Take Control of Your PCOS Symptoms

PCOS Services at VeggieLush Nutrition

Does this scenario sound familiar – you have an irregular period and maybe you are lucky enough for your doc to correctly diagnose PCOS, then they tell you to go on the pill and metformin and lose 10 lbs? At least 10% of genetically female people have PCOS. And guess what, it increases your chances of infertility, diabetes, heart disease and a bunch of other “fun” stuff. More importantly, traditional treatments like going on the pill, taking metformin and just losing weight through fad diets aren’t enough and can sometimes even make things worse!

What if I told you there is a much, much better way to treat PCOS, regulate your period and conquer your symptoms, and it just involves simple diet and lifestyle changes?

Learn to Take Control of Your PCOS

I’ve developed a simple 6 step plan to take control of PCOS, and I want to share it with you! Yes, it’s that simple. These are my 6 core steps to taking control of your PCOS, getting your period back and showing all your symptoms who’s boss:

#1 Manage Blood Sugar

PCOS increases insulin resistance, which can cause chronically high blood sugar. Learn to balance meals and favor low glycemic index foods, so you can keep blood sugar even all day and avoid cravings and excess weight gain.

2. Reduce Inflammation

PCOS can be highly inflammatory. Learn to add in foods that will reduce inflammation over time to help you avoid chronic diseases and reduce period pain.

3. Improve Gut Health

We’re learning more and more about how our gut health is related to overall health. Learn to maintain a diverse microbiome with prebiotics and probiotics to treat stomach and intestinal symptoms like diarrhea, constipation and bloating.

4. Balance Hormones Naturally

PCOS causes a hormone imbalance, where you have extra male hormones. Learn to use phytoestrogens and high fiber foods to help nudge your hormones in the right direction and help with symptoms like unwanted hair growth.

5. Set Up Your Home & Your Life for Success

Learn to stock your pantry, eat out and travel while staying on track. Even if you have a busy life, work many hours or have kids to take care of, you can set yourself up to stay healthy without a ton of effort and time.

6. Practice Intuitive & Mindful Eating

Finally, once you know all that, you can learn to practice intuitive and mindful eating by ditching diet culture and learning to listen to your body.

7. Boost Your Fertility (Optional)

PCOS can mess with your fertility. If you’ve gone through the first 6 steps you’re most of the way there, but there are specific foods and eating patterns we know help increase your chances of getting pregnant sooner.

Work with me to learn all this in a way that is tailored to your particular body and symptoms. Some people might need to focus on one part or another of my program, depending on the type of PCOS they have. That’s why I offer one on one nutrition counseling packages that are either 6 or 12 weeks long. To learn more and see if we’d be the right fit to tackle your PCOS, book a free nutrition chat.

I know what it’s like to go to your doc with hormone-related issues and be told to go on the pill or just lose 10 lbs (yup, I was told to do both those things). BUT, the good news is, that even large health organizations recognize that diet and lifestyle are the first lines of defense for PCOS! And it’s best to work with a Registered Dietitian who knows about PCOS and can help you make science backed diet and lifestyle changes that are sustainable and enjoyable for you.

Find the Best PCOS Diet for You

What does that mean? Working on your diet to balance blood sugar (PCOS often comes with insulin resistance), increasing phytoestrogens to naturally help balance your hormones, adding in anti-inflammatory foods to fight inflammation associated with PCOS and looking strategically at supplement options that might help your particular symptoms.

What that doesn’t mean – cutting out any major food groups, changing your dietary preferences (i.e. vegan, vegetarian), cutting out gluten, dairy, caffeine, alcohol, dessert or enjoying life. You get to enjoy all those things with PCOS, and you can follow your chosen dietary preference with smart tweaks to help you thrive with PCOS!

We’ll take a detailed look into your current diet and find the best ways to add in phytoestrogens, anti-inflammatory foods and help balance blood sugar in the most delicious way possible! Want to learn more and make a quick plan to tackle your symptoms?

Eat Delicious Food & Thrive with PCOS

Culturally Sensitive Recommendations


Work with a PCOS Expert

There is no one diet that will cure your PCOS, which is why it’s so important to work with a dietitian to find the foods you need to eat to help manage your PCOS and take control of your symptoms. We can do this in a way that works with your cultural background, dietary preferences and favorite foods!

Many of my clients are busy professional women, who are driven to be successful in their careers and can’t wait to get out of quarantine and enjoy a night out on the town with delicious food and drinks! Guess what, cysters? You can enjoy that too, even if you have PCOS, and you don’t have to suffer though symptom flare ups or sacrifice your health or future fertility.

I work with women to find a joyful approach to treating PCOS that allows them to enjoy their meals, find a healthy weight for their bodies and ultimately love their lives! I’ll walk through the best meals for your taste, the best techniques for eating out, the items you want in your fridge and pantry and how to eat intuitively to keep your symptoms in check for the rest of your life.

If that sounds good to you, book a free nutrition chat and we’ll put together a plan to tackle your symptoms and help you enjoy your food, accept your body and love every moment!
