“A number of PCOS women have found success through low-carbing/a low-GI diet, so I was delighted to attend a taster evening at the Savoy this May, where meals included a 180 calorie chocolate ice cream and coffee granita dessert and a filling yellowfin tuna steak on a bed of chinese green leaves.
Most people remember Atkins as the diet that took Hollywood (and in particular the Friends cast) by storm around 10 years ago, claiming to achieve long-lasting weight loss with a low-carb, high protein diet. Indeed, a number of dieticians recommend the Low GI diet, which is similar to the Atkins diet, but with the addition of a few slow-release carbohydrates and wholegrains added to the mix.
- A daily requirement of a substantial amount of high-fibre vegetables
- Tips on how to reduce or eliminate symptoms that sometimes accompany the initial conversion to a low-carb diet
- The ability to tailor the program to individual needs, including variations for vegetarians and vegans
- Ways to smooth the transition from one phase to the next, ensuring the gradual and natural adoption of healthy, permanent eating habits
- The inclusion of small quantities of caffeine
- Tips on how to maintain the diet when away from home and out at restaurants
