Here are a few healthier choices for snacks and meals if you have gestational diabetes: Fresh or frozen vegetables. Veggies can be enjoyed raw, roasted, or steamed. For a satisfying snack, pair raw. Gestational Diabetes Food Tips I think in general, the best thing you can do is focus on the whole, non-processed foods. So many processed foods have tons of added sugars and other ingredients that can spike your blood sugar.

The closer you can get to food in its natural form, the better!Most protein sources don’t have carbohydrates and won’t raise blood sugar, but be sure to check vegetarian sources of protein, such as beans and legumes, which can contain carbohydrates. Most women. For instance, each meal needs to be 25 percent protein, 25 percent starch, and 50 percent nonstarchy foods, such as veggies or salad. Here are couple of healthy options for treats and meals if you have gestational diabetes: fresh or frozen veggies. eggs or egg whites. steel-cut oatmeal topped with.

Lean protein: Fish, poultry, tofu and beans are healthful protein choices for women with gestational diabetes. “Protein will help you feel full and satisfied and may help you think more clearly when it is time to choose your next meal or snack!”. Tracy says. Nothing is off limits per se if you have gestational diabetes, but some foods will better help control blood sugar than others. Because refined grains like white pasta, white rice, white bread, crackers and tortillas will spike blood sugar quicker than their whole-grain counterparts, choose the whole-grain options. To keep your levels in a healthy range, you may have to limit carbohydrates (breads, cereal, fruit, and milk), boost your protein (eggs, cheese, peanut butter, nuts), and possibly avoid fruit and juice altogether.

Canned fruits and vegetables are other good choices when fresh isn’t feasible. As with frozen foods, you need to watch out for added sugars and sodium. Choose fruits canned in juice, not syrup, and. Hold the cheese, but add lettuce, tomato, pico de gallo and onion.

Add an order of black beans for 5 grams of filling fiber, 80 calories, 1.5 grams fat, 12 grams carbs, 200 mg sodium and 3 grams protein. TOTAL (2 tacos): 310 cals, 15 g fat, 4.5 g sat fat, 610 mg sodium, 32 g carbs, 9 g fiber, 13 g protein. Keep in mind that the foods that count as carbohydrate servings in a gestational diabetes carb counting diet are grains/starchy vegetables, fruits, and dairy.

Use this list as a guide to help you create healthy meals that work for you.

  • Domino ad right before video ����‍♀️Im a diabetic but not pregnant or planning to have a kid. Just wanted to look at the recipes. Im going for a vegetarian diet.

  • What about you? What sources or techniques have you found helpful for meal planning and diabetic eating? Leave a comment and share your experience. I would love to hear from you!

  • So so glad I found you!! I know this video is old, but I was diagnosed with GD at 25 weeks. I am currently 30 weeks and I feel like I’m failing at this whole thing. I can’t keep my sugar low whatsoever, and now I’m on insulin once at night and a pill during the day ☹️ your video has gave me an idea of what I can eat! Thank you!!

  • My doctor tells me it has to be under 120 I only had one for 143 or 135 and she wants to put me on medication �������� I’m 33 weeks.

  • I am a diabetic from a year and now i am 5 weeks,i am in insuline, i have thyroid cancer and have one right lobe of thyroid gland left over,which might be removed in 4 th month of pregnancy… does all this effect my baby..

  • How do we determine how much fat and protein we should have each day, and thus, at each meal, in addition to the carb number you’ve supplied? I am so grateful for that! I was recently diagnosed but given very little direction past the diagnosis. Thank you so much!

  • I have started eating the killer Dave’s bagels(I only eat half of a bagel) with the cream cheese, cucumber and tomato. I also bought the everything but the bagel seasoning and omg it’s such a delicious filling breakfast. I had the same sheets as you as I was Penn obgyn and MFM with Chester County Hospital for my last pregnancy in the very beginning. We lost the baby but I am type 2 diabetes now so I still use the carb sheets and love your tips even when not pregnant it helps with carb counts.

  • Hi, 175g carbohydrate for a meal or in a day?? The plan we got it says 45g in main meal and 30g for snack,
    We count carbohydrates according to the ingredients written as per serving quantity

  • Hi, I have gestational doctor suggest me to stir fried/ sauteed vegetables and then eat. Please tell me how to do stir fried vegetables.

