Fit Pregnancy: Eating For Two

Between the insane cravings and the nausea, the simple act of eating while pregnant can present many challenges. The concept of eating for two can be a bit dangerous, leading to weight gain that is difficult to lose while mothering 24/7. Since the old-school method of counting calories to track food consumption is back in style, you can apply this method to eating for two. Many obstetricians believe eating 300 additional calories a day is enough to maintain a pregnancy.

Concerned about the growing obesity rate and the fact 55 percent of women of childbearing age are considered overweight, the Institute of Medicine issued new guidelines for weight gain during pregnancy, their first update since 1990.
