Weight loss during pregnancy

Since you are pregnant you should not be trying to lose weight,but should concentrate on eating a healthy diet to feed your baby appropriately. Pregnant ladies need about 300 calories extra a day. This should be the healthiest time in your life.  Walk daily and eat a diet full of fruits, veggies and protein. Avoid excess breads, sweets and fats. Remember that your nutrition will directly affect your pregnancy. Your are helping to grow your baby's brain. I would not recommend a slimming belt or any other method of weight loss. Good luck.
