I am nursing my 3 month old & doing a variety of turbo jam workouts but haven't seen any results yet. Can I diet while nursing to help lose the weight?

If you use the search function above you'll find some good threads on breast feeding and doing Beachbody programs. My short answer is actually just some words of encouragement. You had a baby only 3 months ago. And you're doing a terrific thing right now feeding your child. You will get your body back where you want it to be but for now, go easy on yourself. Exercise is good. Healthy nutrition is good. But don't go on any extreme diets just to lose the weight you gained over 9 months of pregnancy.

Congratulation on your fitness journey and to you and your husband on the birth of your child.

From experience with my wife when we had our first and second child, nursing takes a lot out of you and requires the calories needed to be replenish and also so does exercising. Your body will need the extra calories to restore the energy and nutrients lose from both, plus you a still healing from child birth(doctors say it takes 6 months to a year to fully heal). My advice would be to make sure you get adequate amount of food after workouts and nursing to reduce the stress that is put on to you and that your body doesn't get into starvation mode. And yes you can diet, but diet in the smart make sure you have enough calories for you and your child to go through the day and make sure the food you eat are highly nutrient like fruits, veggies, whole grain/wheat, nuts and lean meat.
