Ready to crack the code to healthy eating and better manage your PCOS? Do you want more energy, fertility improvement, weight loss and peace of mind while eating foods you love without frustration, deprivation and overwhelm? Wouldn’t it be nice to only have ONE voice in your head about your nutrition? If you've answered YES you are in the right place. Diets are not the answer. This is especially true in women with PCOS. Traditional diets do not address the main issue of insulin resistance which makes weight loss even more difficult. Calorie restricted diets such as Intermittent fasting can leave you feeling “hangry”. They cause the metabolism to slow down and the body to reserve as many calories as possible. The body then starts to crave sugar (glucose) for energy causing an increased intake of simple sugars leading to more glucose floating in the bloodstream causing low energy. Not to mention triggering feelings of guilt and anxiety. Keto dieting promotes a high intake of fat that can make a woman with PCOS even more insulin resistant creating a vicious cycle of stimulating more insulin production leading to an increased production of testosterone. I am Andrea Whitley RDN, CSP, LD. I help women with PCOS feel more confident in their skin by determining which foods are optimal for their bodies. My clients experience improved insulin hormone health relieving their PCOS symptoms of reduced acne, increased sex drives, better intimacy, increased confidence, weight loss, less mood swings, shiny hair and stronger nails to name a few. Ultimately their energy levels go up, fertility improves, they stress way less and manage their weight long-term. The "yo-yo" dieting cycle ends and they stop playing the guessing game with their health. Basically, they live the life they’ve always dreamed of. For over 12 years I have worked as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and I am Board Certified as a Specialist in Pediatric Nutrition. I have worked in some of the top teaching hospital centers in the nation with a variety of people. We work together for least three months. I don’t do “one and done” sessions because honestly, they don’t work. They are a waste of your time and money. Healing takes time. Developing new habits, letting go of old ones and trusting the process is not an overnight thing. Not if you want long lasting results. When I'm not working, I'm sleep, serving in ministry, loving life with my family and friends, caught up in a Netflix series or researching my next vacay. The first step in working together is to book your clarity call. You'll learn exactly what's been holding you back from losing weight and breakthrough those obstacles. Talk to you soon!
