Girl Diet Contradictions?

So I've just started the girl diet and I'm confused with all of the information out there. I am trying to get as many calcium sources as possible, and I've heard that citrus fruits help with acidity for girl TTCing? So I'm having orange juice every day, but I notice that it has a fair amount of potassium. Argh! So I compared the lists of potassium rich foods vs calcium rich foods and there is a fair amount of overlap, such as with raisins, orange juice and carrots--sooooo frustrating. Even my pre-natal vitamins have both sets of nutrients/minerals! I just don't know what is safe to eat and what is not these days. Confused Huh?

I don't think orange juice is part of the girl sway.... I am not sure how it all works but when acidic foods are consumed they turn alkaline in the body, I think oranges are actually on the TTC a boy diet.... The girl diet basically consists of milk, greek yogurt, chicken, green beans, cucumber, strawberries, raspberries, crystal light/equal, white rice and plain pasta and a little parmesean and that is about it... If you go in the TTC ebooks they have the diets all lined out for you.

Thanks much, mrs.dilettante! That is very helpful--no more orange juice for me, even if it is enriched with calcium! Happy Giggle

I hate all the contradictions. I was in your boat to, and then i studied the goods of foods, and omg it frustrated me. We basically have to starve LOL kidding. no no, there is some good in the foods we allowed, but as soon as we get our bfp we can go back to eating normal.

You shouldnt take prenatal vitamines ttcing PINK, just folic acid. In my opinion prenatal vitamines are just money making, if you eat healthily once you get your BFP all you need is folic acid and maybe DHA after week 12).

Thanks for the advice, ladies! It is invaluable. The other contradiction I seem to find is in white rice. It's part of the girl diet, but from what I know about nutrition, white rice converts into sugar, which is a no-no on the girl diet. I feel like I'm shooting myself in the foot when I eat some of the foods that are on the girl diet. Soooooooo annoying! Hmm
