    I think the general case that increased body fat increases the chance of fertility is because, generally, overweight people are better nourished than underweight people.
    Yeah.... that makes sense especially because processed foods are often "enriched with vitamins and minerals" where your body builder is eating a limited selection of whole foods.

    Unfortunately, protein powder still rules the bodybuilding world, oatmeal is still the #1 consumed carb and they're still throwing away the egg yolks or buying those disgusting cartons of liquid egg whites. Gross. Does the average bodybuilder have a better diet than the average American? Probably. They're not choking down lots of pizza, chicken alfredo, doughnuts and TV dinners, but it's still low in fat soluble vitamins and high in weird powders and pills that I swear the only weight loss they cause is in your wallet!
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Really? Those are some of the more ridiculous things I've ever read.

    Certainly, excess fat is not good for women, but I think our bodies really think that a lack of fat is a really bad thing and even shut down certain processes to preserve it. Fighting to get fat that our bodies need to reproduce off of use is going to be really hard for most women to the point of damaging systems. Sucks that needed fat accumulates in bad places though.

I mean thousands of welfare mamas are not eating lean protein, fruits and vegetables. They are malnourished but with plenty of fat.
    Every female is different in respect to how much body fat she needs to have in order to be fertile as well. Also, stress (physical and mental) also plays a role in fertility.

    Low fat diets are horrible for fertility.

    While I doubt I was <30-35% fat, since I was not watching anything back then, and was able to have a dessert after supper
