Pregnant women NEED carbohydrates...a bare MINIMUM of 175g or about 50-65% of total calories. So, just adding more protein is not necessarily the answer. A
ctually, pregnant women only need an extra 25g of protein during pregnancy for optimal growth of the fetus. Any more isn't going to do a whole lot. All macro- and micor-nutrients have to be in place. Ensures were designed for this.quote]
Dude where the hell do you get your info from. 50% of her cals coming from 175 grams of carbs would mean she's only eating 1400 cals/day, maybe a little more. Even counting the fact that you said "minimum" doesn't add up to a whole lot, giving the wrong impression on how much she should eat...it should be more like, "eat as much good foods as you can & quit complaining. Your pregnant, beoch". (edit as you wish)
And to say that she only needs 25 extra grams of protein to support her child is like saying that EVERY child born ALWAYS weighs 4 kilos and it is PROVEN that 25 grams is all that is necessary. It's f---ing ridiculous.
I wouldn't let anyone I know listen to such BS even if EVERY M.D. on the planet said as such. You shouldn't limit a pregnant womans protein OR calorie intake based on bogus info like that.
