Pregnancy Diet Tips: The Importance of Protein

Protein is a crucial part of your diet for your baby’s growth. It is made up of the amino acids that build your baby’s body, as well as strengthen and maintain your own.

Especially during the second and third trimester, which is when your baby is growing the fastest, it is critical to include enough and good sources of protein in your diet. Protein requirements for pregnant women can range anywhere between 40 grams to 70 grams per day, depending on how much you weigh.

Good sources of protein that you can have during your pregnancy include grass-fed lean meat, poultry, eggs, dairy products, fatty fish such as wild salmon, sardines and anchovies, and grass-fed whey, such as Protein17 grass-fed whey protein powder which does not contain any GMOs, artificial flavorings, chemicals or additives.

It’s important to do your research and speak to your physician to discuss what foods you should be avoiding during your pregnancy, and any specifications such as cooking and preparation of your meals and snacks. Certain fish, seafood, caffeine, certain herbs, alcohol, and any processed food with additives and chemicals should be avoided or eliminated from your diet during your pregnancy.

Some of the signs that show that you’re not getting enough protein during your pregnancy include weight loss, muscle fatigue, severe fluid retention, and frequent infections. If you notice any of these symptoms during your pregnancy, speak to your doctor and see how you can incorporate more protein into your diet.

Being pregnant partially suppresses your immune system, so not only is your diet important for your baby, but also for yourself. No matter which trimester of your pregnancy you are in, be sure to take good care of yourself through diet and exercise, take all necessary pregnancy precautions, and rest and relax as much as you can.
