Our expert says:
If you do breastfeed then this should help with the weight loss to a certain extent. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘The right approach' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing some regular exercise. Please add 2 cups of fat-free milk to the diet to ensure that you and your baby get sufficient calcium. Try going for a brisk walk (with baby in a pram or strapped to your back) every day for 30 minutes to increase your exercise level.
