More Qs about Brewer's Diet and preeclampsia
Day 4 of converting to the Brewer's Diet, blood pressure varies a lot but is about 120-140/70-80 and only 22 weeks pregnant. Brewer Diet based on this:
Some confusion I hope more knowledgable moms can help me with.
Protein: Brewer's diet suggests 6-8 choices of protein daily, and 1 oz of meat equals one choice, which has about 7 grams of protein in it according to what I could find online. At 8 oz a day that's only 56 grams, vs the 75+ grams also said to be needed to keep blood pressure down. Help.
Magnesium: Am I missing it? I don't see it in the Brewer's diet. Not much potassium either.
Lots of fruits and veggies are not part of the Brewer's diet according to this website- bananas, pears, apples- and there's so much food that there's not a lot of room left over for extras. Why?
So anyway, haven't noticed blood pressure decreasing any, but I've only been on for 4 days and I didn't have any whole grain -closest substitute until today has been split wheat bread. Took an espom salt bath too, time for baths are not easy to come by.
And an interesting tidbit: I had a Chipotle's burrito as a treat. About 60 grams of protein and over 2000mg of sodium in my burrito.
