The 30-year-old chef and Cooking Channel personality's Instagram photos are going viral for her honest depiction of what being an expectant mother really means to her: eating whatever she wants.

In the photos, Grinshpan, who lives in Brooklyn and also hosts โ€œTop Chef Canada,โ€ is shown using her baby bump as a plate while she feasts on double cheeseburgers and fries from Shake Shack, as well as giant frosted donuts, and greasy slices of cheese and pepperoni pizza.

โ€œWorking hard on that pregnancy bod,โ€ she captioned the photo where sheโ€™s taking a big bite of a cheeseburger โ€” a post that had garnered over 7,000 likes as of Thursday morning.

According to the National Institutes of Health, Grinshpan is not wrong to up her calorie intake with a baby on board. The agency recommends women consume an additional 300 calories per day after becoming pregnant.

"The baby coming and the baby being healthy is the most important thing right now," Grinshpan told SELF.com. "After I give birth, Iโ€™ll focus on probably eating healthier and lighterโ€”but being pregnant right now, Iโ€™m just trying to enjoy it as much as possible instead of worrying about weight."
