FWIW I'm roughly following the Brewer pregnancy diet (supposed to help prevent pre-e...it's basically a high protein diet) and that says on average women who have done that diet gain 35-45lbs...also says you should eat salt to taste and eat quite a few cals (can't remember how many) so it in some ways is opposite of what conventional medicine says. From reading about the Brewer diet I believe gaining 45 or more pounds isn't a concern, as long as it is coming from healthy sources and not processed foods or sodas. Worked for me last time (didn't get pre-e) and I was at high risk for getting it with type I diabetes.

haha I ate A LOT of cheese with my daughter! IMO that's not a bad thing...certainly better than eating sweets because at least you are getting protein and calcium.
