How to reduce intakes of calories in the post-maternal period?
During pregnancy you should take an extra of 300 calories on average everyday. When you reach post-maternal period, then it depends if you decide to breast feed your baby. Your diet should be resumed as before pregnancy if no breast feeding is taken ( i.e. reduce 200-300 calories per day). However for breast feeding mothers, your calories intake should be more or less the same as pregnancy period in order to maintain the nutrient content of breast milk. Of course you should avoid high fat and high sugar content food.
