So you need to gain weight but donít want to gain too much weight during your pregnancy right?
There are many things that you can do to improve your diet and ensure that you gain a minimal but healthy amount of weight during pregnancy.
Choosing right foods is important because you will be able to loose weight more quickly after delivery if you manage your diet during pregnancy.
So here is what you need to do during pregnancy to ensure weight loss success after:
Tip #1 Choose whole foods. Whole foods are foods that are dense in nutrients. Think wild rice, whole grains, and unprocessed foods. Whole foods donít include waffles and pancakes!
Tip #2 Add calories during second trimester. Eating for two doesnít literally mean eating for two. In fact during your first trimester your baby is about size of a small bean! Most women donít actually need to start adding 300 calories a day to their diet until second and third trimesters.
Tip #3 Be sure you get a serving of protein, carbohydrate and fat at every meal. It will help you if you break your meals into six mini meals per day. This will help rev up your metabolism. Next be sure that you eat some protein, carbohydrate and fat at each mini meal session. This will help nourish your body more completely and help prevent cravings later in day.
