Blue Ribbon Baby Diet

The title of this post may seem a bit absurd, but this is by far the best diet for pregnancy I have come across. When I say diet, do not rush to think I am talking about diets that are in the realm of Atkins, South Beach, or other such popular poppycock! This diet is not about restriction, it is about eating what your baby needs to grow health and strong, and what the mother needs to maintain a healthy pregnancy. The below table can be used as a guideline to the mother's needs. More info about the blue ribbon baby diet can be found here.

BREWER PREGNANCY DIET: BASIC PLAN


SUNDAY MONDAY TUESDAY WEDNESDAY THURSDAY FRIDAY SATURDAY
1. MILK/DAIRY (8 OZ. EACH)
2. EXTRA CALCIUM (IF USING UNFORTIFIED SOY MILK)
3. EGGS
4. PROTEIN (7 GRAMS/SERVING)
5. DARK GREEN VEGETABLES
6. WHOLE GRAINS, STARCHES, CARBS
7. VITAMIN C
8. FATS/OILS
9. VITAMIN A
10. LIVER (ONCE A WEEK, OR EXTRA 4 OZ. PROTEIN)
11. SALT TO TASTE
12. WATER/ BEVERAGE
13. SNACKS
14. SUPPLEMENTS
Taken from: http://www.blueribbonbaby.org/brewer-diet-checklists/brewer-diet-basic-plan-checklist/

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.

javieth, if you are referring to exercise during pregnancy (since the Brewer Diet is ONLY for pregnancy), I would like to caution you to take great care when exercising during pregnancy. There is some evidence that too much exercise during pregnancy can greatly increase a woman's risk of developing pre-eclampsia. You can check this article for more information on that. I think that they are recommending not more than 15 min a day of moderate exercise. In my opinion, their results were probably due to these women not compensating nutritionally for the extra calories they burned during this exercise. Joy

I don't think so, according with others studies, the most important part about any blog is the headline or tittle, and I think you know that, so your tittle was perfect because catch the whole attention and everyone can support me, by the way , in many societies medical or legal definitions, human pregnancy is somewhat arbitrarily divided into three trimester periods, as a means to simplify reference to the different stages of prenatal development. 23jj
