Our expert says:
If you suffer from PCOS and insulin resistance (IR) then it is essential that you use a low-GI diet to control your blood sugar and insulin levels so that you don't develop type 2 diabetes. Discuss your slow weight loss with the dietitian and the dr who is treating you for the PCOS because you may need to take a medication called Glucophage to assist you with weight loss and insulin control. The fact that you are doing regular exercise is very valuable because this also helps to control your IR. Make sure that you concentrate on doing aerobic exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, spinning, and brisk walking), rather than working with weights and exercise full out for at least 30 min a day or 60 min every second day.
