there’s nothing more joyous than the
birth of a beautiful healthy baby.
Expectant mothers and women trying to
get pregnant want more than anything to
have that healthy happy baby
and diet plays a big part in that
outcome please share this video because
so many don’t know
[Music]
in today’s video we’ll be talking about
keto while pregnant or breastfeeding
the diets that a dietician or doctor
might recommend to an expectant mother
would probably include lots of whole
grain fruit and fruit juices the problem
is there is no meaningful research
showing that these diets are safe in
pregnancy so we are left searching the
research and a human past to discover
the best way of eating in pregnancy you
see there are certain nutrients that the
developing baby needs these nutrients
are essential and the newborn will
suffer if these are not included in a
mother’s diet now there’s very little
research done on keto while pregnant
there are studies done on mice but these
mice were fed synthetic fats and
vegetable oils and not what is
recommended to eat on keto diet at all
so those study results are quite
irrelevant and since there is not much
research done for any diet on pregnancy
so let’s move onto the common-sense part
of decision making
now babies brains are made of
cholesterol and fats and some proteins
but not carbs. The heart and the brain are
formed very early on in the process
other cultures and diets hundreds of
years ago fed their pregnant women lots
of healthy fats. Now there are 4 Vitamins
that are considered fat soluble and
that a baby needs for proper development
these are vitamin A D and K so if the
fats that you are consuming while
pregnant are canola oil corn oil margarine
or any of the processed oils then you’re not
getting any of those vitamins whatsoever.
For a baby’s brain to develop
properly it needs those fat soluble
vitamins and you can get them from
pastured butter pastured eggs pastured
meat and animal bone broth you certainly
are not going to get them from a bottle of
processed vegetable oil
you see keto diet is nutrient-dense
filled with healthy fats and a lot of
fresh veggies now before I share a
real-life case study with you please
take a moment to like subscribe and
don’t forget to hit that bell icon to be
notified about whenever
new keto video is uploaded okay so it’s
time to meet Karolina Cartier she
discovered she was pregnant with twins
in March 2017 and she’d never questioned
whether she would continue eating a
ketogenic diet
you see Carolina was plagued by metabolic
issues literally all her life precocious
puberty at age three polycystic ovarian
syndrome PCOS by age 14 weight gain of
320 pounds on her 6-foot frame and
pre-diabetes by her 20s her PCOS caused
her ovaries to be enlarged and covered
in cysts. she was told she was infertile
and likely never able to have children.
In August 2015
age 28 her health was so poor that she
went on medical disability from her job
as a financial analyst that first month
off however she discovered and adopted
the ketogenic diet between summer of
2014 and February 2017 she lost 120
pounds experienced her first ever
natural menstrual period that gradually
established into a regular 28-day cycle
her blood sugar normalized and her
ovaries reduced to three and a half
centimeters size, her long-standing
depression lifted on top of that her
positive pregnancy test in March way 17
was a happy surprise as was the news
soon after that she was carrying healthy
twins when asked about eating keto
while pregnant she simply said my life
is transformed why would I even consider
abandoning this way of eating with all
of the positive health changes and my
pregnancy I owe to this diet we’re happy
to report that Karolina has since given
birth to two beautiful and healthy twins
Dr. Michael Fox, a fertility specialist
at the Jacksonville Center for
Reproductive Medicine says it is
completely safe for women to be eating a
keto diet in pregnancy women in ancient
times
certainly ate the ketogenic way during pregnancy
dr. Fox has not only been recommending a
low-carb ketogenic diet for 17 years to
his infertile patients but also to all
his patients who become pregnant he has
now had hundreds of patients who were
completely keto while pregnant
without any untoward effects
he recommends women start the diet 2 to
3 months before trying to conceive
so that the mom is fat adapted before
entering pregnancy he advises that once
pregnant the mother enjoys frequent low
carb high fat eating every two hours
from the time she wakes up with no
fasting he provides a dietary handout of
meal and snacking foods that list items
such as cream cheese or unsweetened nut
butters on vegetables like celery
cucumber or cauliflower as well as nuts
egg in all forms meats canned and fresh
fish cheese’s avocado unflavored pork
rinds butter and full fat cream in his
experience eating this way decreases the
rates of miscarriage preeclampsia
gestational diabetes and morning
sickness
he says nausea is a reactive
hypoglycemic reaction to the
dramatically increased insulin
resistance caused by pregnancy hormones
lastly Karolina Cartier whose case study we
just shared with you suggest that if you
want to tell your doctor about how you
have chosen to eat while pregnant then
just don’t say Keto
it makes them scared say your
eliminating sugar and processed
foods no doctor is going to give you a
daily sugar requirement now that was a
very brief more of a common sense lowdown
on keto while pregnant or breastfeeding
but before you go I’d like to give you
my free 10-part video series on KETO FOR
WOMEN plus some gooey bonuses too – the
link for which you can find it on the
