If you're trying to get pregnant, it is critical that you maintain a healthy weight. This shouldn't involve any crash diets - but should mean healthy, regular eating.
Most of the nutrients you need for a healthy child come from healthy eating. This means lots of whole wheat grains, 8-10 glasses of water a day, dark green leafy vegetables, nuts and fish.
Keep track of your Body Mass Index, or BMI. This determines a healthy weight for you given your height. If you don't know your BMI, use this:

In men, being overweight and not exercising regularly have both been linked to low sperm count and low sperm viability.
