PCOS! What is the best exercise for me?

by Beverlee Matahiki
(Tokomaru Bay, Gisborne New Zealand)

Hi I'm only 27 years old, diagnose with PCOS when I was 22-23 years old.

I'm finding it hard to drop the weight, that I carry mostly in the front.

I don't eat as much, and I try to eat 5 small meals a day. During the mid-day I start to feel tired! I'm taking Metformin, Spironolactone, Folic Acid, and Iron with Vitamin C.

At the moment I weight 102kg don't really know my height.

And if you saw how I look, I don't really look that heavy, thats what the DR said.

Please tell me How? and What to do?



Thank you for your question.

To answer your question fully I would have to know more about what you are eating in the morning, but I can suggest some pretty foolproof ways of general training for you to get started.

Try and “move” at least 3 times a day. Losing body fat is much more of a state of mind than a method, so the more that you move the more energy you will have. For 4 weeks try this simple program every day:

Move for 10 minutes before breakfast – walk, step, jog ect…
Move for 10 minutes before lunch
Move for 20 minutes before your evening meal, and make sure that your evening meal contains little energy foods. (carbohydrates)

This is a highly simply program but is a great way to start feeling more energetic. Try also adding a full multi vitamin and mineral supplement to your regime and see how you feel.

Sometimes the most simple things in life are the most effective!

Good luck and let me know how you get on.
