While the diets and cook books posted on in-gender is the best one for gender swaying; some people find it hard to maintain.  The very next best diet (I think) to the one posted on ig is the French Gender diet(unless your ttc a boy and have high blood pressure; then do the alkaline diet).  This diet allows more food than the diet posted on in-gender.  Therefore, you have to be very strict even in the 2ww (no cheating ever!) The French diet can be done up two years without a breakAccording to the book you must be doing the diet for 2 1/2 months before ttc.  Now this book is in French; so if you can't read French don't bother buying it (if you can read French then do buy it!). HOWEVER, THERE is a English version!!  The French diet book looked at the original gender diet made in the united states and did there own experiments.  They use a much larger study group.  The following information has all be provided by Revedebleu.  She did the translation and dictation of the books; and has provided all the follow information: The name of the book is Choisissez Le Sexe de Votre Enfant: par la methode du regime alimentaire by Francoise Labro et Dr. Francois Papa
