The latest research published in Clinical Science shows that getting half of your daily calorie intake in the a.m. is a good way to help increase
your fertility levels (although having a stud muffin like the one above serving it to you probably wouldn't hurt either).
The small study conducted by researches at two Israeli universities involved 60 women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is a disorder that increases the amount of male sex hormones circulating in a woman’s blood, causing menstrual irregularities which make it difficult for a woman to become pregnant.
The women were divided into two groups and given a daily caloric intake of 1,800. Half consumed their largest meal of the day during breakfast, while the other half ate it during dinner. The results showed that morning feasters enjoyed a 50 per cent drop in testosterone levels after 12 weeks and half of them started ovulating by the end of the study period, compared to just 20 per cent from the big-dinner group.
Based on these results, it could mean that meal timing and size can indeed manipulate hormone levels. The theory is that eating more in the morning improves insulin sensitivity, which in turn reduces male hormones among PCOS sufferers. Synching meals with natural sleep-wake rhythms also helps in regulating hormone production, making the body less likely to overproduce the wrong hormones.

This is probably because hair removal creams are pretty different from waxing or shaving. Read more
