Thank you so much for your kind words. Seeing that your present BMI = 41,3 it would be a good idea to lose weight. The diet prescribed by Anne is fine for patients who do not suffer from insulin resistance and PCOS. You can certainly use the basic diet plan, but you need to ensure that the carbs you eat are low-GI (as far as possible). Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The right approach' and read the articles on the GI. Combine the low-GI carbs and fruit with the other principles of the Ultimate diet solution and keep up the good work with the exercise every day. This should produce the desired weight loss. If you find that you cannot adapt this diet to be low-GI, then it may be a good idea to consult a 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), so that she/he can work out a specific diet prescription for you.
