PREGNANCY & LCHF
When you finally do conceive, avoiding complications is of utmost importance. The well-being of the mother has a direct impact on the baby's health. What your diet and Metabolic health is like during the preconception period and pregnancy will most likely determine complications such as gestational diabetes, excess weight, blood pressure, miscarriage and others conditions. A Real Food diet is most appropriate. A nutrient-rich diet higher in healthy fats and low in sugars will help avoid most of these complications and ensure that your baby has the very best start. Proper supervision is recommended.
Lily Nichols, RDN, is my go-to recommendation. Her two book "Real Food for Pregnancy" and "Real Food for Gestational Diabetes" are great evidence-based resources. Watch her Low Carb Denver 2019 lecture above.
