The PCOS Plan:
Prevent and Reverse Polycystic Ovary Syndrome through Diet and Fasting
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is the most common reproductive disorder in the world, affecting an estimated eight to 20 percent of women of reproductive age, almost half of whom are unable to conceive. PCOS is also associated with increased risks of heart disease, ovarian and endometrial cancers, and type 2 diabetes.
In this clearly written guide, backed by science and personal experience, Drs. Jason Fung and Nadia Brito Pateguana identify the symptoms of PCOS and reveal its root cause: excess insulin. They then show how to prevent and reverse PCOS with a low-carb diet and intermittent fasting. As a bonus, fifty recipes and a variety of menu plans are included to put new knowledge into (delicious) practice.

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.
