Full Episode transcript:

So after all these months, some would say years of our garden coming together, we finally cultivated. Yeah. A tomato, two tomatoes, two tomatoes, one for a sister, one for a Mister, For those who have maybe a new listeners for the last year or so, we’ve been trying to build like a garden, but we had so many obstacles.

For example, we were attacked by aphids, which destroyed our jalapenos and like, yes, Yes. And that there were squirrels digging up soil and just causing a mess. Everything was rotting because we don’t have enough sun. Yeah. There was like flies coming in and taking over all the dirt. It was basically, It was a mess every night would go out to garden and slay the dragons.

That’d be organic. You know, we’re trying not to use like harmful stuff. Like when I’m using neem oil, which is like an organic way to control, like, you know, insects and stuff. So it’s not as effective. So I have to work around the clock around the clock, really leaf by leaf node by node. I don’t know what to even do anymore.

And right now I’m barely maintaining three tomato plants. Like it’s going okay right now. But like every day, every other day, I’m like putting these things. You should See his face when he’s spraying that in the morning, she has concern Searchie. And when I wake up in the morning, some days it’s like a broken branch. I’m like, gosh,

darn it. It was, yeah. It just wasn’t supportive in the right ways. I guess I’ll tell you one thing. It was the best tomato of my life. Yeah. I can’t believe I just said, gosh, darn it. I want you to become so PG Since we started your podcast, I guess so. All right. But with that being said,

today’s episode today’s episode is about PCs and the metabolic dysfunction behind peace USA basically all explained personally. I think this is a great episode we’re telling is going to really go into the science. She’s really, really well Versed in metabolic dysfunction. Yeah. Well, I got to tell you, it is very helpful to know these facts so that when you’re making guide and lifestyle changes,

you can actually understand physiologically what it is doing for you. And you’re not just doing this fufu thing that you heard about, you know what I’m saying? So you might be wondering like many other, why is it so hard to lose weight? What is the problem here? Sometimes we feel like our body is broken and that’s not the truth. We are not broken,

but our metabolism might be in struggle city and falling apart, but we can fix it. It’s going to be okay. It’s not permanent. Like if your metabolism is too low or there’s something going on, The body has an amazing way of healing itself, which I just think is something you should always know. Everyone should think this is what your body can heal itself.

You can reverse your PCs symptoms. So, you know, many of us we’ve Googled things. We’ve found information about PCOS and we’re told to change our macros or reduce our carbon, take our calorie intake and work out more. Doc knows it. When we met, I was working out like crazy boxing spin classes. Yeah. He tried to show me the slow weighted workouts.

And I was too busy trying to run around the gym. But you know, this type of method of weight loss is so common. It’s told by our doctors. And I honestly feel like this is one of the most inefficient and oversimplified ways to lose weight. Like just work out more and cut your calories. It’s inefficient over simplified. And I’ve honestly never heard of anything,

literally anything so ineffective in my life. I can’t believe they’re teaching people. This it’s like, it’s like so archaic. Like it’s all about metabolism, hormones, how your body is your genetics. Things like this. It’s nothing to do with calories, unless, you know, you’re starving yourself. Then some people might lose weight that way and others, they don’t,

they gain weight when they’re starving. I mean, even if You do lose weight that way for a little bit, a little bit period of time, is it really sustainable or is it going to come back once, you know, revert to your normal day-to-day life? You know, it’s not easy being, doing restrictive stuff. No. And it breaks your metabolism further and it makes the uncontrollable weight gain happen even worse.

So in essence, it’s like temporary fixes that are like further breaking your metabolism and then making it harder for you to lose weight. So metabolic dysfunction, it’s basically when the body’s not processing energy properly, or you’re not storing your energy properly. Like for example, you’ll find yourself dealing with stubborn weight as a result of metabolic dysfunction. It’s, it’s not because of the calories.

Once again, it has to do with how your metabolism is working. And we’re just handed like pharmaceuticals and told to cut calories. And we want to change this narrative around PCLs weight loss, because we want to help sisters and doctors and anyone who’s listening to understand what’s happening with the metabolic and how we can reverse that. Yep. So if you get healthy,

the weight will come off naturally. And this is only possible when you reduce your inflammation and you’re improving your blood sugar control and you, you know, whether or not you have a thyroid problem, these are all metabolic signs and that you need to address in order to have natural weight loss so that you’re not constantly thinking of weight loss, you’re just functioning throughout your day and your body’s doing its job.

