Not enough Low GI diet information
on 7 May 2012
This book is great for explaining what PCOS is, what symptoms you may experience and the best way to deal with those symptoms.
It was great to understand how the condition makes you prone to mood swings and PMS type symptoms occurring at any given time of the month - made me feel less of a head case!
I am hopeful that by following the advice I can lose weight and manage my symptoms long term.
It strongly advises following a Low GI diet and gives some examples of low GI foods, but not enough in my opinion - one of the main reasons for purchasing the book was so that I could get started on a low GI diet. It does give references to websites which contain lists of Low GI foods, but I have ended up purchasing a second book - the Collins Low GI pocket book and will work from this instead.
