Raise your hand if you’ve been curious about how you can have more flexibility with food and PCOS. One of my former clients, Veronica, joins me for today’s episode about how she wanted to have a better relationship with food, finding food freedom, and how she is now approaching nutrition with the care of a specialist to manage her gestational diabetes.
Veronica begins with sharing her personal PCOS story, learning that nutrition is connected to so many things that affect our well being, and shifting to supporting herself with a non diet nutrition approach has improved her quality of life. Then, Veronica shares about being diagnosed with gestational diabetes, where some of the recommendations from her specialist are rigid, and how she has learned to manage what her body is needing and communicating. Last, Veronica gives very thoughtful advice for anyone who is feeling fear around pregnancy and gestational diabetes.
Not interested in pregnancy or gestational diabetes? You’ll still want to tune in to hear about living life with PCOS and having less restriction around food.
