Description de l'ouvrage

19 mars 2013
Did you know that simple changes in your diet could increase your fertility by 60 percent? That what you eat when you're pregnant could affect whether your child will need to wear glasses or braces? That increasing your intake of certain nutrients before you become pregnant could radically decrease your chances of suffering from morning sickness?

In Beautiful Babies, nutrition educator Kristen Michaelis reveals the truth about diet and pregnancy. Based on her research of the nutrient-rich diets of healthy and fertile populations around the world, she lays out exactly what you should and shouldn't eat when trying to conceive, during pregnancy, and while breast-feeding. In the first half of the book she explains the ways industrialized foods can prevent pregnancy, how a low-fat diet can increase your likelihood of infertility by 85 percent, what to do if breast-feeding doesn't work for you, why babies can't digest cereal, and gives step-by-step instructions on how and when to introduce your baby's first foods. In the second half of the book she equips you with more than 50 recipes for incorporating traditional fertility-boosting foods into your diet. Beautiful Babies provides you with everything you need to know about having a healthy pregnancy and nourishing your growing baby.

Revue de presse

"Kristen Michaelis can help rescue your child from the quagmire of unhealthy baby formulas, cereals, and jarred foods while implementing a nourishing lifestyle that is your child's best immunization against illness. I see many happy babies growing up on these kinds of real foods, and I would like to see more."—Dr. Cate Shanahan, MD, author of Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food

"Before civilization, humans once had an innate intelligence about what was edible in their environment and how to prepare it in order to extract the most nutrition from it. Kristen Michaelis walks you through the minefield of conventional nutrition babble to the safety of what thousands of years of cultural traditions have shown: that vibrant health comes from eating what our ancestors ate—unprocessed foods from animals raised as they are supposed to live. This is correct nutrition that needs to be taught in every household and school and handed down from parents to children. This book should be required reading for all parents and those contemplating parenthood."—Jill Tieman, MA, DC, CCN, DACBN, editor of

"At the end of October 2012, I found myself lethargic, uninterested in most things, and frustrated with my weight. Most of all, I was disappointed that my husband and I had not conceived, even though we had been trying for over six months. Tracking my ovulation didnÆt seem to help. When I ran across Kristen's website, Food Renegade, a week later, I immediately signed up for her free e-mail course on Beautiful Babies. Who doesnÆt want a beautiful baby? I made little changes at first, then bigger ones as I found reliable sources for real, traditional food. My energy went up, my digestive issues stopped, and it felt like my brain worked again for the first time in years. Best of all, a few days after Christmas, the home pregnancy test I took showed positive. I am eight weeks into my pregnancy with no nausea, enough energy to keep up with my three kids and two dogs, almost no mood swings, and the joy of anticipating a healthy pregnancy for myself and my baby."—Robin Fuentes, Beautiful Babies student

ôI want to thank you a hundred times over for the 'Beautiful Babies' e-course. I followed the recommendations that you made and I had a healthy, complication-free pregnancy and birth. I didnÆt get any stretch marks, varicose veins, no swelling, no pre-eclampsia, etc. I had a water birth with no complications, and I didn't use any painkillers or any drugs! I left the 'birthing center' the same day. I couldn't be happier! Just 1.5 weeks after giving birth and I can fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes."—Keri Hessel, Beautiful Babies student

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Orange Cheese Lover Says: This Changed My Life 2 avril 2013
Par Ernestine Hemingway - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I'm not a foodie. I love processed foods. Orange cheese, McDonalds, tube cookie dough... what the heck is this book on my recommendations page? Why would I even order it? I'm not a Weston Price person or any of those organizations. (15 days ago I had NEVER heard of Weston Price.) Heck, I didn't even know what coconut oil was or what the difference between corn and canola oil was two weeks ago. Why would you want beef that was raised on grass when corn-fed beef doesn't have that kind-of weird taste? And yes, chicken skin is so good, but it's really bad. Now, I eat and sleep and breathe this stuff. I mean it. Amazon somehow figured I might like this. Probably when I was buying a yogurt maker or a Montessori teaching book. I buy nothing else with Organic, Slow Food, Grass-Fed, or the like in the title. It's a little frightening how they could predict. Well, it arrived. I ordered it sort-of irresponsibly because I always feel a little guilty that I can't breast feed. I opened it sitting on the stairs. My kids were yelling for things, but I was glued. Two weeks later we get eggs from a "speak-easy" shed where you leave money for a farmer in town (yes, me, those of you who know me!). The yolks are neon yellow and I feed them to my 5 mo old. We get pasture-raised butter and cream from Whole Foods (best we can do for now) and I have tons of frozen grass-raised meats in my freezer. My life has literally changed. I can never eat the same way again. (And again, readers, I am NOT one of those Prius-driving, Farmer's Market-loving types, really!!!) I think so much of this is true and so much matters. It was an easy read and a brilliant introduction into what is no doubt the most important thing I can do for my children and family -- feed them well. And it's not hard at all.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book increased my fertility! 7 avril 2013
Par Lala - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
After miscarrying my first pregnancy I was told I had a hormonal imbalance that was possibly PCOS (though I don't fit the standard profile) and it would be necessary for me to use fertility drugs to have a "strong" ovulation. After 8 months of following the recommended low-fat, calorie counting diet that many physicians adhere to, 3 rounds of fertility drugs and 2 failed IUIs, my husband and I were feeling hopeless and helpless (not to mention broke as we had spent some of our house savings for fertility treatments).

