low carb or low GI?
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.
