For a pregnant woman, during the second and third trimesters at least 70 spoons of healthy oil should be your target.

The fat you need to limit are the saturated and Trans fats. You can remember that the not so healthy saturated fat is generally solid at room temperature like butter, lard and shortening.

Look for a comfortable and hydrogenation for your product. Instead of eating primary saturated in Trans fats, I want you to enjoy unsaturated fats.
