I need your advice on how to safely lose weight while pregnant.
The first thing to do is to not sit down on the couch eating a carton of ice cream to celebrate. The second thing to do is realize you are eating for one point one people, not two, and not use the pregnancy as an excuse to pig out.
Despite the increased hunger.
Around a third of the population thinks they are hungry when they are really thirsty. Drink water and other hydrating liquids instead of eating, especially if you’ve been throwing up.
That only tells me what to do after morning sickness. What do I do to lose weight the rest of the pregnancy?
Do not overeat, take prenatal vitamins to make up for what you crave due to malnutrition, enjoy small snacks to control stomach acid, instead of multiple full meals –
That’s more a list of what not to do to gain even more weight.
Most pregnant women will gain ten pounds for kid and placenta and another ten to twenty pounds for the extra blood vessels and support system. If you gain less weight during the pregnancy than that, you’ve actually lost weight.
So if I stay stable while the kid grows, I’m actually losing weight.
I could not keep it off after getting into the dress for my high school reunion, and now I have a new excuse for the expanding waistline.
You should focus on more activity without getting your heart rate too high to burn off energy, despite the fatigue that makes you want to stay off your feet.
I already have swollen ankles in addition to the swelling stomach.
Drink more water and less caffeine, and stay away from coffee and energy drinks; that’ll fight water weight gain that makes you puff up more than you have to.
Would I actually lose weight losing water weight?
So is almost everything else these days.
A better choice is limiting sugar and simple carbohydrates, which cause blood sugar fluctuations. You reduce your odds of developing prenatal diabetes and satisfy your hunger better if eating more protein and some fats.
And if I do not feel like I’m starving, I won’t eat as much. But the doctor suggested saltine crackers to control morning sickness.
So eat whole grain crackers instead, since you need the fiber anyway.
