60 – How to Balance PCOS, Exercise & Hormones
“Every body is a good body, and we have to honor this body that we have. No one ever got anywhere, no one ever got happy, hating it into change. Embrace the body that you have and make it the best body it can be.” – Dr. Brooke
Women with PCOS are prone to adrenal fatigue and hormone shifts, making exercise a tricky, though very necessary, thing. I asked Dr. Brooke, a well-known expert on metabolic nutrition, fat loss resistance and fitness to help us navigate the delicate balance between our hormones and exercise. During our conversation, we discuss what your symptoms are trying to tell you about your work-out and how you can best tailor your exercise to your ever-changing hormones (whether due to menopause, PCOS, thyroid issues, or stress).
Listen as we talk about:
- If you love intense training (marathons, CrossFit, etc.), how can you avoid exhaustion and adrenal issues?
- What testing should we consider for adrenal issues?
- What are your ACES (appetite cravings, energy & sleep) telling you?
- Have you reached metabolic adaptation or stagnation?
