Pre & Post Natal Barre Blend Meal Plan

This programs Nutritional Plan is a little different and more of a guide because your doctor should be advising you specifically on what to eat and not to eat. What you can do is print this off or write it down and bring to your doctor to okay it.

The main thing to remember here is weight gain is 100% normal during pregnancy so don’t look at this as a diet it is a Nutritional Plan to make you and the baby(ies) as healthy as possible.

1st Trimester: During your first trimester you may not see an increase in appetite or weight and this is normal. I was most nauseous during this trimester so I didn’t gain any weight and I believe I actually lost some.

2nd Trimester: You should increase your calorie intake at least 300 calories per day.

3rd Trimester: Increase your calorie intake another 300 calories per day.

Foods To Avoice: Sushi, Deli Meats, Raw eggs, Soft Cheeses, and raw sprouts

Focus Foods to Enjoy: fruits, veggies, lean proteins, and healthy fats.
