With the development of economy, we pay more attention to nutrition during pregnancy, and many people will deliberately supplement extra nutrition after pregnancy. But every pregnant mother will face the trouble of gaining weight during pregnancy. Some pregnant mothers worry about lack of nutrition in their stomachs, and their appetite begins to increase. Some pregnant mothers are worried about being too fat because of loss of appetite and deliberately dieting, which affects the growth and development of the fetus. What are the benefits of reasonable weight gain during pregnancy?
Reasonable weight gain during pregnancy can be considered as providing sufficient nutrition for fetus and preventing malnutrition. According to the size of pregnant mothers, the indicators of weight gain during pregnancy are also different. The formula of body mass index is commonly used in the world, and it is also an important index to measure whether you are fat or not.
Pregnant mothers can calculate according to the formula of body mass index, and then determine the standard of weight gain during pregnancy. Reasonable weight gain requires pregnant mothers to adjust their diet and eat less cakes, biscuits, ice cream, milkshake, chocolate, butterscotch and other desserts. Do not eat high-sugar, high-fat and high-calorie foods such as fried and barbecued food, because pregnant mothers will soon gain weight after eating these foods. Also don’t drink sweet drinks, because these drinks don’t contain any nutrients except saccharin, pigment and preservatives. We should also eat coarse grains, which contain a lot of vitamins, plant proteins and trace elements, which is beneficial to the nutritional needs of pregnant mothers and fetuses. In addition, we should eat less and more meals, and pregnant mothers should reduce their food intake and increase the number of meals.
