In this video, Dr. Berg answers the question about pregnancy and breastfeeding women doing intermittent fasting. He does not recommend intermittent fasting for pregnant and breastfeeding women because if there are preexisting subclinical nutrient deficiencies everything will be magnified. It is true that when you do intermittent fasting, the nutrient requirements go down but it is still not recommended because you need to make sure that the mother has all the nutrients she needs. Cravings during pregnancy is a nutritional deficiency.
