Naturally pregnant women will experience weight gain along with the growth of the fetus in the womb. But this increased weight should not be excessive.

A new study from Ireland found that pregnant women should avoid foods that can raise blood sugar levels quickly, thus reducing the risk of gaining too much weight during pregnancy.

In this study, about 48 percent of women who maintained their previous diet actually gained more weight than recommended. While 38 percent of women who switched to a low glycemic index diet (GI) were not overweight.

This is because the sugar in the food is released slowly into the bloodstream, such as whole grains, whole grain bread and brown rice which has a lower glycemic index than rice or white bread.

The researchers revealed excessive weight during pregnancy was associated with the risk of childbirth through caesarean section, having gestational diabetes (egstational diabetes) and a higher tendency for obesity later in life, as quoted by Livescience, Saturday (15/09/2012).

The study, published in the September issue of the British Medical Journal, included 800 women from the National Maternity Hospital in Dublin. Known women who switched to a low GI diet tend not to gain excess weight gain.

Mothers who are pregnant indeed need extra calories from foods rich in nutrients to support the growth of the fetus. But pregnant women do not need to have thought to eat for two (eat for two).

Generally a normal weight gain during pregnancy is about 12-15 kg, and it is expected that mothers already have a healthy weight when in early pregnancy to prevent obesity.
