New on this programme

Just joined and I have a LOT of weight to lose. Tried various different methods in the past, but I struggle due to PCOS (which has affected my insulin resistance) and spending at least half my time on the road, which in turn means I eat out. A lot. So, looking forward to getting back in control, hopefully reversing the resistance to insulin whilst also balancing my poor scrambled hormones, and learning how to cope with weeks at a time living on restaurant food!

  • Hi and welcome AnwenPwll :)

    There's a PCOS community on this site and they may be able to help you with your specific needs

    Take a look at the Pinned Posts section, to the right of your screen (bottom, if you're using a mobile) and have a look at the Welcome Newbies thread, it has a link to the NHS 12 week plan, which is a guide to healthy living, rather that a specific diet plan.

    Consider joining any, or all, of our challenges, as they're fun and motivating.

    Join us for the monday group weigh-in. If you follow Lowcal, you'll be notified when she posts the thread. However, the latest thread can always be found in the events section, to the right of the home page.

    Be active on the forum, as that's where we exchange ideas and get our daily dose of motivation and inspiration :)

    Wishing you all the very best :)
