Medical research has made incredible advances in the fertility field, allowing couples struggling with infertility to conceive with techniques such as in vitro fertilization. Sometimes, however, the importance of lifestyle modifications to improve fertility can be overlooked. It’s important to maintain a healthy weight to support your fertility, for instance, and the foods you choose may be equally important.
For example, unless you are already a vegetarian, replace some or all of the animal sources of protein that you eat with vegetable-based protein sources. Eat a handful of nuts for a snack and replace the ground beef in a meal with legumes. You could also try replacing one of your nonfat or low-fat dairy products with full-fat products, such as whole milk or full-fat yogurt. Remember to take any multivitamins recommended by your fertility doctor, including folic acid and iron supplements.
