Hello,
I have been diagnosed PCOS 4 years back. I use to get my periods 2 or 4 months once. I was taking English medicine for more than a year as the doctor was saying that it will be cured only if I take for more than 6 months or 1 year. But I didn't see any improvement.I stopped taking 1medicine.then my periods stopped completely and my weight increased nearly 6 kgs. Then I started taking ayurvedic medicine for nearly 2 years. I found little improvement. But it is almost 4 years with my treatment, didn't find any good sign of curing it. Still not getting periods at all. Now I lost hope in both medicines. Want to mention, now I am taking somewhat proper diet and exercise which both are very difficult to follow. Can you please help me to get rid off this? This giving mental pressure and I feel very frustrated with this.

Thank you

Ok. So I have PCOS and IR and am on 2000 mg Metformin. I gained about 70 pounds in under 6 months. I workout 5 days a week, count calories ( I Try to stay at about 1200) I try and eat good most of the time. I can't lose any weight. I don't know what to do anymore. I maintain my weight but my belly just keeps getting bigger. I am so done with this! Does any one know of anything else I can do? I will try just about anything.

Hi Adrian,

8 months back i am diagnosed with PCOS.I am currently 85kg.Since teenage,I have always been very active and took up physical exercise, workouts but my weight used to either be constant or increase. Now i realize it was for because of PCOS. I have started doing insanity by T Shaun and have Metformin 850 mg as prescribed by my doctor, along with this i have largely reduced my carbohydrates and sugar intake.
As of now i have not seen any change in my weight and if i stopped my workout even for 3 days due to some reason i feel as if i am putting the fats back. It is very discouraging when i do workouts religiously and check on my diet to loose weight but nothing works at all. please let me know what should i do to reduce my weight and have control on my PCOS.

"No one wants to look fat and everyone crave for a slim body, but few people like us are not lucky enough to have it despite of the weight loss struggle.'
Please reach me at my email ID. Your response would highly be accepted and appreciated.

I take 2000 mg of metformin, I eat 1700 calories per day, burn 2300-3000 calories per day....I have a trainer and I do classes like boot camp, body combat and so forth. For the past 2 months at the most, my weight has been stuck at 229-230. I am getting very frustrated....any suggestions?

I've been taking 500mg of Metformin since I was 15 years old (I'm 25 now) and I've doing ok, I lost weight (I also started taking Eutirox and have been going to the endocrinologist regularly). I also started running two years ago, and then I started to really run more frequently and harder, last May (I'm training to run 21K).
At the same time, someone told me the dose of Metformin I've been taking was very low, and that it shouldn't even be making a difference. And stupid me, I stopped taking it.

Now, I've gained like 4 kg in the last few months, even when I haven't been eating more and I have been excercising a lot. I've lost body fat %, but still, I feel fatter, I've mainly gained belly fat...I went back to the Metformin a week ago...how long do you think it will take for my body to go back to how it was, functioning normally and losing weight when I excercise and diet?

Thanks!

Flavia

Hi Chelsie,

I have PCOS and insuline resistance. I fimly believe that once you start metformin it is easier to control the arvings and start a serious diet to lose weight. Don't give up on yourself. You are young and your body will respond quickly. I follow a low glicemic diet and despite having to adapt to a new life style, is is not impossible to follow. Talk to a doctor and start metformin and Low glicemic diet and you will se some results.
good luck !

Hi Adrian,

Hope you're well. Thanks for keeping this website up, you are helping more people everyday.

Anyways, I am just preparing you. This is going to be long, but I just want to give you as many details as I can. I am female, 24 years old and I weigh now 94kgs(I was 97kgs about 2 week ago).

I found out last year 2012 that I am Insulin Resistant, I went to a doctor and they told me to go to a nutritionist, she told me what foods I can and cannot eat, to sum it up, I cannot have any carbs(even potatoes etc) and NO sugar(not even honey, not even bananas or grapes). I know you have listed you can have potatoes and cassava, but for some reason, I did try what you said for a while and it didn't work for me.

