Helping women with PCOS to achieve health, nutrition, and fertility goals through nutrition counseling
Are you feeling frustrated by weight gain, difficulty losing weight, acne, or irregular menstrual cycles?
Have you been told to “just lose weight” and your PCOS will get better?
Do you get confused by the internet recommendations for PCOS?
Are you feeling worried about your health and your fertility?
PCOS is not your fault. While there are no quick fixes, there are things you can do to improve your symptoms and feel better!
Why work with me?
As a woman with PCOS, I have struggled with many of the symptoms that you may be experiencing. I know that finding credible recommendations can be a challenge. In my 5 years of working with women, I have found solutions to their health problems and helped them live healthier lives with less symptoms. I encourage you to let me help you make some changes that work with your lifestyle that can make a big impact on your health.
I’m excited to work with the PCOS population because I believe you are underserved and I also believe I have a lot to offer you to make significant improvements in your health and well being.
What is it like to work with a dietitian?
First and foremost I am not the food police and I do not believe that there is a perfect diet. Perfect doesn’t exist y’all! I will spend a lot of time getting to know you, finding out what your schedule is like, and asking you what you eat now and what you like to eat. I will ask you about your health history, how you sleep, and how you handle stress. We will talk about your goals are and what you are hoping to get out of our sessions together. Then we will spend some time talking about what is going on in your body with PCOS, discuss some changes to eating patterns, come up with meal ideas, and decide if supplements are right for you. Each session we will choose some achievable goals and evaluate them at the next session.
A disclaimer about diets…
I do not recommend “fad” diets such as Keto, Paleo, Atkins, or Intermittent Fasting. I will not guarantee weight loss. Instead we will talk about what you like to eat and what your lifestyle is like and together formulate some research-back strategies to help achieve your health goals. Short term diets only lead to weight gain long term.
