    Granola is GREAT, especially when it has nuts!
    Thank u so much Atomic! Do you have any good advice on how to increase your appetite? I feel that sometimes I have to force myself to eat, especially when I'm tired. It scares me a bit because I'm afraid it might ruin my blue sway. Then I wonder how I in the best way can eat more salt?

    Don't worry about eating salt. The theory on salt never made any sense and we gave up on it and our results are higher than ever. Just eat to taste.

    If you have a light appetite and can never eat as much as some other people, that is ok! The important thing is that you're eating more than you were! Don't compare yourself to other people, compare yourself to yourself!

    Thank you Atomic. I have a question about folic acid. I read that you need to take 2000mcg folic acid per day for blue sway. According to the Swedish Medicines Agency, the recommendation is to take a maximum of 500 mcg per day. Isn't it dangerous with too much folic acid? I know that ur rekommendation her on GD is always safe so im just wondering. Another question is that my husband now takes medication for pollen allergy and will probably do so during the summer. Could it affect our blue sway if we want ttc in the fall? Thank you so much for your time Atomic !!

    I conceived a baby boy with a neural tube defect taking 800 mcg a day plus eating a super healthy diet that had lots of additional folic acid in it. Many, many sources (including a lot of prenatal vitamin manufacturers and gynecological organizations) recommend 1000 in addition to a diet that has FA/folate in it. Some of the things people use for sways such as green tea may block folic acid (and indeed, I was drinking a very small amount of green tea when I conceived my son with the NTD). Excess sodium, herbal supplements (which people take against my wishes very often) and the things like baking soda drink, Ural, Alka Seltzer some people insist on using also block and cause excess excretion of folic acid and folate.

    I have the blue sway recommendation for FA/folate set at that level to protect against any neural tube defects even with the green tea, high sodium, herbs, and other things people may ingest over my wishes. Also in case of twins, which may need that higher level of folic acid. Boys may even need somewhat more to begin with, since they need more of all nutrients. It just seems like a good idea to me and my research indicates it is fully safe if you take it as directed and wean off at the end of the first trimester.

    Most of us who have baby with NTD are told to take 4000-5000 mcg with subsequent pregnancies. It is not believed harmful for anyone without the MTHFR mutation to take folic acid in this amount, and it is fine for everyone to take folate in that amount (so if you are worried about it, just use folate, it can't harm you.) during the first trimester. You will just urinate out any excess. After that point taking extra FA may be harmful but we have you wean off at that point to the amount in a prenatal.

    Thank you so much Atomic for this explanation. How much gelatin juice can you drink per day for blue sway? Can I use gelatin powder from the Great Lakes brand that is from beef and not pork? Regarding 9 servings of fruit, must it be fruit or can it be vegetables too?

    Yes the Great Lakes stuff is fantastic.

    I wouldn't go overboard with the gelatin drink. 1-2 a day is plenty.

    Yes it can be vegetables and we count juice, lemon water, coconut water as fruit/veg.
