Welcome to the PCOS and Nutrition Blog!
Education is key!
The PCOS and Nutrition Blog has been created for women who are suffering from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). It provides easy to understand information to help women educate themselves about their condition. It is based on evidence from medical studies as well as personal experience.
Take your time and explore our collection of posts ranging from nutrition tips and lifestyle advice for PCOS sufferers, such as optimal recipes, diet tips and supplements, as well as general information on fitness and nutrition for everyone.
The PCOS and Nutrition Blog was created for educational purposes. This website does not offer or replace professional advice. Any information provided on the site should not be substituted for professional medical advice, examination, diagnosis or treatment. The site offers information provided by articles, research but also the bloggers own opinions and personal experience dealing with PCOS. Therefore, always seek the advice of your doctor before changing your lifestyle, through, altering your diet, exercise routine, starting a new supplement or treatment or making changes to existing treatment.
At PCOS and Nutrition, I believe in being honest and open with readers. I feel that it is important that I mention that I am affiliated with several companies.
This means is that if you decide to buy a product following a path from this site, I will make a financial commission.
Thanks to PCOS activists, advocates and famous women speaking out about PCOS, there has been an increase in awareness about the condition. The increase in awareness is not only helping PCOS become a recognised condition, but it also helps reach women who are currently suffering from PCOS know that they are not alone.
The surge in the number of diets around results in people having a distorted idea and perception of food. People have lost sight of what real food is and why we eat. While I am a huge proponent of flexible dieting and living a lifestyle with no restrictions, I still firmly believe that food quality matters.

There seems to be a new diet and food myth every day. New diets are constantly being thrown around telling us that this diet is the best. When this constantly happens, it is understandable that consumers become confused with what really is good and bad, and what you actually should be eating. It is time to put an end to the food myths and get to the truth about nutrition.
