Higher Protein to Carbohydrate Intake Benefits Women with PCOS

A recent 6 month controlled trial involving 57 women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) adhering to a high protein diet (40% of daily calories) was associated with greater weight loss and body fat loss compared to standard protein diets (less than 15% of daily calories).  In addition the researchers found that the high protein diet resulted in better blood glucose control - even after adjusting for weight loss. They concluded that a high protein diet benefits women with PCOS, independent of weight loss by improving glucose metabolism.
