Nutrition for Fertility

1- Keep blood sugar levels stable with regular meals or snacks
2- Put good stuff in – eat like your great grandma – traditional diets
3- Take bad stuff out – remove processed foods

General Philosophy

Vitamins and nutrients will be used by the most critically important organs first. If there is nothing left over, the other organs and tissues (including the reproductive system) will become deficient and have trouble functioning well.
Keep blood sugar levels stable with regular meals and snacks – Have something to eat every 4 to 6 hours.
Give your body what it needs to work hard, repair itself and have some left over for reproduction. It is especially important at the beginning of your journey to eat at regular intervals. When your blood sugar goes down dramatically the fuel for your cells runs low. Then your brain and uterus, for example, have less energy to function optimally.
Put good stuff in –
Give your body good materials to create hormones, build a nutrient-dense uterine lining, and make healthy eggs or sperm.
Eat vitamin and mineral-rich foods.
Eat organic foods whenever possible.
Take bad stuff out –
Remove extra work your body might have to do by reducing and avoiding foods that cause inflammation. Every person is different and may respond differently to all foods, however, there are some foods that very commonly will increase whole-body inflammation.
Avoid the foods highest in pesticides. The top 12 crops to avoid are commonly referred to as the “dirty dozen”.