At the start of the year 2013 I did go on a very strict diet of what my nutritionist told me, no carbs, no sugar. I exercised in the morning with tae bo for at least 40 min and lifted weights here and there and I lost about 9kgs in about a month. Soon after, I got lazy and stopped. I put half the weight back on by June 2013, and I started getting sad. I was then invited to a wedding and I had 3 weeks to try and loose as much weight as possible, so I followed the 20 pounds in 3-4 weeks. I was again, very strict. Only sleeping 7-8 hours a night, exercising twice a day with taebo and I was also taking RoxyLean from BPI Sports. With that I lost about 4-5 kgs in a week, but then my motivation decreased and I caught a cold so I stopped and started eating a lot of junk again.

About 2 weeks ago, I realised I put on weight and became 97kgs. This time, something just clicked inside my heart and I realised, I keep going around in this bloody circle so I decided to stop doing this and change my life.

I went back on the roxy lean and I am bit more flexible. I still slept 8 hours, I have exercised everyday with 45mins of taebo and every 2-3 days I exercise twice a day with 50 min of taebo. But when I check the scales, in the last 2 weeks I have only lost 3 kgs (I know that is a big deal) but compared to before when it took me only a week to loose approx 5 kgs and now 3 kgs in 2 weeks, I am not sure what's happening. The only thing I can thing of is these differences from the last time I lost the 5 kgs in a week.

1. I eat quinoa atleast once everyday.

2. I have more avocado

3. I eat half a banana with the RoxyLean(so I don't feel dizzy and get nauseous- (side effects)

4. Sometimes I exercise twice(maybe the workouts aren't hard for me anymore even though I do it, I do get tired and sweat like crazy)

5. My eating pattern is not strict to a time, I calculate it every 3-4 hours just depending on how late I wake up(latest I wake up in 9:30, but I usually wake up at 8am and then do my workout, so by the time I finish is around 9-9:30am)

6. For my dessert, I have water melon.

And that's all I can think of, could it be I am putting on more muscle? What do you think?

Thanks so much, and sorry for blabbing on.

September 22, 2013

SH

Sorry I forgot to add I have protein shake with water 2-3 times a day also.

September 22, 2013

Adrian Bryant

thanks for all the info. the more the better but one crucial thing you forgot to add was...

how many total calories you ate daily. your workout program seems okay

September 23, 2013

SH

Well I feel stupid now,

To be honest, I don't count calories. How much should I be eating?

You said the exercise is okay? Should I improve? do more? and is so, what should I be doing more?

First of all thank you sincerely for this information. I suffered with severe PCOS since puberty and I wasn't properly diagnosed until my late 20's. Then in my late 30's I was also diagnosed with Endometriosis. This also caused excessive weight gain. Finally I was put on Metformin. Then I was also put on Lupron to try and control the endometriosis. I gained 15lbs in a month. It was horrible. I also have excessive facial hair. I gained 7lbs in a year. I am now embarking on a clean eating diet. I currently don't have health insurance so I can't see a nutritionist. My question what workout is the most effective for fat loss? Since I've had four surgeries I have to be careful. I am currently 230, at 5'7. My goal is to be 130lbs. I am highly interested in developing muscle and acquiring a fitness model look. I am huge fans of Chady Dunmore, Ingrid Romero, and Vanessa Tib. How fast can I lose this weight and what is the best way? I am dedicated and already have started boxing at home with videos from you tube. What regimen will give me the best weightloss.. I am good with diet, I eat mostly baked, grilled chicken and baked/roast fish. Thanks for the feedback in advance

follow these workout rules to lose up to 4 pounds a week

Leisa

Hi Adrian, thankyou for this great info. I'm female, 25, 70kg, 170 cm tall and just been diagnosed with insulin resistance. I've been unable to lose weight my whole life even though I eat well and exercise daily. Doctor finally tested insulin and has now put me on metmorfin.

