It’s all in what you eat, folks, especially when it comes to preventing those dreaded stretch marks during pregnancy – at least that’s what Molly Sims has recently posted about on her personal blog.
The 38-year-old Las Vegas star – who recently announced that she is expecting her first child with husband Scott Stuber – claims that they key to stretch mark prevention comes down to nutrition.
“Stretch marks. As you moms out there already know, they’re very common during pregnancy and they’re not fun,” she writes. “While there are tons of uncontrollable factors that determine whether or not you’ll develop stretch marks (things like genetic predispositions, skin color and skin elasticity) there are a few things you can do to help prevent them too.”
“If you really want to avoid stretch marks, you should be taking preventative measures long before you’re even pregnant!” she adds.
Molly – who is working closely with Lori Bregman and her Rooted for Life program for mommies-to-be – claims that Lori had her begin a “diet full of good fatty acids as soon as [she] started trying to have a baby,” claiming that incorporating a healthful diet into your lifestyle, even before pregnancy, will help lessen the chance of stretchmarks.
So what should women be eating?
Fish oils, nut butters, avocados, flax seeds, and winter squash to name only a few. To see Molly’s complete list, continue reading her blog at MollySims.com.
