How weight affects your fertility

I am lucky to have two beautiful daughters and it's the best thing that happened to me. I know some people that are trying to conceive for years now and still not getting lucky. Usually it's medical reason but possibly just wrong timing. To help other women out there that wanted to conceive, here's a short article  that might help millions.

Did you know that more than one in six couples suffers from some form of fertility issue that makes it difficult for them to get pregnant? According to, one of the biggest factors affecting fertility is something weight and/or diet related. Maintaining a healthy weight can go a long way towards affecting your fertility, and it’s one of the biggest things that a woman can do on her own to affect her fertility. Doctors say that if a woman is overweight, losing as little as ten percent of her body weight can dramatically improve her fertility. Of course, eating right and exercising regularly will benefit the body in all sorts of ways, not just fertility related ones, so it’s a great choice to make. It doesn’t have to be a major thing, if you want to lose weight to boost your fertility. Just incorporate exercise into your daily routine, maybe as an evening walk after dinner, and pay close attention to your food choices. Junk foods, processed foods, and foods like fast foods and sugary snacks are all very bad for fertility and weight gain both. All it takes to improve your fertility is changing the way you think about food, diet and exercise, and taking time to think things through and make better choices when it comes to what you are putting in your body.
