Day 149- Nutrition Bite

Reproductive endocrinologist and gynecologist Dr. Metzger puts all her patients, whether they are trying to conceive or not, on a "white-out diet" free of white flour, white sugar, white pasta, and other similar carbs. Dr. Metzger warns that estrogen and progesterone enhance the release of insulin from the pancreas which worsens insulin resistance, which may lead to gestational diabetes. Removing white-carb foods from your diet will improve the insulin of infertility patients and help women with reproductive challenges such as endometriosis.
