Eat yourself pregnant

From The Times
January 17, 2008

For the past 25 years I have worked as a nutritionist, specialising in women’s health, and have seen thousands of people for many different reasons. But by far the most common, divisive and traumatic problem for which both men and women seek help is fertility.

Here, I highlight the speediest and most useful ways in which you can help yourself to get pregnant, fast (the fuller version is in my new book). My plan is designed for any woman who wants to have a baby, whether she is thinking about it or has been trying with no results.

STEP ONE:
TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR DIET


If you’re sceptical about the connection between food and fertility, bear in mind that your body uses the nutrients from the food that you eat – and the supplements that you take – to repair cells, produce hormones and, ultimately, produce healthy eggs and sperm. In many ways your fertility depends upon what you eat.

Carbohydrates

These are your key energy source.

Protein

This is important for your fertility because it helps to maintain blood sugar balance and gives your body the even supply of amino acids it needs for building and repairing cells, manufacturing hormones and a healthy reproductive system.

Dairy products

Some studies indicate that dairy products have a beneficial effect on fertility because of their calcium content, while others have found that milk-drinking women tend to be less fertile when older. My issue with dairy foods is their production and their possible hormonal effect on your body at a time when hormones need to be functioning normally in both partners.

Fats

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) found in nuts, seeds and oily fish, on the other hand, play a crucial role in fertility and the development of a healthy baby.

Caffeine

Researchers have found that caffeine can have an adverse affect on female fertility, so if you want to conceive it makes sense to cut it out altogether.

STEP TWO:
CHANGE YOUR LIFESTYLE


If you smoke, quit

Alcohol

Like smoking, alcohol can interfere with your fertility. One study found that alcohol intake was a significant predictor for infertility among women above the age of 30.

Stress

Too much stress can interfere with sex hormone production.

STEP THREE:
TAKE FERTILITY-BOOSTING SUPPLEMENTS


Standard medical advice is to get all the nutrients you need from a balanced diet. Unfortunately, even if you do try to eat healthily, your food may not always contain all you need. To ensure that you do get all you need I strongly advise taking supplements.

See, the headline makes it look as if some lady ate a fruit and went 'Holy moley! I'm preggers! Thank you oh orange, father of my child!'

But good article nevertheless.

Two coffees a day doubles risk of miscarriage, says US study

Monday January 21 2008
Guardian. UK


Women are being advised to cut out caffeine during the first three months of pregnancy, to help reduce their risk of having a miscarriage.

The warning follows a study that found pregnant women who consumed two or more mugs of coffee a day were twice as likely to miscarry than those who abstained from caffeine completely.

The study of 1,063 pregnant women showed that those who had at least 200mg of caffeine each day had a 25% risk of miscarriage compared with a 12% risk for women who avoided all caffeine, including in tea, soft drinks and chocolate.

Food is not the only factor... hormones too you know.

Be caution when eating fertility supplements... eat it with doctor advise. Please don't do your own home remedy.

Try becoming pregnant...and you'll understand how hard it is to eat healty while vomiting and having nausea feeling and all. Before pregnant you love milk but when you pregnant you have to force yourself to drink one. :p
