Praise for Fertility Foods
"In my years in practice as a Reproductive Endocrinologist, one consistent question asked by both women and men is 'What can I (we) do to improve chances to conceive?' Although a thorough medical evaluation is essential, many patients seek opportunities where they themselves can affect positive change. Engaging in a healthy diet and lifestyle is something patients can have control over to improve fertility. Knowing what changes to make, however, is difficult, and that is where Fertility Foods comes in! Mrs. Shaw and Mrs. Haas, both registered dietitian nutritionists, present scientifically-supported information in which readers can feel confident, and they present it in a friendly and readable manner. They take the mystery out of what to eat, how to eat and most importantly, why to eat a nutrient-dense diet to optimize fertility. And as a budding foodie myself, I can attest that the recipes are delicious!" —Wendy B. Shelly, MD, FACOG, Fertility Specialists Medical Group
"I wholeheartedly believe in practicing medicine with Mind, Body and Soul in mind, and I love how that Fertility Foods incorporates nutrition into making your mind, body and soul whole. This book can be for anyone looking to feel great inside and out. Easy to read and learn new concepts. Get ready to take on a yummy, nutritional, wholesome way of life." —Angelica Neison, MD, Sharp Rees-Stealy Mira Mesa
