Eating well while breastfeeding

So my kid is 4 months old and we are exclusively breastfeeding and it’s going great. But is anyone else just constantly hungry? Like there is no amount of food to satisfy my hunger. On top of that with the lack of sleep, stress and boredom that comes with being a stay at home mom I just keep “treating myself” to unhealthy foods. I’m managing to have pretty healthy foods too but how are y’all able to limit or avoid easy, convenient, delicious and fatty foods?

I had a major issue with sweet cravings after having my second child, exclusively breastfeeding and having a toddler didn’t help. I needed to find something that would help me curb those cravings and still fill me up. Honestly, I started nutritional dutch chocolate protein shakes and they really helped me to substitute those cravings for something good and they have completely changed my appetite :) My kids are older now, 3 and 5, but I’ve been able to stick with it, it’s been the best decision.

I'm dairy free gluten free Smoothies really help with protein powder. Lara bars and fig bars help too Burrito bowls and Buddha bowls FTW

My son is 3 1/2 month's old EBF, I'm always hungry too sucks cuz I'm trying to lose weight but I try and buy healthy snacks when grocery shopping. I stopped drinking soda a month ago and have been drinking more water and my last grocery trip I didn't buy nearly as much junk as I have been and stocked up on healthy snacks.

Girl I am forever hungry! I nurse and just introduced baby food but goodness! I can’t get enough. Doesn’t matter what it is! Is it edible? Does it taste good? Is it in my house? Cool! I want it now! 😂
