Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 6, 2006
Laurence A. Jacobs, MD, who has been a guest on Oprah and is recognized as one of America’s Top Doctors, has created a Fitness and Weight Loss program for his overweight patients willing to make a serious commitment to using proper nutrition and physical conditioning to aid their fertility therapy. Given the fact that only a 5-10% weight loss can dramatically improve fertility treatment pregnancy rates, Dr. Jacobs told his patients, “You have nothing to lose . . . but weight!” Dr. Jacobs, who has battled with weight issues his whole life, finally found success and steadily lost weight with the help of a new form of proven technology. And, he wanted his overweight patients and world to know how he was losing weight. Dr. Jacobs especially wanted his overweight patients to know because that knowledge could increase their chances of getting pregnant & having a baby.
The incredible new technology Dr. Jacobs discovered for himself is the X2 Vest. The X2 is an adjustable weight vest that can easily be worn in the gym, outdoors, or just around the house. The X2 Vest works safely and effectively allowing the individual to add weight to their CORE (the mid-section of the body) in one-pound increments. Adding weight to your body requires more muscle fibers to be called into action, thus requiring more calories to be burned, which allows muscle development and weight loss, and most importantly in this case … potentially improving pregnancy rates.

On March, 8th, 2006, at 7:00 pm CST Dr. Jacobs and his patients will become pioneers in this groundbreaking effort to increase pregnancy chances! Dr. Jacobs and his patients will meet at the Wyndham Garden Hotel, 900 West Lake Cook Road, Buffalo Grove, Illinois 60089 (847-215-8883). Dr. Jacobs will help his patients become more fit and lose weight by using the X2 Vest. George Morrison, inventor of the X2 Vest and president of X2, will be available for interviews and information. One of Mr. Morrison’s other products had been voted “Best Fitness Product” by Muscle & Fitness Magazine and voted “Must Have Fitness Product” by Shape Magazine.
In overweight women with excessive adipose tissue, abnormal pituitary hormone secretions are common, leading to a lack of proper ovulation. Obesity is strongly related to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Overweight woman are also particularly susceptible to Diabetes and Insulin resistance. Lack of exercise and activity play a major role for overweight women. Even with the use of fertility medications or IVF treatments, pregnancy rates are adversely affected by obesity. Even if they achieve a pregnancy, many studies confirm that obese women have an increased risk of pregnancy complications and adverse perinatal outcomes, such as miscarriage, preeclampsia, stillbirth, early neonatal death and birth defects (brain, heart, and neural tube defects).
Many studies have shown that in obese women, especially those with PCOS, 5-10% weight loss often results in resumption of ovulation and higher pregnancy rates with all fertility treatments. For women who actively manage their obesity or PCOS via good nutrition, proper exercise, and help from a Reproductive Endocrinologist with expertise in the latest treatments, the chances of conceiving are extremely good.
Dr. Jacobs has annually been chosen as one of the top 1% of all fertility specialists in America by Castle Connelly, the publisher of the consumer health care guide America's Top Doctors 2000-2005. In Chicago, where Dr. Jacobs practices, Castle Connelly has also chosen him as a “Chicago’s Top Doctor” in all their editions.
Dr. Jacobs has been on Oprah, he writes a newspaper column on infertility & the media calls on him for his expertise.
By the way, Dr. Jacobs has lost 16 pounds in the last eight weeks using his X2 Vest. He’ll tell you his secret of how it has all happened on March 8th! Dr. Jacobs X2 Team will meet on March 8th.
