Conversely, diets severely deficient in protein can severely disrupt the menstrual cycle, interfere with ovulation, and create fertility problems on both a long and a short term basis.
In addition, once you are pregnant, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists suggests your daily diet should contain at least 200 calories a day from protein - which can help increase your baby's birth weight and may protect you from premature delivery.
To help balance your body chemistry and optimize fertility you may also want to add more complex carbohydrates to your diet- like the yummy whole wheat croissant pictured here! Other foods high in complex carbohydrates include whole grain breads, fruits, green vegetables and whole wheat pasta or spelt.
At the same time your ovulation pattern and your fertility may benefit, and you may actually have an easier time getting pregnant if you reduce your intake of sugary snacks and foods high in processed carbohydrates such as white bread, white cake flour, white rice, or snack cakes. New studies show eliminating these foods from your diet may help promote more efficient functioning of neurotransmitters that carry important hormonal signals from the brain to the reproductive organs - which is how your fertility benefits.
Most important, remember that nutrition is an inter-dependant concept. Each food you eat needs components of other foods in order to provide you with the maximum benefits. When your diet is balanced all the nutrients you consume are super effective - and that means your fertility is optimized - ovulation works more efficiently, getting pregnant is easier - and conception odds are higher. Without this nutritional team work, your fertility can suffer!

Generally speaking, many of the most common fertility problems, including ovulatory problems, and irregular ovulation have been shown to respond to diet. And in fact, most women are able to have a faster and easier conception when they increased their protein intake by about 10 to 12% over what they normally eat - particularly in the form of soy protein, or very lean beef or poultry.
How can this help your fertility?
Studies show that all meals high in protein, but especially those containing lean, red meat can impact fertility and increase pregnancy odds by promoting healthy ovulation & better ovulatory function in general.
