Fertility Weight Loss Program
Lose weight & increase your chance of getting pregnant with WIFI
Half of all fertility patients, male and female alike, are overweight, which makes it more difficult to achieve pregnancy. To help those patients conceive, we have launched a unique weight loss program that is a joint venture between University of Colorado Advanced Reproductive Medicine (ARM) and the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center (AHWC).
WIFI (Wellness Interdisciplinary Fertility Initiative) is the only program of its kind in the country, combining specialists in fertility and weight management to create a referral network and patient co-management system. WIFI is driven by advanced research of the infertility/obesity link and by science-based weight loss techniques.
Dr. Polotsky’s research examines obesity and fertility issues such as the specific ways obesity affects hormones and the quality of sperm. Dr. Wyatt is an internationally acclaimed expert in weight loss and weight loss maintenance whose initiatives incorporate state-of-the-art metabolic, behavioral and environmental assessments to customize a diet and exercise plan that yields lasting results.
The result for infertility patients will be more successful weight loss and increased prospects of attaining pregnancy.
- The data linking obesity to reduced fertility are striking
- Program is designed specifically for people experiencing infertility
- Couples are treated together if desired
- Program is customized for each participant
- Two approaches to achieving pregnancy and weight loss goals
- Two science-based disciplines drive results
We focus on attaining your goal with the guidance of two expert teams. All WIFI patients receive fertility therapy at ARM’s new Stapleton clinic and participate in innovative weight loss management at AHWC, a complete health and fitness facility.
Unlike other weight loss programs or fertility centers, WIFI gives patients access to a full range of fertility and health services outside of the program, such as integrative medicine, yoga and acupuncture.
