What's Normal?

Losing weight after you've had a baby is not the same as dieting just because you're overweight: New moms are sleep deprived, crunched for time, and caring not just for themselves, but for an infant, as well. "Your body goes through a lot, so you shouldn't start any crazy dieting or restricting calories for at least six weeks," says DeFazio. Moms who are breastfeeding need around 1800 calories a day, she adds (otherwise your body will start producing toxins that can get into your breast milk), while most commercial diet plans limit you to between 1000 and 1500.
