 Big Breakfast can Help Women Struggling With Fertility Issues

A joint study carried out by researchers at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv University and Wolfson Medical Center have found that eating a healthy breakfast with high amount of calories can provide a boost to women who are having problems with their fertility.

The researchers recruited around 60 women who had been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). They divided the women into two groups and while both the groups consumed around 1,800 calories in a day, the main difference was the timing of their largest meal with the first group consuming their largest meal, involving over 980 calories, at breakfast while the second group ate their largest meal at dinner.


The researchers found that women from the group that had eaten their largest meal at breakfast displayed improved results with glucose levels and insulin resistance decreased by 8 percent, testosterone levels decreased by as much as 50 percent while the women also displayed a much higher rate of ovulating. The study has been published in journal Clinical Science.

"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", lead researcher Professor Oren Froy said.
