What is an effective way to lose weight to improve fertility?

The key concept with weight loss to improve fertility is to increase fat metabolism, that is, to burn fat even when weight may be stable. Individuals who exercise regularly quite often lose weight initially, then go through a period of time where their weight loss plateaus. As frustrating as this phenomenon can be, they are still receiving benefits from their workouts because they are still burning fat; it is just being replaced with muscle that is more dense than fat.
