With my PCOS I don’t struggle with missed periods and I have already been blessed with children. In my case, I struggle with the emotions, bad mood swings and lately anxiety and depression. I was always tired and had headaches, so it was easy to just lay on the couch. I wanted something more for myself and my family, I wanted to live life!
Then I found Jumpstart. I found by thinking more positive it has made me happy again and, in turn, made my family happy. Also trying yoga made me realize how relaxed I feel after and helped with my anxiety. After the detox, I could feel my body begin to heal. I also realized I was feeling guilty about ‘cheating’ and now that I allow myself to indulge I don’t necessarily feel like I need to. If you are considering participating in this Program in the future, I say take the leap! It’s so worth it! I now feel like I can do this. I know how to feel good and how to maintain that feeling in the future!
Before the 7 Day Jumpstart, my hormones were a mess. My periods were few and far between, Metformin did nothing for me and I felt like my body was completely out of my control. It was sort of depressing. I finally made the decision to sign up for the Jumpstart Program and it was so worth it! Through the 7 Day Program I learned I liked eating wholesome, nutritious foods I wouldn’t even consider trying before. My family was excited to have new and different things for dinner each night and it was a great bonding experience. All of us feel better. I took my stepson out for dinner at the end of the program and he ended up hating what he ordered. He liked all the healthy food we ate all week. We are all better for participating in the Jumpstart.
Now I just feel so good. I thought I was doing a decent job of eating “healthy” before this Jumpstart, but being so picky about what I put in my body was just what I needed. I haven’t craved pizza, dairy, sweets or any of my usual weaknesses. I also got my period, which is like a miracle for me and as a bonus I lost a few pounds. The whole experience was awesome for me.
I was on the fence about signing up for this Program for a while, not wanting to spend the cash. It was the best money I have spent! I feel so much better than before. You get great support from Amy and the other participants during the whole process and it’s nice to see that other people out there are having similar issues. The best part for me was bringing the whole family together for dinner each night and really enjoying the meals. We all loved the food. It was delicious and satisfying. I now believe food can heal. I will say this, you only get what you put in, so you have to commit to the cause, but the results are well worth it!
Amy, I just wanted to say thank you for helping me change my life! I no longer look in the mirror and shake my head or pick myself apart. I smile and feel successful!! Since joining PCOS Diva Jumpstart back in September I have lost 20 pounds! I look at food differently! I think about what it will do to my body, how I will feel after I eat it, and ask myself if it’s a helping food or a hurting food. I feel so accomplished for powering thru the holidays. I was able to maintain my weight which almost never happens from Thanksgiving to Christmas. I no longer feel out of control with my PCOS and infertility. I have longed to take back my life…and I have thanks to your amazing program! I now find myself talking about my PCOS and infertility struggles with many other women and it feels great to help them see that your life isn’t over when the doctor says you have PCOS.
Amy, thank you for opening your heart and life to us. Thank you for teaching me to love myself and not hide in shame. You are truly an inspiration and I feel so blessed to have found you!

Before I found Amy and PCOS Diva I suffered from many of the terrible side effects of PCOS including fatigue, stomach/digestive pain, brain fog, depression, anxiety, excess weight, irregular periods and infertility. Throughout this Program I found more mental clarity. I now have more energy which has helped me to be a better wife, mom and business owner. I love the meals and shopping list – everything is delicious and the plans help save me time.
I’m truly thankful for and admire all the hard work Amy has put into the PCOS Diva website and Jumpstart Program. I have a renewed hope and confidence from what I’ve learned about the PCOS Diva lifestyle. The personal support from Amy and her team are a key part of the program. They are there to guide and encourage you every step of the way.
Thank you for sharing your wealth of information, resources, and supplement offerings. I trust that the supplements I’m purchasing and taking everyday are the best quality because I trust Amy’s research and recommendations. You are truly a blessing to many, many women!
Everything in my life has changed since completing the PCOS Diva Jumpstart Program. My mind is clear, my body is strong, and I feel better than I have in 10 years. This Program changed everything about my life for the better in just 7 days. I learned how important it is to care for me.
I realized that if one of my children or my husband had PCOS I would have been doing this Program long ago. I would tirelessly research what was good for them and I would do everything I could to help them live their best lives. Why wasn’t I willing to do that for me? I thought I was being selfish by taking care of myself. I now know the opposite is true. I was being selfish by not taking care of myself. My family needs me. Now they have a healthy mama, and wife who is energetic and engaged.
They love the food I make from the meal plans and are moving with me. This program is a gift.
I would say your protein powder is the best that I’ve had. It is not gritty at all. As for the supplements…I’ve had a cycle for the last two months. I haven’t done that in years without help. I am currently out and I was going to order today. That is the only thing I don’t like is that it is a little pricey and we have to pay shipping every month for them. Maybe a bigger bottle so we don’t have to order as often. It’s been great!
