In a 6 month study, women with PCOS followed either a high protein diet consisting of 70% or more energy from protein and fat (30% carbs) versus a standard diet of less than 45% protein and fat (55% carbs) to see the effects on weight loss and blood glucose levels. The results? The high protein diet had a greater weight loss, body fat loss, waist circumference and healthier blood glucose levels - 17 lbs weight loss [1.2 stone] compared to 7 lbs! Higher protein meals mean that signification weight loss can be achieved without ANY restriction of calories! This is because higher protein foods keep you fuller for longer so prevent you from snacking on carb loaded foods that cause your insulin levels to go crazy.
