When I first discovered I was pregnant, I used my experience with nutrition to find all I can about what to eat when

Keeping the bad foods out of your belly is vital. The wrong foods can alter your baby’s natural growth while in the womb. These unhealthy foods can really mess up your unborn child’s developmental processes. These foods can also make you gain an abundance of unhealthy weight that can cause other problems like gestational diabetes.
I am sure that you already know that snack cakes and candies are unhealthy, but what about foods that are marked as health products? Yep, they are also bad for you and your baby. Let me tell you why! Well I can tell you that it’s not the carbs or the calories that’s hurting you. It’s not the moderate use of sugars or fats! It’s the chemicals and substitutes that can harm you and your baby.
So go ahead and take a look at the ingredients list on all of these foods that come in a bag or box and you will understand what I am talking about. Science is proving that these chemicals completely mess up our bodies. You want to learn what foods you can eat to promote a healthy pregnancy?
Make sure that you eat foods with only one ingredient. Trust me, when I was learning what to eat when pregnant I found out that there’s tons of them. Foods like: chicken, steak, fruits, veggies, rice, eggs, bacon, butter, coconut oil, avocados, and sweet potatoes. Make sure that you do not cut out your calories, and DO NOT eliminate carbs. You will do more harm than good.
Understanding what to eat when pregnant can help you keep off the unhealthy weight, and can also help keep away bad pregnancy symptoms like overwhelming fatigue & morning sickness.
