We All Scream For Ice Cream!

Monday I walk away from my desk and when I come back the front page Yahoo article is "8 Natural Ways to Enhance Your Fertility." Hmm...that's interesting so I click on it and read the typical info we all already know, can recite and probably write our own novel about. But then this sparked my interest (from the article):

"Don’t rule out ice cream"

"All you ice cream lovers, take heart: Full-fat dairy foods (like cheese, ice cream and whole milk) may help you get pregnant, a study from the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston finds. A fat-soluble compound in dairy may up your odds of conceiving. Pass the spoon!"

HELLO!?! For those of you that don't know me, I totally big puffy heart ice cream!!! It's the ABSOLUTE BEST!!! So I can either take this article one of two ways:

1. Show DH this "official" article and say, "See! It's a fact, I need as much ice cream as possible!"


2. Totally call BS on this article because I eat A LOT of ice cream and there ain't no bun in the oven yet!

Hmmm...guess I'll go eat some ice cream while I think this one over...

I haven't heard this specifically about ice cream but about milk. Supposedly, we as a female society drink too much skim milk and low fat ice cream. Your body needs a certain amount of full fat milk or ice cream which is really suppose to help your fertility.
I doubted the source the first time but then found it from two reputable sources. So just make sure to buy the REAL full fat ice cream. (I prefer the full fat chocolate milk)

I read this somewhere, too. Enjoy your ice cream! :-)

Lol, I read the same thing and switched to full fat milk and ice cream several months ago...but it backfired on me. B/c of my high estrogen I think that made it even worse! Now I can't have any dairy but that's just b/c of my problems. I think for other people it's good.
