Keto Diet Facts & Tips

Can breastfeeding mothers do keto and IF?

During breastfeeding, it's crucial to prioritize nutrient intake. Fasting may not be advisable during this time, but a healthy ketogenic diet can be beneficial. Ensuring you receive all necessary nutrients is vital, as this period is the second most critical time for the baby's development, following pregnancy. Deficiencies during pregnancy or breastfeeding can have severe consequences, including skeletal malformations, dental issues, and even impacts on mental capacity due to iodine deficiencies. Therefore, maintaining proper nutrition is essential for the health and development of both mother and baby.
