In a recent Instagram post, former  Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson’s daughter, Briana Culberson, revealed that she had three miscarriages before getting pregnant with her third child.

Recently, Culberson and her husband started an Instagram page dedicated to their keto lifestyle and recipes. On November 3rd, Culberson opened up about her current pregnancy and previous miscarriages. Culberson shared a photo of herself showing off her bump on the Instagram page. In the caption, Culberson revealed, “My team of doctors have all told me that it is healthy for ME to continue the ketogenic diet throughout this pregnancy. This is my 6th pregnancy, we have had 3 miscarriages. This is by far my healthiest pregnancy yet. With my other 2 boys I gained way too much weight than I’m comfortable with sharing, it’s embarrassing. I had the whole ‘I’m eating for 2 mindset’ and ‘I’ll just lose the weight after the baby’, although it never happened.”

Culberson continued, “I’ve only gained 30 lbs this pregnancy and have only bought 1 pair of maternity pants and 1 pair of maternity shorts. Other than that I am still in my same clothing I was in prior to my pregnancy at my lowest weight. Ryan and I have been keto for almost 3 years. It’s become a lifestyle and we don’t stress over counting macros or calories.”

3️⃣7️⃣ weeks today I get daily questions about my pregnancy and if I’ve stayed strict keto. I will first start off by saying yes I’m a nurse but I’m won’t give out medical advice over Instagram. Everybody is unique and everyone’s health is different. I have a lot of health problems including lupus and a clotting disorder, among other medical diagnoses and am followed by a team of doctors at a university medical center that work well and communicate with one another. Ask your doctor if keto is right for you and your pregnancy journey. My team of doctors have all told me that it is healthy for ME to continue the ketogenic diet throughout this pregnancy. This is my 6th pregnancy, we have had 3 miscarriages. This is by far my healthiest pregnancy yet. With my other 2 boys I gained way too much weight than I’m comfortable with sharing, it’s embarrassing. I had the whole “I’m eating for 2 mindset” and “I’ll just lose the weight after the baby”, although it never happened. I’ve only gained 30 lbs this pregnancy and have only bought 1 pair of maternity pants and 1 pair of maternity shorts. Other than that I am still in my same clothing I was in prior to my pregnancy at my lowest weight. Ryan and I have been keto for almost 3 years. It’s become a lifestyle and we don’t stress over counting macros or calories. We don’t track anything other than our ketone levels using a keto mojo blood ketone meter. We aim to stay under 20g net carbs per day just by using mental math. For me personally I don’t want to obsess about what I’m eating or track too much because I will become consumed by it. I do my best to eat the healthiest i can at every meal. Focus on low carb/low sugar, eat veggies with every meal, and avoid processed foods. Yes every meal isn’t perfect and I’m not perfect, but I’m doing the best I can and I’ve never been healthier! This account is intended to share how the keto diet has helped our family and our health. It is not a place for negative comments or judgment, there is plenty of other places for that in the internet.
