#21Real Food for Pregnancy, Prenatal Supplements & Folic Acid vs Folate with Lily Nichols

"During pregnancy Its going to be really hard for you to meet all of your micronutrient needs from food, if half, or more than half of your diet is coming from carbs, it’s just a fact of life. You run a nutrient analysis and it shows this very clearly"

Join me and Lily Nichols on episode 21 of the Hormones in Harmony podcast as we discuss...

- Why nutrition is so important for fertility and pregnancy

- Issues with the conventional nutrition advice and guidelines

- Why we should be focusing on a ‘real food ’approach, rather than the conventional dietary recommendations

- Key nutrients for pregnancy that aren’t often discussed

- Whether prenatal vitamins are important and how to identify a good supplement

- Folic acid vs folate
