    Default Join me in a Junk Food ban until Birth

    Hi All,

    Anyone interested in joining me in eating healthy until the end of your pregnancy and beyond?

    I've been struggling with daily binges and sweet food cravings and I want to stop before I get too far with excessive weight gain at full term.

    I'm going to start fresh from tomorrow (24/06) on a junk food strike. And only allow myself 1 cheap meal per week on Saturday or Sunday. That cheap meal can be anything from a bar of chocolate to a fast food meal, but preferably not so high in empty calories.

    Who's in to jump on the band wagon??

    I'm in, although I don't have a choice. I've got gestational diabetes and have to write everything I eat down and checkup sugar after every meal.

    But I've found I have stopped eating a lot of crap because of it.

    I'm due 7th December

    Yay, good to see you on board!

    I'm due September 18th, currently 27weeks.

    Lets make a pact to post our fall outs and try to encourage each other to get back on the wagon. I know I personally struggle with afternoon snacks and snacking on crap while the kids are in bed or when hubby eats junk infringement of me!! Time to toughen up my cravings...!

    I didn't want my homemade banana & apple bread to go waster so I shared a piece with my kids...oops. No more for the rest of the day.

    So far Ive had a beef stir fry with couscous, banana, uncle Toby's oat bran cereal with skinny milk. And black and herbal tea.

    For dinner I'm having veggie soup with spelt bread. Hopefully nothing else after.

    How was your day?

    I'm haven't cracked yet. The worst I've done is eat rock melon, which I'm not allowed to because of gestational diabetes but I felt like something sweet so it was either that or send dh for a crunchie
