so recently I've been trying to lose weight.. but the only things that tend to work are not eating... which obviously isn't good.. and it seems like every time I try to start up a different way I lose motivation too quickly for anything to be effective.. I'm 5'3 and 200lbs.. anyone have any suggestions or anything that'll help...? I feel like PCOS may be affecting it too..

      Hi! I’m currently on a weight loss journey and what’s helping me is either intermittent fasting and/or calorie counting. So far I lost about 10 pounds. I just found this website that helps you see how much calories you should eat a day to maintain your weight, and how much to lose weight. It calculates it by knowing your height, weight, gender, and activity level. The website is: tdeecalculator.net 🌸Basically from what I learned, in order to lose weight, you should be in a calorie deficit so you should consume about 500 less calories than you usually do.

      With PCOS, what's helped me the most is doing low carb diets, eating lots of veggies and protein. Its slow progress, but I've lost 20 pounds so far. Talking to a dietitian can be really beneficial.

One suggestion from a person with PCOS is lifting weights, as it has been helpful for them in losing weight. They found that cardio didn't work well for them, but serious weight lifting at the gym made a difference. Another suggestion is to try low-intensity cardio, weight lifting, yoga, increasing water intake, and adopting a low sugar, low carb diet. Keep in mind that everyone's body is different, so it's essential to find what works best for you.
