PCOS | Improvements since going Keto / Low Carb & Losing weight | KtO_ Keto

I wanted to do a video that breaks down what PCOS is and what improvements I have seen since starting a Keto / Low Carb lifestyle and dropping about 50 lbs.

This video is a little longer but that’s b/c this is a topic I’m very passionate about, I get into all the hairy details. Poly-cystic Ovary Syndrome is a hormone imbalance that can cause infertility / trouble conceiving as well as some other “fun” physical side effects.

Such as:

– insulin resistance
– high testosterone levels
– cysts on the ovaries
– hirsutism
– depression
– irregular / nonexistent / heavy cycles
– the list goes on…

Please see your Doctor for an official diagnosis if you think this is something you may have. This video is purely anecdotal of what improvements I have seen in my PCOS symptoms.

  • I also have PCOS so I understand the frustrations you have experienced with the disorder. When you go to the doctor, I bet you'll find a significant difference in the tests they run on you. After six months of Keto, I found that the cysts on my ovaries had diminished which left my doctor very surprised and he encouraged me to continue what I was doing. Also, I found that the hair on my chest, stomach, and legs had diminished significantly, or at least the growth rate lessened. I can attest to Keto making "Keto Babies" as I was pregnant within six months (with a drastic difference in my periods not only in it's regulation but also flow) but unfortunately miscarried. There's many great things about Keto which make it something I would want to stick to for a long time. Congrats on all your achievements while on Keto!

  • You are wonderful and full of positivity. I'm glad you found things to help you 🙂

  • Great video. I also suffer from PCOS, Insulin Resistance, & Hypothyroid; the triple threat lol. Keto/Low carb has been like a savior for me, it's the only thing that seems to be leveling out my hormones. I unfortunately, have hair EVERYWHERE except for where I want it, because the hair on my head is thinning like crazy 🙁 I look forward to more videos! 🙂

  • how long did it take for your periods to get regulated ?

  • Thanks for this!

  • im happy to hear that it helps minimize unwanted hair.. im really considering trying this diet also because my periods are irregular.
