I'm not pregnant... yet anyway. My husband and I are talking about having another baby. If I decided to stay on Fat Smash, don't you think it would be okay if I were to become pregnant since it's basically trying to eat healthier? I'm pretty sure it is but just wanted to get everyone elses thoughts on it. Smile

I would check with your Doctor to be sure.

Definitely check with a doctor to be sure. It would be horrible if any lack of a vital nutrient were denied to your newborn because you weren't eating "normally". I do believe that your portions would have to increase at the minimum since you're really feeding 2 people when you're carrying the baby.

Humm - my question also!!

I figured that if I followed the GI Diet it wouldn't be as bad asall its really doing is re-educating the way you eat, and is a healthy diet for life.

What do others think about that?

I'm with everyone else - definitely talk to your doctor! With that said, I think you would be OK, with some modifications. You need more protein, carbs, and milk - so you certainly can't do strict interpretations of stages 1 or even 2. But, you need lots of fruits and veggies, which is basically the hallmark of FatSmash. So I think you could do a FatSmash-esque diet, with modifications. Plus, "experts" say it's best to eat 5-6 small meals a day to help control morning sickness/heart burn/and all the other "fun" parts of being pregnant - we're already doing that! Also, like everyone else said, your portions will need to increase. You need about 300 extra calories then what it takes you to maintain your current weight.

As with anything - nothing without Doctor's orders!

Of corse check with DR but I think that you just need to increase what you eat. Nothing wrong with being a heathy eater and after the baby it will be that much easier to lose it. The babies health is to important to risk.

I have heard that low carbohydrate diets are not good for a pregnant woman. I know you are overloading the fetus with proteins and not giving them enough whole grains. But in my opinion, phases three and four would be fine as long as you are not doing intense exercise.

Drink lots of water. If you can, try drinking the Benefiber packets in your bottled water. It keeps you feeling full which helps during the detox phase and it helps with bloat, belly fat, and energy.
