Hello, my name Shalini. Doctor ordered tests and now he says that I am showing signs of PCOS. He said that it will affect my life if I don't get treated. But he says I will surely gain weight and it is going to be hard to maintain my figure. I work in an industry where looks matter so how to lose weight with PCOS?

PCOS is a condition that requires careful moderation of what you put in your body. Generally, PCOS patients need to avoid foods that are already considered unhealthy. Some of them include: • Fried foods, like fast food • Refined carbohydrates, including mass-produced white bread and pastries • Beverages loaded with sugar, like energy drinks and sodas • Meats that have been factory processed, including luncheon meats, sausages, and hot dogs • Excess red meat, such as pork, hamburgers, and steaks • Solid fats, such as lard, shortening, and margarine Eliminating these from your diet will yield positive results in your weight loss journey and help control PCOS symptoms more effectively.
