I've been having a really hard time meeting my calories for the day. With breast feeding I am supposed to eat 1700 a day. Yesterday I was barely able to get down 1200. Any tips on how to boost the count up

So sorry I missed your post Jessica, it was hiding on the subforum lol. Well, what is your reason for not eating enough? or "barely able to get down" over 1200? If you feel nauseous perhaps you might have a digestive issue, which a good scan at the doc can rule out. I have acid reflux, and ginger tea nicks that in the bud. Proteins are usually higher in calories, and adding healthy fats to your foods, like olive oil in moderation, can also boost calories without taking up a lot of room in your tummy. Addressing what's keeping you eating less calories will provide some great direction on how to start correcting it. And with you breastfeeding you especially want to be sure you are getting enough because you are nourishing your little one

I totally agree with ryansmommy.

Eat high fat foods. They are calorically dense and tend not to fill you up so much - if that's the issue.

Stuff like avocado, coconut oil, olive oil, peanut butter, nuts, lots of meats and some fish are fatty. Whole milk.

If anyone goes the high fat route, just make sure its the "good fats" like avocado and nuts, as opposed to the deep fried / greasy stuff that people love to eat. You don't want to start stabilizing your weight by sending your cholesterol through the roof. As mentioned earlier, proteins are wonderful as well.

Drink Milk daily in the morning. Eat high protein foods that also contains fat. Don't skip fat from your meal, include cheese and butter in your meal. These fats are good for you during this situation.
