Fighting the Resistance with diet

Insulin Resistance is the problem I fight every day,Image I have to watch what I eat as I cannot have carbs, starch and high sugar content in my food. This makes it really hard to find things to eat on the go and for main meals and even harder when I go out to restaurants. I started to see a pattern in my weight gain while eating food that consisted of these things, for a slice of bread I would put on 3pnds in weight, so this meant that carbohydrate had to be removed from my diet. There is not a lot of information out there for PCOS diets and I found it hard to come across any diet plans. The information all consisted of the same types of things: Continue reading

Exercise!!!!

Image

Right that’s it, I’m going to fight this Insulin Resistance!! I have purchased a cross trainer/bike with weights and have started to do 30mins a day on it to start off. I have read online that this is crucial to do exercise to fight the bulge and it also helps with hormones. With walking a 20min walk to uni everyday there and back, I should soon see a change (I hope).

I will let you know how I get on, any advice welcome 🙂

The trouble with Doctors!

pcos d

I have had the worst experience with Doctors. Since I was 12 they told me I had IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and after they diagnosed me with this, they just gave me pills to take daily and sent me on my way, but the problems were not solved!
I was experiencing acute pain low down in my abdomen and was in and out of hospital. Ultrasound, after x-ray, after scan, they found nothing. On my 15th birthday they told me that they were going to send me to a clinic to have a colonoscopy and an endoscopy procedure. After going through this horrible experience of two cameras places they shouldn’t be, they were no clearer on what was wrong with me and said to continue with the pills they put me on…..

Well what is PCOS?

If you have just been diagnosed by the doctor or think you may have PCOS, you might not really understand what’s happening to your body, what you have been diagnosed with and what it means for your life now? Things are going to have to change for you and the realisation of some of the stuff you find out can be hard, but knowing the insides and out of the syndrome you can better prepare yourself in taking control of what is going on. Researching helped me tremendously with what I had to change in my life style and also what to be asking the doctors… Continue reading
