Trouble gaining weight? - Page 2

post #21 of 30

Oh Avery, so sorry to hear that your dad was so hurtful! I cannot imagine my dad ever saying anything so cruel to me. Thankfully, it sounds like your husband is a good man!

 

As far as the Brewer diet, here it is: http://www.drbrewerpregnancydiet.com/id96.html

 

...and a nifty print out to put on your fridge to help you keep track day after day: http://www.drbrewerpregnancydiet.com/id89.html

 

The diet is proven to produce healthy babies and pregnant moms with little to no complications, such as pre-ecclampsia. :)

Oh my gosh.  I would pop if I tried to cram that much in in a single day.  It just wouldn't work.  I do actually eat similar foods most of the time, but not nearly as frequently as they suggest.

I think it will be a good guideline for me to know what is "normal" and "healthy"...growing up, our food was, shall we say, not exactly the healthiest. Like when we literally lived off pinto beans, rice, and venison for 3 years. lol Fortunately my husband took a nutrition class in college so he helps me know what to eat too...at least when I ask lol

Well, if what I just ate didn't add a good 5 lbs, nothing will. 

 

Four-Cheese ravioli with marinara from all the tomatoes I had overgrowing.  Yum!

 

(I actually ate seconds!  I'm so proud of myself!)

That sounds good!!! I'm gonna make pasta tonight too...but with white sauce.

I usually love cream sauces (mmm... alfredo!) but I needed to use up some tomatoes before they went bad.  Of course, I did wind up with a sauce covered toddler who fell asleep before I could toss him in a bath.  *sigh*

 

Oh well, tomorrow is laundry day anyway. :P

You'd be surprised though at how small one serving of a protein or whole grain actually is. I know its hard to imagine what a portion should look like since we're all so used to the super-sized portions in restaurants.  I graze all day long...keeps my blood sugar regulated that way, and I don't get nauseous or as run-down, and then I'm never overly full or uncomfortable,  just satisfied. :)

I'm down another two pounds as of this morning... the midwife didn't say anything about it.

We use a food scale a lot in our house (I have a child who has to have a very specific diet)  so  we are pretty aware of what a serving is.  I think we all just have such different appetites and metabolisms that what seems like a lot to someone might be a very normal amount to someone else.  It actually fascinates me.  DH eats a lot more than I do- and always has, but tends to have a very slim body type.  I eat a great deal less, and tend to gain weight easily.  My kids vary depending on growth spurts etc- much of the time, my almost 2 yr old eats more than I do- he's ramping up for a growth spurt again.
