We've had lots of pregnant and breastfeeding mums quit sugar with us, but as with any changes during this special time, we always recommend consulting your doctor or midwife before making any changes to your diet.
One of the many benefits of the 8-Week Program and 7-Day Reboot meal plans is the focus on cutting out processed and refined foods, minimising toxins and embracing a whole-foods approach, all of which are ideal when you're pregnant.
Unlike many fad diets, nothing is removed that is essential to gestational health. We'll be bumping up your intake of veggies, healthy fats and proteins, so you won't even miss the packaged and processed foods that are being removed.
Pregnant women require lots of energy, so it’s vital to ensure that you’re eating enough. Towards the end of the 8-Week Program we focus on reducing our snacking throughout the day and shifting to a three-meals-a-day-only style of eating. This may not apply to you and you're encouraged to eat as much as you need to feel energised and satiated.
We strongly recommend adhering to the advice and guidelines suggested to you by your doctor or midwife regarding nutrition and cooking techniques.
We've had lots of breastfeeding mums quit sugar with us, however you'll need to be mindful you're eating enough to make sure you're obtaining sufficient calories to keep your milk supply (and energy levels) abundant.
We encourage you to listen to your body and increase your portion sizes and snack regularly throughout the day if you feel you need it. We also recommend you work with your preferred health practitioner to ensure you're fuelling your body appropriately during this time.
