- Vera’s symptoms of PCOS made it a struggle to lose weight. The important factors were selecting foods that did not trigger the PCOS.
Because the medications for her PCOS added to water retention and bloating, increased water intake was crucial. Added cravings that came with PCOS were sweets, so we tailored sweet meals with fewer sugars to satisfy these cravings.
We increased vitamin D which played a major role in this condition, as it does with seasonal depression as well.
- With the many factors of PCOS, the depression and the baby weight Vera had defeated herself in her mind.
A positive state of mind is crucial. The way you talk to yourself is vital throughout the process. We worked hard at turning perspective from the cup being half empty, to the cup being half full and this allowed the weight loss to closely follow!