Yeah. So I hope I’ve broken that down. Well, It’s, it’s amazing. And like you said, if you can help improve this with inflammation and blood sugar control, and I think it’s, it’s important. That’s like dive deep into that. Like it kind of explained that the process behind why the inflammation is impacting the metabolic dysfunction, why blood sugar is so much important,

your managing your insulin resistance and speaking of inflammation, I always love to kind of explain what inflammation is because I feel it’s such a common term, but not everyone really knows like what actually inflammation is and whether it’s good or bad or what it does. So for those, I’m wondering what inflammation is basically imagine a, well, there are two types of inflammation there’s acute and chronic.

Imagine if you were to hit your elbow against the wall or something, and there’s a cut or it gets swollen, basically your body sends your body, sends blood cells to the area to go ahead and protect the area and make sure that there’s no further damage. That’s why the area gets swollen and red. And basically there’s inflammation happening. That’s acute. But chronic is when this inflammation is,

is ongoing and consistent. And basically there are multiple battlegrounds of inflammation happening in your body. And one example of this, as you know, when you eat gluten, we’ve talked about in the past, how it can cause a leaky gut and Cosby, it Causes inflammation in everybody and some more than others. So of course, everyone doesn’t have a crazy reaction to it or any reaction at all.

But while others do, I mean, there’s studies that literally show that zonulin that’s released in your stomach when you eat gluten and how, you know, it causes the tight junctions to loosen up and these little tears to appear so that the gluten gets through and then causing chronic inflammation, knots in your bloodstream. So this is what happens, I mean, to a certain degree,

depending on the person. So yeah, so there’s, so there’s much we can do about inflammation. We hear about so many supplements that we can take so many things, so many specialties and, you know, there’s all these like tea detoxes, things like this, that reduce inflammation and you know, some good, some bad. Yeah. So basically the more weight we gain,

the more our fat cells become larger and they store toxins and estrogen. And the more toxins that are stored, the more inflammation that we have and the more inflammation we have, the more weight we gain, because that is causing metabolic dysfunction. So we start producing less fat burning hormones. Like adiponectin when we have a lot of inflammation as well. So that,

that can really make you feel like a weight plateau is happening. Yeah. So all this inflammation, it disrupts your cells function. Not only is it releasing adiponectin, it’s also causing more insulin resistance. And so this, oh my gosh, could I talk for an hour about insulin resistance leads to weight gain? And it’s an absolute mess for our immune system.

So it starts with the inflammation. Now, now we have a blood sugar problem. Now the insulin hormone, isn’t able to give the cell, the sugar from the bloodstream to burn for energy because the cell is numb to it. It’s inflamed. It doesn’t want to communicate with the insulin hormone. And here we go with insulin resistance and then you’ll start feeling fatigue,

hangry attacks, moodiness, you know, you’re hungry. And then suddenly, you know, you eat and then you have a blood sugar crash and you’re hungry again. And just you’ll feel like you don’t have endurance while you exercise too. And it also manifests as acne painful cystic acne. So insulin resistance can trigger a high testosterone and that testosterone can gather around the hair follicle and the SI bum oil gland,

the oil gun next to the hair follicle can overproduce oil Siva. And that causes cystic acne because it’s like inflamed. Yeah. And so for those wondering, like how to reverse hair loss or, you know, facial hair and things of that nature, that’s basically what time just explained there it’s hyperandrogenism, which means elevated male hormones, which in most cases for women with PSUs is caused by insulin resistance.

Cause that insulin resistance causes the overproduction of testosterone in the body. So that’s where a lot of the, of the root causes are for the hair loss or facial Hair. Exactly. I mean, look at how your metabolic health affects all your symptoms all the way down to the facial hair, acne and hair loss. Did you hear about that sister who took opacities and finally got her period after a year of not having one Incredible.

