What foods to eat and avoid when trying to get pregnant...
The food you eat can affect your fertility.
We are often asked if fertility can be ‘boosted’ by eating specific foods or following a specific diet. As a general rule, we suggest eating a well-balanced diet with a focus on fresh vegetables and fruit. However, food choice is not a one size fits all decision.
We suggest limiting or eliminating these items from your diet:
Junk food and candy
Processed or bleached foods
Cold food and drink
Ice cream / frozen yogurt
Refined / processed oils
Large fish (Tuna and Halibut)
It has been suggested these foods may assist with fertility, but again, consult your health care practitioner to help determine what choices you should make:
red, purple and dark green foods
pumpkin and flax seeds
foods that tend to warm
emphasis on green vegetables
