This diet is about nurturing the mother and baby with good nutrition so that pregnancy complication such as toxemia, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, and other problems can be prevented.
Although I think there needs to be some replacements to the diet, such as raw milk for the pasteurized, poisonous milk sold in supermarkets. Soy needs to be removed from the recommendations, sprouted grains, free-range, pastured chicken eggs needs to be replaced for regular eggs, and organic, locally grown produce needs to be added. One more thing, sea salt or himalayan salt needs to be substituted for the toxic table salt. Other than those suggestions, I think that the diet is a wonderful way to add greater health to mom and baby.
As an aside, some of you maybe scratching your head wondering why I have suggested raw milk during pregnancy. I just have to say that clean milk from healthy grass fed cows/sheep/goats does not have the same pathogenic risk. Also women have been drinking raw milk for literally centuries during pregnancy. When it comes from health cows, it is healthy for you.
Furthermore, earlier this year, 3 elderly men died, onne woman miscarried, another was infected but delivered a healthy baby after receiving Listeriosis from pasteurized milk, not raw milk. The story can be found here. That is because pasteurized milk is more of a gamble than raw milk because the heat kills most of the bacteria but not all of the bacteria, leaving the stronger pathogens to grow and mature. Pasteurized/homogenized milk is also associated with heart disease, diabetes, prostate problems, allergies and many other problems. Raw milk from pasture raised and fed, hormone- and antibiotic-free animals is best.
