The Insulite PCOS System – Nutrition and Exercise Plans
The goal of the Insulite PCOS Nutrition and Exercise Plans is based on changing your existing behavior patterns
to help reverse the symptoms of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). Research has shown
that the majority of people fail when they attempt to make major
behavioral changes in their lives, like quitting smoking and
drinking, or losing weight by changing their nutrition and starting
a new exercise program. You might be one of these people.
Why the answer is based on scientific research. From
a neurological standpoint, the reason you behave the way you
do is because groups of neurons and connections in your brain
direct your actions. The only way to transform your existing
behavior patterns is to change these established neural connections
that are called neural networks.
Research shows the most effective way to change existing
neural networks, and therefore the behaviors they direct,
is gradually. You did not develop overnight the neural networks that direct
your behavior patterns regarding nutrition and exercise.
So it is unreasonable to assume that you will change them overnight.
The only way to obtain long-term change is to start to slowly
alter the existing neural pathways that are directing your negative
behaviors. The Insulite PCOS System Nutrition and Exercise
Plans are designed to help you start altering the neural
networks that are the basis of negative lifestyle decisions. Contrary
to popular belief, changing lifestyle components like nutrition
and exercise is less about willpower and more about persistence.
Willpower will not alter neural patterns. But your change in behavioral
routine will make a difference!

You are not looking for perfection. It will take time to alter
the existing networks that are now directing your negative behavior
patterns. Our recommendation to you is to just keep at the program.
Whether you miss a day or a week, just keep coming back to the
program. Persistence is what will ultimately help alter your negative
behaviors. Eventually you will notice that your lifestyle changes
will become almost effortless because you will start to feel so
much better. Again, remember that persistence is the key!
Carbs: Tackling The Culprit!
Carbohydrates and the glucose they produce are the source of dietary
energy for the human body. You can't function properly for very long
without some carbohydrate intake. The trouble is that carbs are
addictive. If you've ever tried to give them up completely for
awhile, you'll know what we mean. Research shows that, contrary
to popular belief, it is not the fat in our diet that makes us
overweight but the amount of carbohydrates we eat.
The Insulite PCOS System Nutrition Plan focuses on carbs
as the main culprit in causing weight gain as a result of Insulin
Resistance. The Nutritional Plan advocates a high-protein, low-carbohydrate
diet, with lots of green vegetables and fruits.
We don't have an "induction phase" where you're deprived
of all carbs and are just eating protein and fat. We ask that you
lower your carbohydrate intake from where you are now and slowly
persevere in reducing your intake each week so it doesn't feel like such
a shock to your system. You will soon notice your old carb
cravings will subside and your weight will drop, helping to reverse
your symptoms of Insulin Resistance and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
Human genetic make-up is not designed to cope with the barrage of carbohydrates
we now consume via fast foods, pasta dinners, and the like.
From a cultural standpoint, these meals are a new source
of nourishment. Until farmers began cultivating grains such as
wheat and corn, our nutrition consisted mainly
of fruits, green leafy vegetables, and meat. Carbohydrates in the
form of grains were rare.
make-up simply can't adapt to the type of nutrition that the average person consumes
today, which is 70 percent carbohydrates. Until then, the only way to
ensure balanced insulin and glucose levels, which ensure good health
and ideal weight, is to reduce our carbohydrate intake.
The Insulite PCOS System Nutrition Plan is designed to reduce
carbohydrate cravings while addressing their addictive qualities.
Making Movement a Part of Your Day
The key to the Insulite PCOS System's Exercise Plan is also its gradual implementation. If you don't exercise now, or you exercise
very little, you have become accustomed to a sedentary lifestyle.
As we've said previously, on a scientific level this means
you have adapted pathways in your brain that make you feel comfortable
living without exercise. While these pathways, called neural networks,
might be telling you not to exercise, this sedentary course of inaction
is the worst thing you could do in your fight against weight gain,
Insulin Resistance, and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
Moderate exercise is a vital component.
Our Exercise Plan is designed to help you exchange your old, negative
lifestyle of little or no exercise with one that has moderate exercise
as a primary component. Once you make exercise a regular part
of your healthy new lifestyle, you are likely to find yourself becoming
more energetic and ambitious about new ways to keep fit.
If, however, you find you are not losing weight at first, don't
despair. Regular exercise can help you become fitter even if you
Neural networks that represent a non-exercise lifestyle are not
easily changed. It took you years to develop those neural pathways
that dictate your sedentary lifestyle. It will take some time to
alter them to the point where they support you.
The Insulite PCOS System Exercise Plan looks extremely
simple... and it is. But its goal is very scientific: namely, to
change the neural pathways that instruct you "not to move" so
that, instead, they reinforce movement as a primary part of your
Increase Your Metabolism
Exercise helps to increase the insulin sensitivity of your cells,
which allows you to use glucose more efficiently. As a result, it
can help reverse the symptoms of Insulin Resistance and PCOS
as well as enhance long-term weight-loss.
Exercise also plays an important role in reducing weight by lowering
insulin levels and creating calorie-burning muscle, which increases
your metabolic rate even while you are not exercising.
To succeed with the Insulite PCOS System, you will need
to exercise regularly-moderately, but regularly.
There are no gimmicks or tricks. The
requirements are to do it moderately and to do it gradually. Rapid weight loss is
not healthy. But if you would like more than gradual change, we
have also outlined an alternative program for you to follow. Success
is enhanced with persistence, consistency, and long-term adherence
to either approach.
