If green is what makes you lose it, try fruit. Yes fruit has sugar in it, but it's a natural sugar, and if you are a person who moves around and doesn't sit idle all day, your body will use that sugar and it's better for you then granulated sugar wich mostly turns to fat. For losing weight during pregnacy, you need to be careful and not do it quickly, portion your food, try mixing whole grain pasta with the white pasta, or mix brown rice with right to lessen the dirt like taste every one complains that whole wheat nad brown rice have. As far as exercising goes while your pregnant you need to remember if you didn't do it before, you shouldn't do it now. Walk, take walks around the neighborhood, or your locale industrial park just walk at a normal walking pace.
