The Perfect 10 Diet and PCOS

Perfect 10 Diet Question: Can you tell me how this diet would benefit someone with PCOS? Thank you very much for your time.

Thank you for your question regarding the Perfect 10 Diet and PCOS. The Perfect 10 Diet is great for polycytic ovary syndrome also known as PCOS. No one knows for sure the exact cause of PCOS. PCOS is a condition of insulin resistance, together with a high testosterone level. It is estimated that 5-10% of women in the US are affected. Symtoms of PCOS include weight gain, acne, irregular periods, fatigue, excessive body hair, and infertility. Women with PCOS are at great risk to develop type 2 diabetes by 40 % by age 40. They are also at greater risk to develp endometrial cancer.
Doctors treat the disease with contraceptive pills, drugs that increase insulin sensitivity such as Metformin, and pills to decrease testosterone levels such as spironolcatone.
The right diet should be a key part of PCOS management. The Perfect 10 Diet targets several of the hormones affected in PCOS and the condition and supplements are discussed in the book. The mainstream "low-fat/high-carb diet" leads to increased insulin secretions and actually worsens the condition. While low-carb diets address insulin resistance by avoiding carbs, they pose additional cancer risk by encouraging the wrong types of protein choices such as processed meats. Processed meats have been linked to many types of gastrointestinal cancers. The Perfect 10 Diet's principles are brand new and have never been made public before. The Perfect 10 Diet addresses insulin resistance, as well as abnormal sex hormones caused by consuming the wrong types of fats, excess sugar.

By targeting insulin and sex hormones, the Perfect 10 Diet can truly help you and make a signficant difference in your life. However, I do encourage you to follow up with your physician since additional supplements and drugs may be needed. Best of luck and wishes for perfect 10 health.

Thank you,

Starting Stage 1

Stage One (Initiation)
Stage One of the Perfect 10 Diet will last approximately 3 weeks, and most people will lose an average of 10 to 14 pounds during this time. That’s a lot of weight in a short period of time, but don’t be alarmed about your initial results. Some of the weight loss in this stage is water. Later on, your weight will go down at a slower pace. During this stage, you’ll eat 3 meals a day, and you’ll also have the option to eat 1 to 2 snacks a day on the days you work out or if you’re hungry.

To get to this day, to the launch of the Perfect 10 Diet website and soon to the published book, has been a long journey, but one that was certainly worth every step it took to get here.  I am incredibly excited to be able to now share my diet—a breakthrough plan that will help you control health and weight—to a much broader audience.

The Perfect 10 Diet, published by Sourcebooks, will be in stores in mid-January, but my mission to help people, to help my patients, started years ago when I discovered, as a doctor just out of medical school and working in a private practice, that the nutritional guidelines put forth by the mainstream medical community and the government were not helping the patients coming to me with serious chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, elevated cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes, cancer, and obesity.
