How to explain you eat healthy during pregnancy without offending people? People get mad if I say no to food that I don't think will help my baby.

In brief: Healthy diet

I would suggest that you tell people that you have been told by your OB that it is healthy to gain about 30 lbs in pregnancy and that it is recommended that you exercise and watch your diet to meet that goal.
Excess calories are good for no one, including your baby.
