  • Hi I have PCOS and have lost 30 lbs in the past 6 months,,,, you need to cut the carbs!! For some reason our body likes to hang on to them,, I also have been drinking a thing called fiber full before I eat! I feel so much better! No white sugar, no white flour and eat all of the veggies and fruit you want,,, good luck momma!

  • metformin is for type2 diabetes. You should be following a diabetic diet and exercising regularly.
