Brewer Diet

Some of us were discussing this on the belly pics thread. I thought I'd give it a thread of it's very own!

Here's a couple of links I found through google:

Weekly Diet Checklist--thinking of posting this on my fridge to track my eating. (I had to use print preview, switch to landscape orientation, and re-size it to 90% to get it to print on a single page.)

Serving Sizes from the different groups listed on the checklist.

Happy Eating!!

Re: Brewer Diet

DDC but how do you manage to eat everything every day? I'm having a SUPER hard time.

Short answer? I don't. But I do try, and come close most days. I keep a close eye on the protein and try to avoid junk (that fills me up but doesn't provide much nutrition).

I'm also just coming out of the 1st trimester and anxiously awaiting the return of appetite. With dd I never was very hungry and I think my health suffered from what I ate--I ended up with pregnancy hypertension and pre-e.

Re: Brewer Diet

I'd love to try it but NO way could I eat that much food. It's a physical impossibility for me. I'd love to try it modified to fit my stomach size.

Re: Brewer Diet

Thank you Tara! I will definitely be trying this. But I'll probably wait another couple of weeks in hopes that baby will let me eat most of it. Right now he's verrrry picky

Re: Brewer Diet

Remember that it gets easier as the 2nd trimester progresses to eat it all. Generally, you won't have room for junkfood at all if you eat all the protein and whole grains, plus veggies and fruits!!!

Also, MAKE SURE YOUR GRAINS ARE WHOLE GRAINS!!! Dr. Brewer himself before he died was concerned women were using his diet incorrectly, focusing only on the protein. I had the pleasure of connecting with him before he died during my 1st pregnancy through my doula. 100% whole grains provide b-Vitamins to keep 'brown mask of pregnancy' at bay, which is very important to mom's overall health.

By 20 weeks I am able to eat all he recommends. I have had 3 amazingly healthy pregnancies, never feeling tired at the end. My ob always teases me he's never seen a pregnant lady with such skinny ankles! It's the protien, doc.

Good luck to all!
