Fertility and The 1:1 Diet

It is already established in the scientific literature that losing weight is one treatment that improves fertility and we’ve had numerous stories of women who were trying to get pregnant and finally did so after being on our diet. Also, it has been known for decades that certain nutrients like, particularly, zinc but also magnesium, selenium, copper, and calcium deficiency are associated with complications of pregnancy, childbirth or foetal development. Our products are specifically designed to meet the daily requirement for these nutrients and others, thus providing both the needed nutrition and the needed weight loss1. Also, we’ve just had a study published on our diet showing improved fertility in men2.

Given the relationship between weight loss, the provision of adequate essential nutrients and fertility, The 1:1 Diet should be seen as an attractive option for those who are overweight and wishing to conceive.
