About the Authors
Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin started a movement when they wrote their best-selling manifesto, Skinny Bitch. Both a wake-up call and a kick in the ass, Skinny Bitch exposed the horrors of the food industry while inspiring people to eat well and enjoy food. Freedman, a former agent for Ford models, has been studying nutrition for fifteen years. Barnouin, a former model, holds a Master of Science degree in Holistic Nutrition. She has one son, Jackson, whom she was pregnant with while researching this book. Both Bitches live in Los Angeles.
From Rory and Kim:
Congratulations. You’re knocked up. Chances are, you’ve dreamt of being pregnant since you were a little girl. So take a moment to acknowledge that you are living a dream and be thankful. Okay, that’s enough. You’ve got work to do. Being a good mother starts now. Unless you were raised by crackheads, you know that your diet is the most important factor in determining your baby’s health. Indeed, it’s an awesome responsibility, but don’t let it overwhelm you. It’s not rocket science. While there are a few specific things pregnant women do need to adhere to, overall, you just need to be healthy. Healthy mommy = healthy baby. So feel doubly blessed because your pregnancy will force you to finally prioritize your own well-being. Get psyched: you are about to embark on the most exciting journey of your lifetime—motherhood and optimal health!