I see those kinds of messages on Instagram a lot. How does that even happen? Acetone helps with healing, insulin resistance, a common root issue that most Pecos sisters have. And by targeting insulin resistance, we’re seeing sisters kick those crazy cravings. Finally regulate their periods opulate and improve their ed quality. Each packet of opacities has a 41 ratio of myo-inositol and de Cairo.

And NASSA tall. This ratio is similar to the ratio that should be found in the body. But with women like me who have PCOM, this ratio is often imbalanced. So taking a bus tall can be super effective in treating insulin resistance, starting from the root of the issue. So Awesome. It tastes like nothing. So just warn me when you put it in a cup.

So I don’t drink It. You got it. BU check out the link in the description to get 15% off. All right, babe, let’s take a moment to correct our posture. Take a deep breath and have some pure spectrum CBD. Sure. Hey, sisters CBD can help with acne inflammation, anxiety asleep, and so many other PCs symptoms.

So with having blood sugar issues and you feel hangry, hangry attacks, this is a sign, a major sign of metabolic dysfunction. Like your body is so dependent on the sugar that it receives from the food you’re eating when you’re eating it, that it’s not able to tap into fat stores for energy in between eating periods. So like when you’re not eating your lunch or your dinner in between lunch and dinner,

if you’re having hangry attacks and you constantly have to eat snacks, I mean, this is a sign that your metabolic dysfunctions happening in your body. Isn’t able to shift from glucose burning mode, which is from when you’re eating to fat burning mode, which is when you’re not eating. Because when you’re not eating that insulin hormone is nice and low. It should be nice and low.

And that’s a sign for your body to burn fat. But with insulin resistance, it’s still high. You eat your body releases insulin so that you can store what you eat into your cells, burn it for energy and the cells are resistant to it. So the insulin remains high for long periods of time. And while the insulin hormone is high, it is blocking fat burning.

Very so I just wanted to clarify. So when you eat, when you’re eating, your body should be burning glucose. And then when you’re not eating, it should be fat Burning. Interesting. That’s true. And it all has to do with what your insulin levels are. So your insulin is high when you’re eating, you know, that’s fine, that’s your metabolism working.

And it should be low when you’re not eating. And that’s when the body shifts into fat burning mode. And when you don’t have good proper insulin control, then you’re not able to do that. And you gain weight uncontrollably because you, you feel hangry. You like you’re gonna die. If you don’t eat a snack or something, you know? Yeah.

And I’ve been there. They say, don’t eat any carbs. Not that you shouldn’t need any carbs. I’m just saying like, that’s the shortcut piece of advice people give for metabolic dysfunction and weight loss. Oh, cut your carbs, go keto. It’s like, okay, that’s really extreme. You don’t need to do all of that. You could take, sorry.

I didn’t. Oh, facets. You could take those a real genuine, genuine. So you could take over acetone with your meal to help improve your ability, ability to metabolize what you’re eating your, a blood sugar control. And you can also lower your carbs a little bit, but not extremely, just a little bit. And I mean, there are so many other things you can do it.

You can go gluten and dairy free, like gluten will reduce, go gluten-free will reduce your inflammation and going dairy-free will help reduce your insulin levels cause dairy really spikes insulin levels. And so there’s just, there’s a plethora of things you can do to help with blood sugar control. And I’d like to point out slow weighted workouts as well. Yeah, because for me,

if I stop weightlifting, those hangry attacks will come back after a while. So yeah, To, to mention that like basically the, when, when you help increase lean muscle, it really helps with insulin sensitivity. There’s basically more storage for glucose and it’s helping to manage the sugars in your bloodstream and basically helping to convert them to energy instead of them converting to fat.

So it really helps with insulin resistance. And one thing to keep in mind too, is when you’re going on Cartier runs, it’s always important when you have insulin resistance to keep them 30 minutes or less. Because when you go really long and intense, what happens is your body dumps a lot of sugar into your bloodstream. And when you have insulin resistance,

you’re not able to convert that into energy as efficiently. And what happens is some of it gets stored as fat and then you don’t get the results that you’re looking for because of that. Yeah. I mean, yeah, it is difficult to apply all these diet and lifestyle changes like tomorrow, you know, wake up and be perfect at gluten dairy free and do a slow way to work out.

