Bulletproof Baby – Post partum week 1-2: nutrition
Hooray! My baby boy is 10 days old! It’s been a very busy week since we left the hospital but he has been the most amazing baby and we love him very much!
I have changed my diet a bit to fit the busy breast feeding schedule. Guess what, I am still producing colostrum aka liquid gold, and the output is pretty impressive. His birth weight was 3.2kg, it went down to 2.8kg but now he has gained back to 3kg, being very healthy and active indeed.
Right now I am not doing intermittent fasting. I am awake to breastfeed the baby between 2:30am to 4:30am…. I get too hungry and I need to get more micronutrients! Therefore I eat a full meal during my morning feeding!
I don’t force myself to eat much in general but I still take lots of good fat, such as raw egg yolk, grass fed beef, wild caught salmon, olive oil, krill oil, ghee, MCT oil, pistachio, pili nuts, sesame paste, grass fed milk kefir. They are not clogging my milk ducts as many women say about eating fatty food… but that is probably because of sunflower lecithin I take.
Breakfast example: start with 2 tablespoons of cold pressed olive oil (atop by my mother to help with the bowl movement), home-made grass fed kefir and Ceylon cinnamon, natto (fermented soy beans) with raw egg yolk with grape seed extract, pili nuts with Himalayan salt, grass fed beef collagen marshmallow and lots of herbal tea.
What? Why soybeans? They are not a typical Bulletproof food. Despite what people say, I think organic soy beans are good for breastfeeding women, especially natto! It is rich in isoflavone and vitamin K2. Thank god I love it. I used to eat it with white rice but just eating natto and egg yolk is also ok.
Here are my breakfast macros!
Ps I already lost almost 8kg of body weight. I feel so much lighter!!!!!
