weight & fertility article

(I can't remember where I clipped this article from but the info is interesting.) Weight loss can help fertility. Obesity encourages insulin resistance and ploycystic ovarian syndrome -- conditions that can lead to infertility. "Higher insulin levels lead to more fat storage and disrupt proper ovarian hormone production," says reproductive endocrinologist Laurence Jacobs, M.D. His program, x2 Fit and Fertile (x2fitandfertile.com), helps women correct insulin resistance with weight loss. Through use of a weighted vest, a low-carb diet and, in some cases, medication, the program has had a 50% success rate.

JOKE: Who was the heaviest of King Arthur's knights? Sir Lunch-alot.
