Publishers Description
Announcing <em>Eating Well When You're Expecting</em>, providing momsto- be with a realistic approach to navigating healthily and deliciously through the nine months of pregnancy&#8212;at home, in the office, over the holidays, in restaurants. Thorough chapters are devoted to nutrition, weight gain, food safety, the postpartum diet, and how to eat when trying to conceive again. And, very exciting, the book comes with 150 contemporary, tasty, and healthy recipes that feed mom and baby well, take little time to prepare, and are gentle on queasy tummies. <br> <br> A departure from its predecessor, <em>What to Eat When You're Expecting</em>, which has 976,000 copies in print, <em>Eating Well </em>loses the whole-wheatierthan- thou attitude, and comes with a light, reader-friendly tone while delivering the most up-to-date information. At the heart of the book are hundreds of pressing questions every mother-to-be has:<em> Is it true I shouldn't eat any food cooked with alcohol? Will the caffeine in coffee cross into my baby's bloodstream? Help!&#8212;I'm entering my second trimester, and I'm losing weight, not gaining. Is all sushi off limits? How do I get enough calcium if I'm lactose intolerant? I keep dreaming about a hot fudge sundae&#8212; can I indulge?</em> Guess what: the answer is yes.

Good basic health tips, but not for vegetarians or pescetarians  Mar 22, 2010
I recently learned I was pregnant, and wanted to make sure I was eating right for the baby so bought a few books to do some research. I'm not sure this one will get much use - I may donate it to a local library, in case someone else finds it helpful.

In my opinion, the original "What to Expect When You're Expecting" is preferable to this book, as this doesn't give a lot of new info if you know have a basic knowledge of how to eat healthy anyway. The one big exception is the recipes that are included here, and the detailed breakdown of what different food options are available to meet each specific nutritional recommendation/requirement for pregnancy. Otherwise it's mainly just basic nutritional advice.

The second issue I had with the book is that there is very little information available for vegetarians, or even for those who only eat fish/shellfish. It would have been nice if there had been more vegetarian dishes, or even vegetarian options listed for the meat recipes.
The what to expect series is great.  Mar 3, 2010
I bought this as a gift, but I have other books from this series and they are great. My niece who recieved this book as a gift says it has been very helpful.
Take it with a grain of salt!  Feb 13, 2010
This book is NOT written by doctors, and my OBGYN (considered one of the best in my county) strongly disagrees with a lot of stuff in the book. I also have found research that counters some of what they say.

My OBGYN was absolutely enraged at the book's allegation that pregnant women who have food allergy family histories should not eat peanuts or peanut butter. There is no medical validity to that claim--the peanut butter is not going to harm your baby, and there is no medical evidence to suggest that it will give the baby allergies.

Also, the book talks a lot about how you should eat flaxseed liberally, when in fact there are studies that show too much flaxseed can interrupt the growth of the fetus. While the book does say you should consume DHA, it barely mentions EPA (equally important). Also, it does the SERIOUS disservice of not explaining that the true and purest form of DHA/EPA is in algae--NOT fish. Seafood itself has no DHA/EPA--the fish get it from the algae they eat. There are companies like V-Pure (whose supplements I purchase) that grow their own organic algae outside of the ocean (so free from ocean contamination).

So pregnant women like me who wish to avoid seafood because of mercury DO have an option. However, the book just makes it sound like seafood is the only way to get DHA/EPA. Not true.

In the section discussing Selenium, the book states that Brazil Nuts are a "whopping" supplier--they do not tell you that one brazil nut contains 200 mg of selenium (the book correctly states you need 60 mg per day when you're pregnant) and that eating too many brazil nuts can lead to selenium toxicity--well, the average woman would not think that eating 3-4 brazil nuts a day could be harmful--but it could be.

The book also recommends DHA fortified bars and snacks which contain Life's DHA, a product by a company called Martek. However, it does not mention that the Cornucopia Foundation released a study showing that Martek extracts Life's DHA using a NEUROTOXIN called Hexane, and that severe illness and diarrhea has been diagnosed in some babies who consume formula and products with Life's DHA. I say "no thanks" to consuming that while I'm pregnant.
Thank goodness there is no guilt and good recipes  Feb 6, 2010
I have heard feedback from patients that really like the recipes in this book and that they are not too hard or time consuming to make since you really don't have time as a mom. There are many books out there for diet in pregnancy and this is good one to add, but there are some misconceptions out there that you are eating for two or that you need to gain a certain amount of weight during pregnancy. Just like your baby your pregnancy is different and your weight gain is going to vary based on genetics, diet, and exercise. Another great book that looks into pregnancy myths and also has an entire chapter on dietary myths in pregnancy is Hands Off My Belly: The Pregnant Woman's Survival Guide to Myths, Mothers, and Moods
What to expect: When you are expecting  Jan 18, 2010
This was a gift for my daughter and she enjoyed the things she learned and what things she should avoid. She said her doctor said the book made her a better patient.
