PCOS & Yoga for weight loss
I've been doing yoga for 3 years, haven't lost a single pound. I have stopped doing yoga for 6months.

2 months ago I found out I've always had PCOS. I started metformin, haven't lost a single pound, probably because I haven't really been keeping up with my exercise. I am very much ready to commit to exercising.

I was wondering, did yoga along with metformin help your weight loss? I have gained 20 lbs in the past 2 years, very desperate to get rid of them......

Hi there!

Metformin may help with weight loss. Yoga is a mild form of exercise and may help in toning the body but may not be as effective for weight loss as other aggressive forms of activities. For best results, along with the medications; it is advised to follow a diet plan and rotate between various physical activities such as running/ jogging, gymming, swimming, yoga, aerobics, pilates etc.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
