Eating Expectantly gives moms-to-be the tools, tips and tricks they need to eat well from preconception through postpartum. Nothing is more important than a mom's diet and lifestyle during pregnancy: it can set the stage for a lifetime of good health for their baby. But if mom and dad's diet are severely lacking, it could "program" their baby for birth defects or chronic disease like diabetes. Eating Expectantly is the most comprehensive book on the market and includes eating advice for each trimester, plus weight gain, cooking, food safety, fitness, vegetarian and eating out tips. Pregnancy comes with its share of eating challenges, and that's covered too, along with eating advice for high-risk pregnancies. This edition has a focus on "eating cleaner and greener" as well as two chapters devoted to nutrition for women (and their men) who want to improve their fertility through nutrition. Eating Expectantly contains QR codes which link to websites, videos and updates--the first interactive pregnancy book of it's kind! Just a few of the topics covered in Eating Expectantly: • How to have a healthier lifestyle and diet before conception to improve fertility and the odds of delivering a healthy baby--including advice for women with PCOS. • Step-by-step advice for each trimester--including power nutrients and super foods. • How to gain just the right amount of weight with the "smart carbs" approach. • Advice for a multitude of eating issues like vegetarian eating, gluten intolerance & tummy troubles. • How to plan and prepare healthy foods when time is short-- and eat better when eating out. • Food safety tips for pregnancy. • How to eat "cleaner" and "greener" by limiting pesticides and other chemicals. • Fitness tips for pregnancy and beyond. • Diet and lifestyle tips to prevent high-risk conditions like gestational diabetes, hypertension and pre-eclampsia and preterm birth. • Contributions from other Registered Dietitian authors and experts: Dave Grotto, Tammie Lakatos Shames, Connie Evers, Angela Grassi, Diane Welland, Dr. Jo, Sharon Palmer, Judy Simon and Tamara Duker Freuman. The companion book, The Eating Expectantly Cookbook, will be released Summer 2013.
