After sobbing in her boss’s office, Julie Duffy Dillon, registered dietitian and PCOS expert, never taught another diet. It was then she appreciated the harm of anti-fat bias and couldn’t unsee it. She now helps people with PCOS burn their diet books, regain the energy to live their life and reclaim their power. Together we will change PCOS health care.
“I want you to know that you did not cause your PCOS, and there’s no magic bullet waiting for you, so don’t believe the hype. What works well, of course because people experience PCOS differently, is going to be different for each individual. As someone who has worked with people for a number of years on this I’ve had the privilege of seeing people long term, to see what helps and what doesn’t. You know, there’s some things that will initially help for like 2-3 months, but long term they seem to just make it worse. So if you’re ready for the long haul, you need to make sure you’re eating enough food. And I think for most people who are socialized as women, we’re taught that we don’t need to eat that much and really we need to eat a lot more than we think.”
