Daniel asks…

What kind of diet should i go on before getting pregnant?

My husband and I are thinking about trying to conceive in a year. I want to get really healthy and do all i can to be more “concievable”. Is there or are there any diets that women should go on to before getting pregnant to help ensure a healthy baby?

Power Health Tips answers:

Just eat a healthy diet & avoid excessive alcohol. Lots of fresh fruit & veggies, use hormone free chicken & try to avoid processed foods. Avoid excessive fats as well. When you start ttc, avoid alcohol altogether. If you or your partner smokes, now would be a good time to quit.

At least 3 months before you start trying to conceive, start on a good pregnancy/breastfeeding supplement.
When you are pregnant you’ll need more protein, as well as certain vitamins and minerals such as folic acid, iron, and calcium. You will also only need about 300 additional calories per day (when you are pregnant).

Whilst pregnant also avoid undercooked eggs and meat, unpasteurized dairy products and juices, raw seafood, and cold deli meats to avoid ingesting bacteria that could harm your baby. Also avoid certain fish that may contain high levels of mercury or other contaminants.

I wish you all the best!
