You might have heard lot of pregnant girls hogging because they feel that they need to eat for 2. My doctor said that this is not right. My doctor also said that pregnant girls should eat only how much ever their stomach demands. The key however is that whatever they eat must be absolutely healthy and homemade preferably so its as clean/hygienic as possible.
MY DIET DURING PREGNANCY WAS AS FOLLOWS:
- Nuts - Extremely important and must be incorporated in daily diet. Too many nuts is also not good. As a rule, I ate the following everyday from the day I got to know I was pregnant:
- 2- 3 Dates
- 5 Almonds
- 5 Pistachio
- 4 Walnuts
- 10 Raisins
- 1 Apple
- 1 Orange
- Handful grapes
- Whenever I felt hungry, I would eat a fruit. I would also eat other fruits available in the market like watermelon, cantaloupe, custard apple etc.
- People tell not to eat papaya but my doctor told that this is a myth. However she did tell me to avoid raw papaya. I however was too scared and didn't eat papaya at all throughout my pregnancy.
- Cucumber - 2 medium size
- Carrot - 2 medium size
- Green leafy vegies - I tried to eat them as much as possible if not everyday.
