Popular Diet Trends: Impact and Safety During Lactation

Time-frame: 60-75
CERP: yes

Diet culture is pervasive and it seems everyday brings about a new popular trend or style in how, when, or what to eat. The postpartum period often brings about an incredible amount of pressure to lose weight or “bounce back” to pre-pregnancy body shape. It’s no wonder many turn to popular diet trends with the promises of quick weight loss. However, with a lack of research in the lactating population, there remains concern regarding both the effect these diets may have on milk supply and their safety. This presentation will provide lactation professionals with the information they need to have informative discussions with their clients about popular diet trends.
