Funny you mention this. I was JUST NOW looking up info on this topic.This book
has gained a bit of attention - as a specifically fertility related 'diet book'. However, I am somewhat leery - it is connected with the recent Womens Journal study about dairy and fertility...which I'm not sure I agree with.
Here is my thought. The journal points out the benefits of full-fat dairy foods as opposed to the popular low-fat, skim...etc options that many people consume. Obviously - this goes back to a - WHOLE FOOD IS BETTER. Soon as you start modifying something, of course you are probably compromising its 'goodness'.
Of all the foods that may have some bearing on your HORMONES - which affect fertility - dairy is huge. There are tons of added hormones in dairy, specifically MILK.
I consume TONS of dairy. Eggs, cheese, milk...etc etc. And usually full-fat versions. I have bad acne spots on my back - since quitting birth control - and that is usually an indication of high TESTOSTERONE levels. Which I'm now convinced is all connected to the LATTE I drink every morning...milk in my cereal...cheeses and creams in my dinners.
I have been at this TTC for our first for 8 months now. And am having issues. Everything else appears to be functioning fine. So to me - I read 'dairy good for fertility' and think...hmmmmm REALLY? I've just been advised by nutrionist to 'try' giving it up for awhile. Switching to hemp or almond milk instead.
SOOOOOOOO...here is a book on a fertility diet - but I'm throwing caution in the wind. you may want to read that FIRST REVIEW as well - its very interesting. and I am leaning towards agreeing with the reviewer...
wow. TMI maybe?
