i like the pcos diet book, too. also, i read in another book, called ultrametabolism, that its not carbs that causes insulin resistance and other metobolic problems. healthy, whole grains and whole fruit and veggie carbs are fine. its the processed sugars like hfcs and artificial ingredients and such that damage the metabolisom. as long as you are eating healthy portions of good carbs throughout the day and balancing them with lean protein and healthy fats, you should be ok.
furthermore, you should be eating enough healthy calories to fuel your body. restricting calories makes the metabolism stop working because it thinks your body is starving. add a 0 to your weight, and eat that many calories of healthy foods.
its been working for me!
Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.
If you have to tell someone how bad you want it, then you haven't shown them how hard you already work for it.
Whether you get what you want isn't what defines you. It's how you go about your business.
