    Disadvantages of PCOS Diet?

    Hi,

    Iíve been on the LE Diet for 5 weeks now and starting very slowly losing weight (from 59kg down to 57kg), but this fluctuates and I havenít lost any weight this past week. Iím going for a walk of roughly an hour and a half most days.

    Iíve never been diagnosed with PCOS, although Iíve had issues with mid-cycle bleeding for a couple of years that doctors put down to hormones. I have always eaten a very high sugar diet.

    My question is, as Iím unsure if I would be suitable for the PCOS diet, would there be any disadvantages to going on it? Like it can be bad news for a sway to be on the normal LE diet if you have PCOS without realising, but can it work the other way around, that if you do the alternate diet and didnít need to, it would be a problem?

    I don’t think so, it’s just that the PCOS version is harder to stick to. If you think you have tendencies towards PCOS it makes sense to me but I’m sure Atomic will come along with better knowledge and advice

    The PCOS Diet is right for you. It gets better results and I would actually put EVERYONE on it, but a lot of people would lose weight too quickly on it, and it's harder for people to stick with. No one is harming their sway by doing the alternate PCOS-type diet.

    yep it's harder for people to stick with, it's more expensive and some people can't always afford to do it, and the real kicker is that many people lose weight super fast on it. Otherwise I'd have everyone doing it.

    Ah okay. Does that mean I have to do another 12 weeks on the alternate or just count my 5 weeks on normal LE towards it?

    And am I right in saying that itís same calories as LE, but 50-60g of fat and protein, wholegrains instead of white pasta or bread, and fruit in place of refined sugar? Or have I missed something?

    no, just count it toward the full time. You were still eating lower protein, fat, and calories and 7 weeks is plenty of time for the alternate diet to change your blood sugar.

    Yes, all that is right, but remember to have full fat dairy, no skim, (avoid skim dairy like the plague!) and also that you count the calories in fruit and high carb veg only do not count them towards your protein and fat totals. Low carb veg are free and limitless, have as much as you want, no need to count anything in them.
