What You Need to Know About How to Approach Exercise and Fertility

  1. Make sure that you understand your starting point, either as BMI or body fat percentage.
  2. Develop a plan to get your weight in your ideal range. Your target should be between 20 to 25 as a BMI, or 17% to 19% as a body fat percentage.
  3. If you are overweight, consider adding exercise to your life to form an energy deficit and help you lose weight. If you are underweight, try to consume more calories to get into your ideal range to try to conceive.
  4. Consider seeking nutrition counseling for help with this process.
