Just eat anything in moderation and exercise at least 3 hrs a week will likely keep you in better shape. ...Read more

You might be doing this already and have another reason for weight gain. ...Read more

Is it better to avoid high fructose corn syrup or limit sodium, calories, and carbs during pregnancy ?