  • Tip for less pain during your pricks. Pull on the tip of your finger. Rub very firmly, until the the tip of your finger has gotten much redder (this is due to increased blood flow to the area). It increases blood output and actually partially numbs the area. This will allow you to use a lower setting on your needle, which also reduces any pain. I use the smallest needle you can possibly get and my needle is set on 1. Its literally the BARE MINIMUM and it is way more than enough to get a proper reading. ������

  • I am going through but I’m not really sure if I will have to because I have to go to the doctors and take another test and I’m only 10 weeks so I hope and pray that I don’t have to but if I do you have definitely open my eyes to more ideas especially with the waffles and the raspberry even though I’m allergic to raspberries I can definitely substitute that with anything else I’m sure and I just want you to know that you are not alone I’m in Philadelphia Center City will University City and I just wanted you to know that I’m expecting in June I wonder When You’re Expecting congratulations and good work keep up the good work be merry and happy holidays

  • I just got diagnosed with gestational diabetes, im currently 29 weeks pregnant.. Kinda sucks. Portion size has to be so small. I only drink water as it is so that’s not going to be hard but im a sucker for burgers and fries �� I love steak n shake and wendys and now I cant eat that.. Thank God i don’t have that long to go. How far along are you now? Is the pregnancy going good?

  • These are almost ketogenic diet. Is there how much carbs needed for pregnant women of certain height or weight during gestational diabetes

  • I’m so happy to have found you. I’ve recently found out gestational diabetes and I’ve been trying to find recipes. Thank you so much for doing these videos.

  • I have a hard time what to eat. Because 90% of food, my body don’t put it down:(. So even i want to eat healthy because of Gestational, i couldn’t do it:(

  • Am currently pregnant and am also running a chance of getting diabetes, Did your diabetes go away after giving birth? I hope you answer me lol

  • Is it fine for your sugar to come out high sometimes I been checking my blood for two weeks straight now n it’s came out high 4times n I feel over whelmed cause I walk for an hour n eat what they say but it really makes me cry n overwhelmed

  • Thank you so much! I really need it some motivation to start my healthy diet, im not sure if you have a video with the products that you recommend to buy at Trader Joe’s or other stores, that would be so helpful!

  • You’re such a great mother already… The video was very informative and friendly. It motivated me so much! Bless you and your family ❤️

  • I’m struggling so hard to except this and I can’t stop crying every time I think about it �� I’m struggling so hard in life and being happy and I just don’t know how much more I can handle. I just feel so guilty like it’s all my fault.

  • You look so cute! A bit like the pretty yet brunette version of Tori Spelling. I just bought quinoa and some kale. I want and need to make it asap. I just baked some salmon last night but barely ate it and i over cooked the salmon.

  • So interesting to see what you ate in a day! I got diagnosed about 3 weeks ago and I got a mealplan from a dietician. I feel like I’m eating a lot more now than before ��

  • Hi.. just one quick query��.. if we starting the diet today how much days it will take the glucose range to come down?. Will it be on same day?

  • Omg I love you! I was diagnosed 2 days ago. It’s a very sad thing to have to deal with. I came across your channel by looking up gestational diabetes and I’m glad I found you. The food looks delicious! I thought I was going to starve. Thank you so so much. I got teary eyed, it’s the hormones lol

  • I heard in North America to stay away from bagged salads as they tend to have the most recalls regarding listeria or ecoli… is this true?

  • Stumbling on this video is a God send. I am vegan and diagnosed with GD today. I meet with the dietition tomorrow but scared to hear “limit carbs” as you know us vegans and vegetarians live off carbs lol. But this is the first video I watched, didnt even realize you were vegetarian at first but thank god. I can work with this.

  • Oh damn, being a vegetarian while on gestational diabetesust be really tough! I can’t even handle the fact that you can only eat certain fruits while on gestational diabetes, you literally only have vegetables and certain breads as okay meals. I feel for yeah:( maybe give up on being vegetarian for the time being that your pregnant and then go back to your regular diet when your diabetes goes away. I know that sounds discouraging but with gestational diabetes you have to make sure you’re full enough with your meals and I don’t think just vegetables is going to help. I have gestational diabetes and it was hard for me to keep my glucose down. I have to take ten units of insulin everynight. Walking doesn’t help, and my diet hasn’t helped with my glucose either. Sometimes I just wake up starting on a really high glucose number and I challenge myself on what to eat for the rest of the day. Gestational diabetes is so discouraging when you try your best to take care of yourself. Ps. I use my BF’s YouTube account. And I’m 35 weeks pregnant.

