Phaedra Parks is always thinking about her health. She tells People, just because she’s pregnant doesn’t mean she’s eating for two.

“Some people subscribe to the myth, ‘I’m eating for two,'” says Parks. “Well, not really. The other person is half of a pound. I wouldn’t really count that as an individual. It’s obviously a living organism, but something weighing seven pounds doesn’t really allow you to eat two meals. Doctors say you only need an additional 500 calories.”

Parks, who released a workout DVD a few months ago, says she doesn’t find it hard to keep her weight down. “I don’t count calories. I just try to eat organic, healthy food. I eat a lot of small meals per day. If I want something, I try to eat it in moderation if it’s something that’s not good for me. I don’t really have any cravings. The only thing I [craved] during my last pregnancy were oranges. I love citrus fruit.”

Well alright, Phae Phae! You can read about what else Phaedra does to stay in shape while pregnant on ESSENCE.

    My first pregnancy I gained 25 lbs water weight lost it right after 2nd 28 lost it right away but out of shape. Worked out and lost additional 35. More A** than before woohoo! It can be done.

  • Is It 5:00 Yet?

    That’s about right. I took a nutrition class and the textbook actually said only 300 additional calories are needed, but um………

    Good for her. That’s how it should be. Have the baby, then get back into shape.

    My first pregnancy I went overboard and ate whatever I wanted. I went from 120lbs to 170lbs! It took me forever to lose that weight. My second pregnancy I ate better and worked out and only gained 20lbs. Breastfeeding knocked those 20lbs off in two weeks.
