Welcome to day #2 of Mini-Series on how to optimize egg health so you can improve the chances of pregnancy success.
Our Fab Fertile Method includes a personalized approach to fertility and it all starts with optimal nutrition.
While there are many recommendations on which diet improves egg health are those recommendations right for you?
This episode for you if:
You’ve already changed your diet based on generalized recommendations to improve egg health but it’s still not working.
You are not sure which diet will help improve your egg health and you’re feeling very confused by all the recommendations
You are ready to optimize your diet to improve your chances of pregnancy success.
In this episode you’ll learn:
1) How much protein to consume and why protein at every meal helps to improve egg health.
2) Why restricting this macronutrient may adversely impact your egg health and fertility. It is so common we see this all the time. How to get more of this in your diet.
3) We break down why "no carbs" or 'keto" may not be the answer and how to know how many carbohydrates to consume for optimal egg health.
4) How to personalize your diet so you can fast track your pregnancy success. Remember it's about improving both egg and sperm health – so doing this with your partner is key