  • This is such a plus trust me I smile the entire time knowing that I’m not alone in this and I’m just ready to be induce this week to welcome my baby girl into this world

  • I believe it should be below 95 at fasting test and after every meal below 120. I am concern with the result which are above 120.. did your doctor or dietitian suggest the range? Could you please confirm

  • This is my last baby and I have had it before and now I have it again.I met with the Dietitian today.So I am hopeful I can get it under control so I wont have to go on Insulin and your braver than I am,I hate finger sticks

  • Six times a day?!?! Are they insane?? That sounds like a lot of work! If I do develop gestational diabetes I’m sticking to my 3 meals a day, I can barely eat all those times (like today I forced myself to eat my second meal because I know if I didn’t I wouldn’t have eaten enough calories for the day), but hopefully I never develop it.

  • This is so great We are planning a family & I’m doing ok however I needed motivation to change my meals. I know how much a child mean to us. So I will follow through. Thanks!

  • This is so helpful I’m pregnant and my sugar levels are up and down this motivates me to keep on doing things I’m buying the bagels

  • Hi. Interesting vlog. I like it…
    I am 4 months pregnant and my Dr. Told me I’m on the boundary of having gestational. My highest result was 102 that is after meal. And the before meal is 95.4.. My Dr. Said my post result is too high… But yours is higher. Did your Dr. Recommend you to inject insulin everyday? Thank you for your response… It will help me a lot.

  • no i’m not comfortable counting carbs. matter of fact i suck at counting EVERYTHING. i eat when i’m hungry and avoid stuff that makes me feel disgusting. that’s about it. i balance my foods every day and try not to overdo 1 type of food. i drink MAYBE 1 pop 3 days out of the week, and maybe 1 glass of juice 1 day out of the week…. yet i still just got diagnosed with GD.:/ i eat out ONCE a week, trying to keep eating out to only TWICE a MONTH, yet still got GD.:/ My weight gain is on track and so is baby’s growth, yet… here we are. I don’t get it. The diabetes wasn’t enough thus far to leak over into my urine the glucose has been at 0 as well as the ketotones, which i was told by a nurse i work with would be high if i had GD >> sooo I don’t know what’s going on for me to “have GD”. hopefully recipes like yours, Jess, will help me eek through the last couple months of pregnancy if the Docs are right, which I think they are erroneous IMO, but whatever LOL i’ve never been one for “dieting”. I don’t “Diet”. i CHANGED my diet entirely about 8-9 years ago, and eat intuitively mostly, balancing out types of foods & just not overdoing anything, never overindulging. over-eating 1 type of food makes me backslide BADLY, so “dieting” & “restricting” doesn’t work for me. it makes my cravings worse.
    Worst of all, most of the foods on healthy lists are expensive peanuts alone are too expensive much less healthy nuts. We have a budget of $90 and below on our grocery bill, which i try to stretch as much as possible, so always staying away from processed boxed pasta meals or what have you isn’t always easy. other than that, i’m not ALWAYS eating pasta, and barely ever eat bread. i don’t get a whole lot of veggies unless they are canned, same with fruit, because to have those on hand don’t always work outuntil now. Pregnant with my 2nd, I am CRAVING salads, but buying all the salad fixin’s is expensive too, you’d be surprised how it adds up. so i don’t do it every week. i just BALANCE.
    I’ve been taking FISH OIL as opposed to eating fish since so many fishes have mercury levels i’d rather just AVOID than worry. and i take my prenatal. i have NO other health problems, no problems with my BP and no other meds i’m on.
    anywho, i’m probably pre-diabetic/borderline more than anything, but i go to my ‘education class’ on monday & the OB on thurs after 3 days of testing my blood 4x a day.. so this should be interesting. i half feel like they are just trying to swindle me out of my money, i’m that borderline. my first glucose test, the Dr in the group i’d gone to, said it was okay to eat before taking it… WRONG. but still, 131 when the healthy range ENDS at 130 (literally) isn’t bad for having eating at 5:30 am, drink that drink at 8:30 and get blood drawn at 9:30 now is it? LOL Then my 3 hour test failed at hour 2 and 3 at hour 2 it was 1 point (only 1 point) above the healthy range, and hour 3 it was 5 points over the healthy range. Stillnot too bad considering. That test, i indeed fasted & did as told. I’m a stickler like that. Yet here I am with GD. i don’t get it, but whatever.
    PS my first son -i had NO GD, my wt was on track as was his growth, and he weight 5 lb 1 oz at 41 weeks gestation and needed inducing. had a C-Section due to “not progressing” (was only 2 cm for 24 hours or more). he was looking to the side, too which doesn’t help. and my pelvis was too small. so i’m getting a c-section THIS time as well simply b/c my pelvis is too small. in any case, i have a feeling this baby will be under or at healthy weight no matter what, because i don’t overdo stuff and DO eat balanced already, as much as possible anyhow, seeing as how with my son i ate out 2 out of 3 meals, drank 1-2 pops a day EVERY day, and DIDN’T get GD (I had him at age 33 and i’m 37 now). So the ONLY risk factors I SEE, are i was slightly over weight at pregnancy’s start & i’m 37. otherwise, everything i’ve done this time is healthier than with my son (who isn’t overweight, is short & skinny, & has a good appetite but doesn’t overeat & we don’t even ALLOW lots of carbs if we can keep from it, candy, not too many fats at all, and NO soda and NO juice. he doesn’t even get juice boxes. he only drinks water & milk (which i do too when i’m home).

