Do you feel that you’ve come to a full stop in your valiant efforts to enjoy better Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome health by losing weight? Don’t despair if you do, because you’re not alone.
Sooner or later, most people with PCOS experience the feeling that, while they’ve made good progress in changing their lifestyle for the better, they suddenly just can’t seem to take off any more weight.
This plateau is typically reached because weight loss involves muscle loss as well as fat loss. Muscle mass helps to fuel your metabolism, which, in turn, controls weight loss.
So the way to keep losing weight is to slowly add muscle strength, especially via working out with light weights. It’s great for toning the body. And by preserving and gradually increasing muscle mass, you’ll kick start your old weight loss habit with new-found energy for exercise.
Remember, of course, to stick to your balanced, low-carbohydrate diet to help keep off the pounds you’ve already shed.
Start your strength/resistance training regime gradually and consult your doctor first before beginning a strenuous new program. If you haven’t any spare cash for a personal trainer right now, get advice on the right regime for you personally by investing in a strength-training video or watching Fit TV, which airs a wide variety of workouts.
Don’t neglect your other activities, like walking, hiking and swimming. Always be on the lookout for new forms of exercise, such as biking and tennis, to vary your routine and prevent your healthy lifestyle from becoming stale.
Regular exercise when combined with a balanced, nutritious diet can help reverse an underlying cause of obesity, namely the imbalance of blood glucose and insulin called Insulin Resistance. By reversing Insulin Resistance, you can facilitate weight loss.
