I would think it's more deep than the sheer # of calories changing. An infant takes a lot out of a mother in being created. The skeleton needs minerals, the brain needs omega 3's... these things are taken from the mother's body and need to be replenished.

My advice would be to go paleo, eat liver once a week, get plenty of omega 3's, green leafy veggies, and meat. Similarly, meet cravings for junk food with healthier alternatives.

If you haven't already, check out the issue of the Performance Menu that dealt with this to some degree.
