You mentioned a lot of about your history of fad diets, and yoyo-ing, but you made no mention of any form of exercise at all, or how many calories your consuming currently (a caloric deficit is a requirement for fat loss, paleo or not). Your diet... (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)
