Review

I'm so thrilled to read Real Food for Pregnancy. I absolutely love Lily's work. Her evidence-based approach to nutrition is not only relevant during pregnancy, but for the rest of your life! I think every birth professional (midwife, doula, etc.) should have a copy in their lending library for clients. --Rebecca Dekker, PhD, RN, Founder of Evidence Based Birth®

"No one has dissected the research on prenatal nutrition--and done so in the context of ancestral diets--to the depth that Lily Nichols has in Real Food for Pregnancy. If you want an evidence-based rebuttal to the outdated prenatal nutrition guidelines, look no further."  
--Robb Wolf, 2x NYT Bestselling Author, Wired to Eat & The Paleo Solution

Real Food For Pregnancy should find its way into every medical school and prenatal clinic. Her first book, Real Food for Gestational Diabetes, is a staple in my teaching here at West Virginia University and has shifted how many in our department view nutrition. Lily's second book is encyclopedic; it's amazingly well-referenced and more in-depth than many textbooks. If mothers embrace Lily's advice, the next generation will hopefully suffer less obesity and diabetes."
--Mark Cucuzzella MD FAAFP
Professor West Virginia University School of Medicine

About the Author

Lily Nichols is a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Educator, researcher, and author with a passion for evidence-based prenatal nutrition. Drawing from the current scientific literature and the wisdom of traditional cultures, her work is known for being research-focused, thorough, and sensible. Her bestselling book, Real Food for Gestational Diabetes (and online course of the same name), presents a revolutionary nutrient-dense, lower carb approach for managing gestational diabetes. Her work has not only helped tens of thousands of women manage their gestational diabetes (most without the need for blood sugar-lowering medication), but has also influenced nutrition policies internationally. Lily’s clinical expertise and extensive background in prenatal nutrition have made her a highly sought after consultant and speaker in the field. Lily’s second book, Real Food for Pregnancy, outlines the problems with current prenatal nutrition guidelines and provides the evidence—930 citations and counting—that supports a real food diet to optimize maternal and fetal health. Lily is also creator of the popular blog, https://LilyNicholsRDN.com, which explores a variety of topics related to real food, mindful eating, and pregnancy nutrition. You can also find her on Instagram as @LilyNicholsRDN.
