When a couple is trying to conceive a baby, the first thought they have is how to optimise the chances of getting pregnant? Well, though there are various other aspects to conceiving, one of the most important aspect is a good wholesome Fertility Diet which boosts the fertility of the man as well as the woman. In the recent times, there have been various superfoods that have been suggested to boost the nutrients in our body. However, the Fertility Diet is one of the few diets that requires you to optimise the nutrients in whatever you eat.

The diet follows the logic that replenishing the mineral deficiency in the body coupled with a disciplined lifestyle leads to a well balanced hormonal cycle which boosts fertility in both the sexes.

  1. Eating organic fruits and vegetables along with whole grains are better than their finely milled counterpart.
  2. Including high fibre in each meal is a healthy choice.
  3. Dark leafy vegetables contain a lot of Iron and Folic Acid.
  4. Eggs, nuts and seeds are rich in vitamins D and E.
  5. Foods to be avoided are Soy as it interferes hormonal cycle, refined sugary drinks and packaged fruit juice, and caffeine.
