Pregnant and in Wellness Phase
Does anybody have any suggestions on how to maintain weight while pregnant or should I say not go on carb overload while pregnant. I am looking to get pregnant in March and I have reached and maintained my goal weight for some time. But now I am terrified of gaining alot when pregnant. Any suggestions? can you do low-carb when pregnant?

I don't have any personal experience with it, but my best friend was put on a low carb diet by her doctor while pregnant because of gestational diabetes. If you ever read in the main low carb lobby here, there are people there who stay on their plans while pregnant. I'd ask your doctor about it and see what they say. You probably couldn't keep the carbs as low as the acute phase, but since you're in wellness you're probably consuming more than that anyway.

My daughters. Ob just suggested. A low car high protein. Diet. He says that she will nit gain as much that way. Of course right now she is a size zero. She certainly doesn't take after me!
