any1 know what is consider "Liang" food that we need to avoid?
Cos I been taking watermelon n apples n can't stop drinking coke, pepsi & cold drinks but I do drink yogurt drink, teh, ice Milo & other cold can drink.
I avoid some of the cooling food like, water melon, cold fizzy drinks and i was told i cannot take green tea too (btw,it's my fav beverage) so i stop taking my fav green tea for the whole 9months and after my confinement.. Now im taking them again,lol..
Water melon , grass jelly & teh very liang.. But once in a while in moderation are not harm..
watermelon, dragon fruit (not so liang as watermelon), (seafood seashell), crab, cold drinks, cabbage all this considered liang
if you want to drink cold drink, try not to drink those with ice, those inside the fridge one.. but still not to often also.
Orange and lime is not liang but will produce phlegm, esp next time you want to BF your baby.
Really? Can't eat watermelon? It's healthy fruit. When I was pregnant I always ate watermelon coz its cooling & watery. I also ate pepper crab, almost every nite for dinner. But my baby was born healthy, he's almost 7 months now weighing 8.5kg... My gynea also told me I could anything I want coz I didn't take vitamins esp fruits, veggies, fish & meat...
Nana: is actually more of baby airway like prevent sinus or asthma in the later stage. For me i try to follow the old folks rule coz my hubby have sinus problem n childhood asthma as a mother i also dont't wish my child to have a problem. N my mom loves to eat watermelon when having my brother so my brother have sinus problem also which our family history doesn't have it. But still is up to individual n also eat everything in moderation
eat everything in moderation =)
yup everything in moderate
the only thing that i 'kick' away is coffee...
i am a hardcore coffee addict..
initially in my 1st trimester i still have some craving but now totally no craving for coffee... hehe
I second with some of the mommies above- eat everything in moderation.We eat/drink to get a balance intake of nutrients which will benefit baby and mommy.
I am, too a hardcore coffee addict who can drink up to 8 cups (those from vending machines) daily but during my pregnancy, I had to cut it down to 2 cups daily. I also stopped myself from taking mutton - It's ok to eat lamb occasionally but mutton has more fats and higher cholesterol. Oh, I refrained from drinking iced milo as the sugar level is also higher.
