Many of the up to five million women living with PCOS in the United States face the difficult question: “Will I ever be able to get pregnant?”

On this episode of The Exam Room podcast, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll explores the best diet and foods for women with PCOS as he’s joined by Neal Barnard, MD. Dr. Barnard shares the nutrition science behind food and the hormones associated with PCOS.

Plus, Chuck is joined by Alison Tierney who overcame PCOS by making two big changes to her diet that are almost unheard of in her native Wisconsin. The woman from the land of cheese stopped eating meat and dairy!

She and her husband had been struggling with infertility for years. It wasn’t long after ditching cheese and meat that Alison found out she was expecting their first child!

Chuck also welcomes “The Happy Herbivore” Lindsay Nixon back to the show for another delicious recipe from the Your Body in Balance book—Moroccan pizza!
