Today, I’m going to talk about a topic that is for sure going to stir up a debate and I’m probably going to get some hate mail.

The topic is animal protein vs. plant-based protein.  I get this questions very often from the women with whom I consult.  “Really, I can have red meat?  I thought that was bad for you?”  Or “Really?  I read this book and it said plant based diets were way better for fertility so I stopped eating animal protein.”

We can have debate on ethics some other time, but if you’re trying to get pregnant and you’re asking for my advice, I’m going to be honest with you and tell you like it is because this is my area of expertise.  

When it comes to hormone balance, and especially trying to get pregnant, animal proteins provide the most complete source of amino acids which are the building blocks for hormones, and plant proteins do not.

Let’s dive in to take a deeper look.

Today, I actually want to revisit an old topic that we’ve talked about a lot this past year.  And that is gut health.  

I want to revisit gut health because since episode 3 aired, the responses and questions have been overwhelming because it’s a new way of looking at nutrition, and how specifically it affects fertility.

In the US, salads are the go to "health" foods.  And most people grew up drinking milk.  So cutting out dairy and ditching the smoothies and salads for most people, presents a huge lifestyle change.  

Through working with clients and talking to women in our private Facebook group, I see three main obstacles that people are encountering when they make this shift to no raw foods and no dairy.

So let's dive in and talk about how to overcome these obstacles.
