You can get healthy carbohydrates from whole grain, high-fiber, dairy, starchy, and other foods, such as: • Whole wheat bread, pasta, noodles, whole grain cereals • Potatoes, legumes • Quinoa, couscous, buckwheat • Low-fat milk, yogurt • Vegetables and fruit Eat Frequently: You should aim to consume three meals and two to four snacks each day. That means eating every 2. 5 to 3 hours. In addition, you should aim to consume about the same amount of carbohydrates with every meal and snack, for a total of about twelve or more servings of carbohydrate per day (one serving equals 15 g of carbohydrate). The total energy that you get from carbs should be less than half of all the calories you consume. (For example, if you consume 2,000 calories per day, less than 1,000 should come from carbohydrates. One gram of carbohydrate equals approximately 4 calories, meaning that your carbohydrate intake should not exceed roughly 250 g per day. ) However, do not go on a low-carb diet and limit your carbohydrate intake so that it falls below the 175 g/day recommendation. have in mind that carbohydrates are essential for both you and your baby, so make sure you get enough—just aim for the healthy ones and eat them at regular intervals. Don’t Skip Meals: Consuming foods at regular intervals and with similar levels of carbohydrates will help keep your blood glucose levels in a normal range, without sharp drops or spikes, which is the goal of gestational diabetes management. Choose Healthy Fats: Healthy fats are those from plant and fish foods (avocado, salmon, nuts); try to avoid too much of the “bad” saturated fats that are typically found in butter, cheese, hamburgers, junk food, fried foods, and others. A recent study found that gestational diabetes is associated with high energy (calories) and high saturated fat intakes during pregnancy, regardless of prepregnancy BMI, so try to avoid consuming an excess of the “bad” fats and an excess of total energy (calories). Know the Glycemic Index (GI) of Different Foods: While research on the effects of low-GI foods in terms of preventing gestational diabetes complications is still mixed, some studies show that for women who already have gestational diabetes, following a low-GI diet can reduce the odds of needing insulin therapy during pregnancy. Additionally, following a low-GI diet may improve your glucose tolerance post-delivery if you had gestational diabetes, and it may aid in weight loss. Consume an Adequate Number of Servings Per Food Group: That means six or more daily servings of grains, beans, and starchy vegetables; three to five servings of vegetables; two to three servings of fruits; four servings of milk and dairy; and two to three servings of protein (fish, meat, eggs, nuts and beans). Eat Breakfast: When you first get up in the morning, your body is in a fasting state. It now needs a source of carbohydrates to ensure that your blood sugar does not fall below the norm. Read Food Labels: This will help you know how many grams of carbohydrates are in a given serving of food so you can calculate how much of a particular food you should eat to get enough carbs without getting too much.
