On the way to the fertility clinic last week, I started to wonder if I am doing everything I can to help me get pregnant. I know the fertility clinic is doing everything they can, but am I?
This lead me to realize that I am not. I know that people with PCOS should avoid sugar, carbs, and processed foods and guess what I eat every.single.day? Sugar, carbs, and processed foods. Do I want a baby as much as I want that piece of chocolate cake? We are about to find out.
I have decided to start a low carb/keto diet on Monday. I have done keto before and lost about 20 lbs in a month. I didn’t stick to the diet because I was only doing it to lose a few lbs (and I succeeded). This time, I am doing it for my fertility. I refuse to stop until I succeed. I am determine to make low carb a way of life for at least the next 6 months-a year. It may not cure my infertility, but it dang sure won’t hurt it.
Why am I paying the fertility clinic thousands of dollars to help me get pregnant if I am not going to try everything in my power to help them succeed?
Wish me luck! Please comment with any of your favorite low carb/keto recipes!
