When it comes to crazy cravings during pregnancy, some women have a thing for especially spicy food, while others go on a fruit kick. And some don't experience anything out of the ordinary at all. But for Kristin Cavallari, it's been all about the sugar!
Expecting her second baby this month, Kristin admits to E! News she "basically poisoned" herself by going overboard with the sweets while expecting a little brother for her eldest son, 21-month-old Camden Jack.
The young mama, who previously owned up to eating dark chocolate every day and also indulging in Coconut Bliss vegan ice cream, confessed:
I had a really heavy sugar phase there for a few weeks, and literally my husband had to cut me off of sugar, because I broke out the worst I've ever broke out my entire life, so I basically poisoned myself. My body was in shock, but I had that with Camden, as well.
Ouch! Sounds like it got really uncomfortable there for a while. Love her for owning up to it, though. We can't help but nod and empathize with Kristin.
'Course it's never advisable to go hog wild just because you're pregnant and your hormones are wacky (to say the least!). Unfortunately, the idea that we're "eating for two" can go to our heads and cause us to lose sight of moderation. But it's okay to accept that cravings do happen. No one's infallible! So there's no need to beat ourselves up for giving into them. Especially in a short-term way, a "phase," as Kristin puts it.
Ideally, we catch ourselves (or our partners catch us, as Jay did for Kristin!) before they get out of control and try to steer toward a healthier, balanced way of eating. Seems like that's exactly what Kristin did, and she looks peaceful, glowy, and well on her way to happily welcoming baby #2!
