Using Food to Fight Pregnancy Cravings

18 Jan 2017

Cravings are a signal to your body that it needs something. The right foods and the right quality help you avoid cravings and excessive weight gain. It is a signal that your body needs something specific, and it is not saying it just needs more calories necessarily. This is important to keep in mind because you really do not need to eat for two. You only need to increase your caloric intake by 300 calories starting in the second trimester and 500 calories in the third trimester.
