    Pearl @pearl, why are you not feeling Keto nau? It’s an effective diet, so far as I know for weight loss, which in turn boost fertility. That is the main reason, I find it interesting.

    And like most diets, it requires discipline to pull through.

    @oluwakemine: Personally, I am a picky eater. Opening up to any form of diet means it must contain what I like in terms of ingredients or methods of cooking if not I tend to just pass by when I see such.

    Example is adding cheese to food…Asides African cheese i.e Wara, I do not think I can stand any other. The smell alone can make me pass out.

    When it comes to cooking protein, chicken for example I hate the bake version rather I boil with various spices and note always without the skin. The skin can make me throw up.

    Shirmp is a no no no no no no no no no no no no no for me if you see me like a recipe that has shrimp in it just know that it will be replaced with something else or skip the step when cooking.

    Keto diet can be good but my question is how sustainable is adhering to it.

    I am more into a lifelong diet change hence why I just hold on to various recipes from various diets rather than the whole diet concept itself.**Hoping you understand what I mean.**

    I see what you mean Pearl @pearl. As long as it suits you. Then its fine.

    As for sustainability, I thinks it helps to take a break periodically.

    @pearl hun, ah I thought I was a picky eater :haha: . The one thing we have in common is the cheese thing  :sick: . Even the African one, I no fit.

    But overall shaaa, I do like the KETO diet. It’s extremely hrd to keep up, and I have been struggling since trying to get back on it, but it gave me a lot of results. Another one that really worked for me was the mainly fruit diet I was on recently, but you know us PCOS girls have to be careful with that one.

    All in all, it’s about eating clean and exercising. Abi?

    So, this dropped in my Inbox recently. I get a lot of material on fertility, PCOS, etc. Some I ignore, some I pay attention to. This one caught my attention.

    According to the article, women with PCOS are more susceptible to endocrine disrupting chemicals in our environment. That means that toxins we encounter every day worsen our PCOS symptoms despite our best efforts.

    The article recommended some kind of detox diet, but I lost interest (you know they’re always trying to sell something). But it got me thinkig, because anytime I do detox, it makes me feel so much better!

    What are your thoughts? @pearl

    @nicole: You read to article just like I would have with the idea of so ”what are they selling.”

    Detoxing is good either one has got PCOS or not but one has to know what is good for one that will aid the detox.

    Personally, I just drink water and more water and more water while I eat lots of green vegetables. I often do not subscribe to products that claim can help detox ones body because one isn’t 100% sure of their content.

    @pearl, I agree with water and more water…and greens too. In the end, those are the most sustainable. :yes:   :yes:
