Struggled With PCOS Weight Previously
Francesca (name changed for privacy purposes) is 36, a busy Mother of two young girls that also works in the hospitality industry as a Marketing/E-commerce Manager.
Health wise, she has polycystic ovaries and had always found it a hard struggle to drop the 10kg that she wanted to.
Also, being in hospitality, with lunches and dinners to attend, it was hard to know what were the best food options for her PCOS conditions and weight issues.
Top that off with when she has very busy days (most days), she used to find herself eating the girls’ leftovers from dinner and it was a hard habit to break.
Francesca had followed Yalda on Instagram for a while because she was interested in a healthy lifestyle. Then, she kept reading the countless life-changing testimonials where people were talking about being cured of their condition and losing so much weight.
She decided to join and do the Six Week Reset.
Francesca found it clear to follow about what was allowed on the Eat Burn Sleep lifestyle and appreciated the easy, specific guide to what to eat and do for optimum health.
She found the first week quite tough but after that: ‘pretty okay because you start feeling so great that you don’t miss the unhealthy lifestyle’.
In preparation for a holiday, Francesca did the full six week reset and felt great, went on holiday and stuck with it.
Then, she lost sight of her own health as being a busy Mom and having a busy job took priority, and old unhealthy dietary patterns kicked back in, and she felt dreadful.
She was sluggish again. Her skin became clogged up. The old aches and pains kicked in. She had forgotten about all of her symptoms when she was on the Six Week Reset because they weren’t there anymore.
The memory of how it felt to be without pain and sluggishness made it an easy decision to get back on the Eat Burn Sleep anti-inflammatory lifestyle again, which was a really easy transition!
At the time of submitting this case study, she was back on week 2 and already feeling great and stated, ‘What I like about the lifestyle is that it is a way of life, and there are realistic allowances’.
NOTE: We can often lose sight of our health when we have busy lifestyles (and even when we are not busy), and not put ourselves as priority. The problem here is that everyone loses out if we are not in the best health that we can be, not just ourselves. It impacts: home life, family life, friendships, work life, holidays with people you love, and so on.
If we are unwell, have no energy, have digestive issues, weight issues, depression, anxiety, headaches, brain fog, bloating and the rest, we can’t give the same, and we can’t be the same.
We can often not recognise that we on a path to sickness, as we strive to juggle and fit everything in.
This can lead to burnout, more inflammation, more conditions and symptoms and so on.
Living a lifestyle without any symptoms and expressions of a condition is a happier one. It is also a less expensive one (the cost of being sick is extensive, in more ways than one).
Your health is your most valuable asset and you are helping others when you are helping yourself as a priority.