It’s just not feasible. It takes time to adapt to these things, but knowing this information is super helpful and also taking a supplement to help you in conjunction with these diet and lifestyle changes, like taking over us at all, you know, can really kickstart this insulin sensitivity journey and help with the weight loss process because you are targeting the metabolic dysfunction that has been stopping you from losing the weight.

So, yeah. And For those wondering, we have a 15% of code for basketball. We personally like, I mean, most of the, you know, basketball is a sponsor for the podcast, but it’s something that Tallinn was taking like years ago before even this podcast started because she trusted It, got my period back, you know, it helped with my symptoms of hangry attacks.

Yeah. I just, in my mood change, like my cravings, 15 minutes after I took it. And I mean, when I started promoting it on Instagram before we were even affiliates, I was getting DMS from people saying like, oh my God, this is the best. This helped me with all these things and so on. And I was like,

wow, like it’s not just me. And so we just, we always have to talk about it when we talk about insulin resistance, because it has been so helpful for people you started taking like what five, seven years ago? Yeah. A while ago. Yeah. So yeah, for those interested, we’ll put a 15% off code in the podcast description.

And again, it’s the best when you combine it with diet and lifestyle and yep. Can really help with insulin resistance. Yeah. So basically healing, metabolic dysfunction is trying to make ourselves function properly. And we’re trying to make our digestive cells and insulin hormones work proper properly. And like we mentioned, there’s so many things you can do to help with that.

And we are here to help you apply these diet and lifestyle changes and talk about, you know, it on the podcast and what we do to manage my PCO S SeaTac Cedex life revolves around Sydney, but he is supportive and he does enjoy a good gluten-free pizza every now and then that was so good. I mean, shout out to Sage who knew Stacy page,

when you like My kids age one day By name, actually Sage for your kid. Yeah. That’s a pretty good one, but Friday It was so good. Pumpkin seeds and a sprinkle of course salt. Is that what it’s called sea salt. Yeah. No, no, not the thin, not the small granules of Seesaw. It’s the coarse salt from whole foods.

The attention to detail. Sidak it ha it has to, yeah. I’m sorry. Very important details. You know what this making a gluten and dairy free pizza. You guys, I mean, we’ll talk about it in another episode, but I can really, I can make a whole episode about how to make the best gluten and dairy free. Why not?

We should, it’s all about the topic. Anything we should do a whole YouTube video about how to make a good endeavor for pizza. I mean, we kind of show it in our, in Our membership, the recipes, then We show it there, but we also, you know, we could, we could do something. We could do something.

Yeah. That’d be fun. Or do like an Instagram live where we just like, like, like a Martha Stewart, like Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg were just like making a pizza together, smoking or something, you know, we’re like just making a whole pizza together anyway. So are we going to move on To the DMS? Let’s talk about the DMS. I asked sisters was metabolic dysfunction explained to you before you were,

I mean, when you were diagnosed or before in the past, it was actually 8%, only 8% said yes. That metabolic dysfunction was explained to them. And of course, 92% said, no, that’s a huge majority. Yeah. I Mean, I think that 8% just happened to stumble upon us before they got diagnosed with CEO’s and that’s how they knew.

Yeah, no one’s talking about it. Yeah. Yup. All right. So mad. Yeah. And then we asked the question, how was PCO as explained to you? We asked us on Instagram, if you don’t follow us on Instagram, it’s at PCO S dot weight loss, P C O S dot weight-loss. We have daily tipster everyday, but anyways,

we asked you, how was PCs explained to you? And first response was from Zach healer. She said it was never figured it out as I went along and still learning a lot. Thanks to your page. Aw. That’s awesome. So glad you you’re enjoying the page and learning from it. That’s the whole point. I mean, that’s why we have all those posts.

Yeah. Daisy Mae. She says it wasn’t really explained just if you want to have kids, then you might need medication. Well, that is not an explanation. And whoever said that to you. Yeah. It’d be referred straight to me. It was the keyless at the same thing. She said it was never. And that’s just like, not fair,

you know? Like you should be explained, especially like when it comes to birth control and stuff, it’s never explained properly. So like shocked at how it’s not explained at all. I Can’t. Well, I mean, they’ll scare you out of it if they actually told you that. Oh, you take birth control is the only option. Yeah. Yeah.

