Pre and Post Natal
Studies suggest the following-
1. Strength training is an effective way for preventing percentage body fat increases and reducing ab fat in overweight and obese premenopausal women.
2. Resistance training twice a week may be associated with better exercise self-efficacy and improved physical activity outcomes.
3. Dietary and lifestyle interventions in pregnancy are effective in reducing gestational weight gain without any adverse effect on the risk of babies small for gestational age.
4. Other aspects such as a reduction towards the risk of pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes, gestational hypertension, preterm birth, and intrauterine death.
5. Diet in particular, significantly reduced the risk of pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes, gestational hypertension, and preterm births compared with any other intervention.
6. A ketogenic diet (high fat, no carbs) during gestation results in changes in embryonic (baby) organ growth. Such changes may be associated with organ dysfunction and potentially behavioural changes in postnatal life (mouse study).
This information signifies the importance of evidence based information on exercise, diet and lifestyle for pre and post natal women.
