Great book for pregnant vegans

I don't think pregnancy is a good time to go vegan (just like it wouldn't be a good time to stop being vegan) because your body is going through enough without a huge dietary change! That said if you are already vegan this is a great book!

In the beginning of the book the author's have a "disclaimer" stating that they say it like it is. What they really are trying to do is ruin the appetite of any pregnant woman. I was really disappointed with the book and returned it to the store. Thank goodness I read this book after my morning sickness was over, I might have thrown up reading their extremely graphic details of animal slaughtering. I would not recommend this book to anyone. I have no idea how the author's got a doctor to write a recommendation for this book. In case you are still considering buying this book I will let you know what they say in a nutshell: milk is more harmful than good, and they recommend not eating eggs, meat, poultry, diary products, and most carbohydrates. They leave us with a very specific list of food (down to the brand) you can buy, mostly made of soy. The authors in fact want you, the reader, to turn vegan during your pregnancy. Please for your own sanity go buy Great Expectations or What to Expect While Your Expecting, instead

    Great Info, Hard to Apply

    I found this book to be highly informative about the crap we eat, unfortunately my hormones are raging and I just can't help myself. It is so hard to follow the daily suggested foods when my body wants to eat NOW and when I want such specific things. I feel like such a failure as a pregnant mom knowing what I do now about specific foods but I also feel an extremist to follow this book cold turkey!

    Good if your willing to become a vegan

    This product is good because the author is very truthful about what is or is not good for you when you are pregnant. However I feel that some topics were a bit extrema.
