Abstract:

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.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Describe the basic principles of three popular diet trends.

Objective 2: Assess the current evidence for these diet trends.

Objective 3: Identify potential contraindications on the use of these diet trends during lactation.
