I have the Insulin Resistance Diet which is about balancing all your carbs with the correct amount of protein. It does have quite a bit of PCOS info in it, although I'm not sure how up to date it is now. I know I bought the book before my youngest was born and he is about to turn 9! I did try that diet for a while, but honestly I found it simpler to just count carbs and/or do low carb. I still keep to the theory that if I am going to have sugary carbs, I should have some protein along with it, though. I really do think that helps prevent a huge spike in insulin and/or blood sugar.

I have the IR diet book too and found the plan very good (and it worked!) though it's not aimed at PCOS specifically. I tried another couple of books that were more PCOS focused but they were difficult to read and I found a lot of them were a waste of money. The Colette Harris book gets good reviews online but it wasn't great for me.

The Blood Sugar Solution by Dr Hyman. I got the recipe book from the library yesterday. Similar to the IR diet but even lower in carbs. Specifically geared to folks with diabetes or IR.
