Top Customer Reviews
However, the actual content of the book is not impressive:
- the nutritional info is somewhat dated, with its recommendation to follow a low-fat, high-carb diet, no mention of DHA supplements, and no reccomendation to decrease carb intake if starting the pregnancy overweight.
- the exercise routines might be ok for someone who has never exercised before, but for anyone who has, they won't help.
I put this book aside and instead used "What to eat when you are expecting" as my nutritional guide and Lisa Hart's "Fit Mama" as my workout, as well as plenty of walking and some hiking, and I'm glad I did!
