Can food really increase my chances of getting pregnant? Can nutrition really change my fertility outcome? Can I increase my chances of success with my fertility treatments?
Yes! If you have been having trouble getting pregnant, there are many things you can do to help increase your chances of getting and staying pregnant. They are small changes in your diet every day to create a naturally fertile environment to reach your goals of having your baby!
Studies show whole grains, healthy fats, lean protein sources, plant-based proteins and an assortment of fruits and vegetables, together with a healthy lifestyle have a significant and positive effect on fertility outcomes. Did you know studies show that if you replace 25g/day of animal protein with 25g/day of plant protein, your odds of getting pregnant increase by 50%?
