How Obesity Affects Fertility!

P2-Temple-Fertility-adMany married couples today are having a hard time conceiving their first child.

If the woman is overweight or obese in anyway it could be one reason why conception has not taken place.

The reason is…

Obesity can affect fertility by causing hormonal imbalances and problems with ovulation, particularly for obese women who are yet to have their first baby.

Obesity is associated with a syndrome called Poly-Cystic Ovary syndrome, this disease is a common cause of infertility.

So what we are saying in summary is that being overweight significantly affects a woman’s chances of conception and having a healthy baby.

And if an obese woman eventually conceives, below are some of the health risks to both mother and child.

  • Increased chance of miscarriage
  • Development of High Blood pressure
  • Infection
  • Blood clotting
  • High chances of Caesarean birth or worse yet, stillbirth

More Facts About the Effects of Obesity on Fertility

  • Overweight or obese women have less chance of getting pregnant
  • Overweight women have twice the risk of developing gestational diabetes, and obese women, eight times the risk compared to women of healthy weight.
  • A woman who is obese is more than twice as likely to have a miscarriage as a woman of healthy weight. There is twice the risk that her baby will not survive.
  • Pre-Eclampsia [A serious pregnancy illness characterized by High blood pressure, and protein in the urine] doubles in overweight women, and triples in obese women

How To Know If You’re Overweight or Obese

If you’re trying to conceive, the first thing you need to know is whether you’re obese or overweight. One common measure of “overweight” or “obesity” is to use the BMI [Body Mass Index] calculation.

To calculate your BMI, simply divide your weight in Kilograms by the square of your height in metres.

Here’s the formula BMI = Weight [in kg]/height [in m2]

You can even use the BMI Calculator online to do it. To calculate your BMI, simply Click Here To Use The Online BMI Calculator

Here Are the Respective Measurements for BMI

  1. Healthy = 18.5 to 24.9
  2. Overweight = 25 to 29.9
  3. Obese = 30 and above

If your BMI is over 30, that means you’re Obese, and there is a chance that you might have problem with conception and all the risk associated with obesity may as well apply to you, unless you do something about it.

On the other hand being underweight can also affect a woman’s ability to conceive a child. In most cases however, there are more overweight women than there are of underweight women.

How Deadly Is Sugar?

Death by sugar may not be an overstatement, strong evidence is mounting that sugar is THE MAJOR FACTOR causing obesity and chronic diseases. sugar_skull_18

Lots of scientific research has confirmed that sugar in your food in all its myriads of forms is taking a devastating toll on your health.

Just visit any supermarket and take a look at the range of processed foods on display. Sugar is loaded in soft drinks, sports drink, fruit juices, snacks, biscuits, cakes, chocolates, popcorn etc.

Even infant formulas, some have an equivalent amount of sugar found in a bottle of Coca Cola, that means even babies are being poisoned from day one of taking baby foods.

The resultant effect of sugar is an obese or overweight person.

Carrying excess weight increases your risks of deadly conditions like heart diseases, kidney disease, diabetes, and cancer.

Now let’s look at 5 reasons why sugar is bad for you.

1. Added Sugar Overloads Your Liver

For us to understand why sugar is bad, we need to understand its components first.

When you eat sugar, before it enters the bloodstream, it is broken down into two simple sugars…

  • Glucose which is found in every living cell. If we don’t get it from foods, our bodies produce it
  • Fructose is not produced by the body because there is no need for it, so it is a different form of simple sugar.

The problem with fructose is that it can be metabolized by the liver in significant amount.

If we eat little sugar [like the one we get from fruits], fructose is turned into Glycogen which is stored in the liver till the body needs it.

However, when we eat large amounts of sugar especially from most processed foods, what happens is that the liver will produce the required amount of Glycogen for the body till it’s full, once that happens, the excess sugar[fructose] is converted into fat.

Overtime, it can lead to fatty liver disease, and other associated serious health problems.

2. Sugar Causes Insulin Resistance

Insulin-ResistanceThe work of Insulin in the body is to transport blood sugar [glucose] through the cells of the body so that it can be burnt and converted into energy.

However, when there is an excess glucose, due to consumption of too many sugar related foods, the blood sugar is elevated into abnormal levels. The blood stream becomes highly toxic and acidic because of too much sugar.

This effect causes the cells of the body to become “resistant” to the presence of sugar, and at this point, insulin stops working.

This condition leads to early development of Type 2 Diabetes [pre-diabetes], and is believed to be the early drivers of such diseases like cardiovascular diseases and obesity.

