Losing Weight During Pregnancy YouTube Video
Read This Carefully

Before you view the video, please remind yourself that losing weight during pregnancy is NOT the goal. As you will see her explaining, she actually gained weight in the first trimester at an alarming rate. After her doctor told her that it was too much, she decided to eat more healthy foods.

This choice of eating more healthy foods eventually led to her losing weight while still pregnant. It wasn’t that she starting eating very little food or started to exercise excessively. Rather, she lost weight because of the improved quality of her food choices.

This is often the case when you hear of women losing weight while pregnant. They often start being overweight or gain too much weight in the first part of the pregnancy. Then when they change their diet to more healthy foods, the weight drops off automatically. However, you must remember that the weight should not drop too much or you may bring harm to your baby. Always discuss with your doctor first and know what your ideal weight goal is for the various weeks of your pregnancy.

The video actually gives some good tips on creating your own drink. Personally I’m not a big fan of beets so I’ll probably stay away from that, but looks like it just can’t be anything but healthy. Give it a try. It’s not too bad at all and she was right; it does taste better than it looks (I did put a lot of spinach as she recommended in the video).
