Ways to keep fit during pregnancy to help “beautiful mother, healthy baby”
Drink enough water
Drinking enough water is essential for the body to stay healthy, and for expectant mothers, it’s even more important, especially in helping you manage your weight. Having enough water in the body during pregnancy helps to form the placenta. If you have trouble controlling the amount of water absorbed into your body, you should buy a large water bottle and carry it with you wherever you go.
Avoid the “eat for two” mindset
During pregnancy, pregnant women often find it difficult to control their cravings. However, you should not take in twice as many calories as you normally would. The problem is, during pregnancy, you can eat whatever you want, but after giving birth, you will have to lose more weight. According to research, you only need to take in about 300 more calories per day than you normally consume starting in the second trimester of pregnancy.
Eat the most at lunch
Pregnancy makes the body extremely tired and many pregnant women feel extremely hungry and at night. However, it is best to eat more at lunch and less at dinner. Sticking to a healthy and nutritious lunchtime diet, while a lighter dinner will make it easier to control your weight during pregnancy.
Make time to exercise
Being pregnant doesn’t mean you have to spend all day lying on a chair, on the contrary, you should do gentle exercise, suitable for pregnant women. Regular exercise can help improve your mood and keep your weight in check. However, it should be noted that exercise should not be too intense during pregnancy, subjects such as basketball, hot yoga are not recommended. Instead, you should walk and do gentler exercises.
Skip sugary drinks
In fact, during pregnancy, you will occasionally have cravings for soft drinks and fast food. However, these foods and drinks are not healthy for you or your baby. Soft drinks are low in nutrients but high in calories, if used regularly you can gain weight while the baby is not getting nutrition.
