ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says as long as someone is getting all the nutrients they need, and the nutrition needed to produce an appropriate amount of breastmilk, then the paleo diet (which is meant to consist of lean meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds) can be a great option.
Tia is also looking to curb the sugary cravings she developed during her pregnancy. OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry suggests:
- Eating a balanced diet
- Eat on a regular schedule to avoid feeling extreme hunger, which can make cravings worse
- If you need something sweet, opt for a smaller portion -- like a "fun size" candy bar -- and skip the large version
- Get plenty of rest, as being sleep-deprived can affect someone's appetite, which can cause sudden food cravings
As always, speak with your doctor before starting any new diet.
