    Hi! I have lost 27 kilos in the last year. It seems you are trying to maintain and not lose? I know there are special pcos diets, I didnt follow one though.
    I eat limited perservatives and additives, cut down on caffeine, try and stay away from sugar, i have fruit, raw veg, natural yoghurt and nuts as snacks. I have massivly cut down on bread and pasta aswell and upped my protein.
    I also allow myself the odd treat or I get major sweet food cravings and thats when I pig out.
    I see a naturapath aswell, he has some great nutrition advice.

    Hi mumsrulz
    I have pcos too n I have tried a few different things over the last couple of years. I have found the best thing for me is a low g.i. diet lots of water n exercise! Losing weight definitely helped with things too! My advice.... Keep trying different things until u find something that suits your lifestyle

    Lots of water and exercise are the essential two, apart from that you really need to see what works for you. There are various PCOS diets out there, some are based on the tried-and-true low GI diet, others reduce carbs, and so on. It's really all about doing your research and finding what works best for you.
    Do you have a particular PCOS diet in mind?

    When losing weight in the past I have followed the CSIRO diet- I find it expensive but fantastic. If money is tight I think the high protein- low gi carb idea can be followed without following the meal plans in csiro.

    Definitely a low GI diet for PCOS. My fertility specialist advised me to do this and I bought a little shopping guide made by the authors of the book my doc recommended "The New Glucose Revolution". Lots of info on this site

    Since having my baby I havent been as good eating low GI but I will aim to go back to it soon! It's really not that hard. You can still eat some chocolate

    Hi,

    Yes it is definetly Low GI diet that PCOS sufferers need to try and follow to lose weight. As soon as i cut out 'bad carbs' i find that the weight just drops off me - however i do find it very hard to stick to due to cravings.

    At the moment tho i am struggling to do anything diet/lifestyle wise - i have all the motivation in the world i just cant seem to get started !! i think i need a lobotomy..lol
