I finally got a physical after almost 2.5 years and even though I didn't mention my weight as a concern, the doctor talked about me losing weight and mentioned intermittent fasting. Since I have chronic pain, she said it might help with inflammation. Before making any changes, I asked Michelle-Marie her thoughts... Taking my specific health history into account, Michelle-Marie explained how intermittent fasting could negatively affect my hormone levels and advised against it as a solution to my PCOS symptoms. I appreciate her insight! I'm so lucky to have her in my life!
