@thhq "beat" me to the part of the answer. :)imo, at your age, with your level of exercise and what you're eating, you're probably already at your 'easy 'equilibrium' size, shape & weight. That's pretty much as far as paleo will take you.. your... (more)

You shouldn't even be thinking about the subject of weight loss while breastfeeding. You should only be concerned with proper nutrition as you are eating for two. Hopefully you don't consider this smarta@@, because it is the only way to go IMO. (more)

Here are my thoughts on the topic. The leaner you are, the more noticable any X% change in body fat is. That is, if you're 7% body fat, losing 1% of body fat is going to be a lot more noticeable than if you are 20% body fat and losing 1%. This... (more)
