    Do NOT use acai berry while breastfeeding. Anything you eat or drink will go directly to your baby. With most mothers, breastfeeding alone will help you lose weight because breastfeeding burns 500 calories a day. I would recommend doing some of these simple tips to help you lose a little weight, but while you are breastfeeding you should only lose 1 lb a week for now because your baby is so young. Once he/she hits the 6 month mark, you can try and lose up to 3 lbs a week and that won’t affect your milk supply. Read my blog, I wrote it specifically for mothers trying to lose weight.

    Easy tips to lose some weight and eat healthier:

    #15. Eat Breakfast. More specifically, eat a good breakfast. I’m not saying that you have to go all out with pancakes, eggs, bacon and what not. But it is a proven fact that those who eat breakfast regularly lose more weight than those who don’t. Having a simple piece of wheat toast, an egg and some coffee will suffice. Make sure you eat in moderation, which leads me to tip #14.

    #14. You can enjoy your favorite foods, in moderation. I think one of the best things that you can do is start eating smaller, more frequent meals throughout the day. And instead of going for that second helping of dinner, just stick with one and have a piece of fruit. Even the most healthy foods can be harmful to your weight loss goals if overdone. I know, it’s happened to me.

    #13. Try and have around 4-5 small meals a day. This includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, and 1-2 snacks. The reason behind this logic is that when their is less time in between meals, your metabolism stays high, you don’t get hungry and therefore you tend to eat a little better and don’t over do it.

    #12. Eat Slowly. I know, you’re probably thinking. What does that have to do with losing weight. Well, when we’re in a hurry, we tend to just scarf down our food, usually just swallowing it in whole chunks. We don’t listen to our bodies because we are eating so fast and we can never know when we’re actually full until we’re past that point. Just take some time when you are eating, savor your food and realize the full flavor of it before you swallow. That should be good enough.

    #11. Never skip a meal. NEVER!! When we skip meals, it sends our bodies into starvation mode, causing it to save all the fat we’ve eaten for another ‘starvation mode’ instead of converting it into energy and burning it off.

    #10. Drink more water. They say that we should have at least 8 glasses of water a day, and I’m pretty sure most of us don’t. But we need to. Actually, if you’re actively trying to lose weight you should have at least 12 glasses of water per day, and another glass of water for every cup of tea, coffee, or soda we drink. Water flushes out our system, getting rid of all the impurities we have inside that make us gain weight.

    #09. Know your portions. I hate the idea of counting calories in foods, and I’m sure most moms are too. It’s a lot of work to do, especially when you’ve got a little one running around. Knowing your portions is especially handy because it lets you know how much you should be eating of a certain food. Half a cup of rice is about the size of your fist, one ounce of cheese is as much as a large marble; a three ounce serving of meat is the size of a deck of cards. Divide your plate into parts: Three fourths of it should be filled with vegetables, grains, beans and fruits while the other quarter should be extra-lean meat or low-fat dairy products.

    #08. Eat more protein with every meal. Protein helps build muscle, and muscle helps burn fat. There are tons of foods that are high in protein; eggs, lean meat, beans, nuts, etc… Take your pick.

    #07. Get enough sleep. Try and get between 7-8 hours of sleep a night. This tip can be especially hard, especially if you have a newborn or a child who doesn’t sleep through the night. My advice? Nap when they are napping. It’s a lot less motivating to work out when we are dead tired.

    #06. Add fruits/veggies to every meal. This is very simple. For breakfast, add a banana or apple. Lunch? Maybe some broccoli with ranch dipping sauce. It’s easy to incorporate fruits and veggies into your diet if you have them for every meal. Feeling motivated? Add two portions of fruits/veggies.

    #05. Stay Active. Play with your children for 30 minutes, go for a walk to the park and play with them. Clean the house. This little bit of work equals some definite weight loss.

    #04. Don’t eat on auto-pilot. What I mean by this is, don’t just eat just to eat. Eat when you’re truly hungry and eat to maintain your energy. If you love to cook, this should turn out to be a big problem, as it is with me. I taste everything I make. Have you done that before? Tasted the food that you’re cooking to make sure it is good, only to be full when the food is done? Bad idea…..

    #03. Stock up on pre-cut fruits. These handy little snacks should help you not to crave the bad foods. Just pull one o

    If you hate running, remember, you do not have to run a marathon to stay fit. 10 minutes of cardio each day is good enough for most.
    And if you can’t run, try walking. 15 minutes of brisk walking a day is enough to keep most fit.
