Hi there,

I have just purchased the app. I am trying to get pregnant and as I have been trying for over s year and have PCOS I though the glow guide would be a good way to get my body ready.

I have just read in the FAQs that it is not recommended to do when pregnant.

Do you think this apples for me now trying to conceive? Looking at the meal plans it doesn't look massively different from how I try to eat at the moment. Perhaps just less meat.

I hope that I haven't just wasted £50?

I look forward to your thoughts.

I'm in the same boat too. We have had recurrent miscarriages and now can't get pregnancy at all so going for clean eating, meditation and acupuncture as a couple. Let me know how you get on ladies. It will be great to see how we get on! Xx

Tumeric is great for reproductive health overall but it may not help conception itself.

I'm in the same boat. I have been trying for a while and thought that the Glow Guide would be a great way to get my body super fit and ready! Maybe just pass on the milk? Although, I've just read an article about the health benefits of turmeric for fertility! I'm confused?!

Just googled turmeric and ttc and it seems to be full of reproductive benefits😀

Thank you ladies. Your advice has been really helpful.
I'm pleased to hear that not alone with PCOS.

I would check out the herbs you use. For example I am not sure that turmeric is great for trying to conceive. (Google on the Internet for explanations.). Am sure the food is probably great for nutrition to conceive though- but I would check herbs.

Hi Kerry, I am in the same situation. We have been trying for a year (had a miscarriage in February last year). The meal plan I believe is fantastic to prepare your body. Exactly what it needs. It is lots of healthy foods with low GI index, it has protein with every meal, has more alkaline foods than acidic, all things important.

I would just pay attention to two things to enhance fertility and perhaps adapt here and there in the meal plan accordingly:
- eat as many warm meals / warm cooked foods as possible as it reinforces your fertility, your body needs that, it has to do with your yin. It includes breakfast (E.g. I cook the porridge in the morning instead of soaking it in the fridge overnight)
- eat additional fruits as they will give you important nutrients. There are not many in the glow plan but they are very important as fertility depends specifically on the fructose and glucose that occur naturally in fruit, as well as the phytochemicals bonded to those sugars.
A woman's reproductive system also relies on the dozens of antitumor, anticancer antioxidants available only in fruit, as well as fruit's essential polyphenols, bioflavonoids, disease stopping pectins, vitamins and minerals. These elements help to stop PCOS, PID, and an overextended reproductive system - examples of conditions that cause mysterious infertility.
The only fruit that is recommended not to eat is orange / orange juice.

I can send you more info on food and supplement recommendations if you want, I have a list that details everything - just send me a private message.

I have started to do changes in my diet since December and I really think it will make a big difference.

I'm in exactly the same boat so would love to read people's advice on this.
To be honest I don't think it's a waste of money. You can always up your calorie intake if you need by having additional snacks :)
Just don't put any more pressure on yourself. It's tough enough as it is. Relax and enjoy the guide but tailor it to suit your needs X
