There is something new one for me to consider now. Let me tell you the background. I have a three 1/2 month old daughter and I am 36 years old. It took me 5 years to get pregnant with her. While I was in the hospital delivering her, a doctor there gave me her opinion that she felt I had PCOS. And while I still have to get all the testing done to be sure, I am pretty sure I do. I just fits. My husband and I would like to have one more child. But given that I am 36 years old, I can't wait another 5 years. So, I did research and given that new information, it seems that a modified low carb diet would make more sense to me.
Here are the reasons it would work for me:
- It fights the super strong sugar cravings (part of PCOS, I have them super strong)
- It helps to combat the insulin resistance (I always had this but it is also a part of PCOS)
- It will help to regulate my hormone production
- It will help me lose weight which also helps with PCOS
- It works with my carnivore husband's way of eating
- Due to the fact that my husband's diet is always high in protein, it actually is easier on my budget than having to add my low fat, high fibre foods on top of his list of foods.
- Knowing that I have issues digesting fat, I will watch the amount of fat in my recipes. It won't be low fat, but I will avoid those dishes extremely high in fat.
- I will work on ways to increase the amount of fibre in my diet while still sticking to the low carb way of eating.
