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