Our expert says:
Thank you for your kind words - they cheer me up no end. It is unusual that you have PCOS without insulin resistance because in most cases these 2 conditions are linked quite closely. You are, however, following a low-GI diet and most of your food choices are already low-fat or fat-free which should reduce the energy content of your diet and thus lead to weightloss. You are also doing aerobic exercise which should help with the weightloss. Did the tests show that your female hormones are ok? if not, this could be hampering weightloss. You can try increasing your exercise to 30 min a day to try and stimulate your metabolism (exercise is still the best metabolic stimulant available), but if you have still not lost any additional weight in 2-3 weeks, then I would recommend that you consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian needs to calculate your energy intake to see if you have reduced your intake to 6300 kJ per day and to monitor why you are not losing weight.
