I am currently breastfeeding. Is there a way to input that?

Hi Jazmin,

Since breastfeeding varies for each woman, we don’t currently offer a specific recommendation for adjusting your calories. However, if you obtain a calorie estimate from your doctor or nutritionist, you can easily change your calorie goal to account for the difference.

To adjust your calorie goal:

On the Web​: Click “My Home” then “Goals” then "Change Goals, then select “Custom.” Be sure to save your changes.

In the Android, iPad and iPhone apps: Select “Goals” in the Menu (or “More” page) then “Calories” under Nutrition Goals.

​As an alternative, you may log “breastfeeding” as an exercise. Once you have a calorie estimate, you can add “breastfeeding” as a custom cardiovascular exercise to your exercise database.

Hope this helps! We wish you the best of luck in meeting and maintaining all your fitness goals!
