Due to the fact that a pregnant woman is now at home on maternity leave, it becomes more difficult to comply with diet and limit yourself, because the kitchen and fridge – are in the immediate vicinity. Yet, it is necessary to gather strength and to keep yourself in hands, it is necessary for your child and to preserve your own health.
Although the 31 weeks of pregnancy – quite an impressive time, try to plan your day so that you do not constantly sit at home when the desire to eat the piece of something will pursue. After breakfast, go on business, go to the antenatal clinic, for shopping, to the swimming pool.
Come for lunch and eat in small portions, it is better to get up from the table with a feeling of easy hunger. There is no reason to eat for two as a family can offer, and if intrusive thoughts about chocolate are overwhelmed – eat a small piece. Distract from thinking about eating by reading a good book, watching a movie, walking, or meeting with your friends.
Of course, there is no need to starve, if only you understand that you eat just to eat, even if not hungry, then it is better to eat something low-calorie and healthy, such as fruits, dried fruits, a handful of nuts.
In order not to provoke itself it is not worth buying and keeping an eye on muffins, biscuits, cakes, sweets. It is better to exclude fatty and sugary foods from the diet, giving preference to healthier food, vegetables, fish and lean meat, porridges and low-fat milk and milk products.
