Using SMART Goals in Male Infertility

Smoking-bad for sperm
Abdominal obesity-bad for sperm
Sedentary lifestyle-bad for sperm

Tell a patient, "lose weight", "eat better", "exercise" -worthless for sperm

Better approach- SMART

1: Walk track once this week and call me to tell me
2: Eat one vegetarian meal next week. 
3: Go one day without smoking.

Small, manageable, achievable, relavent, and testable goals.  Now that is SMART.
