What are the nutritional specialist meetings like?
Well, I've only met with her once so far, I have another meeting on Tuesday as a follow-up to see how it is going. At our first meeting, she had a very frank discussion with me about what PCOS does to my metabolism, and how that affects weight loss. Basically, the first step is to get my insulin levels regulated, and the best way to do that is to control my blood sugar and avoid blood sugar spikes. She gave me a list of food "rules" as well as a very "black and white" sheet of what I can eat and what I should avoid. It's been almost three weeks, so I am going to check in with her to report how it's going. I also have a list of questions for her. It's a bit pricey, but I've spent even more money on diets like Ideal Protein and Medi-weightloss. The problems I have with those is that I can't keep them up past three or four months and the 20+ pounds I have lost by then come right back! With the nutritionist, it's very personal and the diet is tailored to me so that I can stick with it and make it a lifestyle change, rather than just another DIET!
