For many years, both scientists and parents have been wondering whether it is possible to plan the sex of the unborn child. Over the years, many theories have appeared, one of which is based on the observance of the balance of mineral elements in the mother's body with the help of diets. Often women who want to give birth to a girl are interested in this theory.
Scientists call calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium the most important micronutrients that affect the sex of a child. Women who want to give birth to a girl should exclude foods containing sodium and potassium from their menu, but there should be as much calcium and magnesium in the diet of a woman preparing to become a mother. The list of products not recommended for women wishing to give birth to a girl was headed by table salt. Scientists propose to abandon it altogether. Sausages, various delicacies and fried meat cannot be eaten from meat and meat-containing products. Try to eat either small amounts of cooked meat, or substitute fresh or frozen fish. In the category of baked goods, the ban should be ordinary bread and muffins, as well as cookies and biscuits. But whole grain bread and homemade cakes are perfect for women who dream of a daughter. Potatoes and dishes from it should also be excluded from the diet, but beets, carrots, cucumbers, eggplants and onions will saturate your body with the necessary trace elements. Especially useful for conceiving a girl are yoghurts, whole milk and hard cheeses rich in calcium. Also, a woman should include such greens as spinach, arugula and salads in the diet. It is better to start the day with cereals, oatmeal will be the most useful. It is believed that legumes also have a positive effect on the conception of a girl. The list of permitted foods containing calcium and magnesium includes broccoli and nuts. Fruits should have a special place in a woman's diet. So, for those wishing to give birth to a girl, scientists recommend leaning on oranges, tangerines and other citrus fruits, but bananas should be abandoned during preparation for pregnancy. Among drinks, a special place should be occupied by teas from aromatic herbs, mineral water with calcium, cocoa. Carbonated drinks should be excluded. In addition, when composing a diet, it should be remembered that no theory is valid in all cases, therefore, adherence to a diet cannot be a 100% guarantee of conceiving a girl.
