Product description

Product Description

Studies have shown that being overweight when pregnant can increase your risk of gestational diabetes and can also lead to health problems for your child, including childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes. In this practical book, the Low GI team of experts explain how to optimise your diet - pre-conception, during pregnancy and once your child has been born - to ensure a healthy baby and a healthy mum.

Part One explains the importance of eating a healthy low-GI diet before you conceive. Part Two discusses what to be aware of once you're eating for two, how to ensure your weight gain is healthy, the importance of blood sugars in pregnancy and why gestational diabetes is a big deal. Part Three highlights the importance of breastfeeding and introducing solids while Part Four shows you how to put everything into practice with the eight guiding principles of the low-GI diet for pregnancy, including exercise tips, and will help you select the best foods to eat, and the ones to avoid. Part Five, the final section, complements the earlier sections with 50 quick and easy recipes, making this book the ideal resource for anyone who wants to enjoy the benefits of a low-GI lifestyle.

About the Author

PROF JENNIE BRAND-MILLER, one of the world s foremost authorities on carbohydrates and the glycemic index, has championed the GI approach to nutrition for more than twenty years. Jennie has recently completed research into the effects of a low-GI diet on pregnant women, with a view to reducing childhood obesity. KATE MARSH, a dietitian who has coeliac disease and type 1 diabetes, has recently completed a study into low-GI eating and women who have PCOS, a condition which makes it difficult for women to conceive. She has co-authored two other books on low-GI eating. PROF ROBERT MOSES is an international authority on diabetes and its treatment. Since opening an endocrinology practice in Wollongong in 1975, his interest and referral base has developed to focus on diabetes and problems that can arise during pregnancy, particularly gestational diabetes.
