Sugar, in particular, wreaks havoc on your body - whether you're pregnant or not. Refined carbohydrates like sugar contribute to belly fat, lethargy & fatigue, and even wrinkles. Over time, excess sugar consumption can lead to the development of diabetes. And if you're pregnant, eating sugar can make your baby predisposed to obesity & diabetes - and can lead to problems like gestational hypertension and preeclampsia for you.
Keep in mind that flours are also refined carbohydrates, so your body treats breads, pastas & pastries essentially the same way it treats sugar.
It's easy to avoid refined carbohydrates once you get the hang of it. And usually, the first couple of days are the hardest. For tips on keeping your blood sugar stable and enjoying the holidays without going overboard, check out my articles below.
