Can Your Diet Increase Your Fertility?

Harvard Researchers studying 18,000 women found those on a fertility diet were six times more likely to conceive.

Their research found that the fat in whole dairy products like milk and ice cream improve fertility.

Experts also advise would-be moms to stay away from trans fats, or at least limit consumption to no more than four grams a day.

Foods that increase fertility are:

  • good proteins
  • slow carbs, like vegetables, fruits and brown rice

Foods that decrease your chances of getting pregnant are:

  • Fast carbs, which are found in white rice, white bread and white sugar
  • red meat

Dr. Koren Barrett of the University of California says this is because

“higher insulin levels and higher glucose levels or sugar levels in our blood disrupt our hormones.”
