Effects of dieting during pregnancy

Women who don't have children yet are apprehensive about gaining and losing the pregnancy weight. Expectant ladies are fixated on gaining the 'ideal' weight and 'right away' acquiring their prepregnancy weight after giving birth. New mothers are anxious and eager to lose all the weight gained and (possibly more)! But to achieve that, dieting is not the answer. Although weight and size are central to many women's thoughts but when it comes to starting a family, we need to make health our priority.

Dieting and being preoccupied with weight issues is not going to get you ready for motherhood. If you are a strong believer of dieting or were dieting prior to becoming pregnant, use this opportunity to reset your system to grow a healthy baby and become a healthy you. Get help from the correct sources; a nutritionist will be able to guide you on eating smart during the pregnancy phase and afterwards, and include an exercise regime specified by your doctor. Remember, your bloodstream is the source of glucose for your baby and if you do not replenish your energy supply regularly, low energy and light-headedness will constantly bother you. Eat three square meals or six mini meals with snacks in between to avoid this problem.
