What are the benefits of membership?
i just got back from my 1st appt, and I forgot to ask what foods i can't eat!
I know about the deli meat, and fish. But what else? Is chicken OK? Beef has to be leather done doesn't it?
I will try to list everything I can think of here. Maybe someone else has some others. Be sure to mention it to your OB. He/she will probably have a handout for you.
No- swordfish, mackerel, or shark. Limit tuna to 12oz per week.
Nothing at all raw. Except of course veggies and fruit.
No cheese made with unpasteurized milk. This one really stunk for me because I love the cheese they serve with chips at Mexican places and it was a no no.
Strictly limit caffeine.
Do make sure all meats are cooked well-done.
