Join other women with PCOS in four interactive group sessions designed to help you lose weight and improve your fertility while giving you the knowledge and skills to manage your PCOS for a lifetime.
Did you know:
- The food you eat directly affects your hormones; changing your diet can help you ovulate and have regular periods
- Insulin is a growth hormone that can make you gain weight and store fat. Learn to manage it, and you can curb the weight gain and start to lose weight

This program has been designed by and is delivered by me, Tara, a registered dietitian. You will learn all about PCOS and diet and why hyperinsulemia can make weight loss so difficult for women with PCOS. Come prepared to make changes to the way you eat and the way you understand food. Come willing to get in touch with your feelings about food and about your weight, and most of all, come ready to learn to live a healthy vibrant life with PCOS that includes ovulation and regular periods.
In our four weeks together, you can expect to lose 3-5% of your body weight without feeling hungry and deprived, and establish habits that will help you reach and maintain a healthy weight for you. Through weekly 1.5 hour learning sessions, we start the journey of change with a 2 week meal plan and then we spend the second 2 weeks planning our own meals, sharing what’s working and what’s not, and learning about life long healthy eating habits. Sessions are recorded so that if you miss one, you don’t miss out of the information, and you can access the recorded sessions whenever you want.
The meal plans are healthy and nourishing but simple enough so that those with little cooking experience can participate without feeling overwhelmed.
Next session will be offered Thursday evenings in April, starting April 7th, and ending on April 28th.
