Thanks for explaining what the Blue Ribbon Diet is. If it's the Brewer diet, then I followed it, too (also learned about it in Bradley classes.) I did this with both children. I found it quite challenging to hit the protein goals each day, as we are mostly vegetarian and I am not used to eating SO much protein. But we generally eat very few refined carbs and so that part was easy for us. I had two healthy pregnancies, and big newborns (8 lbs 10 oz and 9 lbs 5 oz.) I really think that diet served me well and will follow its guidelines again this time. Just like Because, I gained 35-40 lbs in my pregnancies, but lost it all within 6 months of the babies being born. So, I guess that was all ok.
