I was diagnosed with this condition a long time ago but I never took it serious. But after years of highs and really low lows, I am ready to face it, lose the weight that is aggravating it and be healthier.
I have been doing a lot of reading about successful weight loss with PCOS, especially when it comes to diet. I have read lots of information on low carbs and sugars. I have read lots of information on water, sleep and exercise.
I haven't completely eliminated carbs, but I have reduced them. I spend a lot of time eating fruits, vegetables and salads. The carbs I do allow in my diet are whole wheat and I rarely eat processed food or drink soda anymore. I am trying to work up to being a runner, I also bike ride and take long walks. I probably should get out and exercise more often but since I work and attend school, I usually can only manage the weekends, though I am trying to get up early two days a week and exercise as well before work.
So I wanted to see what has worked for you? Is there a diet or certain foods you avoid to help lose weight with PCOS? How often do you exercise?
