advice on what I've eaten this week please(4 Posts)
I had my daughter almost a year ago. Lost most baby weight from breastfeeding for 10m but since then, and I'm not sure why, I have eaten a lot of high carb, high sat fat, high sugar food! I've always loved naughty food but I'm usually quite balanced.
Anyway I've now discovered I'm in early pregnancy and I've started eating properly again. I am not looking to diet as that is inadvisable during pregnancy but if I do lose a few pounds I guess that's a bonus as it won't have been lost through restricting myself. I also want to be able to bounce back quicker and lose baby weight quicker than before so if I set myself on a healthy lifestyle now then it's more likely to stick.
This is what I've had so far this week and I'm just after advice really. Am I having too much or too little of something etc.
MONDAY: baked oats (w/ 1 banana & 2 strawbs) cooked in whole milk with flax seed and a little choc shot.

SIDE NOTE: I've been drinking more water and I cooke with either olive, hemp or coconut oil.
Thanks for any advice!
Also you're allowed an extra 200-300kcal during first trimester of pregnancy. I eat when I'm hungry which is a lot lately!
It looks fine to me, much healthier and alot more food than I managed during the first trimester.
Are you supposed to cook with olive oil? I thought it made it toxic. (could be completely wrong).
don't cook with olive oil hemp coconut or rapeseed is best
