Factors like genetics and some health conditions can impact your body weight. Your weight is primarily a function of diet and lifestyle. By definition, diet is the kinds of food you habitually eat. We also know diet to mean a specific course of food you restrict yourself for medical reasons or lose weight. Diets restrict calories, limit certain foods or increase particular foods. There are many varying opinions on diet, and there is no definitive research to support one ideal diet for everyone. This episode provides an overview of popular diets and considerations for continuing or starting these diets during pregnancy. Learn about weight gain during pregnancy and the safety of diets like caloric restriction, low glycemic, keto, paleo, low fat, the Louwen diet for pregnancy, and intermittent fasting. Plus, what your diet goal should be and what to eat when you are pregnant.
