Adrienne's Guide to Healthy Eating

I think the best diet consists of 2/3's fruits and veggies. Every meal should be one part fruit, one part veggie, half a part protein (bean, nut, lentil, or meat) and half a part grain. Even better are diets free of or low in dairy, gluten, meat and sugar (not counting fruit and veggie sugar).

If you are trying to lose weight, I suggest drinking at LEAST eight 8 oz glasses of water per day, cutting out as many packaged and sugary foods as possible, and eating a piece of fruit BEFORE EVERY MEAL (including snacks). Pre-loading with a piece of fruit means that as you start to eat your main meal, your stomach is already getting the signal that it is starting to be full (from the fruit). That way you are less likely to overeat during your meal.

Pregnancy and Veganism?

It is perfectly healthy to be vegan or vegetarian while pregnant. I was a strict vegan (and also on a low-gluten diet) which I was pregnant with James, and he was 8 lbs 7 oz, and 23 inches long when he was born and perfectly healthy. I was also prefeclty healthy throughout my pregnancy and gained weight right on target and had zero complications.
