Banting When You're Expecting: Ine Reynierse's Guide to LCHF Lifestyle During Pregnancy
Ine Reynierse, the author of Low Carb is Lekker, is a blogger and advocate of the LCHF lifestyle. She recently wrote an article about her low carb pregnancy.
In the article, Reynierse discusses the doubts that she had about continuing the low carb diet while pregnant, and how emphatically these doubts were allayed when she did her research.
The article includes food to avoid, foods to focus on, and a diet guide for each trimester.
