Is Michael Thurmond System OK during Pregnancy?

Posted by sunny123 (My Page) on

I'm currently 3 months pregnant with my 2nd baby, and I'm gaining too much weight too fast! (again!!) Before my first pregnancy, I weighed around 180 and wore size 11/12... after 9 months, I reached 265; I had gained 85lbs!!! I had my daughter on May 2000. I managed to go down to 220lbs, until I got pregnant again on Aug. Since then, I gained 12lbs already!!!!!

I've read I shouldn't try to LOSE weight while I'm pregnant, but I really need to control my weight this time. I've heard good things about the Michael Thurmond program, and I was wondering if it is ok to use it during pregnancy. The idea of eating for your type is good, but I would like to know if it's safe for me to use it before I go out and purchase it. Also, if there's anyone who's willing to sell me their program (or a copy of it) would be great!

I got the following information from the Provida bulletin board from one of their "makeover specialists". Provida is the company behind Michael Thurmond's system

The 6 Week Body Makeover program does teach excellent eating habits and provides you with a terrific way to lose weight and keep it off in a healthy way. However, the eating program is truly not designed for pregnant and/or nursing bodies. This does not mean you have to forget all your new habits and what you've learned once you become pregnant, but your body will have different needs and requirements. Bring your eating plan to your physician and talk to him/her about what additional supplements and food you will need once you become pregnant.

Hope this helps

Sunny~ I think Certifiable said it best! Talk to your doctor.
