Not really looking to lose weight, just keep a grip on things. Oh and avoid GD! I am overweight and they are threatening GTT already (only 15 weeks) 'as a precvaution'

I like recipes from Anthony Worral Thompsons books esp for main courses.

For day to day eating I follow basic rules
Plain cereals, granary bread, poached eggs, soup, fruit nuts lean meats and salad

I am lucky though as my cravings have all been fruit based.
I added a few extra dairy products and am less strict.
Did you have GD with last pregnancy?
I showed as high sugar but passed my GTT ok. But did do strict GI in the days before the test!

Thanks. Will look at AWT.

No I didn't have GD. Had GTT last time but was fine. They are saying they'll do it again this time to be safe

Are you restricted to certain amounts at each meal? Do I have to weigh stuff?

it's more a lifestyle change, you change the food groups you normally eat, cut out a lot of crap.
It may mean changing your bread say, only eating one slice, but as you eat it with better toppings say penut butter or a poached egg, you do not feel deprived
