I am the probably the lone person in this group for whom it is relatively "easy" to lose weight.
Not that it's not hard work, It just seems to happen much faster for me than the majority of people with PCOS. (My main weight problem seems to be that I gain it superfast)
When I lost 80+ pounds 2 years ago (before I knew I had PCOS), I did it through frequent exercise, and reducing my calories. In trying to eat healthier, I gave up most junk/fast food (all those processed carbs), and switched to multi-grain on everything else (whole-grain breads, pastas, and brown rice).
So I think that really helped my Insulin Resistance, even though I didn't know about it at the time.
What I DO know is that whether you have PCOS/IR or not, what really makes you successful is getting back on the horse when you fall off. Ultimately, if you have more "good" days than "bad" days, you are moving in the right direction, and eventually you healthy, inches, and weight will reflect that.
