in 1800-2200 calories a day you can produce an adequate milk supply (Bonyata). If you are going to limit your calories you need to do it slowly and make sure you are not losing more then 1.1 lbs. a week (Lauwers). To reduce calories I would suggest that the mother changes her eating habits including doing meal prepping with a balanced protein, fruits and vegetables so that healthy snacks and meals are readily available. A low carbohydrate diet is good choice this will lead the patient to reduce or eliminate junk foods and empty calories as well as sugar, flour, breads, potatoes and rice this diet also decreases appetite (Lauwers). b) Discuss 2 practical ways (hood advice) for a breastfeeding mother to get exercise . 03/15 CLEC

UCSD Lactation Educator Program Nutrition Assignment Two practical ways for a breastfeeding mother to get exercise is to just simply parking farther away or doing the stairs instead of taking the elevator. Another way would be joining a group such as stroller strides which is a stroller workout group where the mother would be able to workout with the infant present (Lauwer). c) Discuss Weight Watchers AND at least 1 other commercial or advertised breastfeeding diet plan … Please reference your answers Weight watchers works on a point system where foods are assigned points based on calories and you are allowed a certain number of points to achieve weight loss. Their program for breastfeeding mothers includes points plus to take into account they are lactating. It also follows the Good Health Guidelines and makes their recommendations based on those. Jenny Craig is a meal plan where the food is prepared and ready to eat for a new mom this might be more enticing as they are busy with an infant. This plan is expensive though so it may be a financial burden on a growing family. d) Discuss breastfeeding and vegetarian diets. Be sure to include the vitamin a breastfeeding mother must have in her diet … Please reference your answers A balanced vegetarian diet is fine but for vegans it is hard to find vitamin B12 since it is found in animal sources. Mothers who are vegetarians need to be cognizant of their protein intake and make sure they are eating enough to cover all of the vitamins and minerals needs for themselves as well as the infant. A multivitamin can assist with this. Bonyata, K. (2017, June 3) Do breastfeeding mothers need extra calories or fluids?

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
