At Fertility Chef, we are well aware of the challenges faced by women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. The methods needed to control the weight gain, hormone fluctuation and other effects tend to consist of medicating the problem with something like metformin, a variety of birth control pills or surgery.
While these may be realistic options for many women, at Fertility Chef we prefer to take a holistic approach to PCOS. We understand that medical options can frequently be assisted by lifestyle changes and changes in diet.
At Fertility Chef we have developed a ketogenic eating system, designed to aid in the struggle against PCOS.
Now, you may be wondering what a ketogenic diet is.
A ketogenic diet is designed to get your body to switch to consumption of fat, through a process called ketosis. Ketosis causes your body to turn to an alternative source of energy from the traditional glucose/glucogan stores it prefers to use.
Under ketosis, your body breaks down fat cells into energy packets called ketone bodies. This causes a range of different effects in the human body, due to the reallocation of energy and hormones which must go on for ketosis to occur.
