Eating well during pregnancy

If you are pregnant you  probably have no appetite due to all that morning sickness, or you’re eating like there is no tomorrow!

Many people don’t actually know the real reasons why a healthy diet is key during pregnancy. If you didn’t have a healthy lifestyle prior to pregnancy then you need to start now.

Let’s get started – Your body goes through a lot over the 9 months of pregnancy, so your body needs to be prepared for all the symptoms. Your body produces pregnancy hormones that can make you feel weaker, it is very common for women to develop anemia or diabetesduring pregnancy, so it is essential to eat well, stay hydrated and take those vitamin supplements!

Can you really eat for two?

This is a myth that many pregnant women quote daily, yes you have to eat more as you are feeding yourself and your baby, but your baby is tiny and only needs 300 calories a day. So if you are thinking about eating another dinner, put it down and think again! You should only be gaining between 25 – 35 pounds during pregnancy – don’t go overboard! Yes, you probably see these celebrities drop all their baby weight in just a few months, but don’t be fooled, it’s not realistic and they have personal trainers and chefs helping them out every step of the way!
