I normally don't eat much & lately I've been getting sudden hunger & if I don't eat within minutes I get nauseas & my body shakes. Pregnancy or diabetes?

Either/ both: Sounds like you should be tested for both! please don't let this go on for long! eat smaller but frequent meals if it happens a lot, and get tested for diabetes (more than a finger check) and pregnancy. High glucose levels have to be controlled, and low ones can be life-threatening. ...Read more

Im 10 weeks pregnant, and have been drinking Atkins protein shakes in the morning. Should I stop drinking them?

Im 10 weeks pregnant, and have been drinking Atkins protein shakes in the morning. Should I stop drinking them?

More nutrients: You can continue to drink the Atkins protein shakes. You need 4 oz red meat 2 X/week to make sure that you are getting all of your essential amino acids and iron intake. Eat 5-7 servings of fruit / vegetables daily. You can juice the fruits / vegetables if that is easier than eating them. A high quality, nutrient dense diet greatly improves the chances of having a healthy pregnancy and baby. ...Read more
