A great way to shed weight or avoid adding extra pounds to better manage or even reverse the symptoms of your PCOS is to build muscle, which helps to burn fat. One of the fastest ways to achieve this is to lift weights three times a week, though be sure to take it slowly if you’re a beginner and seek advice from a strength trainer if your doctor has given you the go-ahead to try this kind of exercise.
If you already strength-train, trade exercises that isolate a single muscle, such as biceps curls, for multi-joint, multi-muscle moves like chest presses and squats. The more muscles you engage at once, the more calories you’ll burn.
Break up your meals. If you’re losing weight by cutting calories, eating five small meals instead of three large ones helps to keep metabolism high. Spreading calories throughout the day helps keep blood sugar levels even and controls the release of insulin, which, if unbalanced, can cause your body to store more calories as fat.
