Hello, finding something that suits you personally is probably the biggest challenge. Maybe it could be useful to start with exploring what gets in the way and stops you from being successful. For me little changes work better. If I do something drastic like an extremely strict diet, I stick with it religiously for a little bit and then everything collapses and gets much worse. But replacing a few food items with healthier ones, or having something that is not good for me less often - those things don’t feel like a big change, but over time bring positive result. I wish you all the best.


Hi and welcome, kirstymarie96 :)

In order to help your PCOS, you need to do more than just lose weight, you need to reduce your carbohydrates too. Have a look at these:

All of the information you need about the forum can be found in Pinned Posts and I hope you'll be joining all the Events, Challenges and Clubs that we run, especially a weigh-in and the daily diary.

If you haven't already taken it, here's a tour of the forum

We've found active participation to be key to successful weight loss and, of course, it's a good way to get to know people, find inspiration and share support and encouragement.

Wishing you all the best :)

I have used the LCHF approach by eating fats you don’t have the hunger cravings you have when you’re using calorie control and eating carbs. Slowly increasing exercise and building muscle and fitness helps too. I need to remind myself I am not going on a diet I am changing my diet to a healthy way of eating. I am always going to eat like this.

Good luck remember you are doing this for you and your long term health and happiness if you waver or struggle with it keep tweaking till it works for you

keep asking for support. If it’s a struggle start again when you are ready and keep coming back to it we are only human and we have good days and days where it’s a struggle I wish you every success
