    Good morning Since you are pregnant, 80 kg is no more your true weight. It is now the your weight plus the weight of what you carry in your womb. Some weight gain is allowed in pregnancy considering the increasing metabolic demand and your tendency to eat more, but we are concerned if the weight gain is too rapid in a matter of weeks. You should discuss with your obstetrician, he will guide you on the correct steps to take to maintain your weight and that of your baby. Cheers
