We have discussed this with medical and dietetic experts who inform us that, in general, it's recommended that women with PCOS follow the same healthy diet and lifestyle changes recommended to the population as a whole. That is to limit fat (especially saturated fat), sugar, and salt intake, and include plenty of fruit, vegetables, and starchy carbohydrate food. Weight loss can certainly be of real benefit.


Food Optimizing is based on these current healthy eating guidelines, and is an ideal way to eat a balanced diet, lose weight, and maintain your new weight long term.


However, as with all medical conditions, we would always recommend you follow any medical or dietary advice given by your doctor.

Please note, this is not meant to be medical advice. Please consult with your physician or another medical professional before using Slimming World and follow their treatment advice.
