I also have PCOS and take Metformin. What I've had work best for me, is to stick to fruit & yogurt for breakfast, grilled meat and steamed veggies for lunch, and more grilled meat and a salad for dinner (lunch & dinner are pretty interchangable). I severely limit things like potatoes, rice, pasta, & breads. Snacks are either fruit or veggie with cheese. Beverages are almost always water or skim milk.

I try to eat clean most of the time. I don't eat soy often because its usually heavily processed, but I eat LOTS of broccoli, yogurt, and cheese. Not much plain milk though. Try experimenting with seasonings and marinades to keep things from getting boring.

I feel your pain. I spent years and years researching PCOS. I recently was put on Metformin as well and so far I have been losing a few pounds. I have heard wonderful things about low carbs and low sugar diets, which is what I am on currently. I think the biggest thing is, listen to your body, what does it like, what doesn't it? Avoid processed foods and try to eat loads of fruit and veggies.

PCOS can be hard and frustrating. I have batteled it for years, frustrated at the scale and thinking I would never lose weight.

But lots of exercise, a clean diet and Metformin have helped recently.

Check out my blog at findingaskinnierme.blogspot.com/ I write a lot about my experience with PCOS and the obstacles of losing weight!

Hi everyone,

I am a PCOS newbie. Been on Metformin for a week and a half and have awful nausea and loss of appetite. So I'm still reading up on my condition and I see where I may need to change my diet and exercise routine.

Any pointers? What worked for you?

I'm thinking of seeing a nutritionist but want to do some research first. I saw where I should eat more natural and I'm still trying to understand the whole insulin resistance thing. I read I should avoid milk, broccoli and soy.

I have been eating better and exercise for a little while now and came off the pill and not losing any weight. My frustration is what led me to look at my hormones and ask my doctor for tests. I had a fibroid removed 4 years ago and knew that that had messed up my hormones and I started having hair on my chest and chin. emoticon
