Prior to getting pregnant, I followed her prescribed diet very closely, and I felt a lot better. Then I got pregnant, and while I tried to eat healthy, I certainly didn't follow her diet. Now that Bridget is here, and my body is trying to get back to "normal" (I'm not sure if it ever will be), I've decided that I really need to go back on this PCOS diet. And so the other night I was reviewing the packet of info my Dr had given me, and reading the list of things I am to strictly avoid. And it left me wondering what in the world I used to eat!
I'm to stay away from:bagels, non-whole grain bread, cake, candy, cereal, chips, soda, fruit juice, cookies, corn, crackers, dried fruits, fast foods, flax products, fried foods, grapes, high fructose corn syrup, honey, hot chocolate, chocolate in general, ice cream, pancakes, pasta, peas, pineapple, popcorn, potatoes, pretzels, processed foods, red meat, white rice, salad dressings, soy products, table sugar, waffles, and watermelon.
On top of that, I'm to eat protein, healthy fat, and a complex carbohydrate at each meal, along with 2 snacks containing a healthy fat and a complex carb.
Soo...any tips on what to eat besides chicken, string cheese, apples and peanuts? Pretty sure that's what I lived on before!
