If you are having fried foods, junk foods such as burgers, dosa, pizza or you are someone who has to frequently eat outside food. Then you need to find a way to cut down on the same. The reason being the trans fat on these foods that cause inflammation and insulin resistance in the body. This leads to a reduction in sperm count.
So opt for food from home as well as healthy food that is not deep fried. Basically, we are trying to reduce trans fat intake. So instead of snacking on a masala dosa, try to have Rava idli or plain idle without the vada. Instead of a burger from McD or KFC, try to get the patty made at home via baking and make the burger. All this is not required but if you want to reproduce then the choice is yours.
