Today, there are several fertility diet books available on the market.  Do you recommend animal protein or minimal animal protein?  No carbs or only complex carbs?  What about fats?  No transfats, but what about saturated fats, like butter?  

This panel will look at several diets (Mediterranean, Paleo, Weston Price) and the latest research on how diet impacts fertility (egg and sperm quality, metabolic disorders like PCOS, and inflammatory conditions like endometriosis) from ovulation, embryo quality to uterine receptivity.  At the end of the discussion we will hopefully have a evidence-based diet approach to optimize fertility.
