It was a very bad choice not to include the citations in the book. Gets two stars because I learned a thing or two -- not that I feel I can necessarily trust them. Mar 27, Melinda rated it really liked it.
This was just a lot of information. It was good information! But yeah, just a lot. A lot of it made me feel good that I was already doing the things I was supposed to do, some of the stuff is easily added to my routine, some of it felt crazy. If you read this book, remind yourself that you don't have to do ALL the things. Doing what works for you and feeling positively toward your baby is the most important thing.
Dec 27, Alina Vandenberghe rated it really liked it Shelves: pregnancy. This book contains a lot of helpful information that you can't find anywhere else. The missing star is because I really dislike Dave Asprey because of his focus on money making as opposed to actually helping people. May 11, Eliran rated it really liked it.

Take the right supplements. Detoxify your body before, during, and after pregnancy. Minimize stress. These things are done based on science showing us that our genes aren't destiny, but rather an interplay of the environment and genes. Countless factors can cause any of a baby's genes to turn on or off during the time in the womb. Even a mother's thoughts and feelings during pregnancy can play a significant role in determining what personality traits, characteristics, and behaviors her child may inherit.
The three most common things that affect gene expression are the mother's diet and nutrition, her environment, and her emotions. Having a healthy father also has a big effect on a baby's genes, much more than many people realize. While I didn't necessarily agree with everything in The Better Baby Book , it did give me a lot of food for thought and for the record, no, I am not currently pregnant nor planning on getting pregnant in the near future.
In addition, I would've liked to have seen references in the book itself, but they can be found here. View all 3 comments.

My biggest beef with this book hence 3 stars is that this is, essentially, the Bulletproof Diet i. Paleo with possibly even gentler cooking with the word baby attached. This book, diagrams included, can almost all be found on his website.
There are a few extra tidbits to help up your fertility even more, but reading this book, I generally felt like there was no reason to change what I was already doing because I'd already made most of these adjustments to my diet over the last couple years in preparation for future pregnancy.
Feb 06, Linnea rated it it was ok. I was curious about this book after hearing about it on Dave Asprey's popular Bulletproof Executive podcast. Dave Asprey is a self-proclaimed biohacker, so I was expecting the book to contain somewhat controversial perspectives. I was interested to hear what sort of balance his wife and co-author, Swedish M. Lana Asprey, brought to the book. While I would use this book as a springboard for my own research, I wouldn't use it as any sort of cornerstone guidebook as there were a lot of things in I was curious about this book after hearing about it on Dave Asprey's popular Bulletproof Executive podcast.
While I would use this book as a springboard for my own research, I wouldn't use it as any sort of cornerstone guidebook as there were a lot of things in it I would not do or be interested in trying supplementing with bioidentical hormones and other pharmaceuticals, eating copious amounts of butter on a daily basis, etc. Nov 01, Dana Karls rated it it was ok Shelves: midwifery , health , science , pcos.

Jan 02, Alvin rated it it was amazing. Great information, clear and concise. This book is meant to be more of an "optimal" goal rather than trying to be perfect. I was happy to see the research that backed up the findings, yet it was delivered to the reader in clear and relatable language. I wish that some of the links listed in the book were updated some sections would say go to a link for more info, and often times nothing was there but that is not a reflection on the quality of the book.
Nov 02, Saira rated it really liked it Shelves: parenthood. This book really makes you think about how much control we have and how we can minimize risk factors both during pregnancy and essentially any point if you think about it.
Probably won't implement everything in the book, but trying to implement even some of it puts you in a better place than you were before. The authors of this book seem paranoid, recommend massive vitamin supplementation and avoiding so many kinds of food that your diet would be extremely restricted. Some of their suggestions seemed down right dangerous- eating raw eggs? No dairy products except butter. This book was just too extreme for me.
Jul 20, Andrea rated it it was amazing. I read many books on fertility, as this is one of my clinical interests, and have found that I recommend this one to my clients the most. Mar 29, Richard rated it liked it Shelves: health , biology. Good info about women's health, but like much of the Bulletproof methodology, I'm skeptical about so many of the claims, often presented with more certainty than is warranted.
Apr 21, Kristine rated it liked it. Very informative, but the lack of research citations at least in the Kindle version makes for incredibly frustrating reading. Nov 26, Emily Wismer rated it did not like it. This book claims to be based on scientific research, but the research's methodologies are highly flawed and will strike stress and fear into any woman.
I suggest skipping this book. Sep 07, Megan rated it liked it. Apr 01, Gelo Barrretto added it. Great information on epigenetics and overall great health principles. I highly recommend. Nov 04, Tom rated it it was amazing. Very informative and unconventional but scientifically backed approach to set yourself up for a healthy baby. Must read for anyone planning to conceive. Interesting book. A lot of information on supplements and sources of toxins in everyday life. Becomes a bit extreme maybe, sometimes the approach does not feel "natural". There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

Quotes from The Better Baby B People who eat a diet rich in omega-3 experience lower rates of heart attack, depression, schizophrenia, ADHD, and Alzheimer's disease. Omega-3 has also been shown to slow the growth of some types of cancer. They strengthen the intestinal walls and manufacture vital nutrients. They also help the body to use nutrients and fight harmful microbes in the GI tract. Your body actually contains about ten times as many probiotic bacteria cells as it does human cells!
You simply couldn't survive without these little creatures. Probiotics protect us from a number of health problems, including food allergies and skin problems. Probiotics also play a key role in the female reproductive system. Like the GI tract, the vagina contains and relies on a delicate ecosystem for optimal health. The Lactobacillus strains that populate the walls of the vagina make the environment too acidic for most intruders, thus protecting the vagina and the womb from infection.
Just like the GI tract, however, this ecosystem can easily become disrupted by the exact same causes: antibiotics and stress. Spermicides and birth control pills can also cause an imbalance. Imbalances can usually be remedied with therapeutic doses of Lactobacillus acidophilus. When you buy probiotic supplements, it's important to know which strains of probiotic bacteria are in the supplement.
Each strain and substrain offers its own unique benefits. The Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium strains are found naturally in the human GI tract and offer countless health benefits. They're the most prevalent strains you'll find in supplements. Lactobacillus GG, sold as Culturelle, is the best studied. Bacillus subtilis is a wonderfully beneficial probiotic that does not occur naturally in humans but is found in many probiotic supplements.
It's excellent at killing pathogens and unwanted microorganisms. Probiotic supplements come in capsules and powders. Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Atomic Habits. James Clear.
