A former sufferer of PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), I realized the importance of maintaining a healthy diet and overall lifestyle. Over 5 years I battled with the frustration of trial and error, extreme dieting and feeling self-conscious about my weight. I thought I was doing everything right -I cut out carbs, avoided wheat, ate less than 500 calories a day and exercised every day. I was still unhappy with my progress, energy levels and metabolic tolerance to food. Eventually, through learning, research and being nutritionally aware – I discovered the NutriEats way. Eating healthy & exercising slowly became a lifestyle for me. I became happier and healthier, saw changes in my physique, I could wear what I wanted, fit into clothes I never imagined I could and felt more confident as a person.
*PCOS affects 1 in 5 women and causes weight gain amongst other symptoms. PCOS is often a catch 22 for women as the only way to treat the symptoms is to lose weight, yet it is harder to lose weight than normal.
