Hi I need to lose weight -around 3 stone. I have PCOS which means I have a weird relationship with sugar. Prior to concieving the baby I was on metformin which made weight loss easier. Im not taking it at the moment as I am breastfeeding and the doc didnt think I could. Can anyone reccommend a good diet/eating plan that takes into account the sugar in foods? Thanks
Should point out though that it's not usually recommended to do any type of weight loss diet while you're breastfeeding, afaik, just in case you reduce the number of nutrients available to you, because your BM will get first pick of them.
The Collette Harris diet book is fab, I managed to conceive without metformin/clomid despite not have periods for ages, ovulated within a few weeks of starting on diet.
Its a very healthy sensible low GI plan, would be perfect for breastfeeding.
re: thumbwich's comment, many people when breastfeeding eat empty calories, like chocolate, at least on Colette Harris's diet every calorie you eat would contribute toward nutrition of you and your baby.
