I have PCOS & anemia and because of them I don't follow a mainstream diet. Some of my posts include controversial information and topics. If this bothers you then please don't follow me.
*I'm currently not weighing in. After a 2-month plateau I switched to measurements.
The lovely owner of the local health food store (who happens to have PSOD), has informed me that there’s apparently a newish supplement called Raspberry Ketone that her doctor is encouraging patients with PCOS to try. She said it’s been featured in a few places but I can’t recall hearing about it before. It’s suppose to help with balancing insulin, increases your energy and helps the body break down stored fat. I hate so called miracle pills but it’s rare to hear of one getting a doctor’s endorsement. They’re pricey but I want to splurge and pick up a bottle. I figure if it works it’ll be worth the price, if not lesson learned. You’re suppose to see results within 2 weeks on 100mg-200mg per day. When I buy it (probably after i buy a new computer) I’ll document it just like I did with the other supplements. I don’t have high hopes but it would be nice if this one actually works for me. I’m still keeping thorough records of my progress with Jillian Michaels’ program so can compare it to what I’ve done so far with diet and exorcise alone.@1 year ago with 5 notes
