A mother who wants to have a boy should eliminate dairy products from her diet and eat more fruits and vegetables. The recommended diet for determining the gender of a female fetus is to eliminate salt in food. From the group of fruits and vegetables, the mother can eat carrots, cucumbers, green beans, apples, radishes, potatoes, and onions.
By studying a group of volunteer women, experts found that by following this diet, 80% of them gave birth to a girl child. On the other hand, women who used more foods containing potassium and sodium, such as bananas and potatoes, were more likely to give birth to boys, although this second case has not yet been tested separately.
These experts believe that following a specific and correct diet will help young couples determine the gender of their child to a large extent.
According to the Daily Mail newspaper, this diet should be used several weeks before becoming pregnant. In order to achieve the above results, these experts tested 172 couples who wanted to have a girl child for 5 years.
● What should we eat?
Certain types of fruits and vegetables should be chosen regularly throughout the day due to their special nutritional value, and these are the types that contain vitamins A and C and fiber. Variety is also an important point, because fruits and vegetables provide other nutrients such as folate, potassium, calcium and iron.
A varied choice makes us benefit from more benefits of fruits and vegetables. According to the advice of nutritionists, taking dietary supplements instead of fruits and vegetables is a mistake. Because supplements do not have the known or unknown nutritional benefits of fruits and vegetables. Foods rich in folate reduce the risk of birth defects. Dry beans, cabbage, asparagus, tomato juice and orange juice are rich sources of folate.
● The size of each unit
According to the National Cancer Institute, one unit of fruits and vegetables is:
1) A medium fruit or half a cup of chopped fruit
2) Three quarters of a cup or 180 ml of pure fruit juice
3) A quarter of a cup of dried fruit
4) Half a cup of raw vegetables without leaves or cooked
5) A cup of green leafy vegetables such as lettuce
6) Half a cup of baked beans, peas, lentils, red beans and pinto beans
The National Cancer Institute recommends:
Choose at least one fruit or vegetable rich in vitamin A per day.
Choose at least one fruit or vegetable rich in vitamin C per day.
Choose at least one fiber-rich fruit or vegetable per day.
Several units of cabbage family vegetables per week have a protective role against some cancers.
