a must.
    Protein - LOTS. I never worked out how much, and I don't know the figures either (nor where to find them) but it's kind of 'so many grams per your current weight' - it's calculated in pure protein and different protein-rich foods have different amounts, for example egg whites most, then meat, then dairy. I just ate lots, that could mean two chicken breasts etc. I usually averaged at least 2 eggs per day too - one used in my galette 'bread' and at least one elsewhere. If you're worried about the cholesterol you can leave out the yolks (make a rich omelette for your little one!)
    But well done so far! Losses will slow down after a couple of days or when you start having some veg on Cruise.

    Is there a section in the book for nursing? You might have to have some extras (I didnt read it).
    Tiredness is usual during the first week, often followed by a burst of energy.

    Yes as your not exclusively BFing anymore you're probably okay, and not really depriving your baby either if the diet affects your supply, but do be careful. I did see something *somewhere* about 'special cases' such as pregnancy / post pregnancy / menopause. Possibly in the book will try to check if I remember tonight.

    Tiredness is more likely due to attack phase so take it easy, energy should be back up soon!

    Hang on... is this the first we've heard about breast feeding?

    This diet is not appropriate for ladies who are breast feeding.

    If you must, then it's the CONSOLIDATION you need to do.

    aaaaah

    p.256 of the book...
    ". Breastfeeding. However much weight you have put on, at this stage it is inconceivable to follow an overly strict diet that would affect th enewborn baby's nutrition.

    I recommend eating as if you were simply managing your weight during a normal pregnancy, following the consolidation diet made easier by:
    - having two portions of fruit per day instead of one
    - using semi skimmed (less than 2% fat) milk and milk products instead of skimmed 0% fat products
    - leaving out protein Thursdays".


    Please please stop and wait for the book to read up on Consolidation.

    thanks for that Jo, didn't get round to mine

    However this is BFing at 14months so really it's not so terribly crucial for the baby any more who (should) be getting nearly all his nutrition from 'solid' food now. the diet is definitely NOT suitable for people breastfeeding newborns and you should wait until they are weaned (ie getting most of their nutrition from other sources). But I think FNM little one is just feeding for comfort now?

    Anyway that's my 2p - I BF'd exclusively to about 8 months and definitely was not even thinking of diets then - but lost several kilos without trying. After that *my* kids rapidly lost interest and realised it was less work to get your food and drink elsewhere!!

    Ditto the conso!

    I would also PV each day and eat as much (non-0%) dairy as you can stomach (don't overdo the cheese though - that's what got me here;)) as if you aren't getting enough calcium, your reserves in your bones will be used to make milk for your baby.

    My youngest fed until 18 months and I couldn't lose weight with him, however with my eldest, it dropped off whatever I ate (I went down to 60 kilos which is the lightest I'd ever weighed as an adult - weight went back on after though:p). Hormones are funny things, I wouldn't expect too much in the way of weight-loss just in case your body is hanging on to it all for your milk supply.

    Good luck!:)
