Is It Safe To Juice Fast Whilst Pregnant?

I get asked a lot if it is safe to juice fast whilst pregnant. Juice fasting has so many benefits, but there are some situations where caution and consideration are necessary, pregnancy and breastfeeding being two examples.

I do not recommend doing a complete fast during pregnancy, or whilst breastfeeding because it is a really sensitive period of life. The food that you eat daily during this time can be emotionally satiating as well, so you should feel free to enjoy it.

Alternatives To Juice Fasting To Super Nourish Yourself

Instead of doing a complete fast, a better idea is to include heaps of nourishing, cold-pressed juices into your daily lifestyle, and some smoothies too. Choose fresh fruits and vegetables, preferably organic, and basically just go into super health eating mode!

You can begin your mornings with lighter foods like fresh fruits, and then have something more solid in the afternoon, followed by steamed vegetables or soups for dinner. Still satiate yourself emotionally with some foods you love, so you have a good balance.

Once you are done with the whole process of pregnancy and breastfeeding, you will have the rest of your life to fast in order to get more energy, feel better and heal yourselves without potentially causing your breast milk to stop. If interested, you can read about some benefits of breastfeeding in my article Breastfeed Babies Have Less Risk Of Health Conditions.

What About Intermittent Fasting?

Intermittent fasting is where you chose to eat between certain times – say for example 12noon – 6pm, meaning your digestive system is free the rest of the day to cleanse and have a break. This is perfectly ok.

Whilst fasting during pregnancy and breastfeeding may not be the right time, it is a great opportunity to prepare yourself for when you are ready to do some fasting. In my Heal Thy Self Express 3-day workshop, I provide all the tools and education you need to be the healthiest you.

This workshop also includes creating delicious, nurturing and healthy foods and learning to make your own natural self-care products, which can all be done during your pregnancy and breastfeeding period.

So, in a nutshell, I recommend you postpone fasting until you’re done breastfeeding. Instead, focus on adding lots of natural and beautiful foods to your diet. If you drink nutritious juices, have smoothies and healthy food while you’re pregnant, and continue to do so, all that nutrition is going to go to your baby, and it is going to be blessed.

Have a healthy day,
