How Do I Lose PCOS Weight if No Gym Available?

Hi Gemma,

I was discovered as having PCOS two years back. I was suffering from this problem since I had started my period 15/16 years back but no information was available that time about this.

Anyway I was put on medication, diet and excercise regime as soon as we discovered my problem. I followed it religiously and have lost about 18 kg of weight.

I took medicine for 11 months. for the past one year I am off the medicine but observing my diet and exercise. My periods had become regular as soon as I had started my medicine and now they are not giving me any problem.

My height is 5'2" and I weigh 64 kg right now. I want to lose at least 5/7 kg more but now my weight has become steady.

I live in a village where gyms are not available so I go for walks in the morning. I walk for 6 km at the speed of 10 minutes/1 km. I am regular with my diet. I also do some exercise and yoga in the evening but I have to admit that I am not very regular with that. I am very regular with my walk though.

Can you give me any suggestion regarding how to start losing again without going to the gym as that is not possible? I would really appreciate that.

Thank you for your time.

Hello and thank you for your email.

I have a PCOez @ home plan in my PCOEz Fitness book that has a great and easy to follow fitness plan for exactly your situation!

I grew up in a village that seemed to be in the middle of NO WHERE that’s only attraction was a public house! So I am fully appreciative of your situation!

Good job with your walking, that is a great start, but if you are looking to take it to the next step then the PCOez @ Home plan is going to be for you. Try it for 6 weeks and see how you feel…

I use household items like a broomstick and tin cans so you don’t have to purchase any weights or lifting bars ect… This will give you a little increase of lean body mass enough to keep your fat burning increasing whilst you are walking in a morning.

Try to walk before you eat your breakfast but always take some food or a isotonic drink with you incase of a drop in blood sugar. AND ALWAYS DRINK ALOT OF WATER!!!!!

I hope that this helps you and have fun training at home!
