Hi all, I'm currently EBF a 6 month old baby girl. I work full time, I pump twice at work and feed her freely when I'm home.
Ok, so I know that the first phase of IP is too calorie restricted to go full force, like I wish I could, but I need to keep my supply up. And I really need to lose weight, I have been depressed, I definitely need to lose 30 lbs, and I can't wait another 6-18 months until she's weaned herself off. All other diets just don't appeal to me when I KNOW that this one works! (I lost 12 lbs in the beginning of 2013 on IP) And I know it's going to be easy for me to follow!
So. I was thinking about some additions to the diet would be good. I am going to be using alternative products because I can't afford IP products
This is what my plan might look like along with the normal P1 diet:
- 4 total "packets" a day - 1 restricted every day
- 1 extra serving of carbs
- 2 servings of dairy
I would also be working out, trying to sweat a little each day..
I would also be taking some vitamins and herbal supplements that will help in maintaining my milk supply.
What do you think?
