Advice for insulin resistance?


I would like to find out if you have any advice for Insulin Resistance people?

I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) as a result of the IR (Insulin Resistance) and the weight gain among other things has been very difficult to manage.

Any advice?

    hi Lyndal,

    I have been diagnosed with the same. This year I decided to go and seek the help of a dietician, and she worked out a eating plan. so far I have lost 5kg’s in a matter of 3 weeks. And feel more and more motivated as I see the kg’s dropping. I would suggest that be your next visit. I do not regret it one bit.

    Good Luck, stick to it, and you will see results.
