It will be at least six months before my husband and I start trying to conceive a baby boy but I am curious as to how long before you start trying to conceive a specific gender should you make changes in your diet, physical health, and supplementation?
I am going to start working out with weights right away to try and gain some muscle mass and that can take time. Right now I'm 5 foot 4 inches weighing in at 118 lbs. When it comes to other encouraging factors though, such as vitamins, at what point should you introduce them into your system? Do supplements need to build up in your body for a while before they can make an impact?
You have lots of time! I would start working out now, eat lots of protein and vitamin rich food like the the dark veggies, greek yogurt, nuts, peanut butter, spelt and whole grain breads, raisins, almond butter, fish, meat, chicken, all those yummy healthful foods. Have protein shakes after you lift weights, make shakes with milk, peanut butter, frozen banana, chocolate syrup, protein powder they are yummy and good for building muscle. Add in the vitamins to your regimen, i'm not sure when you do that? Good luck!
I'm doing the opposite right now! I am eating white bread and swedish fish! Also 5'4" and used to work out and eat all those nutritious foods. I am not not working out and down to a flabby 96-98lbs depending on the day! Ugh!
