    Hi All,
    So I was wondering what everyone's thoughts are on not eating refined sugar, white flour, ect or drinking caffeine when trying to get preg... Every now and then I read that someone is giving up sugar and caffeine... I am not super overweight I'm 5'5 145 so i have some extra "warmth" and do not eat terribly unhealthy and coffee makes me really jittery so I only drink when I want to clean the house:haha:, but as I'm sure as you all know the feeling I start obsessing about everything I can... So this clomid cycle I'm considering not eating refined sugars/white flour/coffee at all to increase any chance, or if people are doing this for some other reason. Help please :flower:

    So far I'm having great results from cutting all of that out (well I haven't ever been a coffee drinker so that was a non issue). I have PCOS and I'm finding that my change of diet/life style has started to bring back my normal cycles! I've also read quite a bit of information that says those things can directly affect fertility. I found that it wasn't that hard to change my diet and still find stuff that I really enjoy eating! :)

    Haha That's true, but I do still allow myself to enjoy my favorites, but I keep it to a very small portion and not very often. Last night I had pizza. :blush:
