If you want to treat PC OS , the first thing that you need to do is get the right information .
And I'm so glad you're here .
Now that you've given me your time , I'll make sure that by the end of this video , you'll have a clear idea of what PC OS is , why it happens and what you can do to control it so that you have your periods regularly .
And I'll also give you a P CE diet plan that you can download and print .
Let's first ask Dr Radika , who is a gynecologist , what PC OS really is ?
Polycystic Ovarian syndrome or Polycystic Ovarian disease is a condition where there is hormonal imbalance , which leads to irregular periods and sometimes difficulty in conceiving .
It's associated with weight gain and excessive hair growth , which is called her CISM P CS .
Basically means that your ovaries are under a lot of pressure and that is why they are not functioning properly .
Let's first understand why one in every five women in India have P CS .
And that's because Indian women in particular have to go through a lot of challenges .
Social as well as physiological starting with career .
Then pressures to get married , having to adjust in a new family , the decision of childbirth , which is often not hers , but everybody else's .
In fact , a friend of mine had to go through a drug treatment because her in laws wanted her to get pregnant soon .
And that messed up her body .
In spite of doing all of this , we are still judged for how we behave , what we wear our skin color and all of these judgments and compromises will lead to what stress .
And unfortunately today , our bodies have started showing that stress in the form of acne , hair loss , unwanted hair , weight gain , irregular periods .
A K A PC OS Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome , which is nothing but an indication that things in our life are not in our control .
But the good news is this PC OS is not a fatal condition yet , but it is a yellow warning sign telling us that we are leading towards other fatal conditions like type two diabetes , high blood pressure , heart diseases , depression , high body fat .
So before it gets worse , how do we treat P CS ?
Two things are important in the treatment aspect of PCD .
First and foremost , is modification of the lifestyle that is adopting a healthy lifestyle involves , you know , taking a healthy diet , which includes taking a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables , which also act like antioxidants .
And the more important is a regular physical activity which really helps in reducing the weight sometimes reducing the weight of around five Ks helps to regularize your period and also helps in conceiving .
Yes , doctors agree that if you lose your body fat , it will help your ovaries perform better .
But we know that losing fat is not easy .
I don't , but that's not a problem .
The real problem is this , there are people who know that it is difficult .
So to make a quick bug , they're trying to sell you one month transformation programs lose 10 kg in five setting procedures or 1000 kg calorie diet plants which are not healthy at all for your body , let alone your ovaries , but you still fall for it thinking that let me first lose 5 to 10 kgs using crash dieting and then I'll get back to healthy eating .
Tell me this .
Do you know anyone for whom it has worked ?
They might lose 1 to 2 kgs at first , but they gain five back and then they give up .
So today , we're not going to talk about any crash diet .
Today , we're going to talk about an anti PCOS lifestyle change that will make your bones denser skin , smoother hair , thicker , mind calmer .
And most importantly , it will make you lose back .
Juha Deer in her book about PCOS says that there are two ways to treat it .
Number one is when you try to control of the unknown , that is your hormones , you make your ovaries stop functioning and instead use drugs to bring a hormonal balance .
But we all know that drugs have side effects .
So they should not be your first option .
But there's also a second way in which you don't touch your hormones at all .
Instead you control what's known and that's your body and the best part it doesn't have any side effects .
So if you want to access this side effect free drug , free inexpensive solution , then you need to take care of these four things .
I hope you're ready .
Number one diet , weight loss , lady person diet and by diet , I don't mean soups , salads or boiled vegetables .
Your ovaries are at a stage where they need all the essential nutrients more than ever .
And that is possible only if you follow these four basic healthy food guidelines .
Number one , throw away anything that says fat free or low fat because without essential fats , there is no absorption of fat soluble vitamins like ad E which are required by your body .
Number two , you know this one already , no packet , cereals , processed foods , colas juices , chips or anything that comes in a packet ready to eat .
And I'll tell you why our bodies are made up of the food that we eat .
And if we eat frozen , processed , heavy on chemicals .
Food , imagine what will our body be like ?
Number three , make sure that you include things like whole grains , dulls , milk , milk products , fish , eggs , flat seeds , walnuts , honey cheese , green veggies , things that are fermented like italy dosa in your diet because they not only improve your hormones , also improve your insulin sensitivity .
Number four , eat your food on time .
I don't know why women wake up sort the house and around the maid prepare food , feed , kids pack the bus for their husband .
Wait for the loss to finish .
And after everything is done , they eat for themselves .
Girl eat your food first because if you take care of your body , then it will have the energy to take care of someone else .
No , keeping all these four food guidelines in mind .
I prepared a diet plan and have included it in the description so you can print it and even hang it on your refrigerator as a reminder , make sure you keep changing your dolls and your sub G so that you get essential nutrients from all of those vegetables along with those healthy spices .
And in case your doctor has asked you to avoid or include something specifically , then make sure you do that too .
The second thing that you need to take care of is exercise .
You knew I was going to say this , but you were hoping that I would because I know you don't like working out .
And that's the problem because exercise is supposed to be our playtime .
As little girls , we loved playing , running , skipping climbing trees .
But once we hit puberty , we said goodbye to all physical activity instead of playing , we used to gather around form a group and just look at guys playing during PD period .
I mean , I don't know about you but I used to do that , but over the past few years I discovered this , the only way to regular periods is through regular exercise .
And don't worry , I'm not even asking you to join the gym .
Start walking , brisk , walking , pick up badminton or any other sport that you like , because if you want your ovaries to get healthy , you need to move .
If you want to work out at home , then start with this 15 minute beginner home workout and do it for at least three days every week .
In fact , I made a whole set of videos to make exercise easy and accessible for you about what exercise is best for weight loss , strength training for women .
All of their links is in the description .
So make sure you check them out .
The third thing that can help us treat PC OS is sleep .
When did you sleep last night ?
12 12 , comment and let me know .
And then you woke up again at seven or eight .
That means that your body did not get any time to absorb nutrients , repair , heal .
If you want to see weight loss results , then you have to sleep at the same time and wake up at the same time every single day .
And if you're from it , don't tell me that you sleep on weekends and wake up for the entire week that does not count the fourth .
And the final thing that you need to control pcos is love before you call me Shady and close this video .
Hear me out .
The reason why we put on weight is because often we don't have any control over what we eat , we eat either because we are too stressed or we are seeking some sort of emotional fulfillment that we try to find in food .
Isn't that correct ?
And I'm not judging anyone , as I said earlier , being a woman in India is very difficult and that stress will lead to stressful eating .
But the truth is this , these things might never change .
There'll always be a partial manager , difficult in laws challenging kids , demanding house pressures from the society .
And the only way to ignore all of this is to find something that you love , something that feels like a break , like singing , dancing , painting , playing with your kids , physical intimacy with your partner , working out cooking , making youtube videos .
There needs to be an outlet .
Honestly , before I found youtube , I used to be very stressed and angry all the time .

So let this be a goal for 2018 to find something that you love to do .
Because once you have this in place , you will not be stressed , you will eat healthy food , you will find the time to exercise and you will sleep on time .
And all of these will lead to fat loss and healthy ovaries because girl health is not a one month program .
It is a lifelong journey and only these four things will keep you healthy .
