Back in March, I posted about my decision to actively try Ovasitol. As with all things, I always try to give things "the old college try". All I can say is that I'm doing really well!
I was told that cravings would decrease. Could it be that this could happen - to me of all people? With MY sweet-tooth? YES!!! What?! That's right! I've had a dramatic change in my dear, sweet friend "Sweet Tooth." I try not to ignore my age-old relationship with Sweet Tooth, but when I indulge, I find that the rest of me begins to resent this continued conversation. Sorry Sweet Tooth, but it seems that I am breaking my dependance on you. As much as we have loved each other over the years, the rest of my body needs attention, too, and can no longer withstand being neglected. Sweet Tooth and I will still get together, but not to the extent that we have over the years.
Another change I have noticed is a decrease in appetite. Could it be that a second helping isn't really needed anymore? That's right! My appetite seems to be normalizing. With that, I'm slowly retraining myself to eat more proportionately. When I do decide to go for another helping of that delicious what-have-you, I end up feeling over-full and uncomfortable. HOORAY!!
The next positive change I've noticed by adding Ovasitol to my daily supplements is sleep. I've always been a night owl, but that is changing. I'm finding myself getting sleepy around 10:00pm now. The fact that I ignore the obvious, I force myself to stay awake - I can't miss the ending of that show! Because of it, I do resent the alarm clock going off in the morning - COFFEE!!
I'll be planning my lab work in a few weeks to check my A1C and cholesterol, among the many tests.
In the meantime, and as of today, I've added another new supplement - N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine. Could it be that I, who despises taking pills, decided to add a new one to take every day? It is true! YES!!! With PCOS comes inflammation, and NAC, I'm told, helps decrease that inflammation. Having PCOS also leads to a fatty liver - for the record, I don't want a fatty liver! So, after plenty of research and patience, I decided to take this plunge. NAC, which is an amino acid, works with the Ovasitol, so I know I'm doing a good thing for my body. I'll keep you updated on how I'm feeling with this new supplement.
My initial question on this post has been "Could it be?"
The answer - YES! It is possible.
