  • Breastfeeding- anyone else in my boat?

    I'm new to this forum, but not to Primal lifestyle. I have some lbs to loose and hope eliminating grains and keeping my carbs LOW will help me get back to where I want to be without comprising quality/quantity of breast milk.
    Anyone go primal while breastfeeding? What was your experience?

    I am breastfeeding my 11 month old. She still feeds 8+ times a day. I've been primal for 2 months now and we're still feeding well. Early on I had a problem where my hunger diminished to the point where I wasn't eating enough and my supply was affected. That was easily remedied by eating more though

    I've lost on average nearly 2 pounds a week but my weight loss is slowing down to around 1 pound a week now. I eat nuts, dairy, lots of meat and fat. It amazes me just how much I eat and still lose weight effortlessly.

      This is so encouraging to hear! I'm really hopeful that this will help me drop some weight. Any idea how many grams of carbs you eat in a day? And how much were you eating when your supply was affected?
