I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), can I go on the OPTAVIA Program?

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproduction age. Typically, PCOS would not prevent someone from following the OPTAVIA program. In fact, the OPTAVIA Program may be particularly effective for those with PCOS as it incorporates several recommendations for PCOS treatment, such as achieving a healthy weight, incorporating regular exercise, taking an omega 3 dietary supplementation, and following a carbohydrate-controlled meal plan.

The OPTAVIA Program is designed to help you achieve your optimal weight, while increasing your health, confidence, and vitality so that you can create space for a bigger, more fulfilling life. The Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan® is our most popular program for weight loss, but we also offer other programs to accommodate individual needs and preferences. 

Talk to your OPTAVIA Coach to learn more about our meal plan options, and then contact your doctor prior to (and throughout) your journey with OPTAVIA to discuss your health-related goals as it relates to the OPTAVIA Program.
