    What to eat and do when you feel hot

    During pregnancy your metabolic rate increases by around 20 per cent. This means that, even when you're resting, your body will feel much hotter than usual. This will make you more uncomfortable than usual during the hot summer months. If the weather is hot and humid, you might feel exhausted because of all the fluids and salts you sweat out.

    Make sure you drink more water to replace all the fluids you are losing through sweat. Have as much coconut water, lassi, fresh lime water, and aam panna as you can handle. Remember to drink before leaving the house and to always carry water with you. Try our healthy and alcohol-free drink ideas.

    If the heat affects your appetite, try to eat little but often. To help food down, you could have a cooling side-dish to accompany your main course such as a raita, dahi vada, or freshly cut salads. You can even make your meal of a cooling dish like curd-rice with cucumber. In between meals, have freshly cut fruit from the fridge, especially juicy fruits like watermelon, pomegranate or melons.

    During the hot months, be extra careful when buying meats, seafood or poultry. Many shops do not have power backup options and with the heat, raw non-veg can spoil quickly.

    To avoid overheating, try not to be out at the hottest time of the day. Also, shift your exercise routine to an indoor activity. Why not try these cool fitness options to stay fit? Saunas and jacuzzis raise body temperature and are best avoided during the hot months.

    What to eat and do when you have acidity and indigestion
    At this stage of your pregnancy, acidity or heartburn and indigestion are common. Your stomach is becoming constricted by your growing baby, so digestive acid is pushed upwards. Also, progesterone slows down the emptying of food from your stomach.

    Eat smaller and more frequent meals to reduce the effects of acidity. It is easier for your body to digest small amounts of food. Also long gaps between meals can cause acidity. Spicy and fatty foods aggravate acidity so cut down on the chilli and oil if you are feeling uncomfortable.

    Try to leave a gap of at least an hour after eating before lying down. This way gravity helps keep your digestive acids and food in your stomach.

    Why cholesterol is important?

    If you have a blood test at this stage of your pregnancy, it might show that you have higher than usual levels of cholesterol in your blood. This is normal, and nothing to worry about. The higher cholesterol is there because it is needed in many hormones.

    You shouldn't try to change your cholesterol levels during pregnancy, and you should avoid foods that claim to reduce it, including those using added soya protein, unless your doctor advises you otherwise.

    Avoid constipation During Pregnancy:

    Constipation is common in pregnancy and it is easier to prevent it than to try and solve the problem. So, drink plenty of water (at least eight to ten large glasses a day) and eat fibre-rich food. A high fibre diet though good to keep things moving, can actually cause constipation if you don't drink enough water because fibre absorbs water. So, the importance of drinking enough cannot be emphasised enough!

    Keeping active will also help. There are safe exercises you can do during pregnancy like yoga, walking or swimming.

    Fibre is important and how to include it in your diet

    Fibre is essential for a healthy digestive system and to prevent constipation. It also helps to keep blood sugar levels constant. Fibre is derived from plant sources such as seeds, grains, fruit, vegetables and wholegrain cereals. Meat and dairy products do not have any fibre.

    There are two types of fibre, soluble and insoluble, and you need both in your diet. Soluble fibre helps you to feel full for longer and releases sugars evenly into the blood. Insoluble fibre prevents constipation by moving food through the body quicker, and carrying away waste products in stools.

    To increase your fibre intake, choose from the following:

    Mainly soluble fibre: apples, pears, bananas, berries, legumes like soybeans and peas, carrots, broccoli, oats, barley, pulses, root vegetables like onions, yams, potatoes and rye bread.

    Mainly insoluble fibre: beans, corn, fruit and vegetables (especially with skin), vegetables like tomatoes, green beans, cauliflower, celery, green leafy vegetables, lentils, nuts, seeds, wheat bran, rice bran, brown rice and wholegrain cereals.

    Speak to your doctor before increasing the amount of fibre in your diet. Never take supplements unless your doctor has prescribed them.

    Here are some simple ways of including fibre in your diet:

    • Add wheat bran, wheat germ or oat bran to the flour you use to make roti or chapattis and paranthas.
    • Have cereal containing oats (dalia), wheat bran or wheat germ for breakfast a few times a week.
    • Eat fresh whole fruits rather than drinking fruit juices.
    • Include a green leafy vegetable or a crunchy salad with every meal.
    • Choose nuts, wholemeal biscuits or fibrous foods to keep hunger pangs at bay.
