Keto and Pregnancy: Is it ok to lose weight?

Hey folks! One of our Keto Masterclass students had a great question related to keto and pregnancy, specifically, is it ok or advisable to lose weight or set cals at a maintenance level. Here is that original question:

Hey Robb, So my husband and I just started the program and then today I found out I am pregnant. I’m going to follow your advice and make sure to track all food to make sure I’m eating enough, but I’m also wondering if it is okay to be in a deficit as I am still 30% body fat. I am hoping to lose a little body fat but maintain a healthy pregnancy weight. Just wondering what you think (or what your wife thinks). I refuse to get fat while pregnant! But I want to use my head and stay healthy.

This is a great question and I did a short video to tackle this:

I reached out to my good friend Lily Nicols RD who has been on the podcast and is a genius with all things pregnancy and gestational diabetes. Here are the links we mentioned in the video:

The Ultimate Work Space

Hi, guys! Happy Thursday!

Our sweet boy was up and at ’em at 5:30 AM this morning. He walked into our bedroom and immediately flipped on the lights. Oy. I was sound asleep, so I was so confused when I saw him standing next to the bed staring at me. Ha!

Once I figured out what was going on, we headed downstairs to keep Mal company while he ate breakfast. I immediately poured myself a glass of iced coffee mixed with hazelnut iced tea. <— I planned to have an iced coffee after my workout, so I started the day with a half and half. Too much coffee (even decaf) *might* be related to some of my acne breakouts. I’m still trying to put the pieces together by keeping a journal of my symptoms.

Breakfast was a rice cake with peanut butter, banana, and cinnamon. Easy. Simple. Delicious.

Once Qman and I were ready for the day, I dropped him off at school. He gave me the biggest and best hug before I left, and, my gosh, it was tough to say goodbye this morning. After spending a week with him on vacation, I’ve missed him so much this week. Ugh, it hurts my heart just thinking about it. Sorry, I don’t mean to complain. I know we’re lucky to have a flexible schedule, but, man, I’m missing him this week. I’m definitely going to pick him up early from school today. Sorry, tangent. Anyway…

Now that we have a “homebase” for Designed to Fit Nutrition (and Nutrition House Software) within KFIT, I really have no excuse for NOT working out. Our office is literally feet from the gym and I can shower afterward, so there’s no extra time needed for commuting and I can get right to work after my workout. It’s basically the best work-life situation ever. I truly don’t think I could ask for a more perfect work space. And, hey, pink barbells.

Today’s workout was short and sweet. I used #75 for the Push Press and finished around 15 minutes.

Post-workout snacks: Protein ball, blueberries, and iced coffee mixed with vanilla protein powder.

Now, it’s time to get to work! Enjoy the day, friends!
