Dear S
I am personally NOT in favour of these high-protein diets and would urge you to rather eat a balanced diet now that you are pregnant. Too high a protein intake can stress your kidneys which would not be beneficial during pregnancy. Please consult a clinical dietitian to have a special diet worked out for you and your baby. Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area.
