A healthy body weight and diet is essential to increasing your chances of becoming pregnant. Sophisticated fertility treatment through diagnostic testing, powerful fertility medications, and high-tech Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) is greatly supplemented by a reliable fertility diet, according to Dr. Randy S. Morris – founder and medical director of IVF1.
It is very important to take advantage of the natural resources and tools available to help enhance the fertility treatment and pregnancy experience. Nutrition plays an essential role in improving the chances of conception and supporting a healthy pregnancy. Don’t wait until you are pregnant to get serious about eating healthy. Diet matters greatly before pregnancy and solidifies healthy eating habits during pregnancy.
Maintain a Healthy Body Mass Index (BMI)
Strive to achieve and maintain a healthy BMI to keep your reproductive cycle in balance. A BMI of 19 to 24 indicates a healthy weight. Anything above 24 or below 19 may be hindering your chances of ovulation and conception. Women eating diets high in trans fats, animal proteins, and carbohydrates are more likely to have an ovulatory disorder.
Reliable Fertility Diet Tips
Switch your protein sources by replacing the beef, port, or chicken you eat with vegetable protein sources. Vegetable protein sources include beans and nuts. Making this change can reduce a woman’s risk of ovulatory disorders by more than 50 percent.
Include high-fat dairy in high dosages. Avoid eating low-fat dairy products as these may increase your risk of an ovulatory disorder. Replace at least one low-fat dairy serving of dairy with a high-fat serving. For instance, replace low-fat ice cream with one glass of whole milk.
Make sure you take your vitamin supplements containing folic acid.
