I have PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome). Do you have any advice?
We’ve discussed this with medical and dietetic experts who tell us that, in general, it’s recommended that women with PCOS follow the same sort of healthy diet and lifestyle changes recommended to the population as a whole. That is to limit fat (especially saturated fat), sugar and salt intake, and include plenty of fruit, vegetables and starchy carbohydrate food. Weight loss can certainly be of great benefit.
Food Optimising is based on these current healthy eating guidelines, and is an ideal way to eat a balanced diet, lose weight and maintain your new weight long-term.
However, as with all medical conditions, we’d always recommend that you follow any medical or dietary advice given by your doctor, which may be tailored to your individual needs.
