Tallene walks us through her own PCOS journey and how she lost 30 pounds with PCOS while reversing her symptoms!

Tallene was diagnosed with PCOS about 10 years ago and like many Cysters, she was told to go on birth control until she wanted to pregnant. She went to multiple doctors who just told her to eat less and workout more!

Her symptoms of cystic acne, irregular periods, uncontrollable weight gain, and moodiness spiraled out of control until she found the natural diet & lifestyle changes that worked for her!

We discuss how she took back control of her body, how she found the right doctor for her PCOS, and how she went gluten & dairy free to support her new lifestyle!
