Hi. I am Dr. Felice Gersh, your host for the PCOS SOS Summit. I want to share some great news. I have created a course just for women with PCOS, and I cover the six most common issues that women with PCOS face. For this particular talk that I’m giving to you right this minute, I want to talk a little bit about one of the topics, one of the modules that will be part of my course. Issues of weight. Now not all women with PCOS suffer with overweight and obesity, but 80% do. And guess what? The so-called lean women with PCOS, that doesn’t mean they’re in great shape. In fact, when they do body compositions, they find that they are not in optimal shape at all. They have a significant percentage of their body as visceral belly fat, liver fat. So even when they’re thin, it doesn’t mean their body composition and their health is optimal. So even for those women, that 20%, they still need to hear this module because you don’t want to carry excess inflammatory fat on your body. It promotes not just a feeling of, you know, low self-esteem but it is metabolically unhealthy fat and it increases your risk of many cardiometabolic illnesses. And I’m going to deal with all of that in my module on PCOS and weight. It’s all about poor quality, functioning, and abnormal distribution of fat in the body of women with PCOS, both in that 20% and the majority 80% that are actually officially overweight or obese.
