Our expert says:
Congratulations on your pregnancy. It is not a good idea to try and actively lose weight when you are pregnant because most slimming diets could cause deficiencies to baby and you too. Because you are pregnant, please consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area) to assess your present food intake and to assist you with an eating plan that will prevent excessive weight gain during pregnancy, but still provide you and the baby with all the vital nutrients you both need during these important months that lie ahead.
Wishing you all the best with the pregnancy
