April 13, 2017

Pâté (even the vegetable variety)

If pregnant, you should avoid spreading pâté on your toast. This can contain bacteria known as listeria monocytogenes.

 

Pre-cooked hot dogs

If you are out and about and fancying one of those pre-cooked hot dogs with a blob of ketchup and mustard - think twice if you are pregnant. These sausages can be another source of listeria monocytogenes.

 

Salami/ Pepperoni

are advised against eating salami or pepperoni meats, These are quite different in that they tend to contain preservatives called nitrates which could be harmful to the developing baby.

 

Hollandaise sauce

this yellow runny sauce poses a risk of Salmonella so could be potentially very dangerous to a pregnant woman.

 

Tiramisu

The Salmonella risk, can also be found in popular desserts.

Tiramisu is one of these, along with meringues and mousses.

 

Tuna

Tuna can be eaten in pregnancy but just not too much. Ideally no more than two tuna steaks (140g per steak) or four 140g cans per week should be eaten.

This is because tuna can contain mercury which can harm the baby's developing nervous system.

Simple Exercises For a Fit, Fabulous Body 

 

Plank

A plank is a static exercise, which means you don’t need to move while doing it, but simply hold your body in the correct position instead. To do it right, follow the example shown in the picture and prop yourself on your elbows, forearms, and forefeet.

 While in this position, the muscles that keep you straight are being worked, such as the abs, arm muscles, back, and anterior thigh muscles.

 

 

 

 

Squats

Your knees and feet should form a straight line. When you are down, start pushing yourself up as slowly as you can.

 

Push-Ups

To do a correct push-up, assume the plank as the initial position, and then push yourself up with your arms. The most important thing is to keep your back, bottom, and legs in a straight line.

 

 

Abs And Glutes

First, prop yourself on your hands and feet so that your body forms a triangle above the floor. Raise one of your legs as high as you can, as seen in the first picture, and then lower it slowly and try to touch the tip of your nose with your knee. Return to the initial position and do the same with the other leg.

Midback And Triceps

Pull dumbbells up toward the lower part of your chest, keeping upper arms and elbows next to your ribs. Concentrate on squeezing your shoulder blades together until dumbbells touch your abdomen.
