View Full Version : Minimum number of calories when breastfeeding?

10-12-2007, 02:42 PM
So, my wife is wanting to cut to get rid of the rest of her baby weight. She has been breastfeeding exclusively and is concerned that if she gets too few calories, it will adversely impact her milk supply and our son. He's 5 months old.
I know on weight watchers she normally gets 20 points, but is limited to a minimum of 34 while breastfeeding. So, how much is a safe amount for a cut? Or, if she can't really get a caloric deficit and cut, what number should she shoot for to maintain? She's 5'4", about 128. Thanks!

She should not be cutting while breastfeeding.
