I eat clean, not overeating, I still exercise hard 3x wk. Why have I gained 50 lbs & I'm 7 mths pregnant?


Posted by *

I started out fairly lean- 19% body fat. In one month I gained 17 lbs. I dont understand. My trainer said its hormones, is that possible?

Yup... the increase of hormones needed to sustain a healthy pregnancy does have the side effect of putting on weight.
