Publisher Comments:

Could having the occasional small bowl of ice cream lead to a midnight craving for pickles and ice cream?It's common knowledge that diet and exercise have profound effects on your health. Can they affect your ability to get pregnant, too? Until now, the answer to that question was a qualified "Maybe." Today, it's "Yes!" thanks to exciting findings from a landmark long-term study of female nurses. As described in The Fertility Diet, ten simple changes in diet and activity can have profound effects on fertility. You can increase your chances of getting pregnant with such simple strategies as:
  • Avoiding trans fats
  • Eating more beans, nuts, and other fertility-boosting plant protein
  • Embracing whole grains such as oatmeal and barley
  • Having a glass of whole milk or other full-fat dairy product every day (a small bowl of ice cream every now and then counts, too!)
  • Staying away from sugared sodas

The Nurses' Health Study exhaustively examined the effects of diet and other lifestyle changes on fertility among nearly 20,000 female nurses. It scrutinized everything from alcohol to vitamins. In plain language, two of the study's lead researchers translate its groundbreaking findings into changes you can put into practice today, setting the stage for a healthy pregnancy and forming the foundation for an eating strategy that will serve you well for the rest of your life. The Fertility Diet also offers a week's worth of meal plans and fifteen delicious recipes.

Synopsis:

New research from the world-famous Nurses' Health Study reveals what you eat can improve your fertility Two of the researchers of the highly respected Nurses' Health Study distill the wisdom of this groundbreaking research into 10 easy-to-follow principles. The book shows you how to choose the best fats, carbs, and proteins, cut back on coffee and alcohol, and, best of all, enjoy your favorite foods like ice cream--all to boost ovulation and increase the odds of getting pregnant.
