No: You should be eating a very well rounded, well balanced healthy diet for your health and your baby.

Eat right: Good fats such as olive oil and coconut oil are fine in sensible amounts. Eat a rainbow of organic vegetables and just enough protein. Eat complex carbohydrates, avoid sugars and limit flour products.
