I used to have a high metabolism and now I can't lose weight no matter how clean I eat or how much I exercise. does anyone have any success with PCOS weightloss?

      my mother was very very obese and ended up going through a procedure called gastric bypass to help her lose weight. it essentially closes off the majority of the stomach so that it holds less food, so by nature you’ll eat less. she cut all breads and pasta from her diet and walks over 6 miles daily. it’s been about 15 months since her surgery and she’s lost well over 100 pounds. dropped probably 9 pant sizes. that’s what worked for her. the surgery is really only for if you need a drastic change.

      honestly the only thing that made a noticeable change for me was completely cutting out sugar and carbs+ gallon of water daily. so strict but it was worth it for me at the time

      I have Hypothyroidism and PCOS so losing weight is extremely hard but gaining it is horribly fast. My OB prescribed me Metformin which is used for diabetes and also for PCOS. It helps with weightloss as well. I lost a good few pounds when I first started. I hope this helps.

      In my experience, most PCOS professionals are more concerned with us maintaining a steady weight rather than rapidly gaining/losing. Unfortunately, a lot of undereducated “professionals” use this as an excuse to fatshame and whatnot. Something that has helped me a lot is Metformin. Metformin helps with the insulin resistance that comes with PCOS in most cases, making it easier to feel more balanced at least.
