Publisher's Summary

Get pregnant-naturally!

The Fertility Diet reveals startling new research from the landmark Nurses' Health Study, which shows that the food you eat can boost your fertility. The book prescribes 10 simple changes in diet and activity that can increase your chances of getting pregnant. These changes include:

  • Cutting back on red meat and trans fats
  • Getting protein and iron from veggies and nuts
  • Choosing whole-fat milk and even ice cream
  • Drinking coffee, tea, and alcohol in moderation
  • Losing weight (if needed) and exercising

The Nurses' Health Study exhaustively examined the effects of diet and other lifestyle changes on fertility among nearly 20,000 female nurses. 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 delicious recipes that will make following the guidelines easy and tasty.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Helpful but goes into too much detail

You really only need the highlights from this book if you understand basic nutrition. Super interesting, but I listened to it at 1.5x speed. If it was a print book I probably would have skimmed it. Narration is clear, and the information is good. Nice to see a diet backed in solid science.

A good overview

This mostly draws on the seminal Nurses' Study and so is grounded in real data, largely chiming with the majority of fertility diet advice out there too. I felt it was a little gentle so as not to scare people off too much, and it lacked the supplement advice that you find in other books like It Starts With the Egg. Some advice perhaps also needs tempering if you have PCOS, endometriosis or are undergoing IVF.
