The Ducane diet during pregnancy is, first of all, a protein diet, which includes the use of such products as fresh vegetables, fish, meat, bran.
Diet during pregnancy for Dyukan has its own characteristics, which consist in respecting the rules of rational nutrition. During a long period of bearing a child, all necessary vitamins and nutrients must be supplied to the body for proper intrauterine development of the child. Unfortunately, the phrase that a woman during pregnancy should eat for two, long since exhausted herself and has no semantic validity. As a result of many studies, doctors came to a consensus: the nutrition of a pregnant woman should be maximum balanced. Large portions and non-observance of dietary rules can lead to obesity of the future mother and have a negative impact on the fetus. That is why a woman who is expecting a child should think about choosing a diet that is optimal for her.
The French doctor Pierre Ducane thought of a food system consisting of several phases. Nutritionist stresses that if a woman already has problems with excess weight, then you must adhere to the third stage of the diet - the so-called "fixing phase", while refusing to starch-containing products. Dyukane diet during pregnancy is indicated for women who are predisposed to obesity and gaining significant weight during the previous pregnancy. Despite the fact that Ducane's diet says "Eat as much as you want", this rule, first of all, presupposes a reasonable attitude to food, as well as the quality of food.
According to Dyukan, once a day a pregnant woman can eat 2 slices of bread and 40 grams of ripe cheese. The weekly rate of starchy foods (rice, pasta, beans, peas and maize) should be only two servings. Among Dukan's recommendations on food intake: the abolition of "protein" Thursday and the replacement of "protein", the daily use of two portions of fruit (excluding grapes, cherries and bananas), the addition of various dairy products (milk 2% fat, yogurt, cottage cheese). Once a week, a pregnant woman can afford two "feasts," so-called. "Festive" dinner, which includes the reception of those dishes you want most. However, this means that the reception of such food should be one-time and in no case be transferred to a two-day zhor.
