Nutrition when planning pregnancy

Proper nutrition in planning pregnancy

What do we call healthy and nutritious food?

First, we are talking about truly natural food products: fruits, vegetables, meat and dairy products. The best option - go to the so-called second honeymoon in the village to the grandmother, where milk is drunk from under the cow, and about the semi-finished products from the supermarket in general have never heard. But, unfortunately, such a luxury (with the presence of a grandmother in the village) can afford a unit. And what about the rest, who have to buy in the city stores, and even go to work from morning till night?

First, in shops, carefully study the composition of products and the shelf life of their products. Secondly, reduce to a minimum the number of preserves, semi-finished products, and also fatty foods. In such food, there is almost no vitamins, no macro-, no trace elements.

Now in your diet you just have to have foods that contain folic acid, which in the early stages of pregnancy helps to prevent defects in the development of the neural tube (it forms the spinal cord) in the future child. But it is necessary to adjust its intake into the body before the pregnancy begins. Therefore, eat greens and vegetables with dark green leaves, because they contain a large amount of folic acid. Let's list some: spinach, broccoli, parsley, cabbage, green onions, green peas, beans, lentils, asparagus, soybeans, beets, carrots, tomatoes.

It is also very important for the expectant mother to ingest other vitamins: A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, D, E. Find detailed information on the Internet in which products and in which how many are these vitamins, and make up your diet, based on the data. This is very important in the planning stage of the child, because the lack of these or other useful components can cause the development of various difficulties, not only with conception, but also with bearing the baby.

Another important point: when planning pregnancy, you need to watch to ensure that the weight of a woman kept in the norm. It is known that a woman with overweight is more difficult to conceive. With the onset of pregnancy, in which, as a rule, the weight increases by at least 10-13 kg. , excess weight becomes not only an extra burden, but also a serious enemy to a woman's health. That is why this issue must be resolved before the onset of pregnancy. Help in this proper nutrition and exercise. But, keep in mind: NO DIET! Forget that you need to starve yourself, trying to reduce your curvy shapes, because you will only achieve the opposite effect. Diets are prohibited, because they can deprive the fruit of the necessary nutrients. True, in some cases, unloading days are allowed. The spouse, too, will not interfere with watching his weight, because in obese men, as a rule, the process of spermatogenesis is disturbed.

To avoid difficulties with emptying, you should also observe a special diet, that is, eat every day at certain times. This will help to avoid constipation, which, when pregnancy occurs, becomes a catastrophe for a woman.

Some tips on nutrition during the preparation for pregnancy:

  • cook food with fresh food;
  • eat only freshly prepared meals;
  • well chew food for its better internal assimilation;
  • Do not combine meat dishes with bread, as well as other flour products and potatoes;
  • do not use coffee and black tea. It is permissible to drink these drinks once a day and then in its first half. Instead, drink compotes, fruit drinks and freshly squeezed juices. Men should not drink beer, because this drink reduces the number of sperm;
  • for refueling ready meals use vegetable oil of cold pressing or creamy (but not more than 30-40 g per day).
