I was diagnosed with PCOS a few years ago, and beat the shit out of it with primal living (the proof is in the 5 month old that now runs my life!). Refusing fertility meds is what led me on my quest for self-medicating...and that's when I found this site! Read the book...the rest will follow.

Of course, when you begin, some weight will come off (most likely). While that's great, it's helpful to remember that it is about BOTH things that make the difference: the weight loss combined with the body beginning to heal itself.
If anything, with the exception of a possible couple weeks of carb-flu symptoms, this should do nothing but help her depression and stress levels. Eliminating the ups and downs that I used to get from grains & sugar has definitely helped me handle stress better, and be all-around more mellow and happy.
