What do you think is the best type of diet to have when you are pregnant?

What do you think is right and wrong to eat when your eating for two? Is fish bad? Eggs? Soda? Sugars? Do you stay on a strict diet or do you eat whatever you want? What about those nastey cravings? What if your craving something thats against your diet plan? Do you cheat? Or do you eat the same as you did before your lil bun in the oven and just stear clear of really harmfil things like alcohol and smoking? I want to know how other women are eating while they're eating for there baby too. Tell me what YOUR pregnant diet was like.

  • i am just trying my best to get enough fruits and veggies, and protein. i don't have to try to get whole grains and dairy. ;) i also quit diet cokes because i believe the aspartame is bad in general, and i plan to never drink that again! if i want a soda i will drink coke. here is a link i found that i think is helpful. oh i don't eat fish so i want to get some walnuts. that's what i did during my first pregnancy

  • oh and i was just reading yesterday that eggs are good but to not eat more than about 5-7 per week because of the cholesterol in the yolk

    about coke, i saw a video that drinking 5 cokes a day can double risk of miscarriage, or 2 cups of coffee but i usually drink 1-2 per day not pregnant and now i'm going to TRY to just drink 1-2 per week. try... ;)

  • The Brewer's Diet is great. I always make sure I am eating protein and I lower my caffeine intake. I still drink coffee just not as much. My main cravings when pregnant are for fruits and veggies and protein. I noticed that I really liked peanut butter. :)