Prior to signing up for Amy’s 7 Day Discover Your PCOS Diva Jumpstart Program I had been trying to figure out my PCOS on my own and it was overwhelming. Now I feel amazing! The meal plans are such a crucial part of the Program. When people suggested a whole foods diet, I often wondered what that meant, but having the actual plan and recipes are wonderful. The information shared and the lifestyle changes are so important. For years I felt like I was piecing together things that may have helped my PCOS symptoms, but now I know I’m on the right track. This week was so comprehensive it helped me to feel empowered.
This Jumpstart Program opened my eyes on how to advocate for myself with my health and how to move forward in caring for myself. After over 10 years of trying to figure out how to best manage my PCOS (i.e. birth control or no birth control, dairy or no dairy, gluten or no gluten) I finally feel confident that I am ready and able to move forward!
I signed up for the Jumpstart Program because I was feeling hopeless on the fertility front. It was great to connect with other women going through similar issues, I didn’t feel alone anymore. Throughout the Program I saw an improvement in my mood as I feel much more in control and less stressed. I am now managing something that no doctor could help me manage before. My advice to other women is it is worth the time to take care of yourself. Amy’s Discover Your PCOS Diva Jumpstart Program gives you the tools you need to get started.
Finally, someone has discovered how to manage this condition and it is such a breath of fresh air to be able to be a part of it. It is worth it to jump start your health!
Thank you so much, Amy, for becoming the PCOS Diva. I imagine that this is not a role that was easy to grow in to. But your struggle is helping so many women to live better lives.
I recently started taking the Essentials Bundle and I feel like a new woman. I had no idea how important Vitamin D is to my health and happiness. Going from a surly office drone to someone who is humming constantly is amazing. And the newfound joy is inspiring changes in my home life.
I am so grateful to have found you and the wonderful products you offer. And although I have a way to go, I am excited about the journey.
Before I started Sparkle I was tired, depressed, anxious, unmotivated, I had brain fog, I was obsessed with food all the time, and felt like I had no control of my life. I knew I had to do something to change my life and Sparkle came at the right time! During Sparkle I found myself again, I started to have more energy, my depression and anxiety vanished. I didn’t have brain fog, I felt in control of my life, and I didn’t obsess about food like I had in the past, I also lost 8 lbs in the process! Everything about this Program was beneficial to me. It took me a couple of days get used to the shakes and supplements, but then I thought they were awesome. I found the information I received from the daily lessons were eye opening. I could not have done it without support from my husband, Amy, and everyone else doing it with me. I am so thankful that this Program came into my life when it did. I recommend you try this Program and find your Sparkle! Thank you Amy!!
Oh my gosh!! I absolutely love Amy’s Meal Plans. My husband and I love the meals, and I have lost 15 pounds which is an average of a 1/2 pound a day! I have so much more energy. I feel great, my skin has improved, and I don’t feel tired or foggy around 3 in the afternoon. I love that the dinners and sides have common ingredients, like OJ or cumin, etc. We have had so many favorites. We loved the Cajun shrimp, Horseradish Encrusted Halibut, Caribbean Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Blackberry sauce, the grilled salmon, the lemon chicken, and so many others. At first, I didn’t like that the weekends were not planned, but I figured out that with our busy life, and so many leftovers, I was able to make some things on the weekend that I couldn’t get to during the week, but had already purchased the ingredients. Since using the Meal Plans, I really feel empowered to make better choices both when it comes to food choices, and also when I get cravings or I am feeling weak.
I found pcosdiva.com as I was trying to search for answers to why I was feeling the way I did with PCOS. Finding Amy’s website has made such a difference in my life. I have felt so much more encouraged and empowered since doing Jumpstart last June of 2015! Today I am so much more informed from the articles and listening to the awesome podcasts available.
Now I am using the PCOS Diva products, and they have made me so much more capable of dealing with myself in everyday life!! These products have exactly what my body is lacking and the guess work has been taken out of trying to figure out what I need! Before I took the Essentials Vitamins I could tell my body was just not getting all of the minerals I need with my diet alone. After starting the vitamins and then running out once, I could tell what an amazing effect they had on my entire body, including less joint ache, and leveled out hormones just to name a few! Thanks, Amy, for all your hard work and all you do for women! Keep it up!
Before the 7 Day Jumpstart I couldn’t get focused. I knew what I needed to do to get healthy but I just couldn’t seem to do it by myself. I needed the support group and I needed a coach. I already miss my morning pep talk from Amy!
My husband has already commented on how much lighter I am…and I’m not talking weight! I smile more and am trying to see the positive things in my life versus focusing on the negative. I’m also approaching problems head on rather the stewing which makes me unfocused and participating in negative behavior/thoughts. I’m doing more to celebrate me and am learning to say no to things I don’t have a real interest in doing or will take away from “me” time.
PCOS Diva helped me cut through the clutter to focus more clearly on what is important for a woman with PCOS: clean and healthy living, both physically and mentally. There is so much more to PCOS than diet so if you can commit to two weeks of learning how to reshape your thought process into the PCOS Diva lifestyle with a coach that is supportive yet realistic, then you will come out the other side with life skills that will help you for years to come. It truly was life changing. Thanks Amy!
