Great suggestions

Hi, I read your column more often than not, however, it is not always that I learn something that I did not know earlier. I am a polycystic syndrome patient and have gone off medication to try bring changes to my lifestyle and recover. I weigh 55kgs and I'm trying to get to 50. I do all that you've spoken about but it's not really helping. But I like that part which says that we need to make a lifestyle change. I shall work on that. Thanks!

PCOS
by: Steve

Hi Greece,

Great to hear from you. I'm sorry to hear that you haven't achieved the results you would like at this stage. I have trained many women with PCOS in the past and there are some very specific strategies that need to be employed if you want to achieve your weight-loss goal.

Please feel free to send through your current weight-loss plan and I will review it for you and offer any suggestions if necessary.

Here are a few recommendations for you any way:

1. Follow a low-carb diet. Since PCOS results in some degree of insulin resistance (IR), a low-carb diet will help to overcome the IR.
2. Use glucose disposal agents. These will also help to normalise insulin function and overcome any insulin resistance.
3. Use supplements that prevent 'aromatisation' in the body. Since oestrogens, progesterone and androgens are very similar in chemical structure, preventing the conversion of the female hormones into the male hormones will improve your body's functioning.
4. Perform exercise every day. Everyday exercise is essential in helping to improve your condition especially as it relates to insulin resistance. I highly recommend performing both aerobic exercise and resistance exercise.

Once you achieve the extra weight loss you desire and improve your PCOS condition, you can then reduce your exercise frequency, increase your carbohydrate intake and reduce the use of the supplements that have been mentioned here.

However, as you mentioned it is all about creating a lifestyle for yourself. This will help you achieve the results you want and best of all, maintain them long term.

All the best,

Steve.
