During the two week wait I was eating whatever I wanted because I figured I might be pregnant so forget the diet it's okay to gain a few pounds. Now I am pregnant (4 weeks today!) I'm thinking I need to improve my diet and cut out or cut down on certain foods that are unhealthy.
Is anyone else trying to eat better, or were you already eating well before? Any tips for me?
So far I thought I should eat breakfast every day -which I wasn't doing before as I find it hard to eat early in the morning, so I bought some breakfast granola type bars because they are tasty, filling enough and quick to grab and eat. They contain sugars etc though so not the healthiest, but it's a start for me.
Also cutting down on sugary drinks I was having before, trying to drink more plain water which I used to mix with sugary fruit juices to make it taste better, so trying hard not to do that now.
And generally cutting down on sugary snacks like cakes, cookies, candy and chocolate. I need to think of some healthy snacks to swap them for, and I'm not a fan of fruit...
Oh also want to cut down on bread because I was eating a lot of that and found it makes me bloat and put weight on quickly, probably same for pasta and rice too, carby foods I guess. -just cut down not cut out as they are staple foods for us, especially pasta.
What is everyone else doing?
