5.0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life, 15 Sept. 2011
This review is from: The Low GI Guide to Managing PCOS (Paperback)
I have PCOS and I've tried everything to lose weight. I've tried eating healthy (at least I thought I was eating healthy), exercise programs, and even weight loss supplements. Nothing helped. I never dropped ONE pound or one pant size. I finally gave up and decided that overweight was just who I was. I had to deal with it and accept it and so did everyone else.

But then I found this book... I've followed it faithfully for about 3 weeks now and I've already lost 5 lbs. That's HUGE for me considering everything I've tried in the past only to not lose anything. The biggest thing I took from this book was to start getting the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables every day. I have more energy and I feel great! And even with just 5 pounds lost, people are starting to notice. For me, 5 pounds was the difference between a size 18 pant and a size 16. I haven't been in a 16 since college and I know this is just the beginning. The weight is coming off so fast I believe I can drop another pant size in the next 8-12 weeks. On days when I don't eat right, I feel sluggish and bloated and often get headaches. I used to suffer with 2-3 migraines a week and I've now gone more than a week without one migraine. If you're serious about eating right, get this book. Eating fruits and veggies requires a small amount of work and planning. I go to the office each day with several containers or baggies storing a serving grapes, pistachios, carrots, or Greek yogurt. But the planning is definitely worth it because I feel better than I've felt in a long time.

This book also helped me realize that, when it came to food, I was allowing myself to eat junk and calling those times "special occasions." Someone at work would bring cookies and I'd think, "Denise only brings her famous chocolate chip cookies about once a month... It's ok to eat one because it's a special occasion." Or, "I've never been to this restaurant before so I better go ahead and get dessert. It's a special occasion since it's a new experience for me." I finally started being honest with myself and realized that I was calling things "special occasions" on a daily basis and sometimes more than once! This book has opened my eyes to so much and I know it's going to completely change my life.
