Hi there....I've was diagnosed PCOS 24 yrs ago. I don't agree that you have to eat low carb. I think it's more about the type of carbs that you eat. I just make sure that I'm within the carb range that Spark has given me and I usually lose 2 or 3 pounds a week. However,I HAVE drasitically changed the type of carb that I eat.It is processed carbs that are bad for us with PCOS so now I don't eat any sugar....natural or artificial sweeteners....and I only eat brown rice or bread (portion size of rice is 1/2 cup when cooked) and if I eat potatoes only around 100g or 3.5 oz each time. I try to stay away from packaged foods.
If my Mum didn't want to make me vegetables I'd buy them myself and cook them myself!!! How else are you going to get all your vitamins?!!!
If my calorie intake was too low and I didn't want to take in more carbs I'd prepare myself an omelette or have some cheese.Sometimes I open a tin of tuna and add some balsamic vinegar to it.
You must get your calories up if you stay doing low carb or else you'll make yourself weak and dizzy and will finish your journey to a healthier you before you ever really started.
Wishing you every success
By the way,I eat my recommended carb range as suggested by Spark as I say, and thanks to eating different type of carbs I've lost 68 pounds in 4 months....so you CAN have your bread and eat it
