Help please! I have always been fat and found out the rason for that 20 years ago, in my 30s. I have PCOS which makes me insulin resistant, in turn making all carbs a hinderence to weight loss. Yes, that includes fruit, root veg and what I call 'nice veg' (peas, sweetcorn). All the slimming clubs tell you to include lots of these foods to fill up. Impossible with PCOS. Anything with Aspartame is also a no no because it causes unbelievable sugar/carb cravings (as well as cancer/dementia etc).
The only time I have successful weight loss is by cutting out all carbs or following meal replacement plans, neither of which are sustainable long term. And of course, when I come off them I pile on even more weight.
I also don't appear to have an "off" switch once I start eating although I can go all day without food with no problem. It's really getting me down and I have no help from my GP or supposed 'specialists'. They don't seem to understand the psychological consequenses of PCOS. It's not just the overies it affects.
I have 8 stone to lose and have prolapsed discs, making it very hard to carry out my daily work duties so I'm dosed up with Tramadol and Amitriptyline.
I feel like putting on more weight just to qualify for bariatric surgery which boils down to how desperate I've become.
