The concept behind the girl diet.

The concept is simple. You certainly cannot guarantee a certain gender of your child (at least not naturally), however, through your diet, you can increase the probability of the gender outcome.

This is called gender-swaying. 


By changing the intake of key minerals through the pre-conceptional diet, the concentration of these minerals in the blood changes, which then increases the odds for conceiving a specific gender. 

Specifically, the pre-conceptional diet of the mother to sway for a girl should be 





It is less about the quantities of these minerals, but rather the relationship between them that counts. This should commence at least six weeks, better a couple of months, before trying to conceive. 

There is no evidence that suggests that the father needs to change his diet too. 

While there is some understanding of this phenomenon with animals, the mechanisms by which diet influences sex selection in humans remains unclear. We know that changes in the diet changes the concentration of these minerals in the blood. It is assumed that this induces ionic and/or hormonal changes that influence the cervical mucus or the oocyte, which then influences which sperm can fertilise the egg. 

"The balance between sodium and potassium versus calcium and magnesium could change the receptors of the oocyte wall to favor the attraction of either a male or female sperm.

When there is a high sodium and potassium intake, and a low calcium and magnesium in the female’s diet, the oocyte wall will change to attract the (y-sperm). While, more calcium and magnesium in the blood and a low sodium and potassium will attract the (x-sperm)."

No matter how exactly the mechanism works, science leaves no doubt that diet may influence gender. So if you dream of pink and know by following this diet you can increase the probability of conceiving a girl, why wouldn't you? Simply follow the food guide as part of a balanced, nutrious diet and, with discipline, you too may be able to sway pink.
