I completely agree with IVONNEALDANAL. Her tips for losing the weight are spot on. I decidded this time not to do anything that I wasn't prepared to do the rest of my life. You've got to make a lifestyle change forever....not do extreme diets. I am proof that even with PCOS it can be done. Eliminate flours and sugars from your diet, beware of sodium, exercise , and you'll soon see results. I 've lost 115 pounds in 9 months.

If you want be a butterfly then you you have to want to fly so badly that you are prepared to give up being a caterpillar.

Well the fat sick and nearly dead the jucing is actually a reboot. It pretty much detoxis your system. My froends who tried it have not gained any of the weight back from doing it. But for us who have PCOS it may be different emoticon

Don't do that kind of dieting, it is really bad for you... on a person NOT TAKING metmorfin this is what happens:

You can lose A LOT of weight very very FAST... and then gaining it all and more (been there done that), the advice is: strive for a maximum of 2 pounds a week, eating a low cal diet and exercising 3 to 4 times a week

in a person on metmorfin:

First of all depending on how much metmorfin are you taking you could have a hypoglycemic episode (an abnormally diminished content of glucose in the blood.[1] The term literally means "low sugar blood") so you could faint, I take 1700mg each day and I don't have a lot of side effects, sometimes I am cold when the weather is hot and that's it, BUT my best friend takes 850mg and she gets dizzy and nauseas, she had an hypoglycemic episode because she took the pill and didn't ate for 2 hours so it's dangerous.

My advice, because of my struggle is:

Walk or run 4 times a week 40 minutes each time, depending on your size (I'm 5'3 weight 226) I try to eat no more then 1,200 calories each day, when I exercise I ate about 1,600 calories, BUT It is important to be careful of what you eat, is not only the calories but the kind of food you eat, you should not be eating white flour (no bread, no pastries, no cakes) only whole wheat bread and complex carbs, that works, but don't expect to lose 2 pounds each week all the time, PCOS keep us from losing weight like an average person (a person with no PCOS)

just be patient, its difficult but you can do it... I strongly recommend you NOT to do juices diets, eat balanced according to your body needs.

Best wishes

Ivo!

Well I work with a guy who told me about it. He and his wife both did it and and after 15 days he lost 30 lbs and she lost 28 lbs. So I really want to try especially since I know that even losing 10% of your weight it really helps with trying to get prego. I just started 750 mg of metformin last night and then in 10 days I am supposed to take 2 a day. So I think I will wait until July to start it as well so that hopefully my body has regulated to the metformin. Thanks for the advice emoticon and congrats on your wedding coming up emoticon

I am about to start doing the same thing in July, unless you are not feeling well or it is bothering you, I'd say you are ok.
I'd definitely ask your doctor if you have any worries about it.
I watched the documentary as well and it intrigued me. I was just waiting till after my wedding on the 30th to do it since I cannot alter my wedding dress any more.

Has anyone ever tried being on metformin and doing the jucing diet on the fat, sick and naerly dead website? It is drinking 64 oz a day of raw fruits and vegtables. I didn't know if this would be a good idea since I am on metformin now emoticon
