I am 20 weeks pregnant and I started out overweight. I am 5'4" and when I found out I was pregnant I was at a weight of 165. The doctor told me that because I am overweight I should only gain 10 pounds for my pregnancy. I am now 173...which means I am up 8 pounds and only halfway through. I have read that South Beach is safe in pregnancy as long as you do Phase 2 and add a few things such as more milk and make sure to eat your fruits and whole grains.
So my question...have you heard of anyone doing this diet in pregnancy to maintain weight...not to lose it? And/or do you think it will work?
Thanks soo much!