I don't know how to eat now?! Are oats for breakfast ok? There's so much confusion on the Internet about totally illuminating carbs from the diet of someone with insulin resistance.

Thankyou!

August 30, 2013

Adrian Bryant

I think the problem is TOO MANY carbs but if you go on ONE of my diets or any diet you will basically eat less meaning less total carbs so yes...

you can have carbs IF on a diet where you are eating less but to be safe I would use this diet and make carbs no more than 40% of your diet

hi,

I am 24 years old I have PCOS. I am petite (5'2, 135 pounds) what do you recommend as a good workout plan and diet if I want to tone & maintain my weight but also keep my insulin levels down.

Hi Adrian , I am 50 year old and I am insulin resistance and want to lose weight .I am about 50 pounds over weight and I have a bad back I go to the chiropractor about once a week because I also have anxiety disorder and panic disorder and causes my muscle to tense up at any stress I put on my body. I use to jog 6 mile a week about 10 years ago. Please tell how to start out again ,I want jog and weight train like I have before and maybe I can lose this 50 pounds. Can you help me PLEASE

August 08, 2013

Carolyn

Hi Adrian,

I come to your site because I also have PCOS and I have been active most of my life, but I am now finding that low-impact exercises work better for me instead of really intense, long work outs. Now, I've had the same routine for quite some time and I need to shake things up. I've lost 50 lbs a few years ago and I've been quite content with my weight and physique until now. I want to lose 30 lbs in 90 days. As always, I am on a low-carb diet, but now I am tightening that up some more. I am looking into the interval workouts as you mentioned. What do you think of this plan?

www.fitnessmagazine.com

August 02, 2013

Adrian Bryant

oh yes, that plan is great to start with but just remember to make it a little bit tougher each time you do it

August 02, 2013

Carolyn

Thanks a bunch! I think I can play with the speed and incline levels.

August 02, 2013

Carolyn

That work out you approved, it was a challenge! Jeshus! I almost stopped at the 30 minute mark, but I told myself, "Carolyn, c'mon, be a G about this!" So I stuck it out for the full 45 minutes. Can I stick to this for 2-3 weeks until my body stops crying?

August 03, 2013

Adrian Bryant

of course but try to do a little bit more each time even if it means you doing it for 31 minutes or going a tad bit faster

August 04, 2013

LB

Hi Adrian,

I was diagnosed with PCOS after years of dealing womanly issues and not understanding what the real problem was. So after being diagnosed I was not given any guidance as to what in the world I am suppose to do to get this thing on track. I have been heavy all my life. I am 350+ pounds now. I have been working to try to lose weight, but again I don't know what I am doing at all. I even thought about seeking a nutritionist to help get me on track. I have read some books but they give only vague information regarding what I should eat and how I should workout. So in an effort to just jump in and get the ball rolling, I have been planning my meals for the last 3 weeks and I have done some walking. Not nearly enough walking but I figured that I have to start somewhere. So with the exception of this week, I was eating about 1200 to 1300 calories. This week got discouraging because I was seemingly gaining back the little weight that I did lose. I don't know what I did wrong. There were times, however, when I did waiver a little bit and I would have a little something that I should have had. I like what I like, but I want to be so much healthier than I am right now. Do you have any suggestions as to where I start with where I am right now? I don't have a clue as to what I am doing with this whole weight loss thing. I just know that I am ready to tackle this so that I can feel better and look better.

Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a bunch!!

outside of eating 1200 calories (which is a good start) are you exercising any at all and if not... start here

Trisha

Hi Adrian,
I am 29 and recently diagnosed with pcos and insulin resistance. I did the south beach diet and lost a decent amount of weight in a short time. But eventually I gained it all back. Then more recently I switched to a vegetarian plant based diet. I've cut virtually all sugar, starch, and processed foods from my diet. I've also been exercising about 5 times a week. However, the weight isn't coming off like it should be with the new lifestyle I've been living for the last 4 months. All the books and menu plans I have read include meat as a main source of protein. Can you suggest an insulin resistance vegetarian meal plan that can compliment this new change and really get the fat burning engaged. Thanks you.

