Eat, Drink and Be Fertile?
"The Holiday Season." That single phrase likely conjures a mix of memories, emotions, sentiments, and anticipation. For many of us, the holiday season is an opportunity to gather with friends and family and to share in traditions both old and new.

When meeting with patients in my fertility clinic, one of the most common questions that I am asked is, "What kind of diet should we be on to improve our fertility?" The answer to the basic concept of lifestyle change to improve fertility is nuanced and there is no "one size fits all" response to the question.
