PCOS without insulin resistance
I am 19 years old and have struggled with my weight for about 6 years now. In sixth grade I weighed 101 pounds and then in seventh grade I went up to 135. Every year after I have been consistenly gaining between 10 and 20 pounds a year. And ever since seventh grade I have gone to some extreme measures to lose weight and nothing has ever consistently worked. I've been on weight watchers, I've done p90x, Insanity, various other diet progams, and I have also tried to just use portion control and eat healthy. I've tried just about everything so, that leads me to believe that there is something that I have no control over that is happening to my body. Finally, when I was fed up with my failed attempts to losing weight my mother suggested that I may have PCOS (not just because of the weight but because I never really got my period)so I agreed to finally see a doctor not because I wanted to get my period but because I wanted to lose weight. When I learned more about PCOS I learned how harmful not getting my period was and the solution was to go on birth control and she also had me get an insulin resistance test. Well when I went on birth control I gained another 20 pounds and the test came back negative for insulin resistance.
Then one night, feeling completely hopeless, I was looking for some tips on losing weight with PCOS and I came across this program. I noticed it focuses a lot on insulin resistance and I wanted to know if even If I am not insulin resistance can it help me? Also, is it possible that I have become insulin resistant since my test or that they just didnt detect it? I do want my hormones to regulate and to get healthy but overall I want to lose weight and my body just won't let me, do you have any helpful tips????
