What foods to eat and to avoid with PCOS.

What foods to eat and to avoid with PCOS.

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:

1. High fiber vegetables (cauliflower, peppers, almonds, berries, sweet potato)

Ovasitol

Ovasitol

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.

Thanks,

Nicole

Any advise for subduing or getting rid of hirsutism?

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.

Hair texture changes?

Hair texture changes?

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?

MORE THAN ONE TYPE OF PCOS??

MORE THAN ONE TYPE OF PCOS??

I saw that there is more than one type of PCOS and I'm really confused. I read another post but I don't have diabetes which the post said is what type 1 is. Is there a group or page that shows what symptoms are in type 1 and type 2 instead of people saying what the differences are? I am doing my research so I can make sure I am asking the right questions to my primary care doctor or when I get an OB/GYN. I only got diagnosed last year and was given birth control and spironolactone was… read more

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?
