Diet is one of the biggest components when it comes to treating PCOS. Some of the most frequently asked questions I receive on a daily basis are, what foods are best for PCOS weight loss? what should I eat to cure PCOS? is there a best diet for PCOS?

To lose weight with PCOS, you have to address the root cause. There are different parts to the body. Focusing on 'fixing' one part won't address the whole problem.

With an over abundance of information around PCOS and diet it can be difficult to know what will help. In todays episode, I identify 9 of the most common PCOS diet mistakes. These are mistakes we have all made at some point on our PCOS journey. If you haven't made them yet, then I hope through listening to the episode and outlining these diet mistakes that I can prevent you from making them.

These diet mistakes are not supporting the body by addressing the root cause. They are just pushing them body more into a hormonally wrecked and metabolically suppressed state.

How do you REALLY boost your metabolism?

Weight gain and difficulty losing weight is a common PCOS symptom. Researchers found a lower Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is common in PCOS. Many are often led to believe that if their metabolism is slow, they have to live with it and that there is nothing they can do. Or they are told to do all the things that keep them in that low metabolic state.

In this episode, I share with you 7 foods that can boost your metabolism. These foods support the thyroid and lower cortisol levels by taking you out of that catabolic state.

Mira

Mira helps women track their actual hormone levels so they know exactly when their fertile and infertile days are.

As a woman with PCOS who has previously suffered from irregular cycles, I know how difficult it can make tracking your cycles.

Not only this, some PCOS women have constantly high luteinizing hormone (LH) levels that can be as much three times the normal range. This can in turn lead to false readings when using things like Ovulating Predictor Kits because they might not detect a surge in luteinizing hormone as levels are constantly high.

But not with Mira.

Mira is an Artificially Intelligent-driven fertility device that has been designed with irregular cycles and PCOS women in mind, so it is able to detect the surge in LH above your high baseline. This is because we are all unique and Mira gathers data about you and tailors it's predictions to you. Whereas OPKs are designed around what is 'average'.

Mira will record your actual hormone levels each month and it's complex learning algorithm will predict your fertile days every cycle.

The more data Mira gathers about you each month, the smarter it gets and the more accurate it will be at making predictions for your following cycle.

So, Mira has successfully taken away the stress and guesswork involved in predicting your fertile and infertile days. To buy your very own Mira fertility tracker, go to miracare.com and use the code 'pcos25' at checkout to get $25 off your order.

Let'sGetChecked

I talk a lot about getting to the root cause of your PCOS on this podcast and hormonal testing is one of the most important ways of understanding your condition. Without testing your hormones, it is very difficult to know what type of PCOS you have.

Now, many women do not get the PCOS testing they need, whether it is because they're healthcare provider is not very supportive or because they purely do not have the time to visit their doctor. That is why I am excited to announce a new partnership with Let'sGetChecked!

LetsGetChecked provides you with easily accessible at home testing and professional medical consultations without ever having to leave your home.

So the way it works is super simple, you choose a test kit online, Let'sGetChecked then delivers it to you in discreet packaging, with next day delivery.

You then activate your test, collect your sample in the morning and return it using the prepaid shipping label provided.

From there LetsGetChecked reviews your sample in their lab and shares your results with you, via your secure online account within 2 to 5 days. It is super quick, seamless and your results are confidential.

Once your results are available, they will be reviewed by a physician. A nurse will then contact you for a consultation over-the-phone.

Finally, in some cases, the physician will provide prescriptions for you to the pharmacy of your choosing.

I believe everyone should have access to hormone testing and Let'sGetChecked makes that possible. It's never been this simple to stay on top of your hormonal health!
