Foods That Affect Gender
Alkaline foods like lemons, watermelons, pumpkins, cauliflower, tomatoes, broccoli, lettuce and cabbages are preferable if you want to conceive a boy. They can tilt the PH levels of the cervical fluid and make it less acidic so as to enable the Y chromosome-containing sperm to survive and fuse with the eggs to produce a male fetus.
Cold fruits must not be eaten. They must be consumed at room temperature.
Both parents should increase vegetable intake as vegetables are alkaline foods, and are also high in nutrient content.
Foods rich in nutrients like potassium and vitamins such as B-12, C and D are also needed for conceiving baby boys. In fact the scientific research study found that women who developed male fetuses had 300 mg of extra potassium through food as compared to women who conceived baby girls. Foods rich in potassium include bananas, apples, avocados, strawberries, artichoke, asparagus, almonds, potatoes and steaks.
Salty foods also help conceive baby boys. Foods rich in both potassium and sodium include raisins, nuts, figs and apricots.
It would also be useful to consume foods high in glucose because high glucose consumption has been associated with male fetus development scientifically in the in vitro fertilization (IVF) research.
Foods like cheese, legumes and yogurt will encourage female embryo formation as they increase acidity of the cervical fluid. An increased intake of dairy products that are acidic in nature will not encourage male embryo formation. Meats are generally acidic, but in case you do eat those, red meats are the better choices as they are rich in potassium.
Avoid junk and processed food as they are very acidic and nutrient devoid.
This natural method of diet regulation can be used in conjunction with other methods of encouraging baby boy conception.
While the research seems promising, it's important for parents to realize that the findings aren't a recipe for conceiving a boy and the methods offer no guarantee.
