Since being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome last December, I've really tried to step it up health wise. I deal with cystic acne and a few other things that relate to my elevated levels of testosterone and DHEA, but not obesity. Starting 4 months prior to my diagnosis, in my best efforts to 'detox' my body for my acne problem (not realizing the insulin factor of my syndrome), I started eating A LOT of fruit along with higher amounts of carby nuts in my diet, (with no actual exercise), and started trying to cut out meat. The result? Around 10 lbs of weight gain in since. Starting the beginning of this month, I decided to cut down on the fruit and nuts. My efforts have been consistent with the types of food I've been eating and have been exercising frequently, but I've noticed I've been eating heavier meals too frequently, so my weight hasn't budged. I need to make a declaration of my intentions to start intermittent fasting on tuesdays and thursdays every week to give my digestion a break and to start trying to get back in touch with my natural hunger and move along in my recovery.
