How to Lose Weight if You Have PCOS
Obesity or persistent weight gain is a common feature of polycystic ovarian syndrome. Many women find it almost impossible to lose weight, even when on a strict diet. It seems that every calorie that is eaten is stored as fat.
Here are some steps you can take to lose weight in a healthy way.
1. Eat a Healthy Diet.
The Natural Diet Solution e-book gives you a comprehensive and scientifically-proven diet plan for losing weight.
A healthy diet means eating foods that are whole, fresh, and organic. Minimize consumption of refined, processed or fabricated foods. Minimize fast foods. Eat foods with a lower glycemic index. Emphasize vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds. Preferred animal proteins are fish and poultry. What you eat can have a profoundly favorable effect on the hormones that govern your weight.
2. Exercise and be physically active.
Regular exercise has been proven to help you to lose weight and balance your insulin and testosterone levels. The Natural Diet Solution ebook has an extensive chapter about exercise and how it helps you to lose weight, regain your fertility, and reduce other symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome.
If you consistently exercise, you will see good results!
3. Find ways to deal with stress.
Chronic stress increases cortisol, which is a stress-response hormone. Elevated cortisol is associated with insulin resistance and increased abdominal fat. The PCOS diet e-book has a detailed chapter on how to manage stress and help reduce your belly fat.
4. Use nutritional supplements.
Food surveys conducted by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture and other agencies consistently show that Americans consume a diet that is deficient in essential nutrients. Therefore, nutritional supplementation is indicated for many individuals. Supplementation should contribute to your overall health and help your body to balance your hormones, thus contributing to successful weight loss.
The supplements most appropriate for you will depend on your specific health conditions. Visit our Supplements page for more information about dietary supplements.
And remember, nutritional supplements can't help you very much unless you improve your diet and get regular exercise. A healthy diet and regular exercise are the absolute prerequisites for successful, permanent weight loss. There are no exceptions to this rule.
5. Consider other factors.
A number of additional weight loss factors are reviewed in the e-book, including food allergies and fatty liver degeneration. Read this e-book to find out more about some under-recognized factors that influence weight loss.
Your best approach to successful weight loss is to first educate yourself as to what is causing you the weight problem, and then carry out a healthy diet and exercise program. All of this is comprehensively described in e-book.
6. Consult with a naturopathic or other physician.
If you have a weight problem, you know by now how hard it is lose weight and keep it off. We recommend that you work with a naturopathic doctor, medical doctor or other licensed health professional to develop the most appropriate weight loss program for your specific situation.
7. Join a support group.
You're much more likely to have success if you surround yourself with others who are supportive and encourage you to continue with healthy habits.
In addition to family members, friends and health professionals, you might also find out if there are any PCOS support groups in your area.
