His and Her Foods for Maximum Fertility
- Whole Grains
As if there isn’t already enough incentive to make the switch to whole grains, it appears that it helps with female fertility as well. Because good insulin function is imperative to healthy fertility, and whole grains don’t burden the endocrine system like processed flour does, it appears that eating whole grains like wheat bread and brown rice, as opposed to the white varieties, may help you conceive.
- Dairy Products (The Real Stuff)
Females are notorious for skimping on real dairy products like cheese, milk, and butter in an effort to maintain their figures, but researchers at Harvard have found this to be harmful to the ovulation process. Instead of skipping the dairy altogether, try just one serving of the full-fat stuff a day.
When it comes to fertility, little changes can make a big difference. If you’re having trouble getting pregnant, try tweaking your diet just a bit, and see if it has an effect. If it does, not only will you be happily expecting, but you’ll have saved a ton of money on expensive fertility treatments, not to mention all the stress that goes along with them.
