#BumpPower Diet

Hey Mamas!  Hope you have selected and purchased your workout DVD and are on the road to staying fit!  To go along with your new workouts I wanted to write a sample diet.  Diet is 80% of your fitness results and 100% important for your baby (and you!).

Meal 1: 3 egg whites and 1 yolk scramble with spinach and bell peppers. 1 slice of whole grain toast (sugar free jelly, or a little PB, or spray butter on top)

Meal 2:  Turkey, sprouts, avocado, tomato, 1 slice turkey bacon in a pita pocket with mustard or non creamy dressing

Meal 3: Grilled chicken on romaine or spinach salad with unlimited veggie toppings.  Non-creamy dressing.  I actually LOVE lemon juice as a dressing or a vinegar and olive oil combo using apple cider vinegar or balsamic vinegar.

Meal 4: Cottage cheese with sliced berries  OR Greek yogurt cup and sugar free chocolate pudding cup (separate or mixed)

Meal 5: White fish and steamed veggies or homemade turkey soup with loads of veggies (green beans, peas, bell peppers, asparagus, broccoli, corn, tomatoes)

Meal 6: if still hungry go for a protein shake or if  you have the munchies try some crunchy vegetables like celery, cucumber or zucchini (sometimes I make them bite size pieces so I can pop them in my mouth like popcorn :))

Additional Notes:

  • Always be sure you are drinking tons of water. It is a current medical recommendation to drink 2.2 liters of water daily.  I am sure you have heard of the “8 by 8” rule (eight 8-ounce glasses of water), which is easy to remember and is pretty close to the recommended 2.2 liters.
  • Prenatal vitamins – both before and AFTER giving birth.
  • If you are lifting weights it is recommended to take a calcium supplement as well, though you should check with your doctor first.
  • Vitamin C – your body is doing a lot these days, so our immune system can be lowered.  Taking extra vitamin C can help boost your immune system. I love the chewables – they’re like sweet tarts!
