|Weight Loss||Do I listen to the doctor? Or...||Jan 07 2011
Always follow your MD, but always get more than one opinion. PCOS is tricky, and sometimes your genes are your genes. My niece who is 12 has PCOS, takes Metformin, and weighs 190 lbs. She has done every nutrition test known to man, and been on many different eating plans. The one that works best for her is a healthy balanced diet, from 1200 to 2000 calories a day. This keeps the sugar in balance and the puffiness down.
I feel your pain, for every woman in my immediate family has PCOS. You need to learn your body and figure out what is best for you. Keep track of calories on the calorie counter, and see what combinations work for you. It can take a lifetime to figure out what is right for your body, but healthy, organic, veggie eating is a good way to go... I so wish you luck!! Remember to get that second opinion...
