Weight Loss Improves Fertility
A study at the 19th European Congress on Obesity in Lyon, France implies that weight loss improves chances of getting pregnant. The research was presented by Kyra Sim from the University of Sydney's Boden Institute of Obesity, Nutrition, Exercise and Eating Disorders. The study involved 49 overweight women who were undergoing fertility treatments. One group women followed a 12-week low calorie diet program while the other group acted as a control. The former group which lost a mean of 6.6 kg registered 48% rate of pregnancy while 14% was reported in the latter group.
