Weight Gain During Pregnancy, and Weight Loss After Pregnancy
How much weight gain is normal during pregnancy, and will you continue to have weight gain after pregnancy?
How will the link between pregnancy and metabolism affect how you'll be losing weight after pregnancy?
Understand what causes excessive weight gain during pregnancy, and...
You won't have any problems with excessive weight gain while you've been pregnant.
Will you get fat by having children?
Whether you'll have weight gain during and after pregnancy is a choice, because it's totally within your control once you understand what's really going on, however...
Most women do have weight problems because of bearing children, and the reason is simply malnutrition. Strange but True!
The first thing you have to understand about pregnancy, is that the baby comes first. That's a "Survival Issue". Once you get pregnant, everything is geared for the survival and health of the baby.
If it wasn't that way, we would not have survived as a Species!
What does the Baby Need?
In order to grow properly and be born healthy the baby is going to need lots of Nutrients, Vitamins, Minerals, Enzymes, etc...
If you provide these nutrients in order to grow a Healthy Baby, no problems, but if you don't...
The baby will take what it needs from the mother's body, and if that happens, you're going to have "Two Problems":
1. You're going to be hungry all the time if you don't provide the baby with what Nutrients it needs, so you're going to overeat and have much more weight gain during pregnancy than you need to.
2. The baby is going to extract whatever Nutrients it can from your body, which is going to do a real number on your metabolism.
Now you have Two Problems!
First of all, you're going to have excessive weight gain during pregnancy, which means that instead of gaining the normal 25 to 30 Lbs, you could gain up to 50 Lbs or more, and...
The extra weight, is weight which will be very hard to get rid of after pregnancy, because...
Secondly, your body has been drained of stored nutrients, which means that now, you probably have a slow metabolism, so instead of easily losing the weight after pregnancy...
You'll probably continue to have weight gain after pregnancy also.
Heaven forbid if you get pregnant again.
The answer is very simple!
Just eat only healthy food so that you provide all the nutrients which your baby needs and you'll have no problems.
You need to have good variety in your diet, and just get the healthiest food that you can buy. That's a Win-Win situation, for both you and your baby, otherwise you both suffer, because...
Your baby could be unhealthy, and you could get fat for the rest of your life, or at least have a real hard time getting rid of the excess fat.
What's Normal Weight Gain During Pregnancy?
In a normal pregnancy, you should have a weight gain during pregnancy of about 25 to 30 Lbs or a little more depending on the situation.
Lets say that you give birth to a baby that's about 7 to 8 Lbs. Increased blood volume can be another 3 to 4 Lbs, and increased fluid volume can be another 2 to 3 Lbs.
Then the Amniotic fluid and a larger uterus can add an extra couple of Lbs each, plus larger breasts can weigh an extra 1 to 3 Lbs and the Placenta can weigh 1 to 2 Lbs.
On top of that, your body could store away anywhere from 6 to 8 Lbs of fat. (That's a survival feature in case of famine).
Add it all up and you could have a weight gain during pregnancy of anywhere from 24 to 32 Lbs, but that's nothing to fear, because very little of that is fat, and...
If you nourish both you and the baby during pregnancy, then your metabolism will remain normal, and you'll have no problems with weight loss after pregnancy.
What's Healthy Eating During Pregnancy?
This subject could cover many Volumes all by itself, but to keep it simple...
Eating healthy during pregnancy is no different than when you're not pregnant, lots of fresh fruits and vegetables (organic if possible), and stay off the "Junk Foods".
It's not Rocket Science!
Go easy on the meats, and especially stay away from the cultured meats because most of them contain lots of Sulfites and Nitrites as preservatives and these are very unhealthy for adults let alone your baby.
Read the ingredients in all processed foods for these preservatives also, because they are very pervasive.
Take Top Quality Supplements
Since most of the foods available in the supermarkets today, are very deficient in nutrients, it's important to take top quality supplements which your body can absorb.
Only about 3 to 5% of most Vitamin and Mineral Supplements available on the market today are absorbed by the body and are a total waste of money.
The same Super Supplements which we recommend to our weight loss students are great for when you're pregnant, because these are not weight loss products, but general Supplements, which...
Help people to become more nutritionally satisfied. If you're more nutritionally satisfied, you'll eat less automatically, and that's why people lose weight while becoming healthier.
By giving better nutrition to you and your baby, you won't have nearly as many cravings, and you'll eat a lot less junk. This way, not only is it better for your baby, but you won't have so much excess weight gain during pregnancy.
Don't Diet Whatsoever
We don't recommend dieting whatsoever, even for weight loss, but it's especially important that you don't go on a diet to try and prevent weight gain during pregnancy, because...
Your baby needs all the nutrients it can get in order to develop a healthy body.
Even if you're overweight, when you're pregnant is not the time to try to lose weight. Losing weight after pregnancy is the best.
Eating healthy and taking top quality supplements during pregnancy will help to keep your metabolism normal so that you won't have abnormal weight gain while pregnant.
Register for the Slim America Project!
Even if weight loss is not an issue for you right now, do register for the Slim America Project, because you'll learn how to eat healthier, what supplements to take, and just as important...
How to have your baby, without excess weight gain during pregnancy. That way, you won't have a problem with weight loss after pregnancy.
Your baby deserves the very best that you can give it, and you are the only one that is in total control of its Future Life.