At the end of February I pre-ordered this book and took your online "Beautiful Babies" course. I started the course right away and made several immediate changes, most importantly adding in more good fats to my diet as I learned about the important role of cholesterol in hormone production. My TSH(thyroid) levels equalized after 5 months of being elevated and I felt much better. My other hormone levels began to equalize as well (all confirmed by blood test). I ovulated on cycle day 15, whereas I previously ovulated around day 21. My progesterone levels after ovulation on unmedicated cycles used to be around 7 (too low) and this time was 22! Today, April 7, I got a positive pregnancy test! And this was an unmedicated cycle as we had decided to take a break from fertility treatments. My husband and I are ecstatic and excited to continue making changes in our diet and lifestyle, because they are creating very positive changes!

Though I am now pregnant, this book will continue to be important during the next 9 months and especially after baby arrives as there is valuable information on breastfeeding and baby's first foods. As a first time mom, I will definitely be needing some references for these next steps!

*Disclaimer: I just want to make clear that I do not believe that diet alone may be a fertility treatment for everyone, as there can be many factors that cause infertility. I understand the role that fertility treatments play (as does the author of this book) but I think that for those that do need to undergo fertility treatments that this book can be a wonderful supplement that could increase the likelihood of pregnancy.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Ideal nutrition to promote fertility, a healthy pregnancy, breastfeeding, and baby's first solids 26 novembre 2013
Par Holly Scudero - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
Kristen Michaelis is well-known in the blogging world for her site “Food Renegade,” which focuses on a traditional foods diet. Now she has applied her knowledge of nutrition to baby-making; “Beautiful Babies” is all about how to eat right to promote fertility, being healthy while pregnant, how a woman's diet can improve the quality of her breastmilk, and venturing into the world of solid foods once the baby is ready. Like many in the traditional foods movement, Michaelis promotes the dietary principles advocated by the Weston A. Price Foundation; unlike some names from that community who have been in the blogging spotlight of late, Michaelis is refreshingly non-judgmental towards women who do not maintain a “perfect” diet. Good nutrition is indeed important, and it is the author's goal to help women work towards it, but she keeps a very positive attitude about it all, offers suggestions to help those who are having a hard time eating certain recommended foods, and even has a section devoted to recipes that even the newest newbie to traditional foods will not find daunting. She also presents tons and tons of research to support what she claims, sourced from a wide variety of places (and with an extensive source chapter to back it up). Michaelis freely admits that she has no educational qualifications for this book, but she is a mom who has researched these topics thoroughly, and the book she has written provides a lot of good information in a very accessible format.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Lots of good info, but double-check some suggestions. 8 avril 2013
Par L. K. Bridges - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book was an enjoyable read with lots of good information in it, but I had some concerns with it as well. America definitely isn't top tier when it comes to pregnancy and mother and infant health (health in general), and this book does a good job of pointing out some of these issues while pointing the reader in the direction of seeking advice from other countries who stand in a significantly better position than we do according to the CIA World Fact Book. I like how it focuses on a nutrient rich diet to best support the growing baby and mother.

However, there are some claims and bits of advice in it that seem to have gone without sufficient research and that can potentially land the expectant mother in dangerous territory. Some of the suggested herbals for treating maladies during pregnancy are not safe for pregnancy use. Please, if you read this book, double-check with your healthcare professional or an herbalist first before taking any of the suggested herbs. Licorice and ginger in particular are suggested and are herbal remedies not safe for pregnancy, despite the suggestion in this book, and run the risk for miscarriage and other pregnancy issues.

As well, I take issue with the WAPF claims about certain physical features and traits and their connection with a nutrient rich diet. The idea that eating a nutrient rich diet while pregnant, while it is certainly important and in the best interest of mother and baby, will prevent vision and structural issues, etc. is a pretty far-fetched claim. This is not saying that diet cannot effect these things *eventually*. But basic genetics show us that this kind of change in a population as a result of diet takes many generations, and it was not necessarily due to diet alone. Environment also has to be taken into account, and that's not even covering everything. Yes, eat healthfully while pregnant and give everyone involved the best start and chances possible. But if you're genetics are already pre-disposed to certain things, I wouldn't be expecting for your diet to be changing what may be structural struggles in your immediate family line. Remember that Dr. Price's observation of traditional societies was just that. An observation of an established society. Any genetic traits that were exploited due to dietary content were such because it had been the population's diet historically. They didn't just turn around into it overnight and start producing babies with healthier features. It was ingrained.

Overall, good read, but I wouldn't leave it as the only book your read for pregnancy preparation. And I would double-check suggestions for treating ailments in pregnancy because there was incorrect information that could prove dangerous.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Semi disappointed.... 16 avril 2013
Par Mrs. Smith - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
If you are new to the Primal/Paleo/Nourishing Traditions lifestyle, then this book would be an excellent resource. However, if you've read a lot of of these books already, hung out on marksdailyapple, etc., then there isn't enough new information in the book to justify the cost. Not to mention, for the nutrition part she mainly repeats the Weston Price foundation's recommendations for pregnant mothers, which is free on their website. There was some good research on why to eat this way, which I appreciated. A very short chapter on breastfeeding, which was my downfall as a first time mom, so I was hoping for more there too. The recipes would've been great if they hadn't relied heavily on "whey", which is dairy and a big NO for people like myself. There were no alternatives offered either (by the way, you don't need probiotic whey to culture many lacto-fermented foods). Overall, it's definitely a helpful book if you're new on the scene, but otherwise there are way more books out there like this already...we didn't really need another.
Also edited to add that in the later chapter about saving money, Kristen admits to being vegan 40% of the year! So she believes in proper nutrition for fertility, but the other times money is of more importance than feeding her now living children a good diet? That was pretty much the last straw for me with this book.