  • So happy I found your video.
    I failed my first test. Will be getting retested again. Regardless of results I want to eat like this for the rest of my pregnancy.

  • So I was diagnosed woth gestational diabetes and I just can’t seem to find this possible while taking care of my 2 year old toddler.

    I am stressed

  • Great tips JessicaObviously I am not PregnantBut I am trying to lose weight by eating low carb. Great helpful info… I am terrible at counting carbs!

  • This video helps me alot! Didnt know about the exercise! And my doctor want my numbers of B, L, & D to be under 120 ����‍♀️ I’m 28 weeks and I feel like this video will help me do better these last few weeks!

  • Thank you for sharing your experience. I’m currently pregnant for my second baby and I have Gestational diabetes. Well I also have on my first one. Your video help a lot to give me more idea what to eat so thank you.��

  • I went and tried your coffee its good! Also copying your snacks! Tested high on my first sugar test, bummed me out, I have to go for a second test. Thanks for sharing.

  • Hi can you please help me I am 7 month pregnant and I have diabetes and every time I check it it’s high can you please help me please

  • Thank you for saying to steer away from grains and fruits! I feel like so many GD nutritionists are so out of date with their advice. I remember being told to eat around 60 grams of carbs a day with GD. All following their diet plans did was make my sugars go through the roof.
    The only thing that helped my GD was to eat very low carb/high protein.

  • Hello! Is it good if my friend lose 8kg in 1 month? She exercise 4 hours a day and eat 1000 calories, so it is healthy to lose 8kg in 1 month? Lol you look professional so I’m asking you, she is 16 years old 76kg and 160cm, I’m asking you because I’m scared that something bad might happen to her.
    I told her not to do that but yeah..
    Greetings from Norway!

  • Thanks for showing the blood sugar monitoring part. I just got diagnosed but haven’t been back to the doctor yet to get my orders. It was nice to see what that looks like.

  • My wife was diagnosed today with Gestational Diabetes so here I am… the worried husband doing all the research I can to try and manage it. This is our first child and this I admit is a little scary and heartbreaking because now my wife is considered a high risk pregnancy and she can no longer do the water birth:(

  • Thank you so much for sharing your experience and ideas with food. This is my fourth baby and I’m 27 weeks pregnant. My first time with gestational Diabetes. Your video is very helpful.

