Weight Loss for PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)

Dealing with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) can feel like a real challenge, especially when it comes to managing your weight. But don’t worry, we’re here to shed some light on the situation and offer you some guidance along the way.

PCOS is a pretty common condition among young women, and it’s all about the ovaries not quite playing by the rules and an excess of those pesky male hormones. Most of the time, it doesn’t come with any obvious symptoms, which can make it a bit tricky to spot.

Signs and symptoms you should be on the lookout for? 

Well, they can vary quite a bit from person to person, but some common ones include:

  • Irregular periods
  • Unexpected weight gain
  • Struggling to get pregnant
  • Excess hair such as facial hair 
  • Hair thinning on scalp

What happens if PCOS is not treated?

If you leave PCOS untreated, things can get serious down the line. Type 2 Diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep problems, and even an increased risk of heart issues like heart attacks and strokes. 

Why is it so difficult to lose weight with PCOS? 

It all comes down to your body’s hunger signals going a bit haywire thanks to wonky insulin levels and other appetite-regulating hormones doing their own thing.

Losing weight can actually make a big difference for women with PCOS. By getting those insulin levels under control and dialling back those pesky hunger pangs, you can start to see some real progress. It’s not just about cutting calories or hitting the gym like a maniac, though. We’re talking about understanding your body and finding a personalised approach that works for you.
