Breastfeeding helps moms lose weight

A new study concluded that women who gained a "reasonable" amount during pregnancy and breastfed were back to their pre-pregnancy weight by 6 months postpartum. According to the authors of the study, weight after pregnancy is a serious issue because so many women of childbearing age are overweight or obese.

The study is available here, but you'll need to be a subscriber to the journal or in a library that subscribes to get the full text.

Maybe someone should pass this article on to Salma Hayek?
