LET THEM EAT MEAT
Study: High Protein Diet Improves Fertility
Apparently eating eggs is good for your eggs. Women who consume a high-protein diet appear to have better chances of getting pregnant through in vitro fertilization than those who load up on carbs, according to a new study from the American College of Obstetrician and Gynecologists. The study’s lead researcher Dr. Jeffrey Russell examined 120 patients and found that women whose daily protein intake accounted for more than 25 percent of their diet—and who limited their carbohydrate consumption to 40 percent or less per day—had four times the pregnancy rates of other patients. For some, that may be reason enough to give the Atkins diet a go.
