Live a Healthy, Empowered Life with PCOS
Does this sound familiar?
"For me, food seems to pack on pounds, cause breakouts, or lead to more intense cravings."
"It's hard to tell when I'm truly hungry or full."
"My sweet tooth is out of control."
Meet Adrienne Inger and Laurie Dunham,
PCOS Specialist Registered Dietitians
We are PCOS specialist dietitians with lived experience - we both have PCOS.
We teach our clients everything we wish we learned when we were first diagnosed.
Experience less cravings and improved energy
Learn which supplements do and don't work for PCOS
Cultivate a relationship with food that is enjoyable, nourishing, and non-restrictive (bye bye eating with worry, overthinking, and guilt!)
Discover your body's natural weight - because weight "control" should not be a constant battle between you and your body
Our non-diet approach can help you:
Restrictive diets are NOT a necessary treatment approach for PCOS
Our PCOS specialist RDs can help you learn:
The truth about nutrition and carbohydrates for PCOS
The food combinations that work for YOUR body and make you feel your best
Supplements and other strategies that may improve symptoms
STEPS TO WORKING WITH US
1) INITIAL APPOINTMENT
The initial counseling session with either Adrienne or Laurie is a 90-min virtual session over zoom.
Our PCOS specialists help clients develop eating patterns that are simple, individualized, non-restrictive, and sustainable. They also coordinate with health care providers (physicians and therapists), review lab work, make recommendations for supplements, sleep hygiene, self-care, and enjoyable movement as needed - as all of these factors contribute to hormonal health. In sessions, we will also work on body image as well as disordered and/or emotional eating issues if they are present.
You will also receive a guide to PCOS non-diet nutrition, "The Symptom Relief Plan for PCOS" written by Adrienne Inger RD.
2) FOLLOW-UP SESSIONS
Follow-up sessions are 45-min virtual sessions over zoom. Your PCOS dietitian will revise your support plan and find additional strategies to fit your unique body, medical conditions and emotional needs and circumstances.
PCOS is a treatable condition and restrictive diets are not necessary for symptom relief!
