Low Carb Diets Pregnancy
  • When you are pregnant it is important to watch
    what you eat. You are eating for two. That does
    not mean you need to eat more, it just means that
    you need to eat smart! You are the babys only
    source of nutrients, and all the good stuff that
    it needs in order to grow in you. Therefore, you
    are going to need to follow a diet filled with
    vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates, and
    fiber in the right mix.
  • Most prenatal dietitians today, are strongly
    against mums who want to follow a strict no carb
    diet. If you do not have a good amount of carbs,
    your body will produce something called ketones.
    The ketones can put your baby at risk for brain
    damage as it grows.

  • You may be curious about low-carb diets then. Low
    carb diets do have the risk of mental retraction
    for the child along with worsening the
    discomforts you can experience during the
    pregnancy. Low-carb diets can lower the levels of
    dietary fiber which can worsen constipation since
    many pregnant women need iron supplements.
    Prenatal dietitians also recommend taking lots of
    fruit because of its vitamin content. However,
    most of the ingredients you find in a shake are
    banned by diets such as Atkins and South Beach
    because of the sugars.

Going on a low-carb diet while youre pregnant

Going on a low-carb diet while youre pregnant
may affect your babys weight, and how she
develops. It may also prevent you both from
getting the nutrients you need to stay healthy.
Drastically reducing or increasing the amount you
eat may even increase the likelihood of your baby
having weight problems as she grows up. Low-carb
diets, such as the Atkins, South Beach and Dukan
diets, may increase the levels of toxic chemicals
(ketones) in your blood. These acids remain when
your body burns its own fat. The same applies to
any other diets that cut out food groups.

Low-carb diets tend to be high in fat, and may
also restrict the amount of fruit, vegetables and
fiber you eat. You may deny yourself and your
baby important vitamins and minerals, such as
folic acid and calcium. Its also unlikely that
youll be able to sustain these diets in the long
term. Fans of low-carb diets say that
carbohydrate-rich foods are fattening. But gram
for gram, carbohydrates contain less than half
the calories of fat. Low-carb diets also tend to
be high in protein, which can cause side-effects
such as tiredness and bad breath, as well as
increasing your risk of getting kidney
stones. Read more here about week by week