July 14, 2013

Adrian Bryant

Hello,
I too am suffering from insulin resistance and PCOD. I do 1 hr yoga and 25-30 mins jogging every day.

I am working on my diet as well, but all these still have not helped me loose even a single kg.

Currently I take Vitamin D tabs, earlier I was on Vitamin B and Omega 3,6,9 supplements.

But nothing seems to be working out.
Can you please help. Its really frustrating to put in so much of an effort and still no weight loss.

Hello I have pcos & I was wondering how many grams of carbs should I eat a per day & at each meal ? Im going on a 1500 calorie diet

June 19, 2013

Adrian Bryant

Just make carbs no more than 50% of your diet which for you will be 190 grams or less per day

June 20, 2013

Jessica

Hey Adrian,

I was finding it impossible to lose weight by eating low carb alone, in fact my weight was still rapidly increasing. As a result, I have cut my calories to 1200 MAX a day (I know this isn't healthy but I've been too frustrated to even risk eating more). I also don't eat dairy, any refined sugars, or gluten- my weight isn't horrible but I can't lose 1 freaking pound to save my life. I am 5 ft 5 and 135 pounds. Is this the best I can do given the nature of PCOS? Shouldn't I be losing weight only eating on average 950 calories a day? I feel like I should be a stick - but the only noticeable change for me has been dizziness. I also do an hour of cardio 2 times a week- mainly running on the treadmill, but have cut back recently since I've been experiencing palpitations. I know this is unhealthy but am so very worried that if this is my weight eating this little, what is going to happen when I eat more? Is there any way I can begin to increase my calories, and avoid my body putting it all to fat out of starvation mode? Am I being too impatient about my weight loss progress? I am also currently on metformin, bcp, and take cinnamon and apple cider vinegar before each meal.

please please please help me!

June 13, 2013

Adrian Bryant

how are you tracking your calories and try this workout instead

Hi Adrian,
I am Hypothyroid, have PCOS, and Insulin Resistance. I have been working out steadily for a year now and I exercise for two hours a week at the gym; 60% resistance/ 40% cardio per my doctor’s advice. I am finally in the normal range for my thyroid, but I am absorbing my medication a little fast and have thus been told to cut my medication in half to take at two separate intervals throughout the day, which I am doing. I am also taking Metformin. My weight has been stable at 205 lbs. and I normally eat around 1700 calories a day. I sometimes eat junk, but for the most part I try to keep it under 125 carbs daily. I am taking the following vitamins: multi, calcium d+k, vitamin C, magnesium, super b-complex, and Iron. I am not losing any weight. Is there something I’m missing? Why am I not losing any weight? What could I do to combat this?
Thank you!

Cardio workout includes 30-45 minutes on the elliptical or stationary bike. Sometimes, I'll take a class like Zumba too. Occasionally, I'll go for a jog. I do feel that I look better and my clothes seem to fit better, but I still have a lot of weight on my frame. Before I had my son, I was never over 170 lbs. I've been stuck slightly over 200 lbs. for four years now. I think some of it was the due to my meds being off, but now that everything is normal, I'm wondering why the weight is not dropping off like it should. Any ideas?

okay keep doing what you are doing but with a few slight changes...

eat a range of 1200-to-1800 calories per day and keep a food journal according to this diet and as for your workout let's ramp it up a bit by doing this workout here

Also for the workout let's focus less on the weights and more on the cardio/intervals with the plan Igave you. you can still do weights but you really should not focus more on weights than cardio/intervals

Summer

Hi my name is Summer and I have been struggling with PCOS and Insulin resistance all my life...most importantly my weight now more than ever. I have met with dietitians and done everything they said to the T and lost nothing. I am 5'4" and 215 pounds but I don't look it. My stomach isn't hugely round and my size is only a 13. But the number looms over my head and I'm ready to give up. I've tried supplements and all different diets and exercise routines... My options are so slim now and I'm not finding anything that works.

