Eat Healthy During Pregnancy and Control Cravings

Pregnancy cravings aren’t just about wanting that big bowl of chocolate ice cream topped with dill pickles (which, for the record, we’ve never heard anyone actually wanting). The “cravings” are about that extra trip (or two) to the vending machine. The impulse to pick up something at the check-out because it sounds and looks sooooo good.

But these pregnancy cravings can be managed and controlled quite simply. A “craving” is nothing more than your body screaming at you for a little more protein, or a few good carbohydrates. Not many extra calories are needed, but eating the right things will go along way to providing you more energy and controlling cravings.

Yummmm. The nachos look amazing.

Meet Us Mondays: Dr. Joseph Love, M.D.

Dr. Love is a managing partner of the practice with a special interest in obstetrics and minimally invasive surgery. He is interested in state of the art technology and performed the first robotic hysterectomy at Troy Beaumont.

“That was a thrill and satisfying on so many levels. I knew this procedure could be safer and better, and I knew a robotic hysterectomy was going to be the standard in the future.”

Dr-Joe-LoveDr. Love also has a passion for teaching and was named “Top Doc” by HOUR Magazine in their annual survey.

“Teaching helps me learn, and I consider myself a lifelong learner. Things in our field change every day, and I love that. Everything we do is smarter and safer than it was 10 years ago, and it will be better 10 years from now. I want to be a part of making my field better. When you teach and mentor, you are reminded what it’s like to question things and analyze procedures with a fresh perspective.”

He is board certified by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and he’s a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Dr. Love attended Amherst College for his undergraduate degree and Wayne State Medical School. He completed his residency at Beaumont hospital.

Dr. Love has a wife and three girls he loves spending his free time with.
