A departure from its predecessor, "What to Eat When You re Expecting," which has 976,000 copies in print, "Eating Well "loses the whole-wheatier-than-thou attitude, and comes with a light, reader-friendly tone while delivering the most up-to-date information. At the heart of the book are hundreds of pressing questions every mother-to-be has: " Is it true I shouldn t eat any food cooked with alcohol? Will the caffeine in coffee cross into my baby s bloodstream? Help I m entering my second trimester, and I m losing weight, not gaining. Is all sushi off limits? How do I get enough calcium if I m lactose intolerant? I keep dreaming about a hot fudge sundae can I indulge?" Guess what: the answer is yes.
What to Expect When You Are Expecting is a perennial best-seller, but its detailed descriptions of virtually every moment of pregnancy can also make mothers-to-be a little crazy. Some women in pregnancy crave all that information, but for others, it's information overload. More at NPR.org
