Leah's Intermittent Fasting and PCOS Journey [50 pound weight loss + OFF medications]
Leah recently shared her experience of Intermittent Fasting with her history of PCOS and Hashimotos in the private AEN Facebook Group... and her story is too incredible NOT to share with everyone!
Leah's story has weight loss involved, yes -- but that's only a fraction of her story. Her various wellness achievements along the way are life changing. I'm so proud of you, Leah!!
"I purchased the 21 day IF bundle a little over a year ago, and have lost 50 pounds since then. It's not a dramatic weight loss story that some people have, but it's HUGE for me. I have PCOS and Hashimotos and have always had an extremely difficult time losing weight and gaining muscle. I've been able to stop my medications for PCOS and insulin resistance as my hormones have leveled out. Autumn Bates' Program is the first that has ever worked for me, and I'm never going back.❤️"

I'm Leah. I work as a Registered Nurse. I love animals and nature, hiking, and traveling.
Which Intermittent Fasting Program were you following?
I started with the 21 Day IF bundle, then did the level up guide.
What was your main wellness goal with the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle?
First of all, weight loss, but along with that came endocrine health, and improving my PCOS symptoms.
Did you have any hesitations before you got started?
My main hesitation with starting was the fact that I was working nightshift at the time. So It was difficult to constantly be shifting my eating window from daytime to night time. But I sat down at the beginning of each week and strategically scheduled each day according to my work schedule, and eventually found a method that worked for me.
What has been your biggest wellness win?
Definitely the weight loss. But a huge reduction in PCOS symptoms and the ability to stop some of my medications.
What has been your favorite recipe from the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle?
It's really hard to say, but probably the LA street tacos!
Did you have a "nutrition nerd" moment?
