I have a friend who is in her 3rd trimester, and she was found to have GD. Now they have her on a diet where she only gets 1800 calories per day. She says on this new diet she ends up dizzy and lightheaded by lunchtime. I thought pregnant women weren't supposed to restrict their calories!!

When I am pregnant, I get about 2000 a day. I have never had dizziness or anything, it's just what I need. Is she sure the dizziness/lightheadness isn't just late pregnancy? From sitting to standing to quickly?

She seems to think it's from hunger, she has been very hungry on this diet.

That doesn't really sound right to me. A GD diet doesn't have to be low in calories, just low in carbs. I was probably getting between 1800-2000 calories per day, but I had to add in high calorie foods like avocado and lots of cheese, other dairy, etc. I never really felt light-headed, but I was hungry a lot.

During this last pregnancy they restricted my calories and carbs due to GD. I was limited to 1800 calories a day.
