I'm 30weeks pregnant my docter said I need slow down eating and eat healthier. What's a good healthy plan? How many times do I eat thru out the day?

I would personally suggest first. Drink as much water as you can ( I drink 4-6 liters a day) that will help you with hunger. Also, try eating small meals/snacks every 2 hours.. for example. Yesterday I had
8am- banana with peanut butter, granola and raisins on top
11- Greek yogurt with fresh kiwi cut up in it
130pm- I had some almonds and dried fruit..with some cottage cheese
4pm- carrots and broccoli
6pm- a bowl of frosted mini wheats
This is just an example what I eat/like food wise.. everyone is different. But, remember higher protein foods, such as meats and peanut butter will keep you fuller longer. As well as fresh fruits and veggies:) I hop this gave you some sort of idea and helped:)

I also havent been hungry during my pregnancy and I am 36 weeks now.. everyone is different. You can obviously have more snacks in between if you want but just make healthier choices:) def try drinking more water though..that will help in general and exercising..a nice walk at night time after dinner..good luck:)

Cut out sugar drinks and switch to water even if you have to put fruit in it for flavor. I started adding lemon & now I've been adding strawberries. Switch bread for wheat wraps made a HUGE difference in my world and back off carbs.
