Does anyone else suffer from both PCOS and IBS? What diet/eating habits do you find really help your symptoms and weight loss?
I'm really struggling right now. I was diagnosed with PCOS last year following the birth of my child, it's taken me 6 months drop only 2kg following my usual eating/exercise habits (normally it would be at least double the loss by now). I'm not on any meds for my PCOS but I do need to try drop at least another 5, preferably 10kg to see if that helps alleviate my symptoms. Another issue is that I suffer from IBS and currently things like dairy, red meat, eggs, many legumes/beans and nuts just don't agree with me. I'm finding it very hard to fill up on a good protein source and many shakes also cause flare ups. General symptoms are fatigue, cramps, bloating and very mixed digestive issues. I find I turn to refined carbs more and more for the quick energy hit and to fill me up short term, this of course does not help my weight loss efforts!
Any suggestions on a good diet to follow for both PCOS and IBS? Should I maybe seek help from a dietitian?
