Lactogenic Weight Loss Diet Plan

There is one struggle that so many moms have postpartum, knowing how to lose the baby weight safely while breastfeeding. Can you even do that? How can you diet and breastfeed? How can you lose the excess weight and not lose your milk supply?

For years I’ve been asked by my mom clients these same questions in different ways again and again. So as a certified online health coach, fitness trainer, maternal nutrition specialist, and mom of 3, I decided to compile the proven successful postpartum diet and exercise plan that I created for my breastfeeding mom clients into a program that now anyone can have access to!

It’s called the Milky Mama’s Postpartum Plan and it is built for you! To teach you everything you need to know to be successful at postpartum weight loss while breastfeeding!

Check out my 28 day plan now to help you regain strength postpartum with short effective workouts, increase your milk supply with loads of delicious recipes, and finally lose that excess baby weight at the same time!

Foods to Increase Milk Supply in this Lactation Smoothie:

  • Oatmeal
  • Flax Meal
  • Brewer’s Yeast
  • Papaya
  • Almond milk

Shakeology Protein Powder:

I always suggest Shakeology for losing the baby weight postpartum. It’s what I drink myself because it has more nutrition than any other protein shake I’ve ever found AND the difference in how I feel when drinking it daily is substantial.

Shakeology is more than just a protein shake and the best for postpartum recovery because it also includes:

  • 70+ superfoods
  • Enough nutrients to replace your multivitamin or prenatal vitamin (less thing to remember)
  • Probiotics and prebiotics to enhance digestion
  • Adaptogens to help your body naturally deal with stress better
  • More digestive enzymes than any other protein powder to help you break down your food better and enhance the amount of nutrients your body can absorb
  • Whey protein (the type of protein women need to regain and repair muscle postpartum)
  • Greens and phytonutrients to boost immune system and fight free radicals

Getting enough protein is directly linked to breastmilk production. So a Shakeology protein shake is my favorite way to start my day.


Adding oats into your diet daily is a well known way to increase your milk supply. Oatmeal is high in iron. Which a nutrient essential to maintaining a high milk supply.

Oats are also amazing for keeping you full and satiated to help you continue a healthy diet to lose the baby weight quickly in a healthy way.

Flax Meal:

Flax seeds are a well known galactagogue. Almost every milk boosting recipe (cookies, smoothies, and more) will include it!

Flax meal contains essential fatty acids you need and definitely will boost your supply quickly.

Brewer’s Yeast:

This is a lactation smoothie recipe with brewers yeast because it is known to boost milk supply in some woman.

When added in moderation you can’t even taste it, so I always add a teaspoon into my morning smoothies. Be sure to get “debittered” Brewer’s yeast.


Green papaya is well known for increasing milk supply throughout Asia.

Even ripened papaya is loaded with nutrients including 3 times the amount of beta carotene of carrots!

Beta carotene is an essential nutrient for maintain a healthy milk supply and this fruit is loaded with it!

Almond Milk:

Almonds are the most lactogenic nut. While almond milk only contains a trace amount of almonds, it’s still worth adding.

Almond milk is loaded with vitamins and nutrients that are essential for maintain a healthy milk supply.

It contains notable amounts of Vitamins A, D, E, and calcium. This is a phenomenal choice as a base in your smoothies to increase lactation.
