JUDDD and nursing

I am back after a while - after getting married I got pregnant rather quickly and here I am weighing much more than before (and extra flabby ) and exclusively breastfeeding my four month old. I was just wondering if breastfeeding and JUDDD could work for weight loss and any other nursing mothers experiences. I am mostly wondering about my milk supply and weight loss. I was thinking do 3 down days of about 1000 calories (M-W-F) and then not count calories the rest of the week.


What do you ladies think?

I saw a specialist who thought it would be fine to do JUDDD during pregnancy, but I haven't a clue about nursing.

I think Vlo might still nurse, but her son is much older, so my advice would be to speak with your doctor.

I can help! I had this question and never found anyone who had done it so I took a chance and started to Juddd while I was still nursing! I can tell you i started when my son was almost a year but still almost exclusively nursing. It did not affect my supply as far as I can tell because he still nursed frequently and seemed satisfied. I'm still nursing him a year and a half later and All the while doing Juddd. So I say go for it, just make sure you drink enough water and you should be fine. Also if you see any decrease in supply I highly recommend that mothers milk tea, works every time! Good luck!

Not medical advice or personal experience, but IMO JUDDD is probably the way we humans ate for millenia before conveniences like canning and refrigeration were invented, and I think we're still very well-adapted to it, even during pregnancy and nursing. Occasionally eating less and fasting for short periods actually help the body heal and reduce inflammation, and are not always the horrible stressors we may have been led to believe.

Even a 100lb-person with professional bodybuilder levels of body fat still has at least 10-15lbs of fat on them. And if each pound holds about 3,000 calories, well, that's plenty to make milk!

I'm sure you know to be mindful of nutrition. Your body will "steal" nutrients from you to make the best milk possible, even if your diet's not great. I lived in a country where it was not uncommon for people to have 5-10 children, and for poorer mothers to have lost teeth during their many consecutive years of pregnancy and nursing, because of insufficient calcium in their diet!

If it makes you feel too weak, tired, or grumpy, you can always try again in a few months when baby starts to eat other foods. The time is going to fly by! Congrats on everything

Thanks ladies for your input!!! Definitely going to do my first DD rather tomorrow or Tuesday. Looking forward to September when there are less parties/commitments so that I can start steady rotations. I love JUDDD and the hunger reducing benefits. Unfortunately, I am one of those ladies where the weight does not just fall off breastfeeding-- instead im gaining eek! Nursing makes me so hungry! Need to watch my food intake forever - and JUDDD makes it so easy!

I'll keep you posted on how it goes!

Did you do it?

Hey, Angie1.....curious if you did it and what happened? I'm thinking about getting started. My baby will be 1 in just a couple of weeks. Might take the plunge soon as I was JUDDD'ing before I got preggers.

Thanks!

Hey I ended up losing about 10 lbs doing around 1000 calories M-W-F and not counting (but being mindful) on other days. Then the holidays came along, and stopped doing rotations and I am back to where I started. November/December gets me every time - especially with the hunger from nursing!

Anyways I am still nursing but not exclusively, LO is eating solids now. Going to start rotations again in February!
