“Far from deprivation, the nutritional plans here for fertility, pregnancy, nursing and young kids propose a wide variety of whole grains, seasonal vegetables and fruits, and raw milk and organic animal fats necessary for healthy pregnancies and fetal and childhood development instead of skim milk, “carbage”(junk carbohydrates) and trans-fats... It tastes better and it’s good for you. Plank gives more comprehensive pre-pregnancy and pregnancy diets than those in What to Expect, and her lively, genuine and personal approach makes it easy to absorb a lot essential information.” ―Publishers Weekly

My best friend found out she was pregnant about 3 days after I finished up the fertility section of the book and I've lent it to her to read the chapters concerning pregnany and baby's first foods, and she is also a fan, and is following suit with cleaning the kitchen out of her chemically enhanced "fat-free!!!" junk.
I am a regular person with an interest in the health of myself, my family and friends. I really recommend this book to anyone that wants to make over their eating habits and start eating real food again. Getting rid of all my low-carb bread (which tastes like cardboard anyway, and comes in tiny slices), fat-free mayo (which is disgusting but I forced myself to use it because it was "better for me"), and all that kind of stuff has been liberating, honestly. I am enjoying meal-time again, not eating as much because my food actually tastes good and I am satisfied with less, and feeling better already. I forgot what I was missing.
I am currently adding in the foods recommended for fertility, and it's nice to have a natural approach to upping my chances. I also look forward to being pregnant and not being a stereotype of the pregnant lady (eating a whole carton of ice cream, sending my husband out for fast food in the middle of the night) and hope that the guidelines put forth in this book will help me through pregnancy in the healthiest way possible. And of course I plan on feeding my baby nothing but the best. I was not brought up on canned baby food, and I've never planned on going that route, but I am glad to have some guidelines (and I know there are a ton of reference books out there) on what is going to be the best for my baby's health...real food, of course.
I bought the book to become more informed on how to change my diet since I have a 9month old and want to get pregnant and nurse again. Plus it helped me know how to feed him better too. Also I'm pretty sure that my first nursing experience completely failed because of my poor diet. My son became failure to thrive, even though we started out great, it went downhill fast. He is now on formula, ugh, but we are quickly switching him to as much REAL food as possible. And he is Thriving!
Thank you Nina!!