You want to say that it’s a Fake period. It’s not a period. Like it’s crazy. Explain the aspect of it. You’re basically shutting down your entire hormonal system and letting synthetic hormones run you for 10, 15 years until you decide to get off of it from age 16 to 30 Know, and again, it’s okay if you’re taking, like, if you want take birth,

you’re in choice. It’s going great. That’s totally fine. It’s not that we’re not saying no one should take birth control. All we’re saying is like, it shouldn’t Be explained that, but It should be explained, Hey, if this is birth control, it can help you. But just know that it’s not a real period to just explain that, that’s it.

So at least the person knows. Yeah. And you know, what’s the worst part of it. Yeah. You know, since we’re on a tangent about birth control, they don’t even tell you, Hey, try this birth control. See if it helps with your symptoms. Yeah. They don’t tell you like, oh, if you have suicidal thoughts or if you have,

you know, depression and anxiety, while on the pill, be very mindful of your mood and your, your body and your aura. And is your weight going up exponentially every day? Are you gaining a pound? Like this type of disclaimer? I did not receive. I’ll tell you that much. Totally dangerous. All right, let’s go. Okay.

Where were we? How was PCs explained to you? Next answer is from who I like this name, whole food hipster. She says the doctor just said, it just said it would be hard to get pregnant. The doctor just said it will be hard to get pregnant. I mean, that’s not enough, you know? I mean, not everyone is interested in getting pregnant at that point.

Not everyone Wants to get pregnant. So we will just one, the thrive symptom free for the rest of their lives. Oh my God. Okay. Sally says nothing. Just take birth control because you have cysts in your ovaries. So you have PCOS. See this. I can understand if you have dangerously large cysts and they say, take birth control.

It’s going to help reduce the size. Okay. You know, if that’s the case fine. That’s what they said to me. I was on it for like a year or something. And then I was like, okay, what’s going on? We need to figure this out and get off of birth control because I didn’t want to be on it forever.

In exit plan is ideal. You know, inflammation, insulin resistance, all trigger ovarian cysts. So once you get that under control, why would you have ovarian cysts? Right. So NACA NACA says lose weight and take birth control pills. Come on, come on, doctors. We could do better than that. We can do better than yeah. The Alicia version says that I need to lose weight and control blood sugar,

that my weight was causing it all. Well, controlled blood sugar is a great piece of space Or needing to lose weight. It’s not necessary. You can just, The weight will go away. If you heal the metabolic just function and the blood sugar issues. Yeah. Connie Mattos says birth control would help regulate your periods again. Yeah. And just to go back,

just, I’m sorry to Alicia, she said that my weight was causing it all. Yeah. When it’s, when it’s like the other way around, it’s the blood sugar issues and metabolic dysfunction that can cause the symptom awaking. So just, just wanted to clarify that too, and yeah. Not your fault. Yeah, absolutely. And yeah, Connie made us at birth control would help regulate periods.

And again, we just talked about that. So yeah, we hope that kind of clarifies that situation with birth control. And we do have an episode actually with Dr. Jolene Brighton and she’s like an expert when it comes to birth control, she wrote a book called beyond birth control. She talks about one how to get off of birth control, but to also how to manage your diet and lifestyle when you’re on birth control.

So she gives you two different aspects. So I highly recommend that book and I highly recommend our episode with her. You’ll see it in our feed. That’s right now, before we get to our wins of the week, which is our sisters who are, who have, you know, done have great big wins in the recent past, we actually will be playing.

It’s hard to talk when I’m looking at my phone, I will be playing a voicemail from our hotline. If you don’t know, we have a hotline at one eight, not at, but the phone number one eight three three, ask PCO S 1 8 3 3, ask a S K P C O S. And you can leave a voicemail or you can even just send a text message with either,

you know, how we’ve helped you, or just a question that you want to ask us to be played on the podcast. So here is a question for today. Hey guys, my name is Jillian and I wanted to ask a question about dairy. I know that we’re supposed to be dairy free, but I’ve also read some things that possibly other than cows milk that we’re allowed to have,

like sheep’s milk cheese or goat’s milk cheese. And I just wanted to see what you guys thought about that and how you feel, or if we shouldn’t have any at all, no matter what animal is. Thank you so much. Bye. That’s a great question. Thank you, Julian. Yeah. So with goats milk, cheese, or goat’s milk,

it is actually shown to be less inflammatory than cows milk. However, everyone is different. Everyone’s a reaction is different. So what I would do is cup everything dairy related out first for 30 days, and then see if that helps you in any way. Yeah. So maybe your skin will clear, maybe your moods will be better. So on and so forth.

