What should my caloric intake be in pregnancy?

2000. It really depends on your starting weight. If you are at ideal body weight then you may need to increase your calories/day by 300 which is half of a very small peanut butter and jelly sandwich. If you are overweight then you should not increase your calories/day and focus on eating unprocessed diet of vegetables and fish.
300-500 extra KCal. Per day is all you need for your pregnancy. Caloric recommendations are weight, height and gender based. You can look them up online by visiting http://www. Freedieting. Com/tools/calorie_calculator. Htm. Add about 300-500 calories to that and that's the upper limit of your pregnancy calories. Basially if you're normal weight when not pregnant, you should not gain more than 25 lb.
