How Do I Stop Excessive Weight Gain?

How Do I Stop Excessive Weight Gain?

Dear Robin: “I have PCOS and struggle with weight gain. It’s been packing on rapidly for the past few years. How do I stop this? I am bloated as well and sometimes feel low energy level. I really need any advice I can get.” ~ KR

Dear KR: Weight gain is a symptom of inflammation. You’re body is in storing mode and is not able to use the sugar for fuel that you are consuming. So you have to change things up a bit to become a fat burner instead of a sugar burner.

When you focus on taking better care of yourself, all of your symptoms of PCOS begin to go away, including weight. Do not focus on weight loss, but instead focus on reducing inflammation.

Here are some next steps for you:

  1. Get your blood work (this link will provide the list) done. You can either do this through Insulite Health or you can take this list to your doctor. Optimal levels of these markers are very important so be sure to review with me when you have your numbers in.
  2. Add fiber to your diet – at least 30 grams daily. You can start slow so you don’t disrupt your digestion too much. This alone has a nice impact on hormone balance and blood sugar control.
  3. Remove the “enemy” from your pantry. That means any foods that are not serving you – sugar, prepackaged foods with ingredients you can’t pronounce, etc. This way you won’t be tempted to eat them.
  4. Drink 8 8-ounce glasses of water daily (make sure it’s chlorine and fluoride-free and not from a plastic water bottle) so you don’t get hungry because you’re dehydrated – yes, dehydration can look like hunger pangs.
  5. Walk for 15 minutes immediately following each meal.

This is a great place to start KR. You can learn more about the 5-Element System by clicking the link at the bottom of this email. This program is designed to reduce inflammation and improve hormone balance over time so the weight gain becomes a non-issue. Keep me posted on what you notice, OK? ~ Robin
