Our expert says:
Congratulations with your pregnancy. As you are overweight I would strongly urge you to consult a clinical dietitian who will help you plan your pregnancy diet while making provision for your weight. Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area. Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of a low-fat, high-fibre diet which you could use, but you would need to take 2 cups of fat-free milk in addition to provide for the calcium requirements of your baby and yourself. Also click on 'Diet' and 'Eating throughout Life' and read all the articles on 'Pregnancy'.
Enjoy your pregnancy
