There is a huge tendency to eat too much during pregnancy and lactation whether it is required or not. So, as per the progress in trimesters and cravings, a customized diet will be given. Also, appropriate weight gain is required during pregnancy, which needs to be taken into consideration while planning the diet. A specific diet for Gestational Diabetes, taking into account carb cravings will be planned.
Post delivery, breast feeding, your own hunger pangs due to feeding the baby, should be taken into account while planning a diet. Weight loss post delivery can be initiated but slowly, not at the cost of reducing lactation.
