    I just was recently diagnosed with PCOS. I’m 17 and I don’t know what to do. Im at such a loss. I feel so disgusting, like I havent done what I’m supposed to do. Now I’m trapped with a fat body and male hormones surging around my body, creating unpleasant effects. Thank you for this video. Hopefully I can turn myself around. I’m so worried.

    @iluye Yes, you just need to be aware that those milks (except coconut) are often high in carbohydrates.

  4. PowerOverPCOS says:

    @shawna1320 No they’re not dairy.

  5. iluye says:

    So dairy is out, but can I still use Almond Milk, Coconut Milk, Rice Milk, etc?

  6. shawna1320 says:

    Would almond or soy milk be concidered dairy?

    @aiy19sha I have PCOS and don’t have dairy (I’m lactose intolerant also). For breakfast I typically have porridge made on water with calcium fortified rice milk (fortified soy milk should be ok also) and a ground up seed/nut mix called LSA (linseeds, sunflower seeds, almonds) for good fats. Baked beans on toast or poached eggs on toast are also good. If you like salmon I would suggest trying to eat tinned salmon regulary as it has tiny edible bones in it that has lots of calcium.

    Omega 3s! Totally skipped mine the last few days. Gotta go take it now :o)

  9. aiy19sha says:

    @PowerOverPCOS So do you know what i can do for breakfast instead, cause I have always had breakfast with dairy products such as cheese on toast or milk and cereal

  10. PowerOverPCOS says:

    @aiy19sha That is correct. There are other ways to ensure healthy bones, dairy is not essential for this. Speak to a health professional about getting a good quality calcium & vitamin D supplement, and eating plenty of vegetables, nuts, salmon, sesame seeds, and at least 2 serves of fruit daily.

  11. aiy19sha says:

    not having dairy products. does that mean no milk and yoghurt as well. because my bones are also weak

  13. fictionlover19941 says:

    @salzwell25 Tell me about it.

  14. PowerOverPCOS says:

    @salzwell25 Dark chocolate is good! not the same, but can satisfy that craving.

  15. salzwell25 says:

    I wish I didn’t love chocolate so much

    hhmmm dairy interesting. i have heard that soy can make women with pcos gain weight, not sure if that’s true. i have always been able to lose weight as long as i do low carb, lots of exercise, and stay on bc. BUT i always gain it back VERY fast. I will constantly yoyo, and i dont want to accept it.

  17. PcosDietPlan says:

    I make videos here on youtube that are pcos related and I don’t know if you’d be interested but you would totally make my day if you checked it out! 🙂

  18. PowerOverPCOS says:

    @HarperInTheMist If you’re going to have dairy then I agree, raw natural dairy is better. But, whether it is pasteurised/homogenised or not does not change the core proteins in dairy – whey and casein. Whey is the culprit for increasing insulin, and (A1 beta) casein may be connected to increased inflammation & cardiovascular problems (See the book ‘Devil in the milk’). A2 dairy is better, but still has whey which is a problem for pcos.

    this kinda helps I’m 13 and today I was diagnosed with PCOS but I’m really confused about it

  20. HarperInTheMist says:

    Blanket statements about ALL DAIRY are bad science! Studies proving this or that about dairy are done on conventional pasteurized and/or ultra-pasteurized and homogenized milks. Organic, raw, pasture based dairy is NOT the same. I was diagnosed PCOS 19 years ago and it was only after starting to use REAL dairy that I started experiencing health improvements!