Then add back in the goat’s cheese or goat’s milk and see if your symptoms come back. And if they don’t, then you can probably tolerate it. But you know, if they do, then you probably can’t. So yeah, it’s really depends personally. Yeah. And some people have said that, or studies have shown that, you know, gold smoke does have less hormones in general compared to cow’s milk.

And, but you know, like Ty and said, you don’t really know how it’s going to impact you until you cut out for 30 days. And then if you’re going to re-introduce it with cold smoke, you can kind of see how that goes. But yeah, that’s a great question. All right, let’s go to the winds of the week. So again,

as I mentioned, these are sisters who are managing their peace, us losing weight, and just basically thriving with their feet. Yes. These are from our DM box. Where are the names? The names aren’t here. Cut off. I don’t know. I’m so sorry. Oh, okay. I’m going to describe the picture in the DM. The picture in the DM,

it looks like is a, is a sister with her arms around her. Mister they’re looking at each other. The Mr is wearing a black shirt while the sister is wearing what seems to be a vest with a white, long sleeve underneath. I hope you know who you are, sister. And she says, I’m not one to share usually, but I just need to thank you both.

You have changed my life. I have had no period for the last year and more. It has been one month of taking ambassador hall, switching my workouts and cutting out dairy and gluten. And today I got my period for the first time in a long time, my mood is better and I am physically feeling better. You guys are life savers. Thank you.

Thank you. Thank you all you are so welcome. It’s amazing. I wish I knew your Instagram handle. I don’t know why I got this. Yeah, But that’s so it makes me so happy to hear sister. I’m so happy that you got your period back and you’re doing all these, like Following our method to a T and the Diet and lifestyle approach.

No, not doing things are restrictive or things that, you know, maybe unnecessarily just following a diet and lifestyle that’s working for you. Yeah. Okay. Our next sister has gorgeous hair in her profile. Picture brown hair and a blue sweater. It seems. Yeah. Hi. It looks like she Has her eyebrows are on fleek. So looking great.

Hi. I have never had a painless period. I was on birth control for about a little over a year, but started taking them as taught in conjunction where I took it for four months. Then I built up the courage to stop birth control and just take over Tom and my first period without birth control and only Avesta was so painless. I can actually go to work and not call out sick.

This stuff really works and I’m not even fully gluten-free yet. Thank you for all your help. You’re so welcome. And I’m so happy for you. Yeah. And it’s like a symptom that we’ve heard so many from so many sisters and like how like, like, you know, it’s so hard to manage, you know, when you’re going throughout your day.

So yeah. So great to hear that shit. She improved that and got better. I chose three wins this week. I usually choose two or oh no, No, no, no. That’s a thing. Okay. Yeah. There’s three. Okay. All right. Well the next sister, she has also what looks like long hair, long hair with like blonde highlights.

What is that? What’s called the hairstyle. Yes. Okay. All right. It looks like she’s wearing like a pink sweater with a dark background. So I hope you know who you are. She says Tallinn. I started my period yesterday without birth control all natural. Oh my God. I haven’t had a period in over a year and I haven’t had a natural period in over five years.

I’m so in shock and can’t thank you enough. Or basketball’s amazing gluten dairy, if you’re amazing and you’re amazing Tali. You’re amazing. But yeah, it’s just that, you’re amazing, Honestly, like that’s great and Awesome. I love hearing this. Yeah. Especially, you know, like in her situation she didn’t have a natural period and over five years,

you know, like how, like how that can feel like can feel like a very long time. It can feel like Almost like it’s a possible whole year. Yeah. So It’s a great inspiration for anyone who feels like it’s impossible or it feels like they may never get to where they want to get. I think this is exactly why we read these winds of the week to inspire others,