3. Insulin Resistance Can Progress to Type 2 Diabetes

When our cells becomes resistant to the presence off insulin, the pancreas tries to compensate for it and work to level out blood sugar.

This is important because highly elevated blood sugar can cause severe harm to the body.

However, as insulin resistance becomes increasingly worse, and the pancreas can’t keep up in maintaining the normal blood sugar level in the body, the blood sugar becomes abnormally high, at this point a diagnosis is made of “Type 2 Diabetes”

Scientific studies have shown that people who drink sugar sweetened beverages have up to 83% higher risk of Type 2 Diabetes.

4. Excess Sugar Consumption Can Lead To Cancer

We may not consume added sugar directly, but how many processed foods do we eat on a daily basis?

How many soft drinks?
How many biscuits?
How many flour products?
How many chewing gums or sweets?
How many cups of chocolate beverages [teas]? Muffin

Each of these foods contains high amounts of sugar, and they all add up on a daily basis to increase the amount of sugar our liver is handling on a daily basis.

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the world today and it is characterized by uncontrolled growth and multiplication of cells.

Insulin is one key hormone which regulates blood sugar level, and control this sort of cell multiplication.

Scientists believe that having constantly elevated insulin levels caused by eating so many sugar filled foods, can contribute to cancer.

Additionally, eating too many sugar foods makes the blood stream more toxic and a healthy environment for cancer growth to begin.

Many studies have confirmed that people who eat lots of sugar are at a higher risk of getting the cancer disease.

5. Sugar Causes Obesity In Adults and Children

When you consume sugar, it affects your brain hormone which gives you a feeling of always wanting to take more of it. This feeling causes you to overeat on “sweet” foods which leads to weight gain.

It’s not surprising to know that people who consume the most sugar foods are more likely to become overweight or obese.

Unfortunately, this applies to all age groups, both children and adults.

The addiction for sugar foods is more common in children, who have an insatiable taste for sugar “sweet” foods which comes in form of chocolate beverages, ice-creams, etc.

Studies have shown that this has been associated with a 60% increased risk of obesity.

If you want to lose weight, one of the most important things you can do is to significantly cut back or eliminate the consumption of sugar.

The bottom line is…

That is 7 days of change that will eventually become a habit to you.

Sunday – Day 1:

Set your goals. For example you can write a goal like: “By March 2016, I have Lost 15kg”.

Did you notice that I did not say: “I will lose 15kg by March 2016”. Even though the later statement is a strong goal, the former is stronger because you’ve already positioned yourself as having achieved that result by the said date. Stating it this way will “force” you to work to make the goal a reality by that date.

Post this goal in the visible areas of your house, such as in front of your mirror, Fridge, bedroom, and anywhere you can see it always.

Next, use one of my workout videos, and commit to do it everyday for 20 – 30 minutes for the next 21 days. It is said that habits are formed if you do something regularly for 21 days.

Monday – Day 2:

Eliminate all liquid calories, and replace them with water and Green tea. Liquid calories like all type of bottled drinks, alcohol, fruit drinks, diet cokes etc.

Tuesday – Day 3

Prepare a shopping list and go food shopping, and get foods like Nuts, Fiber, Vegetables, Fruits, Protein.

Replace these with the healthy foods you bought the previous day.

Thursday – Day 5
Get an accountability partner, and let him know exactly what you plan to do. This will help you to stay motivated, encouraged, and you will be able to stick with your weight loss plan till you see results.

Friday – Day 6

Saturday – Day 7
Get a weight loss meal plan, and effective workout program. Jump start your weight loss program by eating nutritious meals while exercising for 20 – 30 minutes 4 – 5 times per week.

Shocking Results… [Video Inside]

In this newsletter, I’m going to discuss about two things.

Number one, the shocking results of the last survey I did.

Number two, what you must start doing to burn off excess fat in your system, starting from today.

Now let’s get started.

#1. Survey results…

I sent out a survey on Tuesday morning to help me improve the quality of my blog posts, and products and to also have an idea of the problems my readers on healthy living are currently facing.

And the reality is, I was shocked with the results I got.

Here’s the statistics of that survey as we speak.

  1. 85% of the people who took the survey weigh from 80kg – 165kg
  2. 97% of the people want to burn from 5 – 65kg
  3. 85% is mostly tummy fat
  4. Many people eat lots of carbohydrates foods and sits for a long time
  5. 64.48% have NEVER used a weight loss product that I offer
  6. 54.12% do not currently have any plan to lose weight
  7. 22% of the people believe that Exercising alone is enough
  8. 90.51% are ready to use a weight loss product to help them lose weight, starting immediately

After going through the results, I was surprised that in spite of these results, few people are actually making efforts to lose weight.

