Our emotional state can play a huge role in the decisions that we make. Depression, anxiety, body image and self esteem issues are things that many women with PCOS live with, and these can affect the way we choose to nourish our bodies. Rebecca Monhing and Dr. Ruth Wittersgreen share ways to improve nutritional and emotional balance.
Rebecca previously worked as the dietitian for Iowa State University’s Wellness Center. Her work there provided her with the opportunity to work with college athletes, as well as counsel students on weight management and eating disorders. Currently, Rebecca works at the George Washington University’s Weight Management Center and Women’s Heart Program.
