I have been hearing many positive things towards Haylie Pomroy's "The Fast Metabolism Diet". She has several books out regarding the diet. A couple are "Fast Metabolism Food Rx: Diabetes and Prediabetes Cookbook and Program Guide" & "Fast Metabolism Food Rx: PMS and Menopause Cookbook and Program Guide". I want to know which one would work better for someone with PCOS?
I was always told to eat more of a paleo and diabetic diet. You know, cut out dairy, gluten things like that. Eat more whole foods.
I did weight watchers and my nutritionist was okay with it. I lost 30 pounds and kept it off so far even since I've been off it. Never heard of those other ones though!
I know it sounds odd, but when i splurge and eat sugary foods i tend to lose weight. Although this is after a strict regime of 900 calories a day. Yesterday i splurged and at a good breakfast ( about 300 cals) then bought a giant whoopie chocolate chip sandwhich. I ate bits of it all day, went to the gym. Finished with a half cup of whole fat cottage cheeses, and today I’ve dropped 3 more pounds. Go figure
Although there is no "one size fits all" diet for PCOS, generally speaking curbing carbs and eating a bit more protein and healthy fat is helpful for women with PCOS. And yes, aiming for low GI foods (I prefer glycemic load -https://www.health.harvard.edu/diseases-and-con...). I detail a moderate carbohydrate diet emphasizing whole foods for PCOS in my book, The PCOS Diet Plan: A Natural Approach to Health for Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome).
