Healthy 6 Week Postpartum Diet Plan for Breastfeeding

June 15, 2016

I cannot believe it has been a month since I had my little girl! I have been asked for the last few weeks to share what I’ve been eating during this time while I cannot lift weights and hit the gym hard so I decided to do a post on my postpartum diet plan with you all.

Since I am still recovering slightly, I have been focusing on clean eating and the results have been amazing. In the first two weeks, I dropped all of my baby weight.

At one month postpartum, my body is still soft and not what it used to be, but with time I will be back in the grind! I have been eating 5 meals per day-sometimes 6-consisting of 3 main meals and 2-3 snacks. I am breastfeeding two kids so sometimes I need that extra bedtime snack! HA!

The diet plan that I am currently on is my Eat Clean, Get Lean 4 week meal plan which is safe and friendly for breastfeeding mommies. It comes with nutrition tips as well as complete and separate grocery lists for each week! I literally take out all of the planning for you to make it stress-free and easy to eat clean.

I will share with you a two-day sample from the plan and what I have been eating for almost 6 weeks now:

This is the gist of the meal plan! As you can see, the recipes are very simple and highly easy and affordable to follow-no weird ingredients or foods that you have to travel to a whole foods store to grab. I have used this very same meal plan following the birth of my first baby and it is tried and true! I hope you all enjoy it and if you like it, try the complete 4 week meal plan.
