Sonam Kapoor pens her PCOS story, shares diet tips for her fans
PCOS is a common problem affecting 1 in 5 women. Yet, there’s not a lot of awareness about the disease and it’s only fairly recently that we are seeing the conversation pick up on social media. Actress Sonam Kapoor is one, who is making news, opening up about her long battle with PCOS.
Sonam, 35, who has been very vocal about her struggle with weight gain has been suffering from PCOS ever since the teenage years. In fact, there was a point in her student days when the actress weighed close to 80 kilos. An unhealthy lifestyle, diabetes only made matters worse for the style diva. The actress once admitted that it was a push from her mother, Sunita, which made her change her lifestyle for good.
“In all fairness, it was my mother who helped me get rid of my excess weight. The first thing she did was to keep me off the stuff I was so fond of as a teenager- chocolates, ice creams, fried foods and sweets.”
While Sonam has managed to have her weight in control, she still struggles with hormonal imbalance and PCOS. However, she has managed to find her way through and focuses on holistically improving her health after years of rummaging through fad diets, medicines and workouts.
