So I have been trying to lose weight recently and I have failed quite miserably. It turns out I have been eating the wrong foods.

I have PCOS, and for years didnt use birth control. I have always had irregular periods, sometimes going a year without them. I read online that I should avoid Glutenand red meat...I cut out gluten and all meats for 3 months...Bam, I was pregnant, lost weight and felt amazing. 3 years later I tried the diet again, Bam! Pregnant once again. <3

I have two daughters who have PCOS. My younger daughter was on Clomid and second amount fell pregnant and luckley fell pregnant second time with no help. My eldest daughter has been on Clomid and injections with no success. Because her partner has grown up children she cannot get help with IVF. She is s nursery nurse and loves children so much. She so depressed and trying to loose weight very difficult. I really don't know what to do. The hospital have signed her off because IVF she just does not have that kind of money please help.

Did you cut out all carbs? Or just replaced with gluten free options. Like rice, oats etc?
