Did your appetite return to normal after breastfeeding?

I have either been pregnant or breastfeeding (or both) for the last 4 years. My appetite has massively increased and I'm two stone over my ideal weight. To be fair with what I can eat I'm lucky I'm only two stone over blush. For those that breastfed when you stopped did you appetite decrease/return to normal or did you find you had become use to eating so much?
I am trying to cut down now not just waiting until I stop bf. However I often end up really hungry and eating even more. So any tips for getting a better diet whilst still bf would also be helpful. TIA

Tbh, i found that after the first month or so, once supply was established, my appetite went back to normal. I stopped bf when DD was 1yr and didn't notice a change. I have always been able to eat an insane amount though.
