Diet for a vegan with PCOS

Diet for a vegan with PCOS

Hi everyone! I'm struggling to lose weight after I gained 15lbs out of no where a few months ago. I know that a low carb, low glycemic diet works well but I try to stick to a plant based diet as much as I can (I'll have diary on occasion but haven't had meat in over 6 years). Does anyone has advice or experience with a similar situation?

Thank you!!!

Ovulation pain?? + Diet for PCOS?

Ovulation pain?? + Diet for PCOS?

Hey ladies, I was recently told that I have PCOS and I haven't seen my doctor just yet for a follow up, so i figured I'd try to get a few answers here. The reason I went into the docs office in the first place was because of very severe pelvic pain. Ive been on birth control for a full month now and the pain has reduced, but is still there. I'm mostly experiencing the pain during ovulation - i'm wondering if anyone knows whether or not this is related to PCOS or is something… read more

Gum infection

Gum infection

Hello!

Since I was 16 years the doctors told me that I had PCOS and I have still the normal symptoms: hirsurtism, acne, oil skin...but I follow a healthy diet and my weight is normal. Since July I have gingivitis and I was visiting different dentists, but finally I couldn't solve the problem. Do you know if there is a relation between the PCOS and the gum infections? Or maybe is it because I take the birth control pill as a treatment?

Thank you in advance!

Oh I meant to say dentists said it wasnt my teeth it was my gums, just to clarify but the food would get stuck back there causing issues

Is anyone familiar with Natural Solutions for PCOS diet plan?

Is anyone familiar with Natural Solutions for PCOS diet plan?

I was wondering if anyone else has tried the diet plan in the book The Natural Health Solutions for PCOS and Infertility? I purchased and downloaded the book over the weekend and feel pretty optimistic. First of all it does a great job of exploring the complexities of PCOS, and goes into the science behind what is going on in our bodies. I'm a bit of a book nerd so once it peaked my interest I had a hard time putting it down. I've started the eating… read more
