Milla Jovovich’s Pregnancy Diet
“I’m gaining weight, which is fun. “My diet for most of the year has been for breakfast, four eggs with bacon, toast and butter, if I was at home. Then if I was at a diner, I’d have a Mexican omelette, a stack of pancakes and strawberry milkshake. “I also stuffed myself with cookies all morning, whatever was in the cupboard really, then I’d have a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts for dessert. I once ate two whole packs of coffee cake in one sitting!”
Milla did prenatal yoga while she was pregnant. Here are some of her thoughts on her prenatal yoga classes. “Besides sharing funny stories with other moms, it’s really given me a chance to spend some quality time each day focusing on my growing body and my daughter. It’s weird but when you get really busy sometimes, days go by and you realize that you haven’t really spent much time just focusing on what’s going on with you. So I needed to just create time for myself to just stop everything. Besides the fact that my lower back is killing me and it feels so good to stretch and get my blood flowing through all the sore bits! I highly recommend it for any mommies or mommies-to-be who might be reading this!”
