I often hear from women who are trying to conceive a boy baby. Some of the more common topics are foods, nutrition, and diet. Most people suspect that what you eat can have an impact over which gender you ultimately conceive. This perception is true. But, it’s usually not as simple as adding a few foods to your diet and hoping for the best. To have the best results, you’ll often have to have a very deliberate and methodical approach so that you aren’t just guessing. I will discuss this more in the following article.
The Reason That Foods And Diet Can Affect Whether You Have A Boy Or A Girl Baby: Before I get into specific foods, I want to briefly explain the reason behind this whole theory. Certain surroundings are friendly or beneficial to the sperm that produce a certain gender. For example, the Y sperm which produce boys do not thrive when acidity is involved. This is their worst case scenario. So, to give them the best chance for success, you are better off introducing an alkaline environment.
But, if you are trying for a girl baby, then just the opposite is true. While the X producing sperm (which produce girls) is more hardy and can basically get by in either environment, you are better off focusing on acidity because you are wanting to discourage or deteriorate the boy producing sperm. Making yourself more acidic in one way to do this. So to recap, for a girl you want to be acidic and for a boy you want to be alkaline.
The Alkaline Foods To Eat When You’re Trying To Get Pregnant With A Baby Boy: Basically, you want to consume alkaline rather than acidic foods. And, you don’t want to place any caloric limitations on yourself because studies have shown us that a higher number of calories favors producing boy babies. (However, the statistics aren’t so compelling that you need to put on any weight in order to achieve this.)
Now generally speaking, you will sometimes hear that fruits and vegetables are alkaline while meats and dairy are acidic. This is true for some of the foods in both categories, but there are always exceptions to this rule so it’s important to be careful. (And it’s even better to test this out for yourself.) For example, while lemons and watermelon are examples of highly alkaline fruits and vegetables, blueberries and plums fall into the acidic category.
Some examples of fruits and vegetables that are desirable and alkaline are things like apricots, spinach, raisins, lima beans, peaches, carrots, cucumbers, lettuce and tomatoes, and cantaloupe. Some examples of acidic foods that you want to avoid are things like blueberries, asparagus, whole grains and bread, corn, cheeses, milk, nuts, and many meats.
The Cooking And Metabolizing Process Can Affect Whether A Food Is Alkaline Or Acidic In Your Particular Case: There are many things that affect whether a food is ultimately acidic or alkaline to the particular person who is eating it. Examples are things like it’s freshness or ripeness and whether it is cooked or not. Also, some foods start out acidic but become alkaline once they are metabolized in the body. Lemons are one example. (But this applies to lemons that were fresh when picked. Things get a bit dicey when the fruit is picked when not yet ripe and then ripens in the store.)
Since there are many variables that go into how a food is metabolized, I often tell people that it’s best to start out with a good food list but to test things for themselves. With PH testing strips, you can take your reading before a meal and then take it again after you eat to see if you are actually getting the results that you are hoping for. Everyone is different. A good food list is a great place to start, but you can typically do even better than this by testing to make sure that you are getting the reading and reaction that you need to get the baby boy that you want. Also, adding douching to the changes in your diet can often bring about more dramatic results.
I often tell people that making guesses when you are trying to chose your baby’s gender is the absolutely worst thing that you can do. Guessing about your ovulation day or whether you have a an acidic or alkaline reading is not optimal, especially when you can easily check these things to make sure that you are right. The testing strips are inexpensive enough that you really should try to incorporate them into your regimen.
Taking It Even Further: Acidity is important. But, you will also need to look at when and how you conceive. The timing of when you conceive (as this relates to ovulation) and which sexual positions that you use can also affect your baby’s gender. So, you will likely also want to look at timing and positioning as well as the foods that you consume and your diet.
