Reading List

Recently I’ve been reading about supporting change, breastfeeding and nutrition, and other thoughts on food and health.

  • Did you know that breastmilk is still nutrient dense in starvation conditions? Maintaining your own nutrition while nursing is important so that you don’t deplete your body. And since breastmilk is so nutrient dense, why isn’t milk sharing the go-to alternative?
  • Getting the right kind of support for the stage of change you’re in matters. We’re in the “maintenance” stage of our dietary changes, and have recently been working to avoid ending up in the “relapse” stage.
  • One method I’m using to avoid relapse is mindfully eating. I don’t want to fall back into old habits, mindlessly downing foods that aren’t healthy for me.
  • Finally, if you feel okay, maybe you are okay.
