Dear Nutritionist,
My husband and I are trying to conceive. Could you possibly give me an example of a day with a well balanced diet? I know you need your vitamins, fruits and vegetables. However, I am very petite and never needed to watch my weight. In fact, I am always trying to put on a few pounds. Please help me to understand exactly what a well balanced diet contains. I know I need to be patient. I just want to make sure I am doing this right.
