Is it safe to do intermittent fasting while pregnant? The answer isn’t a simple yes or no. There are a few questions to ask yourself. The most important thing is to get enough nutrients.

Questions to ask yourself about your pattern of fasting and eating:
• Will it create nutrient deficiencies?
If it does, don’t do it. If you did two meals, but they were very dense in nutrients and calories, and you’re adapted to keto, I don’t see a problem with that.

• Will it worsen my blood sugar levels?
Jumping into keto and intermittent fasting without enough knowledge could cause you to have low blood sugar levels, which isn’t healthy. It may be best to get into it gradually and let your body tell you when you’re hungry and when you should eat.

• Will it affect sex hormones?
Intermittent fasting doesn’t affect these hormones in a negative way. However, some foods like soy and commercial dairy can affect these hormones in a negative way.

• Will it spike insulin?
Keto and intermittent fasting can help normalize insulin. But, a high carb diet can spike insulin. High insulin can lead to high androgens, which can potentially lead to PCOS. One symptom of PCOS is infertility.

• Will it affect cortisol?
Keto and intermittent fasting may help improve cortisol levels by lowering stress.
