EDIT: I just posted all this and realised the thread is about baby weight, oops!

Yes it is possible and I have done it, after years of trying all kind of diets I feel I am finally healthy, I feel great and am maintaining a low ish bodyfat (12%). Some background: 29 years old, male, into bodybuilding. I have been lifting weights in the pursuit of a more attractive body and for health purposes since a young age, however as I got older, probably around 24 I started experimenting with different diets which ultimately lead me down the path of poor health due to a number of reasons including low carb, high protein, high fat and wrong types of fat. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I feel I have found or am very close to the perfect diet for feeling good and also being lean. I am 5 ft 10 inches and weigh 80 kg, at the moment I am eating around 2500 kcals per day comprised of 380g carbs, 130g protein, 60g fat. I used to eat high (100-130g) of fat with much lower carbs (150g) and found it much harder to loose weight not to mention feeling like death all the time! Keeping carbs high has made such a huge difference to my health, I will never do low carb again. Keeping fat low is the key in keeping lean, for me anyway. Here is my day to day diet if anyone is interested, this has been tweaked and tweaked over years to produce what I feel and function the best on. I add lots of salt to these meals.

Breakfast:
150g rice
125g grass fed beef mince
2 organic eggs

Lunch
550g potato
100g chicken breast
20g cashews
Salad

Dinner
150g rice
125g grass fed beef mince
2 organic eggs
Carrot
Salsa
