Researchers are saying that piling on the cals during pregnancy increases the chance for diabetes and high blood pressure. Basically, the data implies this: Don’t do what Jessica Simpson did!

You don’t have to watch TLC’s new show Obese & Pregnant to know that mamas-to-be should watch what they’re eating. Now, experts are saying that expectant moms should stick to healthy diets to reduce risks of having complications for themselves and for the new baby. 

Researchers from Queen Mary, University of London said weight management techniques have no negative effects on pregnant women and their babies, and that it also prevented complications like diabetes, high blood pressure and premature birth.

The British study involved 44 trials with 7,278 women. Their study, published on, also says that eating for two during pregnancy could leave the women with weight problems for life.

The study also said that babies will also benefit because they’ll be less likely to get stuck in the birth canal.

In an ABC News report, nearly half of U.S. women who are of child-bearing age are obese.

Weight gain during pregnancy is normal, but obese women especially should gain no more than 15 pounds. Women of normal weight can gain up to thirty, said to the report.

So the old adage isn’t true: Just because you’re pregnant, you can’t eat whatever you want.

Considering how wide spread this problem is, it is not surprising that there are many well researched nutritional and herbal
medicines available. Gurmar extract may help lower blood sugar
and protect kidneys. We indulge in highly saturated fats
and continue to eat food with very little nutritional value either out of habit or lack of knowledge.

Would you just leave Jessic Simpson alone? I don’t know what happened to make you dislike her so much (leave Nick perhaps?) but your constant jabs at her weight are getting old.
