    I was diagnosed with PCOS/insulin resistance 15 years ago and have been cutting carbohydrates to loose weight on and off ever since. The reason I decided to try this diet is because I have grown tired of high protein, low carbohydrate diets, and the feeling of deprivation they give me, so I was hoping this strategy of eating would allow me the variety I crave in my diet. I’m also very social and hate to be the girl who can’t eat the cake at every party. If I do the 5:2 fasting, do I still need to cut carbs on non fast days to see weight loss?

    Hi pecklez, a sense of constant deprivation gets a bit depressing can definitely chip away at your will power to persist with a diet! In answer to your question about cutting carbs on the non fast days, as a rule reduce them if you can, but dont worry about the odd indulgences. In terms of indulgence, it is Ok to use a bit of healthy fat, like olive oil, to help make food more palatable eg in dressings for salads etc. Fat has little effect on insulin resistance as it is metabolised differently. Do keep let us know how you get on. Your insulin resistance associated with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is likely to respond well to intermittent fasting. Hopefully other associated symptoms will improve too. All the best and I hope this diet works for you. Clare, Mike’s wife (I’m also a GP)
