Besides trying to eat healthy, I can't lose my excess weight. Does anybody have tips on losing weight with PCOS?

      The most common barrier with losing weight with PCOS is insulin resistance. This means that you have too much insulin circling in your body, and if it isn't used up, it just turns to fat. If you can reduce the amount of spikes of insulin, this helps. Try to avoid snacking between meals, avoid sweeteners and sugary drinks, and consider intermittent fasting. If you're still having trouble, ask your doctor about metformin. It's a sugar reducing medicine that is particularly good for PCOS. Good luck 💕

      I also have this problem, losing weight with pcos is a challenge! I have been told that a low carb & high protein diet works well. Exercise including weights. Also gluten free and lactose free is supposed to help too, however I find this difficult to stick too. Swimming might be a good option too.

      Seeking advice on this as well. Been struggling for a few months now and I'm not sure what steps to take next.

Several suggestions for losing weight with PCOS include quitting sugar and oily foods, maintaining an 80% diet and 20% small indulgence balance, fasting, following a low sugar, high protein diet with light exercise for 60 minutes a day, and eating as much healthy food as desired but only a single serving size of less healthy stuff. Other tips include reducing carb intake, checking insulin resistance, increasing physical activity like walking, drinking lots of water, and trying low-intensity cardio, weight lifting, yoga. Some have found success with cutting out gluten, added sugar, and dairy, or using programs like Noom.
