So I have been trying to lose weight recently and I have failed quite miserably. It turns out I have been eating the wrong foods.
I have done quite a bit of research and I found some quite helpful pages. I know I'm not alone in the food department so I thought I'd give you lovely ladies an insight to what to eat and what to avoid.
Foods to add:

2. Lean protein (chicken, fish, tofu)

My hormones are balanced but I still deal with hirsutism on a daily basis. So much so that I shave (my face) every day, if not twice a day.
Has anyone tried Ovasitol? It claims to be "a high quality, medical-grade supplement that combines both myo and d-chiro-inositol that mimic’s the body’s own ratio" and boasts it will " improve insulin sensitivity, restore hormone balance, improve ovulation and egg quality in women with PCOS."
I just ordered some and have yet to try it. Simply looking for feedback. Any reviews from your own personal experience with it would be greatly appreciated.
Do any of you ladies struggle with fatigue? I have it so bad! Im ALWAYS tired like if I ran a 7k and sleepy. Is there anything i could take to help?
I struggle with my weight so badly. It's frustrating I eat small portions, exercise, and eat mostly non- processed food, I don't know what else to do I lost a bunch and then gained it all back and then some and I didn't do anything differently.

I know that its normal for hair to change over our lifetimes, but in just a few short years my hair transitioned from mostly straight to incredibly curly and unruly. I read a study that claimed testosterone can change the shape of the hair follicles. Anyone else go through this?
I'm pretty much always tired, but during my periods I feel exhausted to the point where I am late for work, cannot properly function, and am so lethargic. Does anyone else experience this? How do you deal with this?
So ive been taking Myo-inositol (Brand name: Myova) for about a month now. Is anyone else on this? Did it have any effect/help with PCOS? How long did it take to have an effect? And did you conceive whilst taking it? (:
