Welcome to the fourth issue of Fertility Diet Guidelines – After Ovulation is the theme this week.
If your egg was released by your ovary and successfully fertilized – Congratulations! The embryo now has the task of implantation during this time of your cycle.
It is recommended to eat pineapple as it contains bromaline, an enzyme that promotes implantation to take place. You should also avoid drinking icy cold beverages and cold raw foods. Cold foods deprive your body heat that is necessary to nourish your uterus.
Your body now needs foods that increase vital energy. Eat soups that are prepared with lots of legumes and vegetables at each meal.
Make sure your food is properly cooked in case you are pregnant to avoid food poisoning.
DO NOT eat refined carbohydrates, sugars and processed foods. Avoid drinking tap water and make sure to drink purified water or spring water from a reliable source.
In order to drink the proper amount of water – take your weight in pounds and divide it by two. This should be the equivalent in ounces of water you need to drink each day.
It is important to follow a healthy lifestyle at least 3 – 4 months prior to getting pregnant. Quit smoking, avoid alcohol and coffee. Make sure to get enough sleep every night.
Avoid wearing toxic hair spray, gels and make up. Switch to a non-toxic brand.
