    I'm Tanya, currently following a low carb diet plan but I am going to find it difficult to keep up with this as it does not really fit into a 'normal' lifestyle and will be difficult for me to maintain at my future workplace. Although I enjoy the diet, it is costly too.

    I chose the low carb plan because I have PCOS, and had heard that the diet can be helpful. I know the GI diet also works in favour of PCOS so just wondered if people think its a good idea to change? will I put on much weight? I've already lost 14lb I don't want to put it all back on again :(

    any comments would be appreciated,

    Thank you x

    Well done on your losses to date. I don't see that you will put on weight when you switch to GL. I have read that it is very beneficial for pcos. I switched to GL from TFR and continued to lose well and have maintained my losses. I love GL. I've been a bit relaxed since Xmas so am eating a bit too many carbs but have not gained too much.
    My advice would be to limit wheat products initially. Introduce complex carbs slowly over a week or two. I use quinoa a lot instead of rice / potato and pasta.
    Keep a close eye on your portion sizes. also drink at least two litres of water a day. Lots of luck
