The PCOS Protocol is a 12 week online program created to help you identify your PCOS 'type' or 'root cause' and give you the specific steps you need to take to address that root cause. You are guided through the whole process using our best in class platforms.
The PCOS Protocol is for ANY woman that has PCOS. It doesn't matter whether you are 'lean' PCOS, have acne, hair growth, hair loss, fertility challenges, fatigue or any other PCOS symptom, because we address your personal 'root cause' or PCOS type.
The PCOS Protocol is 100% online. You get your own e-learning portal which has videos, templates, workbooks & more. But that’s only the start: we have a private forum, group calls and online support to ensure you’re never lost or confused.
The PCOS Protocol is definitely not a diet. In fact, we focus on getting out of the dieting mindset. Instead we focus on only the most important lifestyle changes you need to make to address your PCOS 'type' or 'root cause'
The PCOS Protocol helps you identify your PCOS 'type' or 'root cause' and gives you the specific steps you need to take to address that root cause. These steps include food, exercise, sleep, stress, gut health and environmental toxins.
The PCOS Protocol is a live 12-week online program and you can join any time.
Clare Goodwin, The PCOS Nutritionist. I'm a degree qualified nutritionist, exercise scientist and most importantly fellow PCOS sufferer.
The PCOS Protocol is the exact protocol that I developed from researching my own condition and working with thousands of patients with PCOS.
It's the exact program that I would have loved to have available to me 10 years ago. The great thing for you is that you don't have to take 6 years of trial and error, and spend tens of thousands of dollars in university education to figure it out-- like I did.
"I'm a doctor, so you would think with my education that I would have been able to figure out what was happening with my body and how to fix it, but I was none the wiser.
Since doing the protocol I have lost 20 lbs and 6 inches off my waist, lowered my HbA1c (blood marker of your insulin) from 5.5 to 5, my acne has cleared up, my hair fall has reduced, I am not as irritable and I have loads more energy."

The PCOS Protocol was designed using current research, clinical experience and best practice behaviour change methods to help make sure that you know WHY you're making the changes that you are, and layed out in a way that makes it easy to implement.
Each module I explain the research or clinical rationale behind the changes that you're making. When you know WHY you're making that change, it's so much easier to implement the changes.
In The PCOS Protocol we don't get you to remove a whole bunch of foods, take all possible supplements or change every thing about your life. From years of experience, we know what's really important, and we only focus on that.
The changes are spaced so that you're making one small change per week or per fortnight. This makes it easy for you to implement. Then at the end of the 12 weeks, we help you find what changes are the most important for you, and what you can forgo.
The PCOS Protocol combines best in class learning platforms and communication channels. We’ve partnered with the world’s leading educational platforms and community building software to provide you the most effective learning experience available.

What you do each week in The PCOS Protocol is dependant on your personal PCOS 'type' or 'root cause', but here are some of the areas that we cover:
YOUR PCOS TYPE
Find out what your PCOS 'type' or 'root cause. This is one of the first modules you complete. We use both lab tests and symptoms for those that don't have access to blood work.
Optimise your diet for your PCOS 'type' to kill sugar cravings, hangry attacks and inflammation. We only change exactly what you need to and we're all about 80/20
MANAGE YOUR MIND
Managing your stress hormones, the way you think about food and how in tune you are with your hunger and satiety cues are all important aspects we cover
Some forms of exercise are much better than others for treating your 'root cause'. We give you the most optimal exercise for your type and tutorials on how to safely and effectively complete the exercises.
Research based supplement regimens and brand recommendations, based on your PCOS 'type' or 'root cause'
HEAL YOUR GUT
Addressing gut health can be a crucial step for some PCOS 'types' especially if you also have IBS, hypothyroidism, endometriosis or other conditions
"The protocol is the best thing I've ever done. In 6 months I've lost 53 pounds and 20 inches. My anxiety has resolved, I don't get so tired anymore and my periods are now regular. I know it sounds cheesy but I'm a whole new me. But even more importantly ,I now have the strength to get through this and the knowledge to manage my own condition. That's invaluable! The words life changing are cliche, but in this case 100% true. "
- Clare, London
I'd gone off the pill to try to conceive but nothing was happening. Having been diagnosed with PCOS neither my GP nor my gynecologist could offer me any solutions and told me that IVF was my only option. It was my lowest point ever. My periods were 60 days or longer and I didn't know what to do next.
I started working with Clare and learnt that my blood glucose wasn't 'normal' even though I wasn't overweight. Within a month of starting on her protocol my periods were down to 34 days and then within a few months I was pregnant!
- Stephanie, NZ/UK
The Protocol gave me an awareness of myself that I'd never had before. The Protocol provided me a direct path and steps to follow to figure out what was causing my symptoms (the testing and self assessment modules).
I lost 20 pounds and 7 cms around my waist during the Protocol and I have a vast majority of my energy back, which for me is huge. I'm a wife, mother of 2 and a business owner, so life doesn't stop when I'm tired!
- Kristie, Alaska
“Having done the program now with Clare, the biggest thing is that I now have energy! The weight loss obviously (40 pounds). I won't lie, I'm happy about that. But somehow it's been sperceded by all the other things: the reduction in hair growth, having more energy, having my sex drive come back.
I feel like I’ve gotten my life back after so many years.”
- Brenda A, UK
Since starting the protocol I now have an invaluable understanding of what is causing my PCOS symptoms and how to treat it naturally. Clare has helped me find the right supplements, diet, and exercise which together have led to great improvement in my health.
