Real Food for Pregnancy: The Science and Wisdom of Optimal Prenatal Nutrition

Prenatal nutrition can be confusing. A lot of the advice you have been given about what to eat (or what not to eat) is well-meaning, but frankly, outdated or not evidenced-based.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 will 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.

    BEST, DEFINITIVE BOOK FOR NUTRITION IN PREGNANCY (and in general!) I didn’t discover this book until the last leg of my 3rd pregnancy- but it was still worth every penny!

I was honored to be an early reviewer of this book and even though prenatal nutrition is my specialty as a nutritionist focused on women’s health, I learned a TON while reading it. It’s somehow both a practical guide that anyone could use and also, basically, a textbook, filled with more than 900 citaions. To say that it’s evidence-based would be the understatement of the century. This book will get you REALLY questioning where we are today in terms of diet and lifestyle recommendations…

    The SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT book if you want to get pregnant or are already pregnant! If you’re thinking about getting pregnant, already are pregnant, or even just want to learn more about how to eat quality, whole foods, GET THIS BOOK! Just do it, you won’t regret it!! This book is backed by science and research, and has all the information you need to know to help you grow a healthy baby. I wish that this book had come out before I had my first two children. There is a severe lack of prenatal information given to pregnant women and this book is the answer we have all been…
