Eat the healthy fats and plenty of them ladies!

There is so much goodness in avocado, olive oil, different varieties of nuts (not salted or roasted though!!). Don’t avoid these essential fatty acids as they will help boost your energy levels rather than dull them like sugar does.

I know when breast feeding or the time of the month you often crave sugars or suddenly need something sweet.  Allow yourself a small treat, but remember you will get a high and then get the slump soon after.  What you can do is eat some salad or a carrot or mange tout or a spoonful of the pure peanut butter.  These can really help you avoid big blood sugar spikes and falls.

Try and eat more vegetables at a meal, fill the plate with curly kale, broccoli or salad and importantly don’t skip meals as if you are breast feeding your baby needs these nutrients from you too.  Dieting is NOT a good idea when breast feeding, neither is it good to try the fasting.  You need your energy and what the baby takes from you.

Still not sure which fitness class is for you?

Are you a woman who has pelvic girdle pain? Do you have pelvic floor issues? Have you had a C-section, episiotomy or tears? Do you have a Diastasis Recti or weak deep abdominals? Are you peri – menopausal? Do you want to get fit in a safe environment? I can help, get in touch to find out more.
