High Protein Diet may Inhibit Conception
-- Women on the Atkins diet, or a low-carbohydrate /high-protein diet, may have a lower chance of conceiving than those women who follow a regular diet.

Research has shown that mice which were fed a high-protein diet conceived less frequently.

As well, the mice that did conceive on a high-protein diet, had a higher rate of difficulty with their embryos in the early stages of development.

High Protein, Low Carb Diets Greatly Improve Fertility

-- A diet rich in proteins appears to have a pronounced positive effect on fertility, according to new research presented today at the Annual Clinical Meeting of The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

Women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments who consumed high levels of protein and low levels of carbohydrates had better quality eggs and embryos.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
