Better control of weight can make a great difference when it comes to improved management of your PCOS symptoms. But you need to know that weight gain shifts with age … so plan accordingly.
Younger women tend to gain weight on their thighs and hips. But after menopause, weight gain often shifts to the midsection, increasing the chance of developing the cluster of risk factors for heart disease called metabolic syndrome (syndrome x).
An expanding waist measurement is now thought by many doctors to be a more accurate predictor of a heart attack than overall weight. Luckily, deep abdominal fat (the kind stored around internal organs) responds more quickly to regular exercise than other kinds of fat.
So you have two choices. Either work out a safe exercise program based on the advice of your doctor. Or, if you’re already experiencing weight loss success, be sure to stick with that regime.
