How To Achieve PCOS Weight Loss

How To Achieve PCOS Weight Loss

There are many reasons why a person may struggle to lose weight. They may struggle not only with a mental block that makes them feel bad about themselves, but also a physical one. One such disorder is PCOS that causes both of these issues. However, it is still possible for a sufferer of this syndrome to lose weight. Here is some information about PCOS weight loss.

Before you can understand how to lose weight with PCOS, you need to understand what it is. PCOS, or polycystic ovary syndrome is a condition that causes women to expel too many follicles from their ovaries instead of eggs. It causes many issues like weight gain, depression, hirsutism or male hair growth on the face and body, impaired fertility and much more.

Since it is a hereditary condition, many women in the same family can have it to differing degrees. Due to that factor and the unknown cause, it is difficult to treat and there is no cure.

Still, the depression and weight gain go hand-in-hand with each other and the fact that women with this disorder feel terrible about themselves. They feel like they cannot lose weight since their body keeps making them gain or hold on to extra weight.

To start a weight loss plan with this disorder, you must consult a physician. They can recommend you a plan that will work with your body and condition in a safe manner. They can also give you an accurate estimate of how much weight would be beneficial for you to lose.

The next step is to create your weight loss plan. You cannot simply jump in without any direction. You need to see weight loss as a series of small tasks, rather than one huge task. There has been research done that shows even small weight loss can positive impact the mental issues associated with this condition. Starting small and achieving some type of success can make a big difference in your life and health.

The next step is to go over your diet. You need a registered nutritionist help you with this so that your body gets what it needs not only to survive but to help with the PCOS, too. There has been a bit of research on the relationship between PCOS and insulin resistance, so you may encounter a diet that looks similar to someone that had diabetes. There may also be an emphasis on complex carbs and protein. However, everybody’s needs are different and working with your nutritionist can help get you on the right track.

Your doctor should make sure that your meds work with your plan. It is believed that medications that help with blood glucose levels can work well with a PCOS weight loss plan.

Lastly, you need to think about your exercise regimen. For someone with PCOS, 30 to 60 minutes of vigorous exercise is suggested. Start with some low-impact ones and work your way up to more rigorous activities. Things like strength training and aerobics can also help. Make sure to speak with your doctor about what is best for you.

As you have read, you can enter into a PCOS weight loss plan and successfully lose weight. Medical professionals must monitor it, but with some hard work, you can do it. Good luck!
