What? But I thought eating less was a GOOD thing?
When you are aiming to lose weight, eating less is the most commonly given advice. After all, it makes sense, doesn’t it? Eat less, weigh less?
For many women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, weight loss is not this easy or simple. Issues like insulin resistance and hypothyroidism needs to be addressed first. This will actually enable weight loss where it may have been a frustratingly impossible process before.
But how can eating less cause harm?
Fat cells are the safest place to store toxins unable to be removed from your body. When we begin to lose weight, these toxins are released into our bodies. You need ample nutrients to detoxify safely and completely. If you are eating a very restrictive diet, you will not have the nutritional reserves to effectively remove these toxins. Toxins can cause a cascade of imbalances – decreased insulin sensitivity, increased bodily stress, (very low calorie diets have even been shown to damage the walls of your arteries!) These changes can actually inhibit your weight loss and reduce your fertility.
If you overeat, this issue needs to be addressed. But we know that not including enough of the nutrients to be well is a big problem as well.
