I knew that my “cheese is my chocolate” mantra had to be good for something. According to a new study to come out of the powerhouse trio of the Harvard School of Public Health, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and the Harvard Medical School, fantastically full-fat dairy products are better for those still hoping to have children, while the low-fat junk could be linked to ovulatory disorders and infertility.

Dr. Chavarro’s advice to women trying to conceive is to change their diet for a while. He said “They should consider changing low-fat dairy foods for high-fat dairy foods; for instance, by swapping skimmed milk for whole milk and eating ice cream, not low fat yoghurt.”

WOO-HOO! Mitchell’s Macapuno, here I come!

But it was important to do this without increasing their daily calorie intake or upsetting the balance of overall saturated fat consumption, he said.

Oh. Darn.

Of course, before child-hopeful cheeseheads go out and eat an entire tome of oozy, goozy Gratte-Paille, just wait a minute; I’m sure another medical report will come along to refute or neutralize this claim.
