No starving allowed on this monthlong meal plan especially for new moms by our own American Baby nutritionist.

As you scan this diet, we hope you notice that there's quite a lot of food. When you eat lean protein, fruits and vegetables, and whole grains, calories go a lot farther than they do with processed foods. FYI: You're averaging about 1,500 calories, 149 grams of protein, 130 grams of carbs, and 38 grams of fiber a day (more if you're breastfeeding and working out). Depending on how much you have to lose and how active you are, you can lose up to two pounds of fat per week on this plan. Read on for a month's worth of meal plans, dieting tips and tricks, and more info.
