ok, this is going to be long. I found this as a rule of thumb to eat healthy during pregnancy. Also, doesn't mean that you are eating healthy you won't gain weight, watch out for quantity (calory intake). With this baby, I have made a lot of changes in my diet. I'm even buying all my meats organic.
*********************************** Low Carbohydrates and Pregnancy
You’re probably as confused and tired as I am with all the carbohydrate craziness…the books, the grocery store foods, the restaurant menus, the ads, and the water-cooler conversations. This is called: “Please KISS Me” plan on carbohydrate control (Please Keep It So Simple for Me).
It contains only 3 simple rules: RULE 1:
Increase the following in your diet:
1. Fruits (2-4 servings daily)
2. Vegetables (3-5 servings daily)
3. Whole-Grain Products: bread, muffins, bagels, rolls, pasta, noodles, crackers, cereal, brown rice (6-11 servings daily)
4. Dried beans, peas, legumes (1-2 servings daily)
5. Low-fat and no-fat dairy products (3 servings daily) RULE 2:
Limit the following in your diet to 0-2 servings daily:
1. Fruit Juice
2. Refined Processed White Flour Products: bread, muffins, bagels, rolls, pasta, noodles, crackers, cereal
3. White Rice
4. French Fries
5. Fried Vegetables RULE 3:
Eliminate the following from your diet or eat only on occasion:
6. Sugary Desserts
7. Doughnuts and Pastries
8. Chips, Cola and Carbonated Beverages
9. Sugar, Honey, Syrup, Jam, Jelly, Molasses
That’s it! A simple, effective carbohydrate-controlling system to use during your pregnancy. You’ll reap the countless benefits of complex carbohydrates and fiber. Yet, you will be able to monitor and control excessive weight gain and experience appetite control. The result will be a safe, healthy diet to follow during pregnancy.