  • I’m currently pregnant and I just got diagnosed with gestational diabetes ��. In the morning I wake up with below what my doctor recommends. During breakfast I eat plain oatmeal well I add cinnamon to it. That’s it and I waited 2 hours like he said before checking and I came out really high. I was at 190 like how in the world did it go from starting off ok to just eating plain oatmeal and coming out soon high ��. This is torture for snack I eat a stick of cheese or an apple or pear. I eat what I’m suppose to and it still comes out high. Well at least the good thing is that I’m 31 weeks about to be 32 weeks Tuesday. So almost there.

  • Just wanna day thanks for making this, I’m at the end of week 1 and had 2 highs so I feel a bit upset because my diet is actually healthy but those days I had to grab lunch out because of work. I’m vegetarian so this was really helpful. The quinoa looked good. X

  • Thank you so much for making this video! I have just been recently diagnosed with gd and am doing as much research as I canyour video was super calming and makes it look easy! Thanks again:)

  • Easy to do in your forst pregnacy but on your second pregnancy and it comes back with vengeance and you got a toddler not so easy meal planning lol

  • This is an awesome video! I had it my first pregnancy and created a brand/blog based on that experience. If you have GD again, keep me in mind.

  • I’m 20 weeks and just diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Having a hard time making healthier meal choices and exercising especially when I also have plantar fasciitis. In any case I tried your quinoa and spinach recipe and it was sooo good. Thanks for inspiring me and making me feel I can do this.

  • I’m 6 months pregnant & just been told I’m a gestational diabetic ugh hating life right now none of this stuff looks or sounds good������

  • I am absolutely NOT comfortable counting carbs nor am I interested, so please help make it easier and less depressing for us. thanks

  • Thank you for this video!! I was just diagnosed with gestational diabetes and will have to change my diet as well. Your video gives me some comfort that I can take control of it.

  • Omg I just turned 25 weeks yesterday. Which I also had an appointment with my obgyn and has blood work done my sugar was 167 which scared me. Last month it was 120 and I’m having to go back Monday to see if I have situational diabetes… Yikes

  • New subscriber! ����‍♀️ Today I found out I have GD. I was very sad and bothered when I found out. Thank you for sharing your experience and recipes. I am feeling much more hopeful and positive.

  • This is my 2nd child and I got a call early this morning that my glucose test came back high and l needed to come to the hospital. I went in and the nurse said I need to do the 2nd level glucose screen so they can properly diagnose etc but based on my numbers she’s pretty sure that I likely might be diagnosed with gestational diabetes.

    I am little stressed out. I do plan to change my diet whether it is confirmed that I have gestational diabetes or not.

    I don’t want to go through the finger sticks.

    Thank you for you very helpful video. I will rewatch for meal inspiration.

  • If you want to get rid of diabetic issues and want to change to a much healthier lifestyle, then you can depend on this “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it). As I`ve see clearly, I discovered how fat impedes cells from feeding on glucose. With “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Search Google), I was able to stay away from the destructive effects of diabetes to my whole body, and eventually, demise…

  • I had GD. And my readings had to be 120 and under. And 95 in the mornings. �� i.m surprise of how many carbs u were able to eat. �� I had a hard time then my doctor thought I was starving myself because I was losing weight. And I was eating 4 meals and 3 snacks ��‍♀️ so maybe next time pregnancy i.ll know more. ��������

  • Hi, my 1hr after meal value is fine..but the 2hr after meal value is a little above the cut off.. any idea what this means??

  • 31 weeks pregnant…I’m so depressed every day, I’ve lost any sort of joy that I’ve had… feel like I’ve already given up so much. Dont know how I am going to get used to this lifestyle ������

  • Ppl usually take that prick right on the pad of their finger. Not on the side. But to each its own. Im so mad i got g.s. Too. I feel damned if i do and damned if i dont because i really didnt expect this when i eat pretty well and i walk a lot.

  • Some viewers have asked what they should do if they have been unable to lose weight after delivery. Here is Dr. Seely’s response:
     “Many women have difficulty losing their pregnancy weight. There can be a number of reasons for this. One common reason is that although the women are eating very healthy food, the portions sizes may be too large. Seeing a dietician or nutritionist can be very helpful in this situation.

    Another reason is that some women develop underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) about 6 months after delivery. Many of these women recover but some have long lasting underactive thyroid which slows metabolism and decreases the ability to lose weight. Women who are not losing their pregnancy weight over the year after delivery despite eating healthy and engaging in physical activity should see their care provider for advice.”
