Being pregnant is far from easy. There are tons of changes, both emotionally and physically, that a woman must endure while pregnant. It’s a difficult task to bear all of these hardships. Among these numerous hardships, though often overlooked, is the challenge of adhering to a strict and healthy diet for the safety of the pregnancy.
When a woman is pregnant, she must bid farewell to alcohol, caffeine, deli meats, hotdogs, smoked seafood (or seafood in general), soft cheeses, unpasteurized milk/juice, raw meat and eggs, etc. It’s quite a daunting responsibility that a pregnant woman must bear.
While mothers-to-be are dealing with their pregnant diets and bodies, their partners are living it up and eating whatever they please—whenever they please. It’s almost unfair for one party to enjoy while the other one suffers. That’s why BuzzFeed Yellow asked four men to take on the challenge of following to the pregnant diet.
The results certainly put the challenge of being pregnant in perspective. The daily routines and dietary mainstays for these men drastically changed and allowed them to see just how hard mommies everywhere have it!
Even though they attempted this daring feat for only two weeks, their struggles were very real!