I've suffered with pcos for around 12 years now I was put on a contraceptive injection which made me put on 4 stone in 6 months and since then I have never been able to lose the weight, how do I know if I am insulin resistant? I exercise every day and have done every diet in the book but I don't even lose a pound the only way I lose a little weight is by literally starving myself! If I don't eat for a while I get shakey and feel really ill could that be down to the insulin? What do you recommend I do because I have given up hope I've even been on diet pills from te doctor which don't help should I ask for metaformin? And if I'm not insulin resistant will it harm me?

it wouldn't hurt to ask your doctor for meta. but during these diets did you track your calories?

Hi Adrian,

I have PCOS. I made a lifestyle change and began eating healthier. I limited eating rice, bread, pasta and fried foods and exercised (mostly cardio) 5 days a week for 30 minutes to an hour or more on some days. Within 5 months time I lost 44 pounds but the weight lost was mostly from my lower body. At this point I really do not want my lower body to get any skinnier. I only want my arms to get smaller. I need help in losing the flabby arms. I am afraid to do cardio fearing that my legs and butt will become even smaller. My belly is small but not as small as I would like it to be; I want to tone it up and have abs. What type of diet and routine should I be doing to work on slimming my last bit of stubborn upper body fat?

#1 - what is your current weight and height

#2 - to lose more flab and fat you simply need to keep doing what you're doing

#3 - you cannot pick and choose where you lose weight from as you lose fat all over in different places at different times when you lose weight.

#4 - use this for flabby arms

#5 - see this for butt

I have the opposite problem. I have also been eating better, working out 5 days a week for the last 5 months (45 minutes - almost 2 hours) at a time. I am doing cardio and weights but cannot shake my lower half of my body. Please Help.

Sorry,forgot last question.

Are there any exercises that will help to lift breast ?

April 09, 2013

Hello Adrian,
I'm Type II Diabetic and as you may well know there are some challenges to building lean muscle in diabetics.I've got a challenge particularly in my lower body
(buttocks,inner thighs,and quads ) where I am wasting due to lack of exercise and out of control blood sugars.I am now on Metformin.
I'd like to know if there is anyway to reverse saggy skin?

Is there anyway to build muscle,lose weight and create curves at the same time?

I know that if I lose weight without strength training that my
problem will worsen.

Please,help.

Hi. I have been losing weight since August 2012 (almost 5 months now). I started out at 314 lbs. and I am now down to 272 lbs. as of this week with just not overeating alone, cutting out most junk foods, and increasing the amount of water I drink to over 3 liters a day. I tried Metformin on my own to treat my PCOS, but my ob/gyn put me on Clomid instead (I just finished my last cycle today!). I am trying to make small, manageable changes to my lifestyle because I have found making drastic ones just spells failure for me.

I am 5'7" and 33 years old and according to my electronic scale, have 51.1% body fat (down from 56.4% when I started my current plan). My normal weight was 150 lbs. when I was in my late teens/early 20s, which I would love to get back to, but then I developed PCOS when I was 23 and also began stress eating (my last break-up caused me to gain almost 30 lbs.). Now that my plan has become more or less routine, I am ready to add an extra element - body shaping, especially my abs and obliques where most of the fat is.

I joke that I have more rolls than a German bakery, but it's true... I've got the rolls, the wings, the handles, the pooch, the side boobs, the flaps, and the muffin. I recently purchased an ab-roller (the white metal frame with a head rest), but don't really know how to get started with it.

Can you give me some suggestions?

Also, I live in Taiwan so I don't have the same access to some resources as I would in the US.
