Exercise is just as important for weight loss as watching what you eat, especially for women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). For many women, altering diet is not enough although combining specific diet choices and exercise will lead to sustained weight-loss benefits.

Positive Physical Effects of Exercise

Women with PCOS often struggle to keep their blood sugar balanced, which can impact weight loss. Exercise can be an important partner in keeping blood sugar under control. Exercise helps to keep blood sugar in the normal range and can also tame cravings for foods, including troublesome sugar and fat cravings.

Fertility is also improved with regular exercise. In fact, the lack of exercise can interfere with fertility, making it harder to conceive and have a baby. A lack of exercise combined with poor blood sugar control can lead to weight gain, which also can decrease chances of conceiving.

Good blood sugar balance, which is supported by regular exercise, can have positive effects on other PCOS symptoms, as well. Excessive hair growth becomes more manageable with better blood sugar control. Acne improves because of the improved blood circulation to your skin that exercise brings.

Exercise Guidelines for PCOS

Typical exercise guidelines state that those hoping to lose weight should work out 20 to 30 minutes at a time, three to four times a week. But that advice does not apply to PCOS weight loss.

Instead, the most workable plan consists of cross-training throughout the week, for longer than 30 minutes each session. It is okay to take off one to two days in a week, as long as you are still active on those days (such as dancing or skating). While it’s not mandatory to work out in a gym seven days a week, you need to be moving and physically active every day.

For the best chance of success, focus on the types of exercise you truly enjoy or can commit to doing on a regular basis. This will help you to build good habits to last a lifetime. Keep it fun, whether your exercise takes place at home, at a gym, at a pool, or outdoors.

Weight lifting is a particularly helpful type of exercise, particularly resistance training. It is very helpful for controlling blood sugar and also promotes a healthy cholesterol profile. While some women with PCOS may fear that their increased testosterone will lead to bulky muscles, the truth is that it’s not likely to happen. Weight lifting will, however, lead to better muscle definition over time and make you physically stronger, which can make you feel more comfortable in your body.

Added Effects of Exercise

In addition to the physical benefits, exercise brings mental benefits. Women with PCOS can gain a feeling of power, instead of feeling like a victim to PCOS symptoms. That, in turn, leads to higher feelings of self-esteem, which lead to making better choices to support your well-being. You are less likely to fall into emotional traps that will cause you to sabotage your weight loss. You feel more focused and are more likely to avoid your triggers for overeating or for eating junk foods.

Exercise helps build good personal habits and good choices day after day. Over time, exercise contributes to steady weight loss. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t lose all the weight in a short period of time. Have some patience and keep at it. You can do it.

In order to lose weight, women with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) need to know the truth about eating fats. Misconceptions about fats abound, so to have better success, it’s important to separate fact from fiction.

Why Some Fats Are Good

Not all fats are bad; and avoiding all fats means denying your body the good fats. While fat can be an obvious source of calories, overdoing it while cutting out fats is not as helpful as it seems.

Actually, eating a moderate amount of healthy fats is a good idea and is more likely to help you shed unwanted pounds. Why? The hormone imbalance responsible for some of the health issues associated with PCOS — including weight gain, acne, cravings, and fertility issues — will respond well to eating healthy fats. In other words, eating healthy fats will influence your hormonal balance in a positive way.

Healthy fats nourish the body, giving it important building blocks for not only improved hormonal balance but improved wellness.

Which Fats to Avoid and Which Fats to Eat

Women with PCOS have to focus on eating healthy fats while eliminating unhealthy fats. Otherwise, her body will be trapped in the hormone imbalances that cause problems for those with PCOS.

Eliminate all trans-fats, all hydrogenated fats, hydrogenated vegetable oils, margarine, lard and fat back. If you are preparing your own food, read labels and be careful not to add these fats. These kinds of fats are a disaster for those with PCOS, because they can aggravate problems with hormone balance. They directly interfere with wellness.

Check labels regularly, even with products you’ve bought for years, because formulations can change. Don’t make assumptions.

Healthy fats that you should seek out include olive oil and palm oil (although you should read the label and make certain it is not in a hydrogenated form). Safflower oil is another good oil, as is coconut oil. Even though coconut oil has saturated fat, it’s good for you. Specifically, it helps with improving metabolism. Sesame oil is also a healthy choice.

You might be surprised to learn that using a small amount of organic butter or organic ghee (clarified butter) is also okay. Ghee has nutrients that are good for your gut. Just limit your consumption to about 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons of ghee or butter at a time.

How Healthy Fats Can Help

Some dieters believe that eliminating all fats is the best course for losing weight. However, especially for those with PCOS, you should instead focus on eating healthy oils. It is far healthier and more sustainable to lose weight by including healthy fats as part of your overall weight loss plan.

Your body uses these fats to make hormones. They are also used to repair your nervous system, and to keep the digestive tract and your skin healthy. It’s not smart to eliminate these fats over a long period of time, especially when you have PCOS.

By watching which fats you consume, along with a comprehensive diet plan for PCOS weight loss, you will see gradual results.

Summary

Don’t be afraid of eating fats, but stick to healthy fats. Eat them gently; don’t drown your food in oils. A small amount of healthy fat is good for your overall health, even if you have PCOS. Eating healthy fats will help improve your hormone balance, help you feel full and satisfied when you eat, and help to tame food cravings. Healthful fats are a part of a sustainable healthy eating program for PCOS wellness including PCOS weight loss.
