I was diagnosed with PCOS about 3 years ago. I've found that avoiding starches has been incredibly helpful. The other foods that bother me, and other PCOS'ers I've talked to, tend to be anything high fat. So I avoid full fat dairy, pizza, and fried food almost entirely because I notice a huge difference in my well being when I eat those types of food. When you do eat carbs, try to pair them with a protein. It helps level out your hormones and hunger responses.

There are tons of great resources out there, but a dietician was very helpful for me.

I agree with sunshine and others who recommend educating yourself about carbs, blood glucose, and insulin. The truth about grains is definitely available, well documented/researched, and worth reading.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

It is not necessary to avoid gluten, but consuming a reduced amount of carbohydrates will help you. Avoid sugar, white flour and white rice. Most of your carbs should come from whole grains, vegetables, dairy and fruit.

Eating at the low end of your Spark-recommended range for carbs is a good place to start.

Hopefully your medical provider has provided a referral to a Registered Dietitian with your new diagnosis. If not, contact the office and request one. They can help you with meal planning guidelines specific to your needs. In the mean time, this information related to Type 2 diabetes can be very helpful to get you started.

The above site also has a section of recipes.

Many doctors consider a diabetic diet to prevent complications of your PCOS so call your health care provider and do get a referral to see a registered dietician... meantime go real easy on the typical staple foods like pasta, potatoes, bread...eat lower carb vegetables that are also full of vitamins and digest slower so that you don't end up with high blood sugar. High amounts of salt and sugar are bad too. Rye Bread does not spike blood sugar because of the way sugars are absorbed into the body.

Educate yourself about basic nutrition components like carbs, fat, and protein

With your recent diagnosis did they refer you to a dietitian as well? That's really who needs to be recommending your diet going forward, as they have your medical history and the knowledge to work with that. Honestly, a message board just isn't qualified to help with managing medical conditions.

Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.

I was recently diagnosed with PCOS and have an insulin resistance. What foods should I be avoiding for a better and healthier diet? Should I avoid gluten, or is that not necessary?
