Guidelines for Good Health
Nutrition Now that you are pregnant, it is no time to diet. You certainly want to eat the right things and try not to gain an unhealthy amount of weight, but you should NOT be dieting right now.
You will need about 300 to 350 calories more per day than when you were eating just for you – about 2,500 to 2,700 calories per day.
If you are very thin by nature or if you are going through a multiple birth pregnancy, your doctor may even prescribe more of an increase in daily caloric intake.
On the other hand, if you are typically overweight, your doctor may advise that you consume more calories, but she may advise you to drop below the additional 300 to 350 usually prescribed for an average pregnancy.
You should plan to maintain a well-balanced diet throughout your pregnancy, consisting of lean meats and protein, fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain breads, as well as low-fat dairy products like cheese and milk.
Your doctor will probably prescribe prenatal vitamins for you. These are special vitamins compounded with the correct amounts of calcium, iron and folic acid needed by pregnant women.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that your prenatal vitamins will cover all the nutritional needs you have.
You still need to eat well!
