This program can help you improve hormone balance without dieting.

Thank you for changing my life!
I wish somebody like Sam existed for me 15 years ago to help me learn about PCOS, Insulin Resistance, gentle nutrition, what labs to ask for, how to support my mental health, and not seeing my CPAP machine or lab results as failures. As I finish Sam's program, I feel so grateful to be a part of her community and hear the stories of other people going through their PCOS journey. Not only do I feel ready to let go of the medical trauma of repeatedly being told that losing weight would solve all of my problems I experienced significant understanding and shifts in my lab work. While learning about the Insulin Resistance and gentle nutrition, and physical health, my 3 month A1C (blood sugars) dropped over a point and I found myself with less cravings for sugar while feeling more satiated. I would recommend this group to anybody starting their journey with PCOS and those who have been living with PCOS but received limited medical support. In my best world, every doctor and OBGYN education program would have SAM teach a course. Thank you for changing my life!
I'm Sam Abbott
PCOS REGISTERED DIETITIAN
I specialize in PCOS nutrition because I've worked with way too many clients who had received little to no tools to manage PCOS. “Just lose weight” is not real medical advice!
You deserve to feel your best each day. You deserve to feel at home in your body.
You deserve education around managing PCOS so that YOU can make food choices that make you feel good physically, mentally, and emotionally.
So many PCOS resources out there come from a place of restriction and dieting, even though we know that dieting doesn't work, it harms health long-term, leads to poor body image.
You should never have to feel like you need to choose between honoring your physical health and hormones OR honoring your relationship with food.
You can do both.
It may take some work to repair the damage diet culture has done, but you deserve it.
If you're looking for a soft place to land when you know that dieting isn't the answer for managing your PCOS then
I'd love to support you!

This program will teach you how to...
PCOS Food Freedom
- Let go of dieting

- Reconnect gently with nutrition
- Improve insulin resistance
- Decrease inflammation
- Honor physical health with lifestyle
- Build your PCOS support team
This is a great program if you are ready to put down dieting and just learn to eat
I come from a long term macro/calorie counting background, so it was really scary to transition into intuitive eating because it was the total opposite of everything I had been accustomed to. At first it was really scary, and I was worried I might make my labs worse, but in fact SAM WAS RIGHT, everything improved. My A1C improved quite a bit which was amazing, I was able to enjoy outings freely with my family without counting or tracking and really just engage in life without having the focus be on food. This is a great program if you are ready to put down dieting and just learn to eat.

"For me, personally, the best thing about the program was the way Sam married scientific knowledge about the biochemical nature of PCOS and an anti-diet approach to language and care. I loved being able to have a deeper understanding of the way PCOS works while also having tools like gentle nutrition to incorporate in my own personal management plan. The program is presented in such a way that I was able to design my own care plan, that worked FOR ME, knowing that I was bringing a clinical understanding to my approach (as opposed to randomly copy/pasting other peoples' anecdotal accounts)."
"I had a few "light bulb moments" during the program where I realised the way I was feeling was actually connected to PCOS. When I was diagnosed I was told "lose weight and come back when you want to get pregnant". Sam helped me realise that I need therapy to address my anxiety and to let go of what I think I "should do" surrounding food and exercise. My blood pressure hasn't spiked at a doctors office the last couple times I went, and my A1c dropped from an 8.1 to a 6.8 in 4 months! The best part is that it feels very sustainable because I don't feel like I am doing anything - just living my life!"
