If I Am On A High Protein Diet Like Atkins Or South Beach, Am I More Likely To Have A Boy Or Girl Baby?

By: Sandy Dean:  Some people are on a special or restrictive diet right before they attempt to conceive a baby and they wonder what this diet might mean in terms of baby gender.  One example is being on a high protein diet like Atkins or South Beach.

Someone might ask something like this: “for the last three months, I have been on the Atkins diet.  I have been trying to get at an ideal weight before I have children.  I’m about twenty five pounds overweight and am trying to remedy this.  I’ve read that a high protein diet favors a boy baby.  Is this true? I’m actually not sure which gender that I want yet, but I’m just trying to determine which gender I’m more likely to get eating all of this protein and taking in less calories.”

Conflicting Information On Confusing Data: The data on this is a bit conflicting.  Here is what I mean. Technically, most meats and proteins are acidifying, which actually lends itself more to a girl baby conception.  (There reason is that an acidic PH is hostile to Y or boy producing sperm.) Having your body be acidic is ONE thing  (but not all) that discourages boy sperm.  So, on its face, it would appear that a high protein diet would favor a girl baby.  And, adding to this, studies have shown that women who take in more calories are more likely to have boys.  But before you start buying blue clothing, here is a contrasting statistic: women who eat breakfast cereal (which typically would not be found a high protein diet) are more likely to have girls.  You see, there seems to be an exception to every rule.  So you can see how these facts sort of conflict and make this whole thing confusing.

Technically, someone eating a good amount of meat protein and restricting their diet would, at least on the face of it, be more likely to have a girl.  But then you have the breakfast cereal statistic, which seems to contrast  all of this.

The Best Way To Cut Through The Confusion: Test Yourself: I know that it’s frustrating that this information seems to be a bit conflicting.  But truly, it doesn’t have to be.  And do you know why?  Because you can very easily test your PH and determine how it is affected by the foods you eat.  BEFORE you try to become pregnant, you could test regularly in order to see what the high amount of protein is doing to your PH.  If it not where you want it based on the gender that you want, then you can make adjustments and continue to test.

Everyone’s Body Is Different: I know that it would be nice if you could be told EXACTLY what to eat to get your desired gender.  But the truth is, this is tricky.  Why? Because everyone’s body is different.  Every one reacts to different foods differently.  And although some foods may technically be acidic or alkaline, they sometimes are metabolized differently in your body.  That is why it is so important to test and not to just guess.  All of us are unique and are going to react to different foods differently.

You might find that those high protein foods are not making you as acidic as you might think.  Or you may find that they are.  But you won’t know until you test.  And PH is not the only important consideration in baby gender.  There are two other variables that you need to juggle at the same time. If you’d like to read about all of the variables that are important, I’ve put together a couple of free websites to help.
