    Default Frequent Eating!

    Hi everyone since becoming pregnant I feel as though I'm constantly snacking to keep me going through the day! I am 10 weeks and my starting weight was 49kg which has since dropped to 48 despite my constant eating 😳 an example of my average day (today)

    Juice and sultana bran

    A milo

    4 vita weets and peanut butter

    A whole mango

    Vegetable pastie

    Up and Go milk drink

    Handful of blueberries

    Trail mix bar

    Pasta in white sauce with mixed veg

    Icecream



    With water throughout the day that's pretty average! I feel like it's a lot! Or at least a lot more than I was eating and more frequently. Is it too much?

    ❤️

    I don't think it's too much but I daresay you're probably snacking because the food isn't enough to sustain you.
    Do you eat regular meals? What is a normal breakfast meal like? What about dinner?


    Congratulations :-)

    Congratulations!

    I don't think it's too much. I had to eat roughly every two hours (had GD so it had to be very healthy options) otherwise I was starving.

    Are you vegetarian (I didn't see mention of meat)? If so, do you eat eggs?

    Maybe try to eat a bit more protein and/or low GI carbs to help you feel more full - chickpeas, beans, quinoa, etc.

    I'm finding at regular meal times I'm getting fuller quickly? But in between starving or feeling sick and tired if I havnt had a morning or afternoon snack lol Yes I do eat eggs often for breakfast just not on this particular day, also boiled eggs with salads etc.
