I don’t know what it is, but around the holiday season there seems to be a lot more of a push to eat healthier and address those things about your lifestyle that you feel the need to change. It’s a strange time, too, because hello holiday dining is hard to say no to those vices. But, that’s the case and many are gearing up for the new year, which is peek time to re-evaluate your eating habits and exercise routine. Well, everyone except for pregnant women, right? Not entirely true — there are a lot of reason to eat better and exercise while you’re pregnant, but doctors are warning against following this fad diet if you’re expecting a baby.
When it comes to food and pregnancy, it’s a bit of a hard mix. You want to make sure you’re eating well for both your energy levels and health. Plus, and it’s a big plus, getting enough of the good foods is important for your unborn baby’s health, too. The same thing goes for exercise. Being able to do both during your pregnancy is a great thing and will definitely help you out later. You’ll be in better shape during the hard labor and you’ll likely find your energy levels returning to normal faster than if you weren’t eating well and exercising.
As important as it is to do those during pregnancy, it’s just as important to make sure that you’re doing that in a healthy way.
