Next week is In-fertility Week. In-fertility affects 1 out of 8 couples. Proper nutrition can greatly increase your odds of getting pregnant. In fact, poor diet and lack of exercise may be the biggest contributor to in-fertility in the US today.
Poor diet and lack of exercise triggers insulin resistance in all of us and this disrupts ovulation, and negatively affects the quality and health of sperm and eggs.
On today's "Smart Choices," our nutrition contributor Hana Feeney stopped by with some foods you can eat to curtail the risk of in-fertility.
Below are her recommendations:
TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
