According to the British newspaper “Daily Mail”, nutrition expert Roe Huntress shared the foods that should be avoided in this context.
You should limit your caffeine intake when trying to get pregnant, because drinking too much of it is associated with an increased chance of miscarriage. It is suggested that women should not take more than 200 mg, which is approximately equivalent to two cups of instant coffee.
Some types of fish
Oily fish such as salmon, mackerel and sardines are rich sources of nutrients, so it may seem surprising that nutritionists recommend not overeating them while trying to conceive. You should limit yourself to two servings per week due to the contaminants it contains, which can accumulate in the body and harm the fetus. Pregnant women should also avoid smoked or processed fish because they may be contaminated with Listeria bacteria. This can cause an infection called listeriosis, which can lead to miscarriage or stillbirth, or make the newborn seriously ill.
Foods containing a high percentage of vitamin A
Eggs, beef liver, and fish oil should be avoided, because they contain a high percentage of vitamin A. Excess vitamin A can cause fetal deformities including small or absent eyes, cleft lip, and deformities of the limbs, kidneys, reproductive organs, heart, thyroid, and skeletal system.
Trans fats found in ghee, cakes, biscuits and fast food should be avoided. Eating trans fats is associated with increased rates of infertility and can affect the length of pregnancy, which may lead to developmental defects and miscarriage. Manufacturers have dramatically reduced the levels of trans fats in foods in recent years due to their known ill effects on health, such as increased risk of heart disease and blood clots.
