In a paper just presented at the national meeting of the The American College of OB/GYN in New Orleans May 2013. Women under going IVF had better quality eggs and embryos if their diet consisted of more protein and less carbohydrates.

The study from the Delaware Institute of Reproductive Medicine found that a diet consisting of 25% or more of protein and 40% or less of carbohydrates had times the pregnancy rate than women that ate less than 25% protein and more than 40% carbohydrates whether before or during their in IVF cycle. Embryos of women that ate a diet which consisted of 60% carbohydrates and 10% protein were less healthy than those women who’s diet consisted of 25% or more protein and 40% or less carbohydrate ratio diet.
