Our expert says:
I am not acquainted with this so-called Max Planck diet, but I do know that the German Institute with the name of Max Planck has never devised a slimming diet. It is not recommended that you use any diet that is either very low in energy (less than 1500 cal or 6300 kJ/day) or unbalanced while breastfeeding as this can lead to deficiencies in mother and child. Rather eat a sensible, balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, low-fat milk and dairy products (at least 4 servings a day to provide the calcium you and baby need at this stage), wholegrain and high-fibre cereals, lean meat, fish (at least 3 times a week for omega-3), eggs (use the omega-3 enriched eggs), legumes and 3 tablespoons of monounsaturated margarine or olive oil a day (this means you will be cutting back on fat intake and not eating any high-fat foods, which will in turn reduce your energy intake without causing deficiencies of vital nutrients. Also start being more active - take baby for a walk every day for at least 30 min.
