Has anyone ever done kimkins while pregnant? This is my third child and I really don't want to gain weight I am already heavy and I would actually like to lose a little weight. Please let me know....
Up to today (June 28) no Admin has bothered to give an answer.
Kimmer has posted on other places on the board. Singingass has posted on other places on the board. Gary is missing.
Kimkins is a starvation diet and should not be used by anybody. But an unborn child? I am speechless.
From Women's Health:
Make sure not to restrict your diet during pregnancy either. If you do, your unborn baby might not get the right amounts of protein, vitamins, and minerals. Low-calorie diets can break down a pregnant woman's stored fat. This can lead to the production of substances called ketones. Ketones can be found in the mother's blood and urine and are a sign of starvation. Constant production of ketones can result in a mentally retarded child.
