As we reported yesterday, excess fat around the abs can actually turn the body’s defense system against an overweight person, leading to heart disease – a condition closely linked to PCOS.
Scientists have known for some time that excess body fat, particularly abdominal fat, triggers the production of so-called “pro-inflammatory” immune cells, which circulate in the blood and promote heart-damaging inflammation.
In addition, other inflammatory immune cells, known as macrophages, are also turned on within fat tissue.
But research showed that a loss of about 13 pounds in obese people, no matter their individual weight, was enough to bring the levels of pro-inflammatory cells down to that found in lean people. Achieve that weight loss -and keep it off – via a balanced, nutritious diet and regular exercise … and you’re also likely to see a big improvement in your PCOS health.
