Product description


Real Food For Pregnancy should find its way into every medical school and prenatal clinic. Lily Nichols first book, Real Food for Gestational Diabetes, is a staple in my teaching here at West Virginia University and has shifted how many in our department view nutrition. Her second book is encyclopedic; it s amazingly well-referenced and more in-depth than many textbooks. If mothers embrace Lily s advice, the next generation will hopefully suffer less obesity and diabetes. --Mark Cucuzzella, MD, FAAFP, Professor at West Virginia University School of Medicine

No one has dissected the research on prenatal nutrition -- and done so in the context of ancestral diets -- to the depth that Lily Nichols has in Real Food for Pregnancy. If you want an evidence-based rebuttal to the outdated prenatal nutrition guidelines, look no further. --Robb Wolf, 2x NYT Bestselling Author, Wired to Eat & The Paleo Solution

Lily Nichols has written a must-read for any woman or health professional interested in prenatal nutrition. During my first pregnancy I felt like I spent hours upon hours trying to research all of the information that is summed up beautifully in Real Food for Pregnancy. Lily questions conventional wisdom and offers new and practical, science-based recommendations to support optimal health for both mom and baby. I hope this book will inspire change in current prenatal nutrition guidelines. --Shannon Weston, MPH, RD, LD, CDE, Houston, TX

Product Description

Prenatal nutrition can be confusing. A lot of the advice you’ve been given about what to eat (or what not to eat) is well-meaning, but frankly, outdated or not evidenced-based. In Real Food for Pregnancy, you’ll get clear answers on what to eat and why, with research to back up every recommendation. Author and specialist in prenatal nutrition, Lily Nichols, RDN, CDE, has taken a long and hard look at the science and discovered a wide gap between current prenatal nutrition recommendations and what foods are required for optimal health in pregnancy and for your baby’s development. There has never been a more comprehensive and well-referenced resource on prenatal nutrition. With Real Food for Pregnancy as your guide, you can be confident that your food and lifestyle choices support a smooth, healthy pregnancy.
