I am 23 years old and had my daughter November 09 and during my pregnancy I gained 70lbs. I am beginning to exercise and want to burn atleast 1-2000 calories a day to bring down my weight but I am afraid that will decrease my milk production (why I think this....I honestly do not know). I know eating the right foods and doing proper exercise will help to slowly decrease my weight but at the same time I do not want to slow my milk production down since that becomes available from what and how often I eat (right?).
So what should my caloric intake be so that I can still burn that many calories a day and keep energy up for myself and milk production up for my baby?
I would greatly appreciate the help if anyone can guide me in this situation.
