She lost 125 lbs. with PCOS…

I've lost 125 pounds in one year. It was hard to imagine I could ever do this! Your website rocks, and so do u! You really helped a LOT! It was exceptionally hard for me, being i have a metabolic disease called PCOS.
I am insulin resistant, meaning i produce to much insulin at a cellular level, and everything i ate, even salad turned to sugar, which then of course turned to FAT! BUT JUST FOLLOW WHAT ADRIAN SAYS EXACTLY, AND YOU TOO WILL LOOSE THE WEIGHT! IM LIVING PROOF!Lisa Liebergott-Council - Read her full story here Created by Adrian Bryant

I had problems ttc my 2nd child at age 21, my doctor didn't diagnose me with pcos but he put me on chlomid to help ovulate. I finally got pregnant after a year of trying, but my symptoms started up again with irregular periods and weight gain even with dieting and exercise at least 5 times a day. I do light weights and walk at a fast pace and my calorie intake is pretty low, I don't know the exacts. My ob just diagnosed me with pcos yesterday, I am now 24, 5'8" 190lbs. My doctor just prescribed me low dose birth control and told me to continue my diet and exercise, but he wasn't concerned with my weight, only with my cycle. Is there anything else I can do to help me lose weight, or do you think this birth control combined with what I'm already doing will help?

how long have you been on your current plan? You may get results doing what you are doing but if not I definitely have some things to boost weight loss

Karlee, what the doctor has done is prescribed band aid to you issue. I have suffer with PCOS and that is was the however i have found herb which can help get your cycle back naturally then allow you to lose the weight as you not fighting against your body. It called agnus castus and found in most health store or on-line. This can only be taken for 18 month and no longer however this has worked for me. I hope this helps

Hi Adrian, after 7 years of trying to figure out the reason I've gained over 100 lbs I finally got a diagnosis, PCOS this past March. I'm 25 years old and I've been ttc since last December. I've been off of birth control since last october when i fell ill with my blood pressure being elevated, and c- reactive protein level being elevated. I've had abnormal bleeding from December until March. I started using vitex which stopped the bleeding, my gyn then sent me for blood work up and finally gave me a diagnosis. She told me to continue my vitex for a month to see if my period would return, but nothing. And she gave me the option of starting Metformin if I wanted to. I've gained 30lbs since January, it's been depressing since I found myself trying to eat as healthy as I could. I decided to start metformin in hopes it will help with my weight loss. For 2 months since using metformin my period returned with a 23 day cycle, but this month I havent had it, only pains in my pelvis area. I have yet to lose any weight, I've been exercising and eating healthy for the past month and only loss 3 lbs. I've taken dairy products and high fat foods out of my diet. Do you have any recommendations for me? Thanks in advance.

#1. check your total calorie intake

#2. ask your doctor if any of the meds cause weight gain (water weight gain)

#3. what about exercise

I am a 26yr old with pcos non-IR and no cysts. I also suffer from severe asthmatic bronchitis to the point I need and inhaler constantly on me, chronic back pain and am overweight. After my son was born I went from 286 to 309 in just a few months. It took me 8 months to get down to 286 with tue help of walking metformin and vitex. I have been inable to get past this point and it has been nearly 2 years. My husband and I have been ttcing for 3 years with 3 recebt losses. I have stopped metformin and im only on vitex and ha e taken back up walking again. Anything else you can suggest that will help wspecially with my limitations.

are you limited in what you can do workout wise?

August 09, 2015

Sarah l

Some what. For example I did daily burn 15 and after 5 mins it was way too much for me. Lungs were burning. A 20 min min to 2 hour brisk walk is about the only thing that hasnt made me have any issues but I am unsure if just doing that is helping anymore. I eat lean meats, fruits and veggies and whole grains and walk. I have recently did a run. It only started burning after maybe 100-500 feet. Which is a great distance with my AB.

Swimming and Racquetball Burn a lot of calories in less time than most exercises. I do one of these 1 1/2 hours per day 5 to 7 days per week and only eat Meat, Vegetables and throw in some sugar free pudding with skim milk if I have the need for something sweet. I take 1 day off once every 2 weeks to cheat. I also take Inositol Powder, Iodine, B12, and B-Complex supplements and drink at least 72 oz of water per day. I also drink Black Tea with Stevia. Once I lose all of my weight I will then start slowly adding 100% whole wheat/grains in place of the bad carbs, I will never add the bad carbs back and I will continue the exercise for the rest of my days to keep it off. It seems to be working pretty well I've went down around 25-30 lbs.

But since i had twins nearly a couple years ago my weight is at its highest and making me very unhappy specially since ive got tht sort of flap of extra fat from having my children. I have jus restartd on metformin to try get my insulin resistant lower as its near impossible to shift the weight.

I am 32 year old, 5"1,
128 lbs diagnosed with PCOS few years ago. I have lost 20 lbs over the past few years. My endocrinologist would want me to lose another 7 to 10 lbs and I have tried everything from yoga to Jillian Micheals DVD's to 6 months of
Crossfit and nothing has helped me shed an ounce. I am a vegetarian and rely on tofu eggs dairy for protein. Currently I am not following any diet or workout programme other than walking and some jogging. I hardly eat junk food or drink soda or refined flour products - maybe once a month. I would really appreciate some input.

I am 23 and I was recently diagnosed with PCOD. I was healthy as a child but started gaining 10-15 kgs per year soon as my periods started at age 11. In my teenage years I have used many techniques to lose weight like diet, treadmill, yoga, weight loss pills etc. Every time I lose some weight but as soon as I stop, I gain it all back and much more. I now weigh around 100 kgs and want to lose weight. I have also had surgery for fibroidenoma at age 17 and again got lumps in both my breasts which scares me coz I don't want to have another surgery. Please tell me what weight loss exercises should I do that will not cause me to gain all the weight to come back if I stop doing it.

I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2008. I had always had issues with my period since I first got it at 13. I am now 37. I was 30 years old when I started taking fertility drugs. I am 5'8" and I was 194 lbs and for my build I was ok at that weight. Not thrilled but ok. In 2/2009 after fertility drugs including shots in my stomach daily and a 35 lb weight gain due to the drugs. I was pregnant after being inseminated. Thrilled beyond belief. I did have a horrible pregnancy due to the hormone issues I was very very sick. Ended up in the hospital 2 times in my 1st trimester I could not keep anything down, then I ended up with PUPPS my 3rd trimester and not to mention a separation from my then husband. I welcomed a beautiful baby girl on 10/29/2009. Easiest labor. No drugs and all. However when I delivered I was 257 lbs. I lost 41 lbs by 1/2010. But that had to do with breastfeeding. I am now 37 and I am at 251, I am not worried about more children I had my tubes tied 2/2014. My boyfriend and I do not want more, he has 1 also. He also does not want me to have to go through any of that again. My biggest issue is that I work out for the last 4 months 45 mins a day and I have only lost 4 lbs, I eat right (I do have 1 cheat day usually Saturdays where we go to dinner and get desert) I gave up pop. I did hear that if you drink red wine 1 glass at least 3 times a week that it will help with your insulin resistance. So as I am not a drinker I am trying that, trust me it is hard. I do not like to drink. But maybe that can help some of you. I have also been trying to drink infused water. I bought a water bottle, you add fruit to it. I HATE plan water. So that has been helping with me getting my water in.
