Water, you need water. Try to add at least 4 more glasses of water to your daily diet. The rule of thumb for water is 8 glasses per day, and one extra for every ten pounds overweight you are. Fats, you need to know about fats. There are different kinds of fats. Some fats are better for you than others. A rule of thumb on fats is, stay away from hydrogenated fats. These are fats that solidify. They are in storebought cakes, cookies, crackers, chips and even in bran muffins. Read the labels.
How beautiful do you feel when you’re pregnant? All that stuff about how beautiful a pregnant woman is was obviously written by men! Take all the beauty treatments and tips in this guide, multiply them by three and maybe, just maybe we might feel a little bit better about how we look and feel. All kidding aside, probably one of the worse sides effects of pregnancy is “morning sickness” no matter what time of day you personally. You have to be careful about what you ingest. Try Peppermint any of the other “mints.” Brew a mild tea and sip it slowly. Believe it or not one of the old home remedies for nausea is raw or cooked cabbage. Sauerkraut is reported to be of particular benefit, soothing the intestines.
Choose fats that are polyunsaturated or fats such as olive oil. And, eat some fish to get some omega-3 fats. Carbohydrates - Are your immediate fuel source. An average is about 55 percent of your diet in carbohydrates. So, a rule of thumb is, figure your protein grams, get around 25% fat per day, and the rest would be in carbohydrates.
The heavier you are, the more protein you need the fewer carbohydrates you will need.
Fiber - work up to getting 25 grams of Fiber per day
Protein - averages about 20 percent.
Divide weight by 2.2 and multiply that by .8 to get the kilograms. For men, it averages as one gram per each kilogram of weight. So, a man would divide their weight in pounds 2.2 then multiply that by .10
Fats - try not to exceed more than 25 percent fat in your daily diet. 30is fine, too. That does not mean you can't have a junk food fast food hamburger... it just means that if you do eat that 55 percent fat burger that you are going to have to cut down on other fat-filled foods for the rest of the day to balance it out.
Make exchanges gradually. Suppose you drink whole milk...work down to 2 percent. Maybe replacing two of your cups per day until you can completely change over. If you are on two percent milk, work down to 1percent.
Add bran to your cereals for extra fiber. Do add it to your baking. You need to balance your diet with vegetables and fruits, too. Try adding different colors to your plate. Maybe an orange yam, and some green beans, to add color. The more variety of food colors bring more variety of vitamins.
Eat more raw foods.
Remember, exchange things, add things, and do it gradually and remember, live all things in life in moderation and soon you will be bouncy and vibrant and well on your way to living BEAUTIFULLY!
