Importance of Folic Acid and Omega-3 in a Pregnancy Diet Plan

While reading an article related to a pregnancy diet plan that Isabela had written about Omega-3, I realised that we are in serious trouble with mercury toxic poisoning of our ocean environment, and how it can potentially impact even our pregnancy and fetal development, if we're not informing ourselves of the potential dangers while doing our best to have a healthy pregnancy by incorporating Omega Fish Oils through eating certain types of fish.

This has me wondering how this potential danger might be lurking in the daily Omega-3 supplements I'm taking for my own health maintenance. Below follows an excerpt of this article:

Omega-3 is important for your unborn baby to develop his brain and nervous system. Fish is one of the richest sources of this nutrient. Although fish is an essential part of a diet during pregnancy, some types contain high levels of mercury and should be avoided.

Eating too much mercury-tainted fish can damage to your unborn baby's nervous system. Large predatory fish like swordfish, shark, tilefish and king mackerel contain the highest levels of mercury and are a definite no-no for you to eat when you're pregnant.

Mercury is an element that is found naturally in the environment. When this substance is released into the air, it falls into the water and settles to the bottom. When this happens, the mercury converts to methylmercury and becomes toxic. When the fish that live in contaminated waters feed on other fish, the methylmercury enters their bodies, and accumulates over time.

Safe fish choices during pregnancy include:
• anchovies
• scallops
• wild salmon
• ocean perch
• whitefish
• shrimp
• herring
• catfish
• butterfish
• rock lobster
• sole
• squid
• tilapia
• sardines

Review of The Diet Solution Program: The Program that Promises Fat Loss along with an incredible amount of Health and Vitality.

When I look for a diet plan, I look for something that doesn't make exagerations and  misleading promises that has me believing in a quick, easy, effortless and overnight slim and trim new "me". Rather I look for a credible person, with the credentials and lifestyle to back up what they are saying. Oh yes, they must talk the talk and walk the walk. I'm looking for a role-model and mentor to guide me on my chosen journey.
When I came upon Isabel's program, I was hooked from the word go. Just watching her  videos I learnt so much about what to eat and what not to eat. She offers value, period. You can watch the video on the link that follows.
The Diet Solution Program promises a complete and comprehensive weight loss program that will not only help you lose body fat, but guarantees you increased energy, health and vitality all at the same time.
With so many weight loss programs out on the market and on the internet today, what makes this program any different than all the rest?
Before we get to the program, let’s take a look at the expert behind this program. Isabel De Los Rios is a nutrition and exercise specialist with 10 years of experience helping clients reach their ideal weight and tackle conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and high cholesterol. Isabel has a very extensive educational background in nutrition and exercise physiology. Her personal experience with her own weight struggles and her mother’s severe diabetes led her search for the BEST nutrition information available today. The Diet Solution Program is a result of her 15 year study and research.
Isabel provides her readers with the truth: the facts most people have never taken the time to research, read and decipher.
Plus, Isabel has been a nutrition and exercise specialist for the past 10 years and has personally worked with hundreds of clients in her own private facility, overseeing successful weight loss programs. This hands on experience with real people solidified the facts and principles she had learned in books, journals and from other health professionals. The proof was really in the results of real people.
In fact, Isabel’s articles are pretty radical when it comes to her nutrition principles which is why her approach works when main-stream nutrition fails. So if you are looking for the same old nutrition theories taught in every other book and program on the market today, this is not the program for you.
Now one of the biggest questions is simply, “What is The Diet Solution Program?” Well according to Isabel, it is the most comprehensive and detailed nutrition manual available on the market today. Not only does it teach you exactly what principles you need to follow to finally reach your ideal weight, it gives you the meal plans, shopping lists and recipes to do so. It does not push some extreme, unreasonable way to lose weight. It actually teaches you how you can make this healthy way of eating into a lifestyle. And if you have ever attempted to lose weight in the past, you know that the only way to maintain it is to make it a way of life. The best part about Isabel’s program is that this new way of life is not some torturous eating regimen. She really shows you that you can eat delicious food, combined the right way, to lose weight and maintain it.
One of the best side effects of the whole program is the increased health and vitality that every participant experiences. Decreases in blood sugar levels, lowered cholesterol, increased energy, elimination of digestive discomfort and cleared skin conditions are just some of the few benefits other people have already experienced.
Now realize that some effort from you will be required, but Isabel has really done all the hard work for you. Included in her program is:
  • Step by step action steps telling you exactly how to put the principles in place
  • Detailed daily meal plans that make everyday eating easy
  • Shopping Lists to make food shopping a snap
  • Delicious Recipes to make everyday meals tasty
The manual is comprehensive. Jam packed with incredible and valuable information. But you don’t need to wait to get through the whole thing before you can start. You can use Isabel’s Quick Start Guide to start the program ASAP. Some people have even just used the quick start guide and lost 10-15lbs in a little as 6 weeks.
The Diet Solution Program is not just another weight loss scheme or extreme diet. It is truly the only way to lose weight and enjoy a lifetime of health. The Diet Solution Program is perfect for people who have struggled with their weight their whole life and are sick and tired of programs that just don’t work long term. The DSP is also perfect for people who want to take control of their health and reverse health conditions like diabetes, high cholesterol and heart disease.
If you’re in the slightest bit curious, I recommend you look closely at Isabel’s program. I was very impressed with all of The Diet Solution Program meal plans, the bonuses, the guarantee, and Isabel’s expertise. For the money, it’s the best deal in the weight loss industry – so much better than diet pills! And remember…
Isabel De Los Rios’s The Diet Solution Program is backed by a 60 day money back guarantee. And this is a real guarantee… if you are not completely satisfied, you will receive your money back, no “ifs,” “ands,” or “buts.” You really have nothing to lose.
