Q: Is weight loss okay during pregnancy?
A: It is not a good idea to lose weight during pregnancy. No matter how much you weigh, gaining weight in pregnancy is necessary for the health of the fetus.
Women who begin pregnancy overweight do not need to gain as much weight as women who have less stored fat.
Because the fetus needs a constant supply of nutrition, it is best to consume enough healthy and balanced food to gain weight at a low and gradual pace during pregnancy.
