Hello I have just been diagnosed with pcos and I’m struggling to find what I can and can’t eat.
Is it true to be gluten free sugar free and dairy free? Any help will be appreciated thank you
Hi I believe the pcos diet as I call it is different for everyone especially when trying to loose weight.
I wouldn't stress over the dairy, cut down on the sugar gradually and as for gluten it's very hard and expensive to go gluten free. I just traded white for brown bread and rice, and ate whole wheat and whole grain foods and cut out white potatoes including crisps I at sweet potatoe instead.
This worked wonders 4 me hope it does 4 u too
Okay thanks so much for your help. I’m so confused on what I need to do so that has helped me no end. Thank you!
My endocrinologist recommended cutting down on sugar and only eating bread, pasta or potatoes once a week. I am allowed rice but I'm not sure why. I also eat cous cous assuming it's similar to rice.
Thank you! I think I may be thinking too much into it I struggle with my weight the most and most diets haven’t worked for me. Will try that thank you!
I have struggled with my weight too, since October I have ditched dairy, gluten and sugar. By making my dinners from scratch without said ingredients I have lost 1and a quarter stones (although, had a slight break for xmas)
Now drinking tea without milk.
But have tried normal diets but this works best for me. Lots of fresh veg generally fried in olive oil & water with spices. I add fish, chicken or some other meat. I love buckwheat and Quinoa. Or just old fashioned meat and veg like in the old days. I avoid processed food and have lost weight since I am not eating it. White bread and rice is quite carby which raises insulin levels quickly. I find it doesn't fill me up for long whereas buckwheat does. I could be wrong but I think my hair is growing better? But facial hair is the same. 😢 X
I thought that would be the case I’ve tried everything so far and just seem to find nothing works thank you! Xxx
Hi everyone, I’m currently working on some research around how women with PCOS search for information...
