New - supplement advise pls

Postby Poppyted-37 » Tue Jan 03, 2017 10:08 pm

Hello ladies

I'm new and having a bit of a rubbish time lately. I've had pics for many years and suffered with fertility issues etc... we have 3 gorgeous kids via Ivf.

Other than excessive hair and tummy fat I've not had any other physical symptoms until now. I'm losing my hair at a ridiculous rate and have put 1.5 stone on in 12 months.

I do need to overhaul my diet and up my exercise but can anyone PLEASE recommend any supplements I should be taking? I am considering going to a pcos nutritionist as well. My confidence is at an all time low and I just need some help with where to start.

Thanks in advance

Sadly a lot of nutritionists are not really pcos aware - generally diet wise stick to the low GI, sadly the fatter you are the worse the symptoms can become as well. I quite like the 5:2 diet as once I got my head around it it is really easy.

I am on the combined pill which does make losing weight easier and keeps the pcos symptoms at bay. If you ate the RDA you would still put on 2lb a month, so over a stone a year just by eating the same as a non pcos lady so we do need to eat considerably less just to maintain our weight as we are so efficient at storing.
