Half the battle when it comes to losing Polycystic Ovary Syndrome weight and enjoying better PCOS health and well-being is developing the right approach to what you want to achieve.
First of all, try to focus on living healthier before concentrating on PCOS weight loss. Learn to eat in a way that makes you feel well and gives you more energy. Get regular exercise, manage stress and try to think positively at all times. Tell yourself that you’re a success in so many other areas of your life, like being good at a job or raising a family, and weight loss is going to be no exception.
Focusing on your weight all the time can often lead to impatience and frustration, which may tempt you to adopt quick fixes. These desperate measures are more than likely to lead to failure. So start from a perfectly reasonable desire to improve your health and appearance, not from a feeling of low self-esteem and anger at a lack of will-power.
Find a healthy PCOS diet program that suits you, not someone else. Don’t be afraid to fail every now and again as you experiment with different eating habits and taste experiences. Explore new fruits, vegetables and foods high in omega-rich fatty acids such as salmon and walnuts.
Create a realistic image in your mind of how you want to look. Make gradual changes in your weight and they’ll soon add up. It doesn’t have be torture, either, if you allow yourself time for your body to adapt to less weight.
Persistence is the key. There may be setbacks along the way, like giving into a particularcraving. But don’t beat yourself up if that happens! You’re allowed to have some pleasure en route to your healthy new way of life. So have the occasional treat and find a way of exercising that you enjoy. How long is it since you last went swimming, for example?
A key factor in PCOS weight loss is the ability to reverse Insulin Resistance, an imbalance in blood sugar and insulin levels, which, if left unchecked, can lead to obesity. This latter condition has reached epidemic proportions in the U.S. and other Western countries via unhealthy diets and lack of regular exercise.
