how much of it can i expect after switching to a near-vegetarian diet?
I have lost 7 lbs, BMI now under 18.5 making me underweight (I have always been skinny but now don't have time to exercise to build muscle), and breastfeeding a 1 yr old for most of his daily calories.
Is this amount of weight loss normal? Is it related to the diet switch or the breastfeeding or both? Will the weight slowly come back on again?
I know there are no black and white answers just trying to understand what is going on with my body and whether excluding meat and dairy is actually good or bad for me... I keep high-calorie healthy snacks available such as dried fruit/ nut butters/ bread. Can't understand why the weight loss?
