Well I have 5 weeks to get beach body ready and like a week before I catch the Effie hopefully. If I start the slim fast diet will that affect/hurt my chances of getting pregnant? And of I do get pregnant can I continue that type of diet through the 2WW?
You replace 2 meals with the slimfast shake thingy (which for me would be breakfast and lunch probably) and for your other meal you just need to stick away from fried things and cut carbs. You can still eat carbs just not a whole lot. You can also snack throughout the day on fruits and veggies and almonds and cheese and stuff. I'm not on prenatals right now but the vitamin I am taking has the recommended amount of folic acid which my OBGYN said was just fine until I got my BFP. As soon as I get my BFP I'm going to start prenatals.
I don't know much about the slim fast diet. I do know that dieting can impact your cycles and Oing. Just as changes in exercise, stress, etc. can impact it. I would think that as long as you're getting your vitamins, and that there are no crazy supplements in the stuff you'd be okay in the 2WW.

Ok...I think then I may wait to start the actual diet until I'm in the 2WW. I may just not do it all together. (I hate hate hate dieting...) Eating better definitely couldn't hurt and I totally don't mind doing that. I'll probably just buy some boy shorts and put a t-shirt over my bathing suit and call it good. After all, DH likes my big ole booty
Steph I think ít's fine, but I'm no doctor - but think of all the women who have ooopsie babies and aren't exactly the picture of perfect diet. As long as you're getting your vits and veggies/fruits, go for it!
