One of the classic side-effects of PCOS can be chronic fatigue, which, in turn, may make it even harder to cope with stress from the multiple responsibilities of work and home life.
In fact, feeling frazzled can start to feel normal and many women turn to fattening high-carb food while seeking comfort from the stress. Unfortunately, this only causes weight gain, which then increases the fatigue and the stress from PCOS.
Your adrenal glands keep releasing stress hormones like cortisol and adrenalin, which impair mitrochondrial function. So you eat more, sleep fewer hours and burn less fat,  setting yourself up in the process for low energy.
Fight back with a balanced, nutritious diet and regular exercise, which, in a surprisingly short time, can have a rejuvenating effect via weight loss, more energy and better sleep.
