Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
So I've been doing everything right, working really hard, had some success in the beginning but hit a plateau. Some of the things I tried to get over the plateau actually just made it worse. I'm almost back up at my starting weight.
People keep saying "just keep at it and keep a calorie deficit and it WILL work!" But it's just NOT working.
I was diagnosed with PCOS about nine years ago, right after I gained 50lbs in a month. So I know that PCOS causes weight, but can it prevent weight loss as well?
Ladies, has anyone else dealt with this? Could this be a reason that I'm not losing weight? Is there any way around it?
I know that wi th PCOS that carbs are a big issue. Maybe try doing a diet like south beach. They have cook books and everything that help with the south beach diet.
Hi!! I too have pcos. I never ate like a pig however, i was up to nearly 400 lbs years ago. I cut out carbs and the pounds came right off. Unfortunately, that gets boring. When i did this diet, i was strict. No snacks, no cheatimg and no carbs, which ultimately led to me packing on half of what i lost. Now im getting back down there again. I suggest if youre going to have carbs do it right before your day begins. Dont over indulge and dont deprive yourself. I guarantee ypull see results if you reduce your carb intake some more!