Why is that?

You see, over 90% of the respondents WANT to lose the excess fat, but very few among them are making the needed effort to lose that weight.

Because from the statistics, almost 65% of the respondents have not even tried any of the advanced weight management products I offer.

Another area I’m surprised about is the fact that many people believe that exercising alone is enough to lose weight.

This is completely wrong…

There is something more responsible for weight loss than exercise. However, exercise is a MUST for a lot of reasons which you will find out later.

For those who participated in the survey, I gave them something special. If you were one of them, I want to use this medium to thank you as well

In case you did not participate in that survey, and you’re interested, you can still do so from the link below.

#2. What To Do To Burn Fat Starting Today

If you want to start making serious efforts to lose weight, you need more than exercise to achieve this.

You need to pay particular attention to your eating habits, and the type of foods you eat. I’m not saying you must starve yourself, or eat one or two meals per day. In fact you actually need to eat up to 4 – 5 special meals everyday to effectively lose weight.

In fact, I have a video I want you to watch. It’s about 6 minutes in length. But watching it will surely change your life, and also give you a solid transformation starting from today.

Watch This Video NOW!

In the survey, majority of the respondents want to start on a weight loss journey immediately, while a few others want to start after Christmas or new year.

Whatever your decision is, I have prepared a special package for you which I will reveal to you this Friday 18th December 2015.

It’s an offer which is going to contain a huge discounts on many of the weight loss products I have on my blog. It’s going to include heavy discounts on supplements, and information products on weight loss.

I will be using it to end the year and encourage you to start your journey to weight loss, if you have not started already.

It will be available for 5 working days, starting from this week Friday to next week Thursday as next week Friday is Xmas.

So be ready for it and prepared come Friday 18th December, 2015.

How To Prepare Coconut Oil From Home!

Last week, I wrote an article on the health benefits of Coconut Oil and I was bombarded with lots of requests.

Here are some of the requests I got…

  • Where can I get Coconut oil in Nigeria?
  • How can I prepare Coconut oil
  • Coconut oil is quite expensive, how can I prepare it?
  • I use Coconut oil for my skin and hair alone, can it be eaten as well?
  • How can I prepare Coconut oil from home?

If you notice from the trend of requests above, there are lots of email requests on how to prepare Coconut oil.

So I decided to write and give you my loyal newsletter reader, a step by step guide on how you can prepare Coconut oil from home.

More especially as people pay a hefty price to acquire Coconut oil for cooking. If you can prepare it yourself, you will be able to cut down on the profit margins that people who sell it for exorbitant prices make from you.

Here we go…

Step #1 – Collect the Coconuts needed for this
If you need like 2 -3 bottles of Coconut oil, get around 10 – 15 Coconuts.

Step #2 – Crack open the Coconut and drain out water
Use a hammer to crack open the Coconut, then drain the water into a container.

coconuts2Step #3 – Scrap out Coconut flesh from the shell.
Get a knife, and use it to scrap out the Coconut flesh from the shell. Just insert the knife into one of the broken edges, twist and take out the Coconut flesh chunk by chunk.

Step #4 – Grate the Coconut flesh into shreds
You can get a local metal grater for this purpose, and grate the whole flesh into smaller shreds or if you have a blender, you can blend the Coconut flesh into a paste.

Step #5 – Add some water to the grated Coconut flesh
Add some water to the crushed or blended Coconut milk, and mix very well.


Step #6 – Extract Coconut Milk

To extract the Coconut milk, you can either use your hands to do it or get a piece of white clean cloth to filter out the Coconut milk from the mix.

Do it twice to extract more milk from the leftover, but don’t over do it so you don’t end up with more water in the extracted milk.

coconuts6coconuts6iStep #7 – Leave Coconut milk over night.

Leave the extracted Coconut milk overnight. The next day, you will discover that the milk has separated from the water of the previous day. The Coconut milk is now a cream on top of the mix while the water is underneath.

Just scoop out the Coconut milk, little by little into a pot.


Step #8 – Heat the Coconut Milk

After scooping out the Coconut Milk, just heat it to boiling point. Cook for 1 hour or until it turns brown in colour.

Step #9 – Stir the Coconut Oil

Once it turns brown, you will see the Coconut oil separate from the milk which is now a granular brown particles. Bring it down from the heat and allow to cool.

Step #10 – Collect Coconut Oil

Once the Oil is cooled, you can now get a dry piece of cloth to separate the oil from the brown particles and you can now pour it into a bottle for use.
