Should you drink slim fast while youre pregnant?
No reason why you shouldn't. It is full of vitamins and minerals. It should not be the only source of nourishment, one needs to eat a healthy diet.

Answer . Yes. Slim Fast is very unhealthy; it contains trans fat and a lot of sugar, both of which will make metabolic syndrome worse. . If you compare the nutrient conte…nt of Slim Fast to that of milk, milk definitely wins. What's really funny is that even whole milk has fewer calories than the same amount of Slim Fast!
Answer . As much as you should drink a day anyway. Drink as much water a day as you can, but make certain that you do drink at least 8 glasses a day.
Milk During Pregnancy Milk should be approached with caution, especially during pregnancy. Most dairy cows are treated with growth hormones to get them to supply to unnece…ssary demand. Pasteurized milk destroys the good bacteria in the human body and hinders the development of immunity. This is especially important for pregnant women because the body is so focused on feeding the fetus that the mother is more susceptible infection and illness. If you insist on drinking milk - cow or otherwise, be sure to consume high quality probiotics - not the junk found in Activa Yogurt, but the kind found in the fridge at the health food store, and make sure it is at least 20 billion plus per capsule. Also, if you insist on drinking milk make sure it is organic from a reliable source. There are far better calcium alternatives available that do not put expectant mothers at risk.
No! Please do not!!! Never smoke or drink while you are pregnant or may become pregnant. As a result of that your baby could be harmed! Your baby could have serious birth defe…cts or even die. Talk to your doctor. Answer Whatever you decide to ingest or breathe in you will share with your unborn baby. Always. There's no way to avoid it. None at all. The physiology is clear and there is no scientific argument whatsoever over this point. Not one person disagrees. It's important to make good choices because you're choosing for two. Just a little bit of drinking and smoking results in lower birth weight and an increased risk of a number of neonatal difficulties. Just a little bit makes bad things happen. There are medical professionals who can advise you and answer any questions you may have. They've seen people (mothers and their newborns) who've been down these roads before. They know what time it is. TIME TO QUIT !!
Slim-Fast is actually a brand of shake. You'd have to purchase it.
The active ingredient in slimming tea is usually caffeine and it is generally considered a bad idea to consume a lot of caffeine when you are breastfeeding.
I wouldn't drink it at all, because it's NOT good for you.
I've known teenagers to drink it.
It's mostly teenager who start, but it's NOT a smart idea.
It says you should be 18. But teens around 15 - 17 use it. If you want to be really careful, ask your doctor if your under 18. But I'm 16 and I have been drinking the shakes f…or a few months. It works for me.
Prenatal vitamins are a good supplement during pregnancy and lactation. Doctors also advise taking Folic acid beginning three months before trying to conceive.
It seems to prudent to know your reasons for drinking milk in the first place first. One major reason that many are to to drink milk whether or not your pregnant is that many …note that milk is a good source of calcium. Yes, this seems to be true but can humans utilize the calcium in animal milk?In any case you can seek info from qualified personnel such as a physician as the condition, age, health & lifestyle etc of pregnant women varies considerably. Why drink any milk other than human milk? Certainly this applies to babies & or toddlers. Though am not familiar with the benefits if any for adults, not surprisingly. I doubt many adults, if any drink human milk & would be pleased to hear about such. According to many modern sources in the literature, many people are allergic to animal milk to begin with. People don't necessarily need much calcium to avoid osteoporosis & other calcium deficiencies, but it might be more prudent to be more concerned with retaining what calcium you do have as it is of course, stored in bones & teeth. According to some very modern sources, drinking animal milk among other things, reduces the PH of the blood. Instead of being slightly basic, the blood becomes slightly acidic. To neutralize the acidity, calcium is released from bones thereby increasing your chances of developing osteoporosis! Animal milk was supposed to provide the opposite effect! It is this point that hasn't trickled down to many medical & health personnel. Discuss things with your physician & other personnel such as very qualified nutritionists. But evidently, many doctors might not be aware of the above info. I myself avoid animal products and am anything but frail looking. Maybe good idea to read about vegan & vegetarian diets and you can learn much about many nutrient rich foods & how to maintain good levels of calcium etc in the body. Just because certain nutrients are in foods doesn't necessarily mean that the body can utilize any specific nutrients. One thing still puzzles me though. From what sources do vegans & vegetarians obtain vitamin B12. This is naturally found in animal products. Also, does the body produce small but sufficient quantity of vitamin B12?
