    Great thanks! I think Iíll find that easier than skipping breakfast. Yay that the walking is included, that will help as it can be hard to find the time to exercise with my two boys! Now to persuade hubby to do some cycling nearer the time, I have a year to convince him lol! Obviously itís quite far away, but is there anything else I can do now that would help, other than eat mostly veggie / vegan? Maybe stop snacking so much? Iím bad at grazing and not eating a proper lunch during the day, apart from dinner when I will eat a proper meal...

    I would hold off on making most of the changes for now. Just eat less meat overall. Don't worry about snacks and stuff till 12 weeks ahead.

    Hello again!

    Hi there!

    I’m back with a few more questions about swaying for a girl later on this year, or early next year!

    So last time we spoke my cycle hadn't returned so you advised I eat 65g of fat and protein until it returns. It returned around 5 months ago and I’ve been eating a dairy free and pescatarian diet for a while now (mainly for other reasons rather than swaying).

    I’m getting a bit nearer to when we will try for a third child now and was wondering a few things! Hoping you can help

    1) At the mo I eat fish about once a day, do I need do reduce this even if I am within the LE protein limits? You advised previously to do an alt le diet as I have polycystic ovaries (but not the syndrome).

    2) What limits would you advise now my cycle is back but I’m still breastfeeding around 4 times a day?

    2) I have put my food into fitness pal for a few days to see what my diet is like and I¬ím normally under 50g/60g protein a day but my fat is often higher, like 80 - 90 odd! 😂 I would be interested to know whether you think the protein or fat is more important, or both! Will be reducing the fat down nearer the time but curious to know.

    Although I’m not trying to conceive right now my cycle is back and in the past I’ve got pregnant easily, so I would say there’s a chance I could get pregnant by mistake, as we are not super careful, hence why I’m keen to make a few subtle life style changes now.

    Thanks!
    Helen

    1)you should always limit fish to 2x a week when trying to conceive due to the potential risks of mercury in fish. No one should be eating fish every day when trying to conceive.

    2)I would suggest 1800-2000 cals a day, 50-60 g protein and fat. if you lose weight too quick and your milk supply wanes you can go up to 2000-2200 cals and even up to 65 g pro and fat if you need to.

    Are you counting protein and fat in fruit and veg? If so, stop.

    Protein and fat are both important. I can't pick one vs. the other, they both matter in different ways.

    Thanks for getting back to me!

    Re. Fish, does white fish count too in the 2 per week limit? I know we have to be more careful with oily fish and I definitely need to cut down on that if we try to conceive, but I didn’t realise the same applied for white fish. Maybe I’ll try and cut down on that now anyway!

    With the breastfeeding, my son is 2.5 now so it’s not the end of the world if my supply wanes a bit but plan to continue for now. I also wondered about soya. Me and my hubby both eat a fair bit. Hubby eats quite a lot these days which I’ve heard can be good for a girl away, but should I limit the amount of soya I’m eating?

    Sorry last question, if I need to up my calories but stay within the limits, are carby things ok to eat or will that not work with the alt le diet? I find it hard to think what to eat without going over the protein limit. I will make sure I don’t count carbs in veg though!

    Thanks!

    Yes, it all counts. White fish can have bad stuff in it too. You are NEVER supposed to eat the high-in-mercury fish at all when TTC, and the low-in-mercury should be kept to 2 servings per week.

    Soy is great for your husband and a pink sway, have as much as he wants (though if you guys don't get pregnant, say, in 6 months, he should cut back). For you, I would keep it at 3x a week. Some people believe that soy may sway blue in excess when eaten by women, and it also may reduce your chances of conceiving if you eat too much of it.

    If you're on the alt LE Diet you need to get your carb calories primarily from fruit, higher carb veg, whole grains. You don't need to count carbs, just keep protein and fat to a set limit (not counting fruit and veg) and then cals at a certain level and pick the right carbs, and you will be getting the right amount of carbs.

    k thanks 👍🏻 Iím based in the UK and the rules on white fish are slightly different here, but Iím going to cut down anyway as Iím likely eating too much.

    Re. protein in vegetables, do we count protein in a jacket potato and things like chips (obviously chips arenít a vegetable but as they are made of potato I wasnít sure &#128514.

    Alcohol - I assume we need to stay within the calorie limit even though it doesnít contain nutrients?

    Thanks!

    Potatoes are free for fat and protein. Count only cals in potato.

    Yes, technically you should count alcohol in your cals for the day, but if you NEED the alcohol to keep weight on don't sweat it too much if you find you're going over by the amount of the alcohol
