7 Steps to Boost Fertility Fast

You can boost your fertility - and you can boost your fertility fast.

Maybe you've been waiting years to get pregnant, or maybe you just decided it's baby time - whatever the case, these 7 steps will get you solidly on the way to a healthy pregnancy and a happy baby.

Step 1: Eat a Fertility Diet

Though there are seven steps in this plan, this one is the first you should make - and the easiest. Diet changes may feel overwhelming at first, but you can make them little by little over a few weeks and see big benefits.

High Protein & Low Carb

Researchers have proven that a high protein, low carbohydrates diet "greatly improves" fertility1.

It’s not surprising to discover that this diet also helps with insulin resistance, which is thought to play a part in PCOS 2. Changing your diet over to low-carb and high protein improves insulin response and it also helps your body maintain optimal hormone levels.

An easy way to start to make this change is to reduce grain products in your diet. Here are some example meals: 

​Breakfast

  • ​Eggs with sauteed vegetables
  • ​Smoothie made with kefir, almond milk, strawberries, and some "hidden" greens
  • ​Fried eggs with turkey bacon

​Lunch

  • ​A large, loaded salad
  • ​Egg salad served on lettuce leaves
  • ​Burger sliders with cheese served on lettuce bed - feel free to load with your favorite burger toppings (skip sugary ketchup)

​Supper

  • ​Meatballs and marinara sauce served over spaghetti squash
  • ​Roast chicken, small sweet potato, green salad
  • ​Burger sliders with cheese served on lettuce bed - feel free to load with your favorite burger toppings (skip sugary ketchup)

​As you can see, each of these meals provides plenty of protein and keeps the carb-count low, too.

​Quick Tip: You can enjoy fruits on a low-carb diet, but choose those that are naturally low-carb, like blueberries and strawberries. A few apple slices spread lightly with peanut butter are another sweet and protein-filled snack.

Eat Enough - And Get Healthy Fats

​In addition to eating a low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet, you need to make sure you're eating enough. It's true that you don't need as much as you will when you hit your 2nd and 3rd trimester of pregnancy, but you do need quality calories now.
