Thats amazing!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
Keep going and remember its a lifestyle change not a diet to Keep that good feeling up๐Ÿ˜
Keto is really bad for long term, cutting the things out that you have is already the best thing! If you can sugar is another big one that doesnt help, Also the longer you do it the better youll feel!

I know inositol powder is great for reducing cravings , hunger , acne and bringing back periods.
Fish oil capsules and oily fish is great for inflammation and decreasing those joint pains.
Cutting down on caffeine and swapping your morning coffee for a matcha latte and going decaf through the rest of the day is great for adrenaline dysfunction /anxiety /fatigue/aches and pains.
Eating 40g of protein for breakfast will increase energy levels.
Slow weighted workouts or yoga are great to lower insulin levels , adrenaline dysfunction and loose weight.
Eating more vegetables, less fruit , cut out sugar , cut down on dairy .
Watch how much carbs youโ€™re eating and make sure your eating whole foods and incorporating good fats like avocados ๐Ÿฅ‘ coconut/olive oil , olives etc . Bio cultures can help with bloating and digestion.

Sugar is going to be DIFFICULT! I literally crave it. It is strange but a cup of coffee seems to help! Any other (probably better) suggestions to calming the sugar demons would be amazing? Doctor has pretty much said I have insulin resistance.

It is really confusing info on the internet because experts on social media and people with PCOS are saying that the Keto Diet and Intermittent Fasting are the way to go and it's worked for them. I worry about the pressure that this would be place on my body (especially with any kind of fasting) and you are totally right Abbs it is lifestyle changes. I am not looking for a short term fix and I worry that Keto or fasting will really mess with my hormones (even more than already!!). There seem to be split perspectives on what is going to help. I do know since cutting gluten, soy and dairy my tummy has never felt so good. I am eternally grateful! Me and my tummy thank you.
