Linda asks…

I have a friend that is pregnant but interested in slimming healthily; any tips?

My friend would like to do the diet as promoted by ‘slimming world’. However due to circumstances she can only do it online as oppose to go to the meetings. Being pregnant won’t allow her to do the diet online however this company does allow pregnant women to follow the diet if they go to the meetings. This isn’t possible, so I was wondering whether anyone had any experience either doing ‘slimming world’ whilst pregnant and could give some of the secrets away or anyone who managed to slim naturally during pregnancy? Any tips and success stories would be helpful. There is no question of this not being a healthy venture so there is no need for concern.

Power Health Tips answers:

Advice from experts now a days is that if you eat your regular pre pregnancy caloric amount, then your pregnancy weight should level off at about 12 to 15 lbs before birth. Thats only if you are OVERWEIGHT to begin with. If she cuts back on the salt, fat and sugar, she should be able to have a healthy pregnancy with minimal weight gain. She should see a nutritionist. I did when I was pregnant with my son. Very informative. I hate when people think that if pregnant you should pig out and eat whatever you want whenever you want. Putting on too much weight during pregnancy can be just as bad as putting on too little! She should have her doc and nutritionist work together.
