Is it safe to eat 1500 calories during pregnancy since I'm overweight and my new diet is healthy (lean meats, veggies, fruits, whole-grains)?

In brief: Depends

It depends on your current weight and the level of obesity.
You should talk to your Ob about it. As long as you take in the essential vitamins and have a good mix of diet choices, you should be fine. I applaud you in taking the initiative to maintain your weight during this critical time of your life. Best Wishes Dr M
