Eat more plants. The right way.
If you're reducing your consumption of animal products, it's important to plan right.
Too many peoplePlant-based diets are good for health, and good for the planet.
But so many people wi among them net carbs, fiber, protein, iron, folate (folic acid), choline, iodine, fluoride, magnesium, selenium ... and the list goes on.
Undershooting or overshooting your requirements creates health risks for you & your baby. For example:
Folate (folic acid). Too little folate, and your baby is at higher risk of developing neural tube defects. Too much folate -- as often occurs with improper folic acid supplementation (anything over 400 micrograms / day) -- increases the risk of your baby developing autism spectrum disorder.
Calorie intake & macronutrient ratios. Some weight gain during pregancy is normal. But excessive weight gain not only increase your risk of developing gestational diabetes, but it can increase your child's risk of developing obesity, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes later in life.
