Do Nutrition and Weight Loss Play a Role in Fertility?

Excess body weight can hinder your ability to conceive by altering the reproductive hormones in your body.  Women who carry excess body weight may also have problems ovulating and experience more inflammation in their bodies.

How can Food for Fertility Help?

Judy Simon, MS, RDN and Angela Thyer, MD have helped many women to achieve a healthy pregnancy through the highly successful Food for Fertility Program.  This group program serves to meet the needs of women to cook at home using nourishing, fertility friendly foods in a fun, supportive atmosphere.

The Food for Fertility program is comprised of six weekly 75-90 minute sessions. Each session is highly interactive and designed to provide you with lifestyle information and skill building to promote optimal nutrition, movement, stress reduction, and fertility.  Sessions involves goal setting, cooking a “food of the week” at your home virtually side by side with Judy and Dr. Angela, and sharing your experiences with other participants. Many of our patients have found that the most valuable aspect of the class is the sense of support you get from your peers.

The first step is a one hour meeting with registered dietitian, Judy Simon, a registered dietitian whose expertise is in reproductive nutrition.  Judy works one on one with you to develop an individually designed program to work on your health goals.

If you are motivated to join this program, get in touch with Judy soon.  Due to the interactive nature of this program, class size is limited to six.
