G ~ O ~ O ~ D ~ but be EDUCATED! You are going to require your B VITAMINS! So make sure you get your tosh to the store and pack up on a good quality B-100 complex. You should speak with your MD about B-12 shots. I don't eat a lot meat so I have a prescription and give myself bi-weekly shots to make sure I don't become anemic. Also be aware of your protein and make sure you are eating enough. You are going to hear people make remarks about how a vegetarian diet is unhealthy, those people are not educated in this type of nutrition or havenít done the proper research. Like anything you venture in, you must research it.

Personally I choose vegetarianism due to the cruel standards that animals are raised in and slaughtered. The only meat I will eat is locally raised and slaughtered and I know are certified humane. Whatever your reason just do your research and know it is a healthy diet if you do it properly.

going veggies was how i learned about all my allergies to fruits veggies soy and a few other items - so much for that option (good idea to see what i was allergic to or sensitive towards, but a terrable idea to do without my medical team inthe know to start with).

I went veggie about a year and a half ago, with good results. I certainly feel better overall, and haven't noticed any worsening in my symptoms. If anything, I've had a marked improvement--for one thing, my periods are normal and lighter than they ever have been. My pms is also nowhere near as severe. It's not right for everyone, but it works for me. My advice is, give it a try and see how you feel. Keep us posted.

I think it depends on your body chemistry there are some amino acids and vitamins you can only get from meet that doesn't mean that you can't eat the right vegetables and take a supplement to get mos t of what you need and being that PCOS can be so I know a lot that have great success with following the south beach diet and it does not work for me yet I can eat a glycemic natural diet that is a little higher in fat and be just fine

I was wondering if anyone follows a vegetarian diet. If so, is it better or worse for PCOS? I have been STRONGLY considering going veggie, but I don't want my symptoms to get worse/reappear.
