Can Breastfeeding Mothers Do This Slimming Diet

Scientific evidence overwhelmingly indicates that breastfeeding confers significant health benefits to mother and child and is the ideal method for feeding and nurturing infants. Breastfeeding also provides health benefits for the mother. It assists the uterus in returning to its pre-pregnancy size and reduces postpartum bleeding, as well as assisting the mother in returning to her pre-pregnancy weight.

With that being said, we are often asked if the Slimming Program diet is safe if a woman is planning on or is currently breastfeeding. In response, we advise the following:

Homeopathic Drops vs HCG Injections:

Breastfeeding moms can use the homeopathic drops but NOT the HCG injections. We do offer an adjusted eating protocol to suit breastfeeding moms by advising that they skip Phase 1 (detox) as the calories are simply too low in this phase. Another reason we do not advise breastfeeding Mums to do Phase 1 is because the body will be releasing toxins and impurities during this time.

Do not consider:

If a breastfeeding mother is struggling with milk supply, then it is NOT recommended to do the diet until she has stopped breastfeeding.

It is always advised that a Breastfeeding consult with the Dr before starting any new diet/ exercise program.
