Mediterranean Diet Reduced Pregnancy-Related Diabetes and Weight Gain

You can read the whole study at PLOS. The conclusion:

A simple, individualised, Mediterranean-style diet in pregnancy did not reduce the overall risk of adverse maternal and offspring complications but has the potential to reduce gestational weight gain [but not by much] and the risk of gestational diabetes [by 35%].
