I’m cutting my dose of Metformin in half. I woke up this morning to 112 over 65 blood pressure, 85 pulse and 67 fasting blood glucose. I’ve been shaky all day and not feeling well in general. I hate meds!

this makes me so upset. i hate PCOS and i want it to go away. i want to be able to have babies when im older :( fuck fuck fuck.
Not just junk food but foods high in sugars and starches, which is mainly what the average US citizen can afford. Which would explain why there’s been a sharp increase in cases. No one believes me when I tell them that I never want to have kids. Not just because of my disorder but it does play a part of it. Odds are if its a girl she’ll have the same health issues I do, if not worse, and mine are horrible enough (this has been going on in my mothers side for that last 4 generations and progressively getting worse). I’d most likely become a control freak to make sure the disorder never progressed to my stage only to mess her up in other ways.
*Updating because I now have more then 20 minutes and have been able to re-read the graphic. I think a few things need to be fixed on it. 1st you either have PCOS or you don’t and it’s incurable. No magical combination of foods will prevent it or make it go away, and because women with PCOS tend to have naturally high insulin levels poor nutrition leads to a high risk of obesity. 2nd it’s ‘excess body and facial hair growth’. It’s a common symptom for the hair on top of your head to thin. This should have been specified.
Whomever is writing these is making a lot of mistakes. I’ve run across quite a few with half truths and out right misinformation.
joyandhealthiness asked: I have PCOS, and I was just wondering how the no starch no sugar thing is going for you?? The thought of it is pretty terrifying to me lmao.
And, some of our stats are similar =D
I just checked your site, we do! I’ve been thinking of raising my UGW back up to 160 just because of my frame size and how easily I put on muscle.
Okay, about your question. Current it’s the only way I’ve ever been able to lose a large amount of weight and the best way to control cravings. I seem to have a lot of food sensitivities and low carb cuts out all of them. If that’s not reason enough for me to stick to it, it’s the healthiest diet for me. It’s lowered my insulin and cholesterol levels from moderately high (which occurred doing a low fat/low calorie diet) down into the healthy range and I also how predictable monthly cycles now. I’ve met girls who are doing amazing on low-fat, clean eating, or vegan lifestyles but they didn’t work for me. Nothing works for everyone. If you decide to try it definitely pick a diet, read up on it and give it 14 days to work. Just know that the worst part about this diet is watching what everyone else around you will be eating. Some days it can be really hard to stick to. I won’t lie and say I’ve been faithful to the plan for years, I do tend to slip, and I have eaten things I shouldn’t have but it hasn’t been the end of the world and I’m still sticking with it because it really does work best for me.
Also if you try it and decide it’s not working for you, and it’s been over a month, build back up to the average diet slowly. Once you remove sugar from your blood stream your body starts converting protein and fat into glucose and tends to forget what to do with sugar. That’s why people who suddenly go off a low carb diet put weight back on so fast. If you would like to see my current plan I can scan in the 4 pages of the starter guide. Sorry about the novel but I wanted to make sure I answered any questions you might have.

I doubt that last thing anyone wants to hear from me is another rant but it needs to come out. So to spare the people who just want to see fitspo, words of encouragement and diet ideas I’ll tuck the following behind a post cut.

I started the herb Saw Palmetto a few days ago. The herbalist said that it’s suppose to help with some of the symptoms for PCSO and at $8 a bottle it beats anything the doctors could prescribe. I’m currently taking 4 550mg doses a day and I should have enough to make it through the end of the month. If I don’t see any changes in the oncoming weeks I might get a 2nd bottle just to make sure I gave it a fair chance. Any assistance is welcomed at this point.
