The Perfect Fertility Diet
While there is no Perfect Diet in Fertility because each woman or couple comes with their unique health history which requires a customized diet plan for them, I’m sharing with you my basic principles I follow for almost all our fertility clients. So use these to build your health if you are trying to get pregnant:
#1 Eat 5 cups of cooked veggies daily. Spread it across breakfast, lunch & dinner. Potatoes don’t count as veggies.
SHOW: You can have your veggies in cooked or salad form. But 5 cups.
#2 1-2 cups of protein in EACH meal. Breakfast, lunch & dinner. No escaping protein☺
Eggs, chicken or fish if you’re non vegetarian. Minimize red meat.
SHOW: Chole, rajma, & dals if you are vegetarian. Cooked Moong sprouts are better on protein than any dal.
#3 Good fats:
SHOW A fistful of walnuts, almonds, & seeds like pumpkin, melon or flax. Add coconut to your meals. Cook your food in ghee or cold pressed oils.
#4 Just one serving or rice or roti or bread at any meal.
SHOW That’s half cup of cooked rice or pasta, 1 slice bread or one small roti. This is more than enough.
#5 Fruit: one small bowl before 4pm daily.
SHOW: small NOT big bowl.
& if you tolerate dairy, a glass of buttermilk at lunch. Avoid dahi at dinner.
