An email from someone raised a question: "so my understanding is that in order to get a boy baby, I should eat high acid foods, but what types of foods are in this category?" Before I started listing foods, I had to tell her that she was mostly wrong because what she needs is not acidic foods. Below are the reasons for my ideas.
Why You Really Want To Eat Alkaline Foods if you are trying To Have a Boy Baby: Here is why you do not want to eat acidic foods. An acidic environment if very rough and sometimes deadly for boy sperm. I am specifically talking about the Y-chromosomes which, when pared with your egg, will produce a boy. One of the ways that people who are trying for girl babies accomplish this is to make their PH very high. This is not what you are going for. You want an alkaline environment, which means making good use of either alkaline foods or alkaline douches or both.
So What Types Of Foods Should You Be Eating If You Want A Son, Then? I often tell people that the boy diet is a much healthier one than the girl diet. That is because many fruits and vegetables have a low pH, while meats, dairy, processed foods, and sweets tend to have a higher pH. Some fruits and vegetables are lower in pH than others are though. Examples of good ones are green beans, carrots, spinach, celery, lettuce, asparagus, tomato, lemon, lime, and watermelon.
However, if you really want to get specific about this, some foods are alkaline when you consume them but they then become acidic when your body goes to digest them. This process is quite individual for most people. I recommend getting PH testing strips, consuming the foods that generally have a low PH and then testing you after this to make sure that they are reacting the way that they are supposed to.
If all of this food business seems too complicated and frustrating, (it is not very bad) then you can try douching with different ingredients and testing in the same, way to see what works best for you. However, know that once you test your reaction to a food, you do not have to repeat it; you only need to make a note of it.
Timing vs. PH: (Or Combining Both :) Sometimes, people ask me if they can abandon the whole PH thing and concentrate instead on just trying to conceive on the day of ovulation, as this is also favorable to getting a son. I absolutely advocate getting your timing down (and using a good ovulation predictor), but I do not think that one or the other of these things absolutely works all alone. Sure, you will up your odds but doesn't it make sense to do all you can? It is not that much more trouble to do both of these at once.
In addition, if you can add in one more tasks, you can try to use deep penetration when you have sex or intercourse. This is said to give the Y sperm a slight advantage and of course, every little bit helps.
