Although the literature states that 1 in 10 women have PCOS, many specialists have said that that number is now much closer to 25-35% of all women. PCOS is associated with hormonal imbalances and insulin resistance that may lead to weight gain, especially central obesity, hypertension, depression, infertility, irregular menstruation, PMS, diabetes, cancer, sleep apnea, fatty liver, acne, cholesterolemia, hair thinning, facial hair, low libido, ovarian cysts, sugar cravings...and the list goes on. Often women are medicated for each of these conditions without any improvement in quality of life or well-being. LCHF can help. Women with PCOS should be on a strict to moderate LCHF Plan and a proper IF schedule.
