Two Full Days Of Eating

Two Full Days Of Eating + Workouts From The Week

I get asked all the time if I eat differently now that I am pregnant . Have I added more food,  cut foods outs, do I count my calories? So I thought I would do a post/ diary of two full days of eating just for you!

I am in the second trimester now and I am eating almost the same as I was before I was pregnant. I don’t count calories ( I have done the macro thing before! ) I eat a balanced diet of healthy foods and I eat when I am hungry. I tend to snack on fruits , hard-boiled eggs and veggies . I skip the processed foods as much as I can , pregnant or not.

Every now and then I will take a few days of eating with my fitness pal to see where I’m at , especially if I am trying to hit a fitness goal like gain muscle . When I used to track all my foods I was at about 2200 calories a day ( just for reference I was also between 115-118 lbs) Under eating is not going to help you shed extra pounds, in fact it is going to make it impossible to lose weight!! Please do not eat less than 1200 calories a day ! ( more on that another day! )

I am a pretty picky eating , I have never had deli meat in my life so that was not something I had to cut out while prego. I am also not a huge fan of red meat , I typically eat chicken and  turkey .

The only food I have been limiting while pregnant is whey protein . I have been drinking a shake with added protein only 2-3 times per week. Instead I have been getting my protein from foods and always have a protein packed meal after my workout.

Day one:

So much water !!! I pour a giant glass at night and leave it in my bathroom so I drink it right when I wake up before coffee . I try to drink as much water as I can all day. I don’t really drink anything else ( besides coffee ) I do like soda water, just make sure its sodium free.
