Hi there,

Firstly in order to treat PCOS you need to follow a diet which is high in fiber, moderate protein and low fats.Also the only cure for PCOS is weight loss.Just foods with low GI would not help.You need a customized diet plan keeping your lifestyle, medical issues and nutritional needs in mind.Meanwhile you can eat
1)Small and frequent meals.
2)Drink at least 12-15glasses of water per day.
3)Stay away from refined foods and high calorie food items.
4)Include at least 2 servings of fruits and 3 servings of veggies in your diet.
5)Limit your intake of oil,sugar and salt.

For more assistance you can surely get in touch with me :) I shall be happy to help you.
