It is common knowledge that pregnant women require excellent nutrition, not enormous amounts of junk food. Otherwise known as sh$t, junk food should be consumed in moderation. There is even a body of research suggesting that overweight women should refrain from gaining any weight during their pregnancy.
"Women who are obese when beginning a pregnancy are, by definition, unhealthy," says study leader Yvonne S. Thornton, MD, MPH, a clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology and board-certified specialist in maternal-fetal medicine at New York Medical College. "To say that they should gain even more weight is counter-intuitive, and our study bears that out. Rather than focusing on numerical endpoints with respect to weight gain, we need to focus on making these women healthier by getting them to eat a well-balanced diet."- View More
After reviewing the previously stated research, I am not surprised that Jessica's doctor is concerned for her well-being. Furthermore, wasn't Jessica overweight when she became pregnant? Ironically, Jessica has always seen herself as a role model to young girls. How does being unhealthy qualify as "being a good role model?"
