Staying Slim During Pregnancy

QUESTION

Dear Nutritionist,
I'm 42. I used to be overweight but managed to lose a lot of weight a year ago. Now I'm pregnant but I wish to stay slim. I intend to continue jogging and aerobics classes and limit my food intake during pregnancy in order to keep my weight down. I have a busy career and often rush meals. I drink a lot of coffee at work and a cigarette accompanies most of my cups of coffees. What nutritional advice can you give?

Is Decaffeinated Green Tea Okay During Pregnancy?

QUESTION

Dear Fitness Expert,
I am about five weeks pregnant and have given up caffeine. I have been drinking decaffeinated green tea every now and then. I have read about other herbal teas not being safe but have not seen any articles regarding green tea.

Is it considered unsafe during pregnancy, even if it's decaffeinated?

Thank you,
Jennifer
