Ways to Manage Weight during Pregnancy

  • Gaining excess weight during pregnancy raises
    your risk for pregnancy complications like
    cesarean section (C-section) and premature birth.
    Maintaining a healthy weight further reduces the
    chances of developing gestational diabetes and
    preeclampsia. What you eat not only affects your
    weight but also the health of your pregnancy and
    your unborn baby.

  • 1.Plan pregnancy when you are of healthy weight
    If you are contemplating pregnancy or trying to
    conceive, opt for a preconception appointment
    where the healthcare provider helps determine
    your current BMI (body mass index) and draws up a
    weight loss plan if necessary.
  • 2. Exercise regularly Regular exercise during
    pregnancy is important. Regardless of pregnancy,
    an adult female should have a minimum of 150
    minutes of moderate exercise per week. Pregnant
    women can continue with the same level of
    activity as before the pregnancy.

  • 3. Eat home-cooked food Consume food that is
    made at home and using low-fat cooking methods.
    Baking, broiling, grilling, and boiling are some
    excellent lower-fat methods of cooking. Foods
    thus cooked are healthier and enable you to
    maintain an ideal weight.
  • 4. Avoid certain types of foods Foods rich in
    simple carbohydrates (white bread, rice or pasta)
    and sugar (sweets, soft drinks, or other
    artificial sweeteners) should be avoided. Foods
    with complex carbohydrates and natural sweeteners
    are recommended instead.

  • 5. Keep track Keeping track of what you eat is
    a great of knowing the number of calories you
    consume. Note everything down in a journal and
    learn to look at the nutritional break-up of each
    food item you eat. This improves the quality of
    your diet and helps lose weight.
  • 6. Cut empty calories Weight gain during
    pregnancy is natural. Which is why the aim is to
    not stop weight gain but to keep it at a healthy
    rate instead? Cutting down on empty calories,
    eating nutritious food and avoiding junk food
    boosts your health, and that of your unborn
    babies.
