I am sorry, that the other member said it is not suggested any more, however I have helped a woman to reverse her PSOS. The focus should be healthy weight loss and eating foods that are good for thyroid and PSOS. Plus there are a number of foods, to avoid when you have an under active thyroid.
Below are foods great for PSOS
D-chiro-inositol (DCI) offers a well-tolerated and effective alternative treatment for PCOS.
Soy lecithin is a food additive derived from soy beans that is used an emulsifying agent. Soy lecithin contains 2100 mg of D-Chiro-Inositol per 100 grams of foods, making it one of the best sources of D- Chiro-Inositol. I would personally suggest obtaining your soy lecithin from eating organic soy beans, made as beans or steamed and eaten from the pod; called edamame
Buckwheat is actually a fruit. Buckwheat can be separated into flour, kasha, grits, groats and buckwheat bran, which is also called farinetta. Farinetta contains 84.9 mg D-Chiro-Inositol per 100 grams of food. Buckwheat bran can easily be added to mixes of breads, pastas, pancakes and any other recipe that requires flour or breadcrumbs.
Fig Leaf Melon
Cucurbrita ficifolia, also known as fig leaf melon, fig leaf gourd or Asian pumpkin, is a squash native to North and South America and is commonly used to treat diabetes in Asia because of its high D-chiro- inositol content. The fruit is oblong and weighs over 10 lbs. when mature.
Carob syrup (used to make carob chips) and carob powder, which can be added to many baking recipes as chocolate substitutes, are also rich in D-chiro-inositol. You can add the powder to smoothies, or make carob clusters. (recipe in Lose Weight Gain Health Eating Out guide) Carob is going to be your friend when overcoming your drug addition to chocolate. Carob can be used in most places that chocolate is used. Malt sweetened chips are better than ones sweetened with white sugar. You can make hot carob drinks, carob cookies, add it to banana bread etc.
Beans, Legumes and Grain products
