Food and Fertility

What to eat, what not to eat, when to eat, how much to eat? Are these questions that you ask yourself, at least in reference to becoming pregnant? Do any of them matter when it comes to fertility, healthy pregnancy and a healthy child? Does the idea of yet another major lifestyle adjustment make your head spin?  The research is clear. It does matter. It matters a lot.


I believe that eating should be fun, adventurous, delicious and never restrictive, even if an individual is trying to lose weight.  Changes don’t have to mean restrictions, although different choices may be necessary. For some of us it can be a challenge to food shop, prepare meals, and screen food labels for misleading information. All that can be time consuming and even exhausting, BUT it does not have to be overwhelming.  Well-balanced eating supports both male and female fertility so if you are in a relationship, this is something you would do together.


This is not the time for fad diets and supplements that promise fat burning and rapid weight loss. This is the time for well balanced, well designed, planned food preparation and eating.


We are here to help in a real, practical way.


We are offering 2 Saturday programs for patients and their partners, together, to attend. (You are welcome to attend without a partner as well.)  In a workshop atmosphere, learn practical and nutritious fertile-friendly meal planning tips.  You will also have a chance to review the benefits of mindful eating practices. 


I do hope you will be able to join me and my RMACT peers at our spring workshop.
