Most of all during my recent pregnancy I was afraid to get better. For me it was just a phobia. I couldn’t even imagine that I would be even bigger. Every day I several times got up on the scales and controlled that all amendments were within the normal range.
My gynecologist told me that a normal weight gain for a pregnant woman is 10-12 kilograms for all 9 months. Yes, and I myself was well aware that excessive weight would harm me and my joints, and the future baby would not be good.
To keep my weight in the normal range, I periodically arranged fasting days. She used to do them one day before going to a planned visit to a gynecologist)) To God forbid, they wouldn’t scold me.
My hungry days
one. Kefir. The main product of these days I had kefir. Why?
– because I really love kefir, especially with cinnamon
– because it has very few calories
In addition, he helped the intestines to cleanse, relieved me of constipation, which periodically tormented.
2 Apple. Also these days I leaned on apples and vegetables. Considering that I worked in the office, the risk of eating harmful and high-calorie was very high. Some tea parties with cookies are worth something! Therefore, I stopped buying sweets, and filled the top drawer of my desk with apples.
Every time when I wanted to eat, but it was impossible, the fasting day, after all, I took and ate an apple, washing it down with green tea. So on the day I could eat as much as one and a half kilograms of apples!
The girls, subordinates, laughed that when the daughter was born, she would not be able to look at the apples, so I fed them with them.
3 Buckwheat. Also, buckwheat helped me a lot. I also ate it because there is a lot of iron in it, and I, with my low hemoglobin, needed iron.
In the morning I cooked two glasses of buckwheat, had breakfast with skimmed milk. And for lunch, she took buckwheat without oil and vegetable salad, seasoned with a bead of olive or sesame oil.
four. Vegetable. Excellent helpers in the discharge of your body – vegetables. I even in everyday life try to lean on all sorts of salads, and during pregnancy – even more so.
Sweet Bulgarian pepper, cucumbers, Chinese cabbage, parsley, onion and celery, cherry tomatoes, seasoned with butter and pepper – this is incredibly tasty.
As a result, thanks to this, I gained only 12.5 kilograms, which I am very happy about. I didn’t even have to change my wardrobe during or after pregnancy.
And what did you eat on fasting days during pregnancy?
