What is the relationship between the frequency of eating during lactation and post-partum weight loss?
Approach to Answering the Question
NESR Systematic Review
Frequency of Eating Subcommittee
Systematic Review Protocol
Developed for each scientific question being examined, the protocol describes the plan for how the systematic review will be conducted. The protocol provides the:
- Analytic framework,
- Literature search and screening plan, and
- Literature search and screening results.
For this question, frequency of eating will consider the number and timing of daily eating occasions. In addition, outcomes include change in weight from baseline (post-partum) to a later time point during the post-partum period and post-partum weight retention (if gestational weight gain is controlled for).
This page will be updated with the draft conclusion once it has been developed. Draft conclusions are not considered final until they have been deliberated with and decided upon by the full Committee and published in the Committee’s report.
