I really hope this is on topic.

I am looking for info on how the people who live in the wild prepare with food their women. I have read several things about it, but i just can't seem to find anything at the moment.I hope somebody has suggestions, where i could look it up... Please.. Big thanks

The book "Sacred Birthing" talks about it too. I loaned out my copy, so I can't confirm right now, but I'm pretty sure it was in there. http://www.sacredbirthing.com/about-us/sacred-birthing-books/

I too have read this, but can't quite place where. I'm sure it is in one of these books I have kicking around here. I'll starting flipping through them and see if I can locate it.

I'm guessing Ancient Bodies was paleo 1.0 inspired, I'd love to see a revised version at some point. I try not to throw the baby out with the bathwater water though, and just gloss over the bits that include "lowfat dogma". I replace "lean meat" with "organ meat" in my head.

I thought ancient bodies, modern lives was an excellent book however IIRC the author recommends a low fat diet. For a recommendation for what exactly to eat to promote fertility - I think that the menu plans the Chris Kresser has in his Healthy Baby Code are great.

You could ask them :) If they are not there, it must mean they did something wrong :P

I've read in several places that there was an emphasis on young couples getting the priority on organ meats.

I concur, it's worth reading his book for that very reason.

Weston Price's whole book is available online here.

It's worth reading.

In the later chapters he goes into some specific things primitive cultures did for their pregnant women.

Chris Kresser's series on childbirth is well referenced, did you look there as a starting point?

Springboard page http://chriskresser.com/naturalchildbirth
Undisturbed birth has references regarding primitive peoples http://chriskresser.com/why-undisturbed-birth

The Weston A Price foundation has a lot of information on nourishment for fertility. Their information is based on indigenous peoples, not always hunter-gatherers. I know Chris Kresser, "The Healthy Skeptic" has a series/ class available for purchase. Basically what you're going to find is an emphasis on healthy fats, organ meat, seafood.

"Sex, Time, and Power-How Women's Sexuality Shaped Evolution" by Leonard Shlain goes into this a fair amount. Certainly not a "how to" if you are looking for practical advice to create a menu, but I thought it was a damn interesting read about how women's unique nutritional needs determined the division of resources and shaped our culture.

Yar! There was one other book I was going to recommend for you but I'm totally blanking on it right now, I will add it as soon as I remember.

EDIT: Aha, here it is, http://www.amazon.com/Ancient-Bodies-Modern-Lives-Evolution/dp/0195388887?tag=vglnk-c27-20