My skin is clear and I'm experiencing less hair growth. I have more energy throughout my day. I had a natural period within 4 weeks of beginning the protocol. I am less bloated and am able to hear my body when it is telling me certain foods do not agree with it. I am so grateful for Clare!
- Alex, USA
After less than a month on The PCOS Protocol I FINALLY GOT MY PERIOD BACK AFTER 2 YEARS OF NOT HAVING ONE (and I never thought I’d be excited to say that!). That was a huge milestone for me! If it wasn’t for Clare’s help, it would’ve still been missing in action!
I also lost a whopping 5 inches! To date, my energy has improved, and I’ve also learned how to listen to my body more in regards to eating. I am no longer just eating food for the sake of it. Instead I am eating based on my true hunger level. I am also finally taking the right supplements rather than just guessing! My sugar cravings have decreased significantly as well.
- Stephanie, USA
After 11 weeks in the protocol, I have learned more information about PCOS, my hair loss, and what I need to reverse it, than any doctor/specialist I've seen in the past 20 years. Since joining the group, I sleep better, I've lost weight (not trying to), and noticed less hair shedding when showering which is a big deal for me.
Lastly and most importantly, joining this group has connected me with a group of women that understand exactly what I'm going through. This is PRICELESS!
- Kim, USA
We had been trying to conceive for years when I started Clare's PCOS Protocol. Clomid had been useless for me, and I was told IVF was our only option.
After implementing Clare’s protocol, it took only 1 month for me to get my period, and then 4 months later I was pregnant completely naturally! I also lost quite a lot of weight, and my energy levels were so much better and I wasn’t hungry all the time!
The protocol also helped our relationship tremendously. Starting a family is supposed to be a really exciting and lovely time, But when it doesn’t happen it’s very stressful.
- Sarah, UK
Before doing The PCOS Protocol, I was ehausted all the time. I was barely surviving the day, and yet my doctor and endocrinologist kept telling me that verything was 'normal'.
Fast forward to week 8 of the protocol and WOW! No longer do I have a constant worry about being a sideline mom. I can play with my child and still have energy to stay up with my husband even after a full day of teaching. This protocol has truly been a blessing for my family. My husband was understanding but I know he was missing time with me. I honestly can’t wait to see what the future brings! I am once again an active participant in my life!!
Thank you Clare!!!
- Tracy, USA
Before starting The PCOS Protocol I had low energy, I was constantly wanting carbs, my periods were ranging from 28-90 day cycles and weight loss was a nightmare.
I now know what foods are triggers for massive energy slumps, which food keep me full and on a level blood sugar, exercise is now enjoyable and part of a routine not a drag to the gym. Most importantly I feel that I am in control of my body and understand what and why things did happen and are happening now.
The people closest to me have noticed the same as I am more positive, not as tired and much less stressed/grumpy. Physically changes have been made as well. I no longer bloat up like a beach ball, I have clearer skin, hair is starting to thicken again, and my blood sugar level is normal.
I have lost 20lb in 12 weeks with my waist dropping from 96.5cm to 83cm
The PCOS Protocol is so much more than an online course, the information you will get from Clare will be invaluable. Do it, you will thank yourself later.
- Kellie-Ann, USA
"Testimonials shown are real experiences from paying users who have gone through The PCOS Protcol. Their results are not typical and your experience will vary based upon your effort, adherance, education, genes, the way your body works and forces beyond our control. We make no claims on any improvements to your body, health or symptoms."
Will this really work when I feel like I've already tried everything?
If you're feeling like this, you're not alone. I felt this and think every woman I've worked with has too. Of course, we can't guarantee any results, and anyone that does should not be trusted! Bodies are all so different. However, what I can guarantee you is that if you complete the modules, you will learn so much about your body and what's driving your symptoms.
"My fear was that it wouldn't work, that I'd fail because I'd failed so many times before and I'd give up.....But this protocol is different because you see the results almost immediately"- Clare
How much time a week will I need?
You'll need an hour a week to set aside to review the video modules and implement the task for the week. But don't worry, it's a self paced course, so if you're away one week and fall behind, it will be there when you get back.
You'll also need to set aside 30 mins a day for cooking. Can you manage that to improve your health? I think we all can. We all have the same 24 hours in a day. It's what we chose to prioritise that makes the difference.
I'm vegetarian/ vegan. Is this program suitable for me?
Yes, absolutely! I put a lot of the focus in the program into you understanding your body and educating you about diet so that you can create your own meal plans and adapt recipes to suit your dietary choices. My philosophy is along the lines of “teach a woman to fish”- if I give you the tools then you can make any situation work, whereas if I just give you a strict diet plan to follow, then it wouldn't be sustainable.
Do I need a computer or can I access this from my mobile?
You can access this from anywhere and on any device! So long as you have a web browser and an internet connection you can access this from any device you like!
Will The PCOS Protocol be tailored to my personal symptoms?
Yes! This is the whole point of the protocol. There isn't ONE PCOS therefore there can never be ONE plan that suits everyone.
As Steph says: “Clare’s program is so relevant because it’s individually tailored to your situation. The whole objective is to find the root cause of your particular case and why you’re not ovulating. And that’s what PCOS is- you need to understand why you are not ovulating”
Will I get support or am I doing this on my own?
You are supported 100% of the way! We have fortnightly video coaching calls and via audio podcast in the alternate weeks. Any quick questions are answered inside the Facebook group or email.
