The next important and vital nutrient of the first trimester is protein. The main problem that Elena had during her first pregnancy was that her chicken, fish, and beef made her very nauseous and caused her to vomit all the time. The first recommendation is to divide your food into 5 to 6 meals during the day. The second recommendation is that you consume ice even if you chew it or cold foods as it counteracts nausea and vomiting.
Chewed ice, water with mint, or a little mint, water with chlorophyll, which is even more refreshing, can go down very well in your stomach. Also use lemon, lemon is a citrus fruit that can also remove or reduce the sensation of nausea, ginger infusions include cold electrolytes, toast or crackers.
Another key is that proteins not only come from meat or foods of animal origin but we find in proteins of vegetable origin such as soy, chickpeas, beans, lentils almost the same amount of protein as meat, so like this Like Elena, if you are having nausea during your pregnancy, with a little experimentation we can find you a delicious and stomach-friendly eating plan.
Now, what happened to Elena’s second pregnancy? An adult woman needs around 46 grams of protein a day and when she gets pregnant we will have to increase an additional 25 grams. If she plays sports we will have to increase 1 to 2 grams of protein for every kilogram of weight. If your physical activity is moderate, if you practice yoga, if you practice swimming, if you practice Pilates, your protein consumption per kilogram of weight is calculated at approximately 1 gram, but if you are a high-performance athlete, then we will have to adjust the proteins up to 2 grams.
