Hey New Mama!

As a Mama myself, I understand the unique challenges facing you coming into this, particularly if you’re still breast feeding! So here is some additional information just for you, to help you tackle the coming weeks!

The first two days are basically a raw food detox with minimal protein and very low calorie and wouldn’t be appropriate.

I’d like you guys to modify by adding protein and a healthy starch (like 1/2 a sweet potato and a healthy fat (like 1/4 avocado or 1/4 cup nuts or 1tsp oil ) to the prescribed meals (lunch and dinner.

The breakfast smoothie is all good. Make sure you buy a good brand protein powder with no artificial sweeteners etc.. Vega is my favourite and I know it’s safe for nursing mums)

You will also have to be extra careful to drink TONS of water and pay close attention to actual hunger cues vs mindless or habitual eating because I don’t want you to ignore real hunger cues.  Unfortunately, for many of us it takes a while to know the difference.

After the first two days, I don’t see any problems for breastfeeding mothers, but you know your body/energy levels best, so it’s up to you to self-monitor!

Another thing to keep in mind is that exercise (usually intense exercise, so not so much a long walks) can temporarily decrease milk supply for an hour or two after but then it should sort of ‘release’.

So pay attention to your timing and keep me posted in group if you experience any issues!
