You are not the only one. There is no such thing as "moderation" for me.
If I buy a loaf of raisin bread or something, I will chow on through the whole thing. I find it easier to resist once at the store and just NOT BUY and then I don't have to struggle to resist a million times at home.
I don't have that kind of reaction to Gluten free bread -- like Udi or a local millet. I have been tested for celiac but nothing came up that way. On the other hand, my allergist notes I am allergic to grass and wheat is a type of grass. And I notice less snot when I leave it out.
I have also been dealing with several vitamin deficiencies (B12, D) and I kicked in inositol (B8) as well since it is in the PCOS Treatment FAQ.
The inositol seemed to stop the night cravings but I don't know yet if that's a temporary thing or what.
I'm no doc, but maybe hearing my experience helps some?
Or looking at the various exchanges/nutrition articles I've posted here?
I am just now taking PCOS Diva's Jump start class. I decided to try it on and "be a newbie" again and see what's new in PCOS world. So much has changed online over the years! I can't tell you if it is any good yet or not, but so far it's promising. The website has a lot of free articles and tips -- you don't necessarily have to take the class. http://www.pcosdiva.com/
I have tried to just limit myself & it usually ends in binges. I am not good at putting limits or trying to figure out what else to eat when I have lived so long with just carbs everywhere. I am not big on meat like at all.
Then you know you cannot limit. You have to OMIT.
Then you are going to enter an experiment zone to figure out what you can REPLACE with -- what veggies, fruits, meats you enjoy. What your new favs are.
And carefully -- which starches (rice, oats, GF bread) don't trigger this response that you can eat reasonably and not binge.
Hang in there. I know it is challenging.
