Starting a family can be a very exciting and an overwhelming experience – you want to ensure that it all goes smoothly, which is where the health, fitness and nutrition of the soon-to-be parents comes in.
Pregnancy Without Pounds was a very interesting read, and it was extremely helpful for my niece. She’s been having trouble trying to lose the weight she gained during pregnancy, so I decided to lend her this book as one of her friends told her about how helpful it was. Now she’s inspired to stick with the program and try not let that baby belly get in the way of exercising. As I’m writing this, my sister just had her baby, so congratulations are in order because that means my niece is on her way to losing those 20 pounds she gained during pregnancy!
Being a mother is hard work! Taking care of your child is like a full time job. But that’s why you don’t let yourself go, indulge your cravings, quit your fitness routine and literally eat yourself out of house and home! It’s a new class dynamic; you are now responsible for another being! A nutritional balance of food and exercise will make your pregnancy easier by giving your baby the proper nutrients it needs to grow while reducing your chances of morning sickness and other related pregnancy side effects.
Normal weight gain in pregnancy should be between 15 and 25 pounds and this can be hard if you are starting out or remain overweight while pregnant. If your BMI is 30+, you should gain between 11-20lbs, and if your BMI is between 25and 21.9,9 it’s recommended that you gain 15-25lbs. Those that are overweight before becoming pregnant also run a higher risk for complications during their pregnancy, including gestational diabetes and high blood pressure amongst other things!
