IVF diet...I feel like there are a million things to remember

Between the medications, the anxiety...it's overwhelming. I want to do the right things but I feel like the worrying over everything will cause me to get a BFN!

I have PCOS so I was reading online that I should be eating a high protein, high fat diet. I already cut out *most* caffeine (down to 1 in the AM) and I don't drink alcohol. I drink plenty of water. I don't eat red meat or pork.

Any suggestions? I know chicken, beans...

If you have PCOS, you may want to reduce your sugar intake. Stay away for high fructose.

chickpeas are filled with fiber and protien. Saute it with Spinach and garlic! Yum.

Yep, I've def. been avoiding sugar for months now although I do admit I give in to ice cream or a piece of candy now and then....I've def. cut back on the sugar and carbs and have noticed a diff in my weight and just overall appearance...

Everyone keeps telling me to relax - I hate that! Chat Icon
