The Plant-Based Dietitian’s Guide to FERTILITY

Lisa Simon RD

From: £9.99

A guide to optimising male and female fertility via a whole food plant-based diet and lifestyle interventions, drawing on the growing evidence that animal products and trans fats can have a detrimental impact on fertility and supporting the beneficial effects of plant-based eating. The role of macro- and micro-nutrients, the nutrients and fibre found only in whole plants, and the importance of tackling sleep and stress issues are explained together with guidance on how to harness the latest knowledge. Lisa Simon draws on her personal experience of overcoming fertility issues with a plant-based diet and on her professional work with many clients seeking a healthy and successful pregnancy.
