How to over-recover during pregnancy
How not to recover during pregnancy to such an extent that after giving birth, getting rid of extra pounds will be very difficult? And why do some future mothers gain weight heavily, while others are insignificant? Does it depend on the diet or on any other factors?
To begin with, you need to know how much you get with pregnancy - this figure by medical standards is 10-12 kilograms. These pounds are made up of the weight of the baby itself, the placenta, amniotic fluid, mammary glands (which increase during pregnancy), and a few kilograms are deposited in the abdomen and hips - this is the so-called strategic reserve. Nature thus takes care of the baby not starving, if his mother starves (nutrients can be extracted from these fat deposits for some time). That's why all are recovering during pregnancy - only who is more, and who is less.
So, how can you not get over the norm? Surely, you know that every meal and every single product has its own calorie - the energy value, and the higher it is, and the more of these foods you eat, the more gains weight (assuming a lack of physical activity). So, in the first trimester of pregnancy calorie daily diet expectant mother should be around 2000 kcal in the second trimester - 500 calories more in the third by 500 calories more. Thus, the caloric content of a pregnant woman's diet is not much different from the average for a larger party. And certainly does not confirm the myth that a pregnant woman should eat for two.
And how to know the calorie content of dishes, so that after childbirth do not complain how greatly recovered during pregnancy? To do this, you can use special calorie labels (for choosing a diet), but even when buying, you will not be able to view labels (they also always indicate the energy value per 100 g of product). The most "valuable" products are butter and sunflower oil, flour products containing fats, etc. But this does not mean that high-calorie products should be completely discarded, they should be consumed in moderate amounts. Well, from harmful and useless, like sweet soda water and chips can be completely abandoned for the sake of the health of the baby and his own figure.
The weight of the future mother is measured at each visit to the women's consultation after registration for pregnancy. There are average values of weight gain, followed by doctors. If the increase is higher than normal and this is due to banal overeating (this can happen, for example, after New Year holidays), they can just recommend a few "lighten up" their diet, arrange an apple unloading day. If the weight has increased suddenly and much (1 or more kg per week), the doctor may suspect a dropsy in the pregnant woman - when the fluid is retained in the body due to problems with the kidneys. And with this pathology, there may be no visible edema (they may be hidden). This, most often, is treated in a hospital.
The weight grows at the highest rates in the third trimester, and then, these rates should not be more than 300 g per week. If the woman has strongly recovered during pregnancy, it may be awaited and complications of cardiovascular diseases. If the weight does not exceed the allowed norms (10-12 kg), weight loss will be rapid. Immediately after childbirth and within 5-7 days, 5-7 kilograms go away. The rest - for 1-3 months even with small physical exertion (washing, cooking, cleaning, caring for the baby, etc.).
In general, to think about how not to recover during pregnancy and monitor their diet needs from the earliest of its terms. A young mother just has to be slim and beautiful!
