How to Get Your Diet Pregnancy Ready

What you eat can boost your odds of getting pregnant.

Iron
Get at least 18mg of iron a day. Heme iron is found in meat and fish. Non-heme iron is in beans and dark, leafy veggies, like spinach.

Calcium
Bone up on full-fat dairy products (as opposed to skim or low-fat versions) for more protection against ovulatory infertility.

Lycopene
Have your guy eat this too! This antioxidant is believed to mop up free radicals that can cause infertility.

Complex Carbs
Skip refined carbs that spike blood sugar levels, thus lowering chances of conception. Eat whole grains, brown rice and oatmeal instead.
