Whether you know it or not, It’s likely that someone in your life has suffered from PCOS. PCOS or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome refers to a hormonal disorder resulting from small cysts which grow on a woman’s ovaries. It is fairly common, affecting 1 in 5 women.
Well-known personalities such as Victoria Beckham and Emma Thompson have all suffered from PCOS, yet it’s still a topic that is not discussed enough.You, like many people out there, may have never heard of it before you came across this blog post. Many women will go through life not knowing they have it, or not knowing how to go about treating it once they are diagnosed.
While there is no cure for PCOS, you can certainly manage and treat your symptoms. The only known way to do this through weight loss and maintaining a healthy and balanced diet. According to studies a “decrease of just 5% of body mass can have a positive impact on PCOS.”
This is a topic that is very important and personal to us at NutriEats because I once suffered from PCOS. I struggled to treat it and for 5 years, I attempted to lose the weight through multiple well-known diets such as the 5:2 diet, the Atkins diet and the blood group diet. Nothing worked. None of these diets are sustainable and I was left frustrated and disheartened.
Once I embraced the NutriEats lifestyle, I lost 25kg in the span of two years and my symptoms disappeared! It was only through a healthy, well-balanced diet and regular exercise, the two key things we espouse here at NutriEats, that I managed to see and feel a difference in my body. I couldn’t be happier!
And I’m not the only one. NutriEats has worked with women who suffer from PCOS, and they have all experienced positive results!
