Submitted by Angie Fri 01/21/2011

I’ve known I had PCOS for over a decade. What I didn’t know until just last year was the connection with Binge Eating Disorder. There is a blog talk radio show coming up that explores this important topic and you won’t want to miss it. Monday, January 24 • 12:30pm – 3:30pm Location www.blogtalkradio.com/incystforhormones Created By inCYST Programs for Women With Polycystic Ovary Syndrome This broadcast will occur at 12:30 pm Eastern time. If you cannot tune in to the live edition, it will be available for download at the same URL later the same day. You’ve been told to eat more protein, eat less carbohydrates, watch your glycemic index, and reduce your calories. But how many of the people who are helping you with your PCOS are addressing what is really getting in the way of your success–the binge eating? Binge …eating disorder has real explanations, ranging from biochemical to emotional. And there is real help.
