Want To Have A Baby Girl? Eat A Lot Of Yogurt And Stop Eating Bacon
We're always a little skeptical about different tricks you can use to pick your baby's gender . . . if there was really a technique that worked, I feel like we'd all know it by now. But this one has a little science behind it, so we're gonna pass it along.
--A team of scientists at Maastricht University in the Netherlands say they've figured out a two-step process to help you influence your future baby's gender. Those steps are:
#1.) If you want a girl, try to conceive anytime except on the days right before or after the woman's ovulation. If you want a boy, try to conceive during those pre- and post-ovulation days.
#2.) If you want a girl, eat foods that are high in calcium and magnesium, like yogurt, cheese, spinach, tofu, almonds, oatmeal, broccoli, oranges, cashews and whole wheat cereals. And cut out foods that are high in sodium or potassium.
--If you want a boy, eat foods that are high in sodium and potassium like olives, bacon, salami, smoked salmon, potatoes and meat. And cut out foods that are high in calcium and magnesium.
--In the study, 172 women stuck as closely as possible to the steps for conceiving a girl. And 80% of them, or four out of five, actually did conceive a girl.
