Taking heed of some of the more negative reviews of this book, I approached The Fertility Diet as I would a reference book (as opposed to a bible), dipping in and out of chapters, and deciding what I thought were achievable and realistic changes to my lifestyle. Six weeks later and I felt slimmer, healthier, with a more positive outlook about my fertility. Two months later, I discovered that I was pregnant, which after nearly a year of trying, was a wonderful surprise.
I am in no way attributing these results solely to the The Fertility Diet, because I by no means read it from cover to cover and/or followed it to the letter. What I do think it did for me was turn on a light somewhere, that the slim possibility offered by the doctors was more than that, if I was willing to take some control and consider how my diet and lifestyle might be hindering my chances of conceiving.
The book is written in a chatty, conversational style, and the research elements are fascinating, it is not a dull read by any means, even if you conclude that the suggested life style changes are too radical. But then I guess the decision to pursue IVF is also a radical one, that's why I think that if you're up against your body clock and seriously considering going down this route, it's a good idea to pick up a copy of this book first.
I generally lead a healthy life with a balanced diet (or so I thought), but this book opened my eyes - some things that I thought were bad (e.g. chocolate, moderately consumed) can be good and others that I thought were good (e.g. soya milk and other soya products) are quite obviously unhealthy.
The book is well researched (in fact impressively scientific in its approach)and the author writes with refreshing honesty. Each chapter has a helpful bullet point list with easy ways to implement those things that the chapter dealt with.
I can't recommend this book enough for anyone wishing to improve their fertility or learn about fertility related issues (see for example the chapter on aphrodisiac foods...).
