The Mom Bod Series
Hop on the Mom Genes magic school bus, because we are taking a trip to middle school health class to get a refresher on a woman’s cycle then stopping by biochem to explore irregular periods, hormones, and insulin levels. We interview Julie Duffy Dillon, RD who specializes in PCOS in her private practice and on her podcasts “Love, Food” and “PCOS and Food Peace” about how to find peace with your genes and jeans if you have PCOS. Julie dives deep into why cutting out carbs and sugar and chronic dieting only aggravates the already inflamed and fatigued PCOS body. We ask Julie to bust the biggest PCOS myth of all: do you have to cut carbs and sugar to manage irregular insulin levels and irregular hormone levels? Julie explains why your body needs these foods and how deprivation increases your symptoms and offers alternatives to elimination diets.
