Weight loss supplements can be safe and helpful while breastfeeding. Sometimes breastfeeding causes a road block for weight loss. Herbal, safe supplements can help new mommies let go of the extra weight gained during pregnancy.
Milk Dust is a helper for weight loss because it naturally curbs sugar cravings using vitamins and minerals rather than stimulants. This is the key to safe weight loss supplements. They need to be comprised of specific nutrients, vitamins and minerals that are helpful to both mama and baby.
What makes a weight loss supplement safe for breastfeeding?
There are some very specific requirements for a weight loss supplement to be safe for breastfeeding.
- Comprised of nutrients
- Free of stimulants
- No caffeine
- No synthetic replications of vitamins
- Hormonal support
- Nourishment support
- Cognitive support
A safe weight loss supplement looks at the root of the cause, rather than covering up appetite or hunger. Stimulants like caffeine can cover up hunger, but it doesn’t look at the root cause behind the lack of energy, slow weight loss or nutrient needs. Milk Dust specifically looks at common nutrient needs to help satisfy hunger and balance blood sugar. Cravings often come from your body’s need for a nutrient, cognitive support or even extra carbs to support a tired brain. Many mamas crave sugar while breastfeeding, but what their brain needs are more healthy carbs to function on little sleep.
Nutrient Deficiencies That Slow or Halt Weight Loss While Breastfeeding:
Breastfeeding mamas specifically need more nutrients than non-lactating women, and many nutrients needs don’t change that much after pregnancy. Some of these nutrients include:
- Vitamin B12
- Chromium, Magnesium, Potassium and Sodium
- Fiber (not a nutrient, but essential carbohydrate)
Folate and vitamin B12 can really create some lethargy and lack of motivation to eat healthy. Both of these B vitamins relate to cognitive function, energy, and they are necessary for baby. If these are lacking, your body can’t function they way it should. The same with protein and fiber. Without protein, there can be a lot of ups and down with blood sugar, which causes excessive hunger. Fiber creates a feeling of fullness that makes you want to stop eating. If there isn’t enough fiber, there is a constant hunger or feeling of never getting enough food. This leads to that ravenous, always hunger feeling many breastfeeding mamas experience.
Not all weight loss supplements have this sort of blend in vitamins and nutrients, but Milk Dust has all of this and more. With protein, fiber and essential vitamins and minerals, in addition to galactagogue herbs like Fenugreek, fennel seed, milk thistle and brewer’s yeast, a mother can support her lactation and weight loss at the same time.
How To Know If You Need A Weight Loss Supplement While Nursing:
Not all mamas need a weight loss supplement while nursing. Some just need to count calories and determine their energy needs. Weight loss is all about energy in verses energy out. Of course, not all calories are created equal. This means that 100 calories of cookies verses 100 calories of broccoli are going to be used, processed and metabolized very, very differently. One can leave you feeling super full (broccoli from fiber), and the other starving in 30 minutes.
If you are struggling to eat healthy and manage your breastfeeding hunger, weight loss supplements might be just the answer to give you a jump start.
Here are some signs a weight loss supplement can help your weigh loss after pregnancy:
- Constant hunger
- Intense sugar cravings
- Carbohydrate addiction
- Hunger soon after large meals
- Exhaustion after eating
- Lack of physical energy
- Weight gain while breastfeeding
If you are experiencing any of these issues, safe weight loss supplements are awesome tools to move your body into healthier eating habits. Milk Dust is a breastfeeding weight loss supplement that fully supports nourishment and lactation in new mommies.
