282-PCOS the Non-Diet Way with Julie Duffy Dillon

Is there a Non-diet Approach to PCOS?  

In case you do not know PCOS is the medical abbreviation for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome which affects roughly 10% of women of childbearing age in America. That’s 5 million women. 

The top 2 treatment recommendations for PCOS are a very low carbohydrate diet with the hope to lower insulin levels and weight loss. Makes me think of diet culture…

The Non-Diet Way to PCOS

To answer the starting question:

YES,  there’s a way to address PCOS without co-opting diet culture. 

NO, you do not have to go on a restrictive diet for the rest of your life to lower insulin or have to lose weight…

YES, you can manage your PCOS status using intuitive eating.
