Hi..
PCOS is one of the reasons as to why you are gaining weight , i'd suggest you to get yourself treated for that so as to keep your hormones in check, with that being said you can do a lot in your diet. Skipping is a great exercise keep doing that if possible everyday, now coming to the diet everyone tells you " eat less fat well true to a certain extent but more than the fats its the carbs that cause the problem cut short on your carbohydrate intake , try and eat 4-5 small meals throught out the day this will help you boost your metabolism.
Avoid all sorts of processed foods such as potato chips, chocolates, fast food etc, and its good to know that you keep yourself hydrated, drink green tea regulary it helps you burn fat. Follow the above mentioned diet and exercise regimen u should lose 2-3 kilos every 10 days.
Thank you and take care

PCOS-polycystic ovary is very common condition and weight gain is part of it
you need to take medicine for it regularly and keep your hormones in balance

drinking more water is neither good nor worse

Hello
Thanks for your query.

I will try my best to provide you with best possible professional recommendations to your questions.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common female endocrine disorders. it is thought to be one of the leading causes of female subfertility. The principal features are anovulation, resulting in irregular menstruation, amenorrhea, ovulation-related infertility, and polycystic ovaries; excessive amounts or effects of androgenic (masculinizing) hormones, resulting in acne and hirsutism; and insulin resistance, often associated with obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol levels. I advice you to consult OBG specialist for PCOD treatment. Obesity is due to PCOD.

Also you can try meeting dietician, to control your obesity. Even only dieting will not be enough you have to exercise to reduce your weight.

Yet again, I duly appreciate your query to me, I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further queries.

Regards

Hello.Welcome to HCM forum.The most important treatment for you is good amount of regular exercises and reduction of your weight.Even if you take all the proper medicines and don't reduce weight your treatment will fail.If you are not able to control your weight yourself,as you said,you must take services of a professional dietician to reduce weight.Thanks and good luck.

Dear Muskaan,
Your problem of increasing weight and PCOD--both are interrelated.First of all,you need to consult a good gynacologist for polycystic ovaries and follow his/her treatment sincerely.Secondly,driking water in excess is not going to help--you may suffer from overhydration,so drink water only when you are thirsty.Thirdly,eat a balanced diet with less oily food and more of salads with halfboiled sprouts like moong[you can skip one principle meal,if possible].Fourthly,go for brisk walk daily for at least 35 to 45 minuted a day and have Cap.Harty twice daily.Continue skipping.
Hope you achieve your goal.

PCOS is a syndrome that is becoming ommon nowadays in young females.As its name dnotes,it is characterized by multiple cysts in ovary.The cysts cause hormonal imbalances in the body.As a result various complaints like obesity,male pattern hair growth,pimples,diabetes melitus are seen.
