I also have PCOS and went to a dietician who basically told me to follow a low GI diet eating every 2/3 hours.

There is a thread on this group called PCOS diet tips. The first post has a list of helpful things for PCOS. I have heard there is a book called the PCOS diet, but I've never read it. I have been slowly working on changing my eating habits and getting plenty of exercise. I haven't followed a specific diet, but tried to eat a lot more fresh fruits and vegetables, and healthier foods. A lot of people recommend that you eat a lower carb diet. I didn't try and restrict carbs severely when I started, just tried to make sure I was getting whole grains and other carbs from better sources (than chips). I am now to a point where I don't feel like I need carbs constantly.

I hope you have good luck with your goals. Spark People is a great place! I also hope you can find a care provider who understands PCOS, because that makes a lot of difference! I suffered for years before I found a doctor that understood and could help me.

Kristen

I am new to this group and relatively new to Spark People too... My identical twin sister was diagnosed with PCOS about 4 years ago. Since this time, I have been monitored by an endocrinologist and have not yet been formally diagnosed, however my symptoms are fairly identical to such a diagnosis.

I noticed several of you mentioning following a PCOS type diet. Anyone care to share some info re: this as well as any books which might assist me in fighting PCOS?

I used to be on Metformin, however quit a few years ago back. Currently, I am trying to find a primary care provider who is familiar with this disorder to begin supervised treatment.

thanks ladies!
