I am so excited to write this post because I’ve officially chosen my favorite protein powder, specifically for helping to lose the baby weight while breastfeeding. I wrote about the protein powders I recommend for weight loss while breastfeeding, and this powder, the IdealFit was on the list. I had originally put in on the list, mentioning that their regular brand had Sucralose, so it may be fine for others, but I can’t digest Sucralose.

Now, IdealFit has a Raw brand, with NO SUCRALOSE, and it’s much more natural!! I am so excited, and I love it! Here’s what the website says about how this brand is sweetened: “IdealRaw is sweetened with organic stevia and contains nothing artificial. Whether you have a sensitivity to artificial sweeteners or simply just want to avoid them, you can rest assured that IdealRaw is the best in clean nutrition.” Many moms don’t utilize a good protein powder because they are afraid of what’s in it, passing chemicals to their baby through their milk, and they can’t digest the whey or other ingredients well. This one is unique to most powders because of how natural it is.
First off, ITS CLEAN! Here’s what that means:
- Vegan Friendly
- Dairy Free
- Gluten Free
- Soy Free
- USDA Certified Organic
- Naturally Sweetened
Basically, it’s free of chemicals and you can pronounce/know what all the ingredients are. Here are the ingredients for you, and you should grab their IdealShape FREE Smoothie Book!
Some important ingredients for breastfeeding mamas, Wheat Grass, Broccoli, Beet Powder and SuperFruits Blend.
These are FULL of vitamins and minerals that you need when you are both working out and breastfeeding. It is super important to consume as many, natural vitamins and antioxidants as possible because you are supporting yourself and another baby. And, you don’t have to worry about any additional chemicals you might be passing off to your baby, because there aren’t any!
They also allow you to return the protein powder if you try it, and it doesn’t sit well with you or your baby!
The taste is so good! I’ve had a few different plant-based protein powders, and this one is by far the creamiest. I can take some grittiness knowing that I am drinking something very good for myself and my baby, but there isn’t much with this powder. And, if you don’t like it, you can send it back!
I’ve had a lot of success with this powder, and I have tried a bunch! If you aren’t sure, or aren’t too concerned about the product being the cleanest while nursing, you might like my post, Delicious Protein Powders Perfect For Breastfeeding Moms where I go over a few different protein powder options, and some are more affordable. I personally think that investing in a quality product to help you lose the baby weight and offer a tremendous amount of healthy milk to your baby is so worth it! They have theirOrganic Protein Starter Bundle – 45% off now! It includes an organic protein tub and:
· 3 FREE Organic Protein Sample Packs

And this powder will help with your supply, as well as cut down on cravings for sugar. There are a lot of reasons you may be craving sugar, and I think most of them stem from specific deficiencies I talk about here. The Real Reasons You’re Craving Sugar While Breastfeeding and What To Do About It.
In addition to the protein powder, there are some great foods you can add to your diet to help you lose the baby weight and keep up your milk supply. I wrote two posts that will help you find some foods you like!
