The Most Prescribed Baby Girl Diet - Calcium and Magnesium Rich Foods

Updated on November 14, 2017

Women who are planning to get pregnant with a girl should include calcium and magnesium rich foods in their diet. These minerals help build and repair body tissues and regulate insulin levels. Severe calcium and magnesium deficiency can result in birth defects, pregnancy induced high blood pressure, and even infant mortality. But do you know that calcium and magnesium can also increase your chances of getting pregnant with a girl? Calcium and magnesium rich foods are two of the most essential elements of the baby girl diet.

Why Calcium and Magnesium Rich Foods?

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body. Experts recommend a daily intake of 1,000 mg of calcium daily. Meanwhile, magnesium boosts calcium absorption of the body. About 320 mg of magnesium per day is approved by RDA. A recent study on the baby girl diet suggests that eating foods that are high in calcium and magnesium for about two months from your planned pregnancy can help you get pregnant with a girl. That is, assuming that you will make love 3 to 4 days prior to your ovulation. Out of the 32 women who tried the diet, 26 conceived a female baby. Calcium and magnesium rich foods work by changing the mineral content of your uterine environment in a way that makes it favorable for the sperms that produce baby girls. These can also lower pH in your body, allowing the girl sperms to outlive the other sperms. Apart from milk and dairy products, the following foods are also rich in magnesium and calcium:

TIP: Sally Langendoen and William Proctor, authors of the Preconception Gender Diet, suggest reducing intake of sodium and potassium to enable the ovarian egg to draw in the girl sperms better.
