Once B and I found out we were pregnant, I knew it was necessary to bring in the professionals when it came to health and nutrition to ensure I was doing everything I needed to for our baby. Nutrition in particular has been a difficult process – and, I promise I will do a full post on that soon – however I know how important it is that we take this seriously, especially as a weight loss surgery patient.
After meeting with a new nutritionist, she gave me a 1750 calorie/day plan, which I started this week. I always love reading what others eat, so I thought I’d share with you what mine looks like on a given day… being brutally honest (!!) however difficult that might be.
