In today's episode we explore weight, diet, and exercise. We review the complications of BMIs outside of the normal range, the weight gain recommendations by BMI class, and considerations regarding supplements to reduce the risk of adverse outcomes. When discussing diet we cover everything from "how much should our patient's be eating anyway" to which supplements to be advising and which foods to recommend avoiding. We finish off with a review of the exercise recommendations in pregnancy - what are they and how do we get people to engage safely?
