Foods That Could Hurt A Man’s Fertility

• Your partner should eliminate, or at least cut down, on alcohol, beer and wine while you are trying to get pregnant. Alcohol can lower sperm count, weaken sperm, and impede the secretion of testosterone. Studies have shown that alcohol can decrease sperm count for as much as three months after a big drinking fest.

• Encourage your partner to avoid sugar. Eating lots of sugar often results in hormone imbalances and robs the body of key nutrients.

• Cut down or avoid whenever possible white flour or gluten. If someone is sensitive to gluten, it can cause malabsorption of important nutrients, such as zinc, and increase inflammation throughout the body.

• Reduce or avoid foods with hydrogenated oil as much as possible.

• Reduce or avoid caffeine, which can reduce sperm count and motility. Caffeine is also detrimental to adrenal function, a gland key in productive hormones. The constant stress of caffeine can cause the body to focus on dealing with stress hormones, instead of reproductive hormones.
• Reduce or avoid animal products with a high fat content that contain hormones.

• No fried foods

• No hot sauce

• Avoid fried, charcoal-broiled or barbecued forms of cooking.

• Avoid soy. Soy is high in phyto estrogens, which can upset the hormonal balance in man. The estrogen-like compounds in soy can dramatically lower sperm counts. Texturized soy protein is in many meat substances used in fast food chains, and is also found in cereal, snack crackers and protein shakes.

• Avoid soda

• Stop drinking milk for now, since many dairy cows are fed estrogens to produce more milk. If you must drink milk, try to drink milk that is organic and not from estrogen-fed cows. Dairy that is not organic may contain hormones and antibiotics which can contribute to increased estrogen levels in the body. Keep dairy to a minimum.

• Avoid processed grains, GMO corn and corn products, and corn chips.
