Pregnancy – Intermediate

The “Geek Bar” above can be found on every page that contains more advanced nutritional information. Sliding the marker from green-to-yellow-to-red will increase the amount of detail provided on each topic.

Precision Food Works philosophy on pregnancy begins by setting a clean baseline for the Mother-to-be and ends with the mother – in a fully nourished state – weaning her child from breastfeeding. There are so many toxins in the air, food, water, and general-use products that it’s remarkable that the majority of babies are born without problems. That said, why would you want to risk the health of your newborn by having a child without knowing if you have accumulated heavy metals, as well as a host of other chemicals that can cause birth defects.

Our pregnancy program starts with a nutritional blood test to insure that fertility won’t be affected by a nutritional deficiency or toxicity. Ideally, this testing should be done before moving forward with pregnancy, though it can definitely be run at any time. We can work directly with your OBGYNs or fertility specialist, as they would want to be aware of any issue that turns up in this area.

From there, we put together a state-of-the-art meal plan that keeps you out of the kitchen and as well-nourished as any program on the planet. You don’t have to shop for groceries, prep ingredients, cook, or clean up…everything is taken care of for you. You can pick your menu through the web site, making sure that you only receive the meals that appeal to you. Weight gain is easy to control, as each ingredient in each meal is measured to the gram. This allows us to calculate EXACTLY how many grams of protein, carbohydrate, and fat per meal. Since the caloric control is spot-on, you will gain weight at an appropriate rate, reduce the risk of gestational diabetes, and have an easier time returning to your pre-pregnancy weight afterward.

Once you’ve had a healthy and happy baby, we re-run the nutritional blood panel to analyze what nutrients you’ve run low in. By detecting these deficiencies right away, we can correct the problem ASAP…before your metabolism has a chance to slow down or you start to show signs of deficiencies. Meals can be delivered that supply the exact number of calories needed to get the baby weight off AND allow you to breastfeed without reducing your milk production. In addition, all of the meals are incredibly healthy, meaning that you’ll feel like yourself much quicker than if you followed a do-it-yourself “post baby diet plan” laid out on some web site.

Feel free to contact us with any questions and we’ll do our best to point you in the right direction. Our office can be reached at 323-305-4479.
