Big breakfast increases fertility

Big breakfast increases fertility

Eating a good breakfast can help infertility problems.

A big breakfast has been found to increase fertility among women suffering from menstrual irregularities.A study looked at whether the timing of meals had an impact on women with irregularities caused by Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) which affects up to 10pc of women of reproductive age.

They looked at 60 women over a 12 week period in the 25-39 age group

The women were divided into two groups and were allowed to consume about 1,800 calories a day. The difference between the groups was the timing of their largest meal.

 One group consumed their largest meal, of about 980 calories, at breakfast, while the others eat the largest meal in the evening.

The group that ate most at breakfast showed an increase in fertility levels compared to the other group.

“The research clearly demonstrates that indeed the amount of calories we consume daily is very important, but the timing as to when we consume them is even more important,” concluded the team

The study was carried out at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv University and the findings published in the journal “Clinical Science”.
