hello people. I haven't been able to shed my pregnancy weight due to which I've started taking phytoslim for weight loss as prescribed by my doctor.i exclusively breast feed my three month old baby and I just hope that supplement doesn't effect my baby's weight by any means. any body else knowledgeable about the same?

Why have u started the supplements.. Ur baby is just 3 months old.. It takes time to shed weight .. No1 loses it overnight.. Wait for few months

it's not good to start supplements.  . wait for few more months

dnt worry dear even i was thinking lyk dis bt now i hav reduced my weight naturally as my bby is on bf only after 6months my wt started shedding. breastfeeding is the best treatment for weight loss just hav sum patience dnt take any supplements

isn't it too early to take any medicine for weight loss?

Fathima everyone wants to come back to the pre pregnancy body... but there should not b any hurry... your body needs time... y don't you start with walks... and after few days talk to your doc and start with exercises... a proper diet plan and exercise itself will help you a lot. and breast feeding will also help you to loose calories.

I agree with all the moms.  please do NOT take supplements. your body took 9 months to gain weight how can you expect to lose it in 2? eat healthy and exercise and breastfeed. youll be your normal self soon. supplements are not healthy for you or your baby

you should not think of weight loss so early and as you are in exclusively BF.  breastfeeding itself consumes so much calories and proper diet is required to suffice that . taking a supplement to support weight loss at this stage is not at all recommended.  the traces can go in milk as well . continue taking vitamin and irons. you can do light  yoga and walking to maintain health .

Fathima Honey! There is nothing in this world that can replace healthy eating and exercise to reduce weight. Not even supplements. Don't go down that route. I have been there and trust me it will not give you long lasting benefits. Start with regular walks now if you feel strong enough. Or you can start after 3 months. Look at what you eat. Controlling portion sizes is extremely essential when it comes to reducing weight at any time in life and not just post pregnancy. Have 6 to 7  small meals throughout the day. If you had a c section you can start working out your abdominals after 6 months. Otherwise you can start earlier. Use 1kg weights in your walks to tone your arms. Start doing calf raises and leg raises every day to strengthen your legs. You can start swimming as well after 6 months. Yoga is also beneficial. Start gradually and see how you feel. And be patient. It took you 9 months to create your baby. Give your body at least that much time to get back. You will need to put in some effort to achieve your pre pregnancy fitness. Sadly there is no short cut :) And don't give up. Weight loss is possible only if we are patient and consistent. Tc!

plzz dnt take all these as ur breastfeeding. plzz wait until 6 months n also when u breastfeed u loose wait naturally. so plzz avoid n eat healthy.

well I did ask my doctor whether the medication would affect my baby or my breast milk . he said it's completely safe. I don't know. am too confused

Fathima Siddique  please have a look the medicine should not be taken in pregnancy and breastfeeding .   https://www.drugs.com/uk/phytoslim-leaflet.html
if it is the same i.e. prescribed to you . would suggest you to go thrpugh the instruction manual that you have got alongwith the medicine.
