    Sad Face Weight gain in pregnancy after LE diet

    Hi,

    I did the LE diet for almost 6 months, lost 5 kg. When I got pregnant and started to eat NORMAL, my weight went quickly back to where I started. And I gained 5-6 kg more than with previous pregnancies. Now I am weighing 10 kg more, at least, and my baby is 3 months old.
    Anyone experienced rapid and more weightgain after diet?

    I believe its normal. Just eat healthy. And give it time. You will lose it.
    Congrats on your baby girl.

    Weight loss before pregnancy can result in rebound weight gain, unfortunately. You lose wight by making your body think resources are scarce, so it stores more for pregnancy & nursing in case it happens again.

    I'm only 6 weeks but yep, I've put on everything I lost whilst on LE plus more!!! 😞 And my eating has just been "normal". I'm devastated and not looking forward to the weight gain during pregnancy. 😕

    Considering I gained over 70 POUNDS last time, now you guys have me really scared! Here I was thinking I had a better "buffer" this time so I wouldn't get crazy fat again.

    Yes, unfortunately, your body gets used to lower calorie consumption and starts storing when you start eating normal. I am scared, I really have to work hard to get rid of the excess weight

    The weight gain could be due to being older, or having had a girl. I would not assume it's due to having dieted, especially as the LE is far from a starvation diet.

    My Ovulation Chart
    currently TTC, Cycle #16 since last BFP

    TTC #1 - swaying pink on & off since Nov 2013 - hoping for a girl first but excited for either!

    Dec 2001 - May 2006 : 5 early abortions of healthy singletons (3 medical @5w, 2 surgical @8w, last 4 pregnancies conceived with late DH, all conceived while TTA/on birth control)
    Mar 2012: miscarried B/G twins @5w (conceived 2 cycles after remověng Paraguard copper IUD while NTNP), one twin was ovarian ectopic

    Me: 34, widowed, late O + short LP, normal-good hormone levels excepting undetectable testosterone, seeking a known sperm donor/life partner
    My sway: vegetarian LE for over 28w, skipping breakfast, fibre (ground psyllium husks) with/before/between meals, physically inactive, drama avoidance, ocassional minimal YesBaby lube as needed, alternate cycles on low dose Clomid, double shot lattes (with meals)
    Past sway tactics I've dropped (in order): Vitex, Sudafed, antihistamines, intermittent fasting, one attempt per cycle at positive OPK, one attempt in fertile period

    That was my experience both with DS 4 and DD - gained a bit more than I had with other pg (esp. with DS 4). 3 months is not enough time to expect the weight to come off though. You need to give it at least 6-9 months and my advice for everyone who did LE Diet is breastfeeding and exercise. they will help reset your metabolism.

    No one should be scared about this. Breastfeeding and exercise will help reset your metabolism. This is not a permanent state of affairs and I gained 90 lbs with DS 4 and lost it all within 2 1/2 years plus about 10 lbs. DD I gained I think 60 lbs and have lost it back to my normal weight (would LOVE to take off 10 more lbs this time too but I am quite a bit older now than I was then)
