Diet is essential as you prepare your body for a baby...and something that so many couples get wrong!
I wanted to dig into the pro's and con's of the keto diet, because I speak to so many women who are doing this diet. It's like the paleo craze a few years ago!
We always recommend starting with an elimination diet (it's the gold standard - to figure out how food impacts your body).
In this episode you'll learn:
1) What is a therapeutic ketogenic diet and how it is different from the regular keto diet. We get to the bottom if dairy is a good for fertility.
2) We discuss if intermittent fasting is recommended for women who are trying to conceive. This is a must listen if you are dealing with blood sugar dysregulation, PCOS, obesity or insulin resistance.
3) What are the con's with keto and fertility. Hint - if you're eating processed keto foods (such as keto bars - listen in!). We discuss keto meals and snacks that are easy to make.
4) Can keto help with male fertility? We discuss whether keto is helpful for the adrenals and thyroid health or harmful.
