PCOS....fed up of struggling to lose weight!! Until recently, diet was not thought of as an important adjunct in treatment of PCOS. However, since the fairly recent discovery regarding the role insulin resistance plays in PCOS, many experts now believe that diet and weight management should be a part of the treatment plan. In the 5 2 fasting diet you eat normally for five days a week – women consume 2,000 calories and men 2,500 a day – and then restrict your calorie intake for the other two days (500 calories a day for women and 600 for men). And the concept is taking the world by storm. You can adopt 5:2 approaches to lose weight and help you fight PCOS. Either have 2 meals daily out of 5 from this book or you can select any 2 days in a week to eat recipes from this book. Overall, it is the quality of the calorie that counts rather than the calorie itself when it comes to fighting off disease and maintaining health." And it could help you drop a few pounds, too. While it hasn't been studied, the theory is that if your body doesn't get the nutrients it needs, it holds onto to whatever it gets, making it harder to lose weight. Every recipe includes detailed information about calories, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, carbs, total sugar, dietary fiber and protein. These recipes will help you in your daily intake of protein, high fiber and healthy fat, at the same time restrict your calories, carbs and saturated fat. Additionally you also have information about how much % of Calories from Protein, % of Calories from Carb and % of Calories from Fat.
