Jessica Simpson is pregnant with her first child and she's making sure she's having the time of her life with it. She's believed to have gained already more weight than she should have throughout her entire pregnancy, and doctors warn her it's a certain recipe for disaster.
InTouch Weekly claims in its latest print issue (story via here
) that the star has gained more weight than is healthy for her – or the baby, for that matter.
Because she's ingesting too many empty calories and exercising zero moderation, she's at risk of developing gestational diabetes, says the celebrity magazine, citing experts who have never met or treated Simpson.
“According to a source, some doctors are equally alarmed at her dramatic weight gain. So much so that they’ve issued a stern warning: Eating too much junk food or gaining too much weight while pregnant increases the chances of gestational diabetes, hypertension and having a baby too big to deliver naturally!” InTouch writes.
Insiders tell the tab that Simpson is almost unrecognizable and they believe it's all down to eating too much under the pretext of the pregnancy.
“She looks really huge, almost unrecognizable,” says one such source.
“Jessica’s the happiest she’s been in ages, and she loves the fact that no one stares at her when she’s downing pizza or eating a tub of ice cream,” adds another.
Experts say using the pregnancy to indulge in unhealthy cravings is very unwise.
“Why would you deliberately sabotage your body with unhealthy, fatty foods? You’re not supposed to eat twice as much – you just need 300 extra calories a day,” nutritionist and author Jackie Keller says.
LA ob-gyn Layne Kumetz, M.D., agrees, saying, “The recommended gain for a woman at a healthy weight is 25 pounds [11.3 kg].”
Admittedly, Jessica has already gained twice the amount.
Then again, reports dated in December last year were saying that she'd already signed a deal with Weight Watchers
to become their spokesperson after giving birth.
They paid her $3 million (€2.27 million) to bounce back into shape, so perhaps Jessica has nothing to worry about when it comes to shifting all that extra weight.
