Is Your Sweet Tooth Reducing Chances of Conception?

Is Your Sweet Tooth Sabotaging Your Fertility?

sweet tooth sabotaging fertility

Even if you don’t think you have a sweet tooth because you turn down desserts, chocolate brownies and sugar in your tea, you are still hard wired to like sugar nonetheless.

Why You’re Hard Wired To Like Sugar

Sugar gives a rush of energy and pleasure to the brain, making things feel momentarily that ‘everything is okay’ – even when it isn’t. That is why it is termed a ‘pick me up.’

However too much consumption of sugary snacks has been linked to the over production of adrenaline.


Adrenaline is part of your body’s defence mechanisms which kills off the female reproductive hormone progesterone and as a result, reduces chances of conception.

How To Detoxify From The Effects of Sugar

Step 1 – Take the mineral chromium after meals to curb sugar cravings

Step 2 – Revitalise the liver because sugar negatively impacts our largest detoxifying organ

How To Keep Adrenaline at Bay

You can control the adrenaline by controlling your body’s fight and flight response, or better known as “your stress response.”

Ensure you know how to manage your stress in ways that work for you. This does not mean reading a book or watching TV. Managing stress means exercising, meditating or practising mindfulness.

    I have a sweet tooth and never thought about how it can actually impact my fertility – good to know!
    Thanks again!

    I am really healthy across all aspects of my life – and as balanced as I can be… But reading this I realise I need to address my sugar cravings.

    Will get onto having some chromium ASAP!

    I never considered myself as having a sweet tooth, but this article makes me think twice now about the odd dessert now and then.
    Admittedly I would eat dessert 3 times a week or so, but think I will opt for high-fat-low-carb style instead.

    On behalf of myself and my wife – thank you so much for this – it is short and sweet, excuse the pun, but really hit home for us 🙂

    You have inspired me to take a closer look at my intake of food and yes, like the others say… I feel it is time for me to do a liver cleanse too. If I have any questions along the way I will be in touch

      Hi Franca
      Renee is great isn’t she. Her lifestyle tips help to enhance fertility and I can not recommend her work enough. She really walks her talk – look at how radiant she is despite her high pressured life as a lawyer, lifestyle coach, blogger, public speaker and author. Have you looked into her “Women’s Group”? It is called INSPIRED WOMEN OF PERTH

    Brilliant! I definitely am going to reduce my sugar intake… I have an extremely sweet tooth and have in the past given chromium a try, but not for fertility. Thank you Fiona.

    Are there any brands of chromium you would recommend taking?

      Hi Sarah-Jane

      Chromium is an essential trace mineral that plays an important role in helping insulin regulate blood glucose. Along with a nutritious diet, chromium may help maintain healthy blood sugar levels already within a normal range. In addition, chromium is a component of a number of enzymes that release energy from cells and is required for proper receptor functioning necessary for nutrient metabolism.

      I think Solgar and Viridian are good brands however when it comes to chromium, it seems Viridian does not have straight chromium, instead they have a blend with spirulina and zinc. Solgar has straight chromium but remember to:
      1 – Check there is no soy, maize, corn, yeast and especially magnesium stearate
      2 – Body test it before you buy it
