What happens to you if you’re a vegan and go through a vegan pregnancy?
The 40 weeks of pregnancy brings along with it profound changes in the body.
Most women find themselves experiencing uncomfortable symptoms, and just some of them include:
• Morning sickness
• Heavy weight gain
• Stretch marks
• Back ache, etc.
My raw food vegan pregnancy
Prior to my vegan pregnancy, I was already following a high-carbohydrate/fruit-based raw vegan diet for 4 years. This means that I lived on a diet of fruits, vegetables and some nuts and seeds.
This diet has helped me heal my body and overcome fertility issues without taking any drugs.
Throughout my whole pregnancy, I stayed on a fruit-based and raw based vegan diet and led a very healthy and fit lifestyle. I ate raw foods on most days, and also added some occasional cooked vegetables to my mostly raw vegan menu.
How has this changed the flow of my pregnancy?
Well, my seemingly “protein deficient” raw vegan diet (which is a myth, of course) has allowed me to experience a completely different pregnancy.
No swelling, morning sickness, back ache, unhealthy weight gain, stretch marks and bloating was experienced during my raw-based, vegan pregnancy.
I engaged in a lot of exercise during my pregnancy, which included cycling and running up to 38 weeks, swimming up to the date I delivered my baby, weight lifting, yoga, pilates and aerobics.
