This review dropped out of Pubcrawler today. How to get pregnant if you have PCOS.
"Fat should be restricted to < or =30% of total calories with a low proportion of saturated fat"
Of course it must, what else would you expect? Now here's the real giggle:
"High intake of low GI carbohydrate contributes to dyslipidaemia and weight gain and also stimulates hunger and carbohydrate craving"
I'm sure it does, but who would have expected the low fat brigade to realise this? I can't get the full text to see if this is a typo (it MUST be!), but if not, you can't eat fat and you can't eat low GI carbs. Sounds like sugar on your veggie burger is all that's left! The abstract gives no indication of how likely you are to conceive if you follow this advice. I don't think I'd trust it as a form of contraception but...
Of course you could always try living within the limits of your insulin resistance, but (gasp) you might have to eat >30% of calories from fat. This was a pilot study. Only five of the eleven women completed the 24 weeks on the diet. Which diet?
"They were instructed to limit their carbohydrate intake to 20 grams or less per day for 24 weeks"
"Two women [out of five] became pregnant despite previous infertility problems"
For anyone who might not want to get pregnant, you do have to do something more than eat LC for pregnancy to happen... and be female!
