Get both mama and baby on track for a healthy, happy, and delicious life!
More and more studies show that the human body is not meant to digest the amount of processed wheat we've grown accustomed to. Whether you have Celiac disease or are simply trying to reduce your gluten intake, you are guaranteed to benefit from this insightful book. We all know that "you are what you eat." And once you conceive, your baby is what you eat as well--prenatal health and nutrition during pregnancy is so imperative!
The US is one of only eight countries in the world where the rate of mortality for pregnant women is on the rise, and obesity is one of the primary causes of this phenomenon--half of all pregnant women are considered overweight (not
due to baby weight gained during pregnancy, which is completely natural and expected).
Widely accepted, doctor- and dietitian-prescribed nutrition guidelines actually may be contributing to the growing obesity and gestational diabetes epidemics. Newly expectant mothers receive a packet of health information from their doctors, including a nutrition pamphlet, which proscribes a daily food regimen with 100 grams of sugar per day--the amount of sugar in 10 glazed donuts!
Aimee has developed a comprehensive nutrition guide that helps expecting and postpartum women achieve ideal health and weight during pregnancy and beyond. Implementing philosophies of current, highly-effective gluten-free nutrition trends that have not been fully introduced to the prenatal and postpartum populations, The Whole Pregnancy
offers a detailed dietary regimen that is based on whole and unprocessed foods, low-glycemic carbohydrates, quality proteins, and essential fats. Developed by a certified nutritionist, the meal-planning system presents a variety of simple, delicious recipes to benefit mother and baby. It also provides special instruction for each stage of pregnancy, including the first, second, and third trimesters, as well as the "fourth trimester" of postpartum weight loss and nursing.Author:
