Calorie distribution

a. Distribution of calories should be three meals and three snacks. In overweight women, however, the snacks are eliminated.

b. The remaining calories should be distributed as 30 percent at both lunch and dinner, with the leftover calories distributed as snacks. With this calorie distribution, 75 to 80 percent of women with gestational diabetes can achieve normoglycemia.

5. Women should be encouraged to choose lean, low-fat foods and to avoid excessive weight gain. Obesity can cause excessive fetal growth and worsens glucose intolerance.
