Fertility Diet and Why is it Useful

Well, there is no way I can write this article by not making a bunch of my audience disappointed. But then again, we need to talk about some topics regardless of stereotypes. This article aims at educating you regarding a fertility diet. If you are someone who is struggling with pregnancy, this article might help you. By making incremental changes to your level of activity and diet, you can now increase your chances of getting pregnant. These changes revolve around consuming more full-fat dairy products as well as plant protein.

Again, there is no certainty that you will actually get pregnant by following this diet however, it does increase your chances to conceive. This diet is well-suited for women who struggle with polycystic ovary syndrome, ovulation disorders, damaged fallopian tubes, uterine polyps, immune system disorders, and endometriosis. While several male conditions such as sperm defect, low sperm count, immune system disorder and twisted spermatic cords might also lead to infertility, this diet isn’t intended to address these issues.

What difference can you make?

Women who are trying their best to get pregnant can introduce these 10 changes to their diet and lifestyle to increase their chances of conceiving. They include:

More Vegetable Protein:

Try to shift towards vegetable protein and reduce your intake of animal protein. You don’t necessarily have to quit consuming animal protein. You just have to reduce it.

Quit Trans-Fat:

Although trans-fat has been banned in several countries of the world, yet some countries continue to sell it regardless of its adverse effects. Trans-fat is found in fried items, margarine, shortening, etc.

Consume more unsaturated vegetable oil:

Instead of consuming regular oil, try to move towards unsaturated vegetable oil. This may include canola oil or olive oil.

Take multivitamins every day:

Incorporate multivitamins in your everyday life. Also, take folic acid with multi-vitamins.


Try consuming milk-fat every day till you get pregnant. This can be in the form of ice cream, full-fat yogurt, or a glass full of whole milk.

Reduce the intake of red meat:

Instead of getting iron from red meat, replace it with fruits, vegetables, supplements, and beans.

Start exercising daily:

If you already work out, try to work out more or harder but don’t overdo it.

Move towards a healthier body:

If you are a bit towards the chubbier side, it’s recommended that you lose 10-15% of your weight to jumpstart ovulation. If you are underweight, try to move towards a healthier BMI.

Healthy Drinks:

Reduce your intake of caffeine. Avoid artificial sugary drinks as well as sodas. Try to incorporate water into your diet. Drink at least 2 liters of water every day.

Many young women are of the view that they can start eating healthy as soon as they get pregnant. But the question is, why wait till you get pregnant? Why not start it now? Following a healthy diet before you conceive can actually increase your chances of getting pregnant, lower chances of abnormalities, and can even reduce the chances you developing preeclampsia.
