Over the holidays, many PCOS women who want to lose weight skip lunch because they’re think a big holiday dinner at 4 p.m. equals lunch and dinner.
But it doesn’t. In fact, you risk consuming more calories during dinner to compensate than if you’d had a small lunch like a salad beforehand.
Eating less the next day to make up for over-indulgence isn’t a good idea, either. Crash dieting makes the body revolt and burn fewer calories, thus making weight loss and better management of PCOS symptoms more difficult.
Remember to take brisk walks after meals to lose weight and build muscle. One pound of muscle from exercising burns 30 calories while a pound of fat only burns two calories.
