    I lost my baby weight both times by controlling portion sizes and cutting junk. If I restrict myself too much I end up going on a junk food bender, so focused more on potion sizes and eating whole unprocessed foods most of the time with a treat a few times a week.

    When losing my weight I generally had a smoothie for breakfast, green soup & rye bread or ham & salad wrap for lunch, a small portion of whatever we were having for dinner and snacks were natural greek yogurt/ nuts/ crackers & cheese/ homemade protein balls/ boiled egg with hommus/ veg sticks with hommus. I also don't do low fat anything - whole milk, cheese, yogurt etc. I'm more wary of added sugar than I am fat, and I lost weight fine eating whole fat foods.

    This is a good post on why restricting your food intake while breast feeding is a bad idea. Hope it's ok to post but I think it's very important massage that the diet industry have overtaken us on.

    I hear where you're coming from but it's actually been a year since I had my bub so I gave myself plenty of time to focus just on my baby, now it's time to get myself feeling good and back in shape.

    I've been making green smoothies to get fruit and veg and filling up with high protein, low calorie food like egg white omelettes (with veggies) and chicken/turkey breast or tuna. I snack on carrots, edamame and miso soup. I think getting a good hit of protein really keeps the hunger at bay.

    I find counting calories really helps. I try to stick to 1200 a day when losing weight. I find the weekends are the hardest. Oh and I try to exercise (moderately hard) for 45mins a day 5 times a week.

    Good luck!
