Full marks to your dietitian. I think you are on a very sensible diet and the fact that you have already lost 6 kg is stunning. The only way to treat insulin resistance and PCOS is to use a balanced, low-fat diet which makes use of minimally processed carbohydrates with a low GI - exactly what your dietician has prescribed for you. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that if you have a problem with insulin then you need to avoid ALL carbs - you must avoid highly processed carbs with a high GI (glycaemic index). So carry on with this excellent diet and try to include some exercise - if you put baby into a pushchair and take him/her for brisk walks for 30 min a day if possible- take hubby along if you are scared of walking alone (he will also benefit). Or ask Fitness Doc for a home workout which will help you to control your weight and the insulin resistance - it is really worth it.
Keep up the good work
