A Different Approach For Weight Loss & PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
After a long struggle with skipped periods, weight gain, and hair growing where you don’t want it, and falling out where you want it, you’ve finally been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
Now you’re hearing phrases like “greater risk for diabetes,” “increased androgen levels,” “cardiovascular events.”
You probably were also told that living a healthy lifestyle (eating right, exercising, managing stress) is your best bet for successfully managing PCOS and losing weight. In other words, all the things you’ve been trying to do without success in the past.
