Re: Newly diagnosed PCOS
Metformin seems to treat everyone a bit different. And PCOS in general make it hard to combat the excess weight, unfortunately. Because PCOS screw with our metabolic system, it can make sugars and starches build up and make it hard to lose weight.
Now, that being said, I've talked to others and most of them say the same as my doctor. A high-fiber, low-sugar diet, low carb usually is the best option. The fibre will keep you full and the less sugar the better, because the PCOS body just doesn't process it well. Lots of veggies and whole grains.
Personally, I find a low carb, high protein diet works the best for me on the Metformin. Fatty foods make me really sick.. as so a lot of other weird things. I hate Met.. but it does have it's benefits.
