    Default low carb or low GI?

    Hello
    im confused as to what diet i would be better to follow with having PCOS i have the choice to follow either of these diet but when i look for info on them both seem as good as each other. Im on metformin also just incase that would make a difference. I also have a wheat intolerance.

    thanks for your reply...
    the reason i asked was i was always led to believe that PCOS is a metabolic disorder as well as hormonal and being linked to IR which in turn has been proven (allegedly) works best with a low GI diet then again low carb is good for not making your blood sugar spike as well, thats why i am confused as to which to follow i do know any diet would be beneficial however i also know that some diets work better for some than others

    also thanks for the links

    Exactly. It's an individual issue - not one of 'pcos'. I would highly encourage you to check out the links above. It will help to clarify things, quite a bit. Calorie restriction is not important just for 'weight loss', but for it's impact on the labs in many women with pcos.

    I completely agree. I actually do better with low carb rather then low GI. I gain weight very easily. However, if I'm going to stray, I stick with low GI than going complete off my plan.
