Ummmmm. I would say you HAVE to take folic acid regardless of if youre trying to lose a few pounds. I'd be more concerned of the affects of not taking it than worrying about my weight. I'd take a pregnancy multivitamin if you're attempting a low calorie diet or youll be lacking major nutrients in no time.xx

Yep I have to agree Folic Acid is not an 'optional extra' when you are trying to conceive and in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
hiya sorry for butting in I agree with the other posters if you are actively ttc then take folic acid but my baby was a suprise and I didnt take it till i found out i was pregnant at 6 weeks and my baby is fine. Just take it as soon as you find out you were pregnant x

As far as I'm aware taking folic acid when you're trying to conceive is fine when you're doing Cambridge Weight Plan.

Of course when you are pregnant, it's not advisable to do Cambridge at all.

Good luck with both :)
