Frustrating Carb Cravings during pregnancy!
I am currently pregnant (in the 4th month now), and I am trying to be very diligent about eating healthy (whole eggs, grass-fed beef and chickens, cod liver oil, organic veggies and berries, full-fat Fage yogurt, etc).
My problem is that I am craving carbs like crazy! It's incredibly frustrating. What's even more frustrating is that with my first pregnancy, I detested carbs and sweets and had no problems staying away from sugar and processed foods.
This pregnancy it seems that the lower carbs make me feel sluggish. I have incorporated pumpkin, sweet potatoes, apples, and pears, especially after exercising (light to moderate exercise - no jumping around.), but I continue to have intense carb cravings and feel led to binge on sweets! Ugh!
I really really want to do what is best for my baby.
Can you offer any suggestions as to you I can try?
Thank you so much for your time and advice!!!
