Our expert says:
It is excellent that you are eating low GI foods for your PCOS and doing plenty of exercise - well done. I would advise that you consult a Dermatologist for your acne because if diet alone is not controlling your acne then you may require additional treatment which the Dermatologist will provide so that you don't develop scarring. 4 cups of coffee a day are not regarded as harmful, and cutting out coffee will not affect your skin. You can also drink rooibos or green or black tea (with milk) as they are all rich in antioxidants. Warm fat-free milk is also an option (low-GI, very low-fat content. Generally speaking meat, fish and wholegrain cereals are rich in zinc, just select very lean meat and stick to low-GI cereals.
