intermittent fasting in pregnancy

I am 8 months pregnant and I have started intermittent fasting to ensure weight loss post pregnancy. Is this okay?

Singdha my suggestion for you would be to not go ahead with this practice during pregnancy. There are certain risks of doing intermittent fasting while pregnant, specifically this far along. Premature delivery is one of them. But the main reason for you to avoid this will be the health of your little one. Also practicing fasting during pregnancy will have no effect in your post pregnancy weight loss.
