Depends: If you are overweight then i would stress eating a largely plant based diet of unprocessed food. The majority of your diet should be fruits and vegetables and fish. You should exercise everyday for at least 45 minutes. Walking, prenatal yoga, etc are examples. If you eat right and exercise, you may not put on any weight or even lose some initially.
