Eat to Get Pregnant the Fertility Diet

What you eat affects all of your body's processes, fertility included. In fact, there are certain things you can eat and drink (and avoid eating and drinking!) to improve your fertility.

The importance of eating right

Most women spend so much time worrying about their fertility, and what they could be doing to improve their chances of getting pregnant, that they tend to overlook one of the most important aspects of fertility: eating right. What you eat affects all of your body’s processes, fertility included. In fact, there are certain things you can eat and drink (and avoid eating and drinking!) to improve your fertility.

Up your protein intake

We all know that lots of lean protein is important, but it appears that protein is especially important for women who are trying to conceive. Eating lots of protein is a great way to improve the health of your embryos and help your body produce better quality eggs.

Opt for full fat dairy

Now, here’s a theory that we can all get behind! Research actually suggests that women who are trying to conceive have better results when they opt for full fat dairy products like milk, ice cream, yogurt and cheese, instead of low fat or no fat versions. Of course, eating full fat dairy should be done in moderation, but don’t feel guilty if you reach for a bowl of “real” ice cream every now and then!

Calm down on the carbs

Of course, carbs are an essential part of any diet, but experts say that women need to watch the quality of the carbs they are eating, instead of paying so much attention to the quantity of the carbs. Most women think their best option is to try to cut out carbs completely, but research tells us that this just isn’t the case. You should try to limit the amount of refined carbs, like white bread, pasta and rice, and opt for unrefined carbs like brown rice, whole wheat bread and whole wheat pasta when possible. Eating too many refined carbs can cause insulin problems, ovulation problems, and more fertility issues.

Fire up the fish

While there are a few types of fish that women should avoid during pregnancy due to their high mercury content, eating fish while trying to conceive is a great way to boost fertility. Many women miss out on this because they are misinformed about mercury and fish. The Omega-3′s that are found in fish can be a great fertility booster and can do even more to boost your health and the health of your baby after you become pregnant. Salmon, tuna, herring and sardines are the best sources of Omega-3′s.

Take your vitamins

It can be hard to get all of the important vitamins, nutrients and minerals that you need in your diet every day, so make sure to take a quality multivitamin every single day. Make sure that your multivitamin has plenty of folic acid, since that is one of the most important nutrients for women who are trying to conceive and for women who are pregnant. If you need recommendations on a great multivitamin, ask your doctor for help in picking out the best one for you.
