Everything Pregnant

Fertility Diet

Harvard researchers Jorge E. Chavarro, MD, and Walter C. Willett, MD, along with writer Patrick J. Skerrett, wrote that eating the right food could:
  • improves ovulation and fertility
  • offers a healthy start to a pregnancy
  • is good for the heart, bones, and the rest of the body throughout pregnancy and beyond 

The above group of researchers from Harvard Medical School carried out a study over eight years involving over 18,000 women. With solid scientific data, they made the following key recommendations from The Fertility Diet:

  • Avoiding trans-fats, the artery-clogging fats found in many commercial products and fast foods
  • Eating more vegetable protein, like beans and nuts, and less animal protein
  • Drinking a glass of whole milk or having a small dish of ice cream or full-fat yogurt every day; temporarily trading in skim milk and low or no-fat dairy products for their full-fat versions
  • Getting into the "fertility zones" for weight, which is the range of BMIs from 20 to 24.
