I have a bunch of weight loss books, a library if you will, The South Beach Diet, The Zone, Dr. Phil, The Biggest Loser and even one specifically related to PCOS (I can't remember the name because I am STILL sleep deprived). Multiple diet and exercise magazines as well. I have spent several hours researching on the internets searching for the cure all for weight loss, it's totally not in there FYI, because I would have found it. I never did try any of those Cabbage Soup, Lemonade, Hollywood, or the Tapeworm diet. Who in their right mind would knowingly ingest a tapeworm and let it live inside their intestines so they could lose a few pounds? I would imagine you could feel that little fucker moving inside you ......just the thought makes me ill. When I was pregnant and felt my boys moving around it was fun for like the first 10 minutes then it was like get this alien out of me!
I also tried this really expensive protein diet that totally constipated me. Like for 2 months I barely pooped. All that I could muster out was little turd nuggets for 4 months straight not a good time, even though I lost 15 pounds. I gave that diet up after about 5 months of torturous pain.
Now I just stick to the basics. I eat a whole grain, low carb, high protein diet with lots of fruits and veggies. Oh and of course I get my 8 glasses of water in. And I add exercise into the mix as well. All of which hasn't been working so well for me because having PCOS means I am insulin resistant. I heart you PCOS!
