The Low GI Guide to Managing PCOS by Professor Jennie Brand Miller
PCOS is a difficult syndrome for doctors to diagnose, but for the one in five UK women who suffer from it its symptoms can be debilitating and depressing; they include weight gain, difficulty conceiving, mood swings, excessive hair growth, acne, low energy and irregular periods. Low GI foods address insulin resistance - the underlying cause of PCOS - as well as being a scientifically proven way to lose weight safely and keep it off. In this easy-to-understand guide, the authors explain what PCOS is and how to recognise and get it diagnosed, guide you through low GI eating principles, and provide the tools to help you create and stick to a healthy lifestyle and a low GI diet. This is the definitive, scientifically sound guide for anyone who needs to know more about living a healthy life with PCOS.
