hi there,
i have PCOS...low carb which includes no white flour, and natural or unnatural sugar and a high protein diet thats the way the weight melts off quickly and effectively.. and i began ovulating every month naturally. hope that helps :)

you star! ive tried ww, laxatives, being sick, 300 cals a day but nothing, im now thinking after a bit of research online high protein, but wanted to hear someone say that it worked for them and not just read all these 'statistics' kinda thing. i dislike veg alot! i hate the taste and texture of it so im thiking frozen veg is ok right? cook it up, spice it up somehow and blend it into soups, close my eyes and down it lol for lunch, it will beat beans on white bread etc. and then for dinners im thinking meats and carrots or meats and 'soups', bacon and eggs, tuna omelettes etc, ill still need a small amount of dairy but ill try and keep it to a minumum like just on my omelette etc and ill start drinking green tea again. ive never done a high protein diet, so im hoping my body will be able to break down these a little easier. What other things do you eat if you dont mind me asking hun? i have about 3 stone to lose, ideally it doesnt matter how long it takes BUT i saw my GP last week and he is referring me back to hospital for clomid but i know going in the there weighing 12stone 7 and standing 5ft4 tall, he will tell me to get out with my obese BMI, so if i could lose a little before then that would be good. thank you hun, you've made my night! x

I too am a sufferer and found that the GIs diet is a better low carb diet. The weight falls off quickly. Ovulation is easier to deal with after the first month.
Hope this helps
