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.

Over the past decade, there have been major advances in our understanding of ovarian physiology. These advances, together with the introduction of new medical technologies, have revolutionised the management of infertility. Patients may expect a pregnancy rate that is no different from that of normal fertile women of the same age, as a result of treatment. Moreover, new techniques of monitoring have greatly reduced the rate of treatment-induced complications such as multiple pregnancy and hyperstimulation.This book presents the current strategies of management for women whose infertility is caused by ovulatory disturbances. Detailed descriptions are given of the optimal method of assessing an anovulatory woman, the selection of the appropriate treatment and the practical details of its administration. There is also a full discussion about the complications of the treatment and the strategies to avoid. The book is intended for all practising gynaecologists involved in the management of subfertile patients in both the developing and the developed world.
