Pregnancy and slim fast????

Opt for unsaturated "good" fats like olive oil, canola oil, and peanut oil. Snacks can be perfectly healthy during pregnancy, even if your doctor recommends a small amount of weight gain or weight loss.

Choose healthy snacks rich in nutrition over processed foods and desserts heavy in sugar or rich dairy fat. Consider a banana smoothie or frozen all-fruit nonfat sorbet instead of ice cream and shakes. Munch on trail mix, nuts, and fruit in between meals. Instead of white crackers and fatty cheese, eat whole-grain crackers covered with a small amount of low-fat cheese.

Hard-boiled eggs, whole-grain toast, and plain yogurt are other snack options worth considering. Instead of sugary drinks, go for low-sodium vegetable juice, sparkling water with a splash of fruit juice, or flavored skim or soy milk over ice.

Exercise is an important part of weight-loss diets outside of pregnancy and it also plays a significant role in achieving a healthy weight during pregnancy. Healthy pregnant women should get, at minimum, 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate aerobic activity weekly.

It may make losing weight after pregnancy easier, as well. Talk to your doctor before beginning an exercise regimen. Stop exercise immediately if vaginal bleeding occurs or if your water breaks prematurely. Good exercise options to choose from include low-impact activities like walking, swimming, dancing, and cycling. Avoid activities where you can get struck in the abdomen, like kickboxing or basketball. You should also avoid activities during which you might fall, like horseback riding.

Not Helpful 33 Helpful It depends what you mean by "fast". A continuous fast is not a good idea, as you might deny the baby some of the nutrients it requires for development.

On the other hand, half-day fasts for a short period of time might be fine, provided you eat well and drink plenty of water during the non-fasting part of the day and get plenty of rest and avoid strenuous activity.

Of course, if you have a lot of nausea and are finding it hard to get adequate intake, you may have to just eat when you can and forget fasting for the time being.

Exercising at a fast aerobic pace will burn fat, exercising slowly will build muscle. If you combine the two, weight is maintained. When a woman hits the age of 30, the body will gain about 5 pounds.

This increase is due to the body beginning to shift hormonal balance. Women who exercise alot may begin peri-menopause as early as 30 where you experience some weight gain, mood swings, and changes in the period.

You can exercise while taking the B12 with Lipotropics for weightloss, in fact it's highly recommended.
