Becoming a new mom is a joyous occasion, but many new mothers may notice how their bodies have changed due to the “baby weight” gain, which tends to be particularly difficult to lose. New mothers and those who are nursing have a lot to consider when it comes to choosing a diet that will be balanced enough to support both their own dietary needs and those of their infant. Medifast California welcomes the special opportunity to help new mothers regain their pre-pregnancy physique in a gradual and healthy fashion, with results that will last.
Here are three reasons why we believe Medifast California program is the smartest way for new moms to lose weight:
Lose Weight While Nursing
With Medifast California, you don’t have to wait until you stop nursing to start losing weight.
Our program is designed for the nursing mother whose baby is just over two months of age. Our nutritionally balanced program allows for gradual weight loss and is designed to support your body’s nutritional needs while encouraging optimal growth in your nursing child. We recommend the Medifast CA Jumpstart 5 & 1 Plan once your baby’s food intake is less than 30% breast milk. This plan reduces your carb and calorie intake, which may lead to an increase in the rate at which you are losing weight.
Balanced Nutrition for Busy Moms
New moms are some of the busiest people on the planet! While you adjust to your new baby’s sleep-wake cycle, nursing habits and general schedule of care, the last thing you’ll want to worry about is counting calories or measuring meal portions. Medifast California’s meal plan is ideal in this regard in that it is both nutritionally sound and optimized for adequate flexibility depending on your specific dietary needs.
As the building blocks for many of the organs and tissues in the body, protein is of high importance to mothers who are nursing. To ensure adequate protein is present in a mother’s breast milk, it is recommended that nursing mothers consume about 71 grams of protein daily. Medifast California meal plans provide around 72 grams of protein along with other essential nutrients, such as iron and calcium.
Variety and Accessibility
We pride ourselves on providing a robust and delicious variety of meal options. While other programs can make clients feel very restricted in their available meal choices, Medifast California was designed based on scientific and clinical research with a focus on client success and satisfaction. From smooth shakes to soft baked goods, there is no shortage of yummy options including healthy snacks for those moments when you crave a quick and convenient treat. With 15 different Medifast California locations in both Northern and Southern California, you are sure to find a convenient location for you. Always remember to consult your physician before starting a new diet plan. Our certified weight control counselors are ready to guide and support new moms throughout their weight-loss journey.
