A recent study looked at the impact of a processed modern diet on fertility. This study evaluatedΒ  areas of India that have recently adopted an urban diet with processed foods. They found that women who ate an urban diet were more likely to have problems with hormonal imbalances like what is found in polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Women who have PCOS are more likely to have difficulty conceiving. This suggests that as areas of India become more urbanized, infertility may become even more common.Β 

 

What you can do to optimize your fertility when trying to conceive:

βœ…Eat a whole foods plant-based diet

βœ…Avoid heavily processed foods like fast food

βœ…Cook your own meals whenever possible

βœ…Eat meat sparingly
